Married Greek expats Louis and Yvoni Ioannou opened this candle shop in the fall of 2009, only months after moving to the States. Like the store’s color scheme—orange and black—the selection of large pillar candles here is bold. Yvoni makes all the candles in the store’s basement, forming the molds, dying them in bright shades, and embellishing with adornments like dried flowers, seashells, and cinnamon sticks. Essential oils infuse each with a subtle scent, like vanilla or clover, which wafts through the small space. Candles can be customized with your choice of molding or scent, and gift baskets are available.
