Hidden Gem Alert-The Whiffle Tree Candle Shop and Artisan's Marketplace

It's a Fall ritual for me to make a trip up to The Whiffle Tree Candle Shop in Billerica, MA. I try to time my visit when foliage is at it's peak as the property is surrounded by trees.

Nature lovers would enjoy this spot. There's a variety of trees, wildlife running around and a peaceful stillness. It's like stepping back to simpler times.

The leaves crunched beneath my feet as I toured the property on an exceptionally warm Fall day.

Foliage has been delayed by our warm temperatures in New England so I didn't see peak color on this weekend. It was still gorgeous.

I made a little video too which you can view on my Facebook page.

I think this is the candle making shop. Don't you love the way the leaves scatter and accumulate on the roof? The colors of all the buildings give a feeling of history.

The day itself couldn't have been prettier. I was so happy it didn't rain on the day I visited.

The Whiffle Tree is open all year round. Looks like they are preparing for a New England Winter.

 Hmm, I have a very similar pair of vintage skis.

More rustic charm on the property.

The trees towered over the buildings, the covered bridge, and the Spring Water station.

I never tasted the spring water from here but I often see people filling their containers.

The covered bridge is a favorite spot for family photos. In fact, I saw a photo session at the Whiffle Tree when I visited.

My favorite candle scent is the New England Apple. I bought it in the smaller jelly jar size.

There are always so many choices of fragrances from Seaglass to North Woods. Something for everyone.

The shop is like a country store. You can buy pickles from the barrels.

And many flavors of candy.  Love those jars!

Of course, Pumpkin Spice is the fragrance of the month. 

This place is a photographer's delight!

Notice the bend in the trees. So cool

The candle shop has a chalet feel to it. I think I shall have to visit when the snow falls.

I took a few photos with my phone too. They always look more vibrant, not sure why.

This is quintessential New England. A covered bridge bathed in fallen leaves.

This little boy escaped from the photo shoot I was watching. I guess he would rather play.

A parting shot before I drove away with candles and fudge in tow. Until next time, Whiffle Tree.

How have I never heard of this place? I swear, you find the best places to visit, Elaine! I need to get out of my house more! Hope all has been well with you. I've been MIA for quite some time in the blog world. Hoping to be a bit more regular from this point on!
Happy Fall!!
