High Country Candles
1098 Main St., Blowing Rock
HOURS: Mon.–Sat. 10 a.m.–6 p.m., Sun. noon–6 p.m.
Candles of all shapes, sizes, and colors are stocked at High Country Candles, which is spread across several rooms in the historic Martin House.
All of the candles are handmade on-site by owner Cyndi Ziegler, who narrates the process while she dips, dyes, and carves the candles at a workstation in the front of the store.
The shop sells pillar candles, taper candles, and jar candles as well as an unusual assortment of colorful candles that have been molded into fanciful shapes.
