There was once a time when you were able to walk into a store filled with movies ranging from “It Happened One Night” to “The Matrix.” For patrons of the old brick and mortar stores like Blockbuster and Hollywood Video, one could spend hours browsing the selection for movie night. If you’re feeling nostalgic for those days and want to go on a time travel trip- there’s now a candle for that. Maybe not physically back in time but definitely give you a trip down memory lane.
We present to you the Video Store candle.
The Video Store Candle

• Top Notes: Butter, Carpet Fibers, Dust, Sugar

I’m going to get this candle for a few reasons. One the library I’m making in my new home will smell perfect since it’s a library of mostly dvd’s and a few VHS tapes. And second I used to work at Blockbuster and I REALLY miss it. I can’t express enough how nice it was having customer interactions and getting to know your regulars. Movie discussions and recommendations and then the explicit joy of alphabetizing the movie wall. It’s something I’m a bit sad my kids won’t get to experience as their first jobs. But that’s life and at least I’ll have this candle to make me feel better.
