This emporium is outside the Old Deerfield neighborhood, back on Route 5. The Yankee Candle Company is an empire built on Americans' insatiable love for candles that are scented like cider donuts or vanilla cupcakes. This flagship locale, though, is way more than just a store: It features a year-round Bavarian Christmas Village, a large toy shop, a homemade fudge stand, a candy store, a home furnishings department, an old-fashioned candle-dipping demonstration area, and a stage where the Candle Mountain Boys sing every 30 minutes.
