Dollar Store Candles
You could fill your entire dollar store with candles and never exhaust all the possibilities. Candles are almost infinite in their variety. There are jar candles, tapers, columns, pillars, votives and tea warmers. All of these basic shapes come in a variety of colors and scents that increase the possibilities exponentially. And we haven't even mentioned the amazing range of novelty and shaped candles!
The wonderful thing about stocking candles is that they are constantly being used up. Candles are something that people purchase over and over, even if they choose the same type, color and scent. But people are seldom content with one type. They buy different candles for different rooms of the house: aromatherapy candles for the bedroom and bath, tapers for the dining room, pillars for the den. People vary their candle purchases to reflect the seasons, and especially holidays.
Candles are huge sellers during the Christmas and winter holiday season, both as decorations for the purchaser and as gifts. But that's not the only candle season. Put out a display of candles in pretty pastels in the spring, in bright primary colors for the summer, and in earth tones during the autumn. And of course there will be bunny candles, piña colada candles, and turkey candles as well.

One of the most popular types of candles is the votive. These small, short candles are used for a variety of purposes. They can be utilized singly as subtle accents, or they can be placed in holders as part of a larger display. They are also used to heat aroma lamps and oil burners. Votives are so useful and prevalent that they are typically sold in bulk in bags. While they are available in colors and scents, they are usually white and scentless, so they suit any décor.
Tapers are also popular. These thin, tall candles are tapered at both ends and are usually six to 12 inches long. They must be placed in candelabras or other holders to keep them upright. Tapers can be made of paraffin or beeswax and are available in a rainbow of colors and scents.
Pillars are also popular choices. They resemble tapers in terms of height, but they are thicker--two to eight inches in diameter or larger--and have flat ends. Pillars are convenient because they can stand on their own without holders, or they can be placed on small dishes or coasters. They are also available in many colors and scents.
