ASPEN BAY TENT SALE | MS
Location: 400 Industrial Park Road Starkville, MS | February 4, 2016
What better way to end a long week of job searching then going to a candle tent sale by Aspen Bay the DPM Fragrance company store. I strongly support trying to shop local so once I found out DPM products are hand-poured in Starkville, Mississippi I knew I needed to check it out. So me and a girlfriend made the trip out. Sure enough we were glad we came.
Today was the opening day but the sale also continues to the 5th and 6th of February from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. There is also plenty of parking opportunity. I would recommend getting there early though because the warehouse starts to get crowded as the day goes on.
Once inside you have the choice to grab either a small $20, medium $45 or large $75 bag to fill with candles. The candles are not available for individual sale. They accept cash or card when you checkout. Once you grab your bag it’s time for the fun part. The warehouse is set up with isles of candles. We walked all over the warehouse just picking and choosing what scents we liked most and added them to our bags. I would recommend wearing something a little bit comfy since there is a lot of bending over to search for the perfect candle!
For my first time at the tent sale I went with the medium size bag. I decided to get a mix of large and small candles. Already I feel like I have enough to last me a solid year. While selecting candles I also tried to find ones where I liked both the scent and the container it was in. Therefore once the candle is done I can find a secondary use for it. Maybe to make some cute planters and fuel my succulent obsession.
Overall it was a great first adventure and I encourage you all to check it out. Let me know your thoughts and feel free to share some of your cool finds!
