Natural Awakenings New York City

Custom Candles Opens White Plains Location

Custom Candles, the Bedford Hills shop that offers eco-friendly candles, natural health products, jewelry and a variety of gifts, has opened a second location in The Westchester, in White Plains. Both stores are open seven days a week. Marcie Manfredonia, owner of Custom Candle Co., says her goal was to open the second store in plenty of time for the holiday season, as her Bedford Hills store has become a popular destination for gift shopping. “We create beautiful gift baskets, and we offer our own, unique soy custom candles; one-of-a-kind jewelry from local artisans; and high-end candles and body-care products. Our Bedford Hills location also offers a full line of CBD products.” Custom Candles will have a booth at two upcoming fall festivals: the Hudson Valley Wine Fest, on September 8 and 9, and Mount Kisco’s SeptemberFest, on September 14 and 15. Manfredonia also owns the Bedford Hills Wine & Beer Bar, located at 27 Depot Plaza, next to Custom Candles. The bar hosts special events such as live jazz nights, and private gatherings such as team fundraisers. On September 7, from 6 to 9 p.m., it will host a wine-tasting party, featuring a rosé, pinot grigio and pinot noir. On September 19, it will host a painting party; all supplies are included in the $34.99 ticket cost (call 914218-8357 for tickets). And every Monday from 4 to 11 p.m., the bar will host Monday Night Football, so fans can come root for their favorite team. For more info, call 914-241-1010 or visit See ad on back cover.
