It's crap made in China, and most probably contains lead, maybe other toxins... and all the other ramifications of buying stuff made in China... Sometimes, not often, the "prettiness" of something outweighs my social conscience. Such was the case today at Targets One Spot. Well, what USED to be Targets One Spot. Mostly now, the stuff that catches my eye is $3. instead of $1. They mix the two together so that sometimes you think it's a buck until you get to the check-out. A young lady was telling me that as we both were picking out candles.
Anyhow, back to the subject at hand. I read about these on a favorite blog called Target Addict. They looked really pretty but I wasn't interested in spending $3.00 on candles I don't need and may not want to burn, because of the above mentioned issues. Darn, they were pretty in person too. Faux mercury glass. As I was sniffing the scents, Pumpkin Butter, Fall Day, Autumn Air, Cypress Cedar, another lady noticed and asked me about them. She then decided she might need 10 of them for tables at an upcoming fall wedding! Good thing I had already picked my 4 and had them in my cart. She wanted them to all be the same scent, but I convinced her that it might be nice to have them different, since all the glasses were so pretty. Anyhow, with my 4 and her 10, we cleaned them out. She thought she might go to another Target and get even more. Part of the appeal to me is just the cute little glasses, which if one does burn the candles, could be used for mini vases later.
