So, here’s the story behind the candle holders…
I almost left without them because I couldn’t find them anywhere. I was upset because I have, oh like 10 coupons!! I found an associate and asked her if they had ANY holders (they didn’t even have any w/candles) she told me they were out. As I was walking away, she caught me and said she noticed some on the very top. They were the ones w/candles and were over $7. Um, no. I asked her for JUST the holders and she told me they don’t even exist!!! I told her that last week I bought 2 from an end cap, so I knew they existed, I just wanted know it they still had them. She was adamant that they were refills, NOT the holders. Okay, whatever. She went back to what she was doing on the aisle over, and I got to peeking at the top shelf. Lo’ and behold…there were 2 holder ONLY!!!! Hmmm…so much for not existing!! Sometimes it comes in REAL handy to be 5’11″!
