Ok what does it matter the owners sexual preference!! They are TWO great men who worked their butts off to get where they are an to reach their dream!! YES I am friend of theirs but I have also bought product from them and it is amazing and worth the money that was spent!! It kind of goes back to the old saying " you have nothing nice to say well then DON'T say anything at all" you don't know these two men and they deserve respect because they worked twice as hard to get where they are because ppl like some here have no respect and will try to degrade them because of their sexual preference that should mean nothing if their products are good and obviously it is when you have ppl who don't know u that well ordering from u when they live out of state!!!! Take ur negative comments somewhere else!!!!!

I wish any new business the best, I really do, but a candle shop in Greeneville, really? That might fly in Knoxville or a larger city, but Johnson City, Kingsport or Bristol would have a hard time supporting a shop that specializes in candles. Who opened the shop? Word of advice, try to diversify your product line, without getting into everything. I own several small retail locations in Gatlinburg, Myrtle Beach, Knoxville and Nashville and feel as if I have fair insight into what it takes to build a successful business. I grew up in Greeneville and keep a house here, but have yet to feel comfortable in starting a small business, much less a candle shop...

You are absolutly right! Yes I'm friends with them too! I've ordered several candles from them myself and I will continue to purchase more! These guys worked their butts off to get where they are and continue to work full time jobs as well!

Yeah, and foam helmets for dumbasses like you who think you're funny. Mark my words, the business will not make it.

Matches would be a great add on sale. I think they should diversify their products a little while still being to relate them, like maybe also offer smoke alarms and fire extinguishers.....

The state provides all my helmets, no need to buy one. I'm sure the gentlemen that own this business will contact you when they diversify into Oriental Trading crap or shot glasses with Greeneville on them. Probably will look elsewhere for a sense of humor.

(Said in a consoling tone...).....there, there tender young flesh.....I thought you were funny!:) hahahahahahha! See! I laughed...

Seriously, it takes a lot of nerve to open a business under any circumstances much less in this economy in a small town. I admire anyone with the ambition to open a store or restaurant. Their success is success for us all in some way, whether it's from increased tax revenue, diversity of a new place to shop other than Walmart, or perhaps a draw for other new business. I wish them the very best!

I wish them the best too, but could blow holes in their business plan.

Thank you for seeing my comment for what it was- a lighthearted ribbing not meant to offend. You are ok in my book.

Perhaps they should consider having a grand opening and wine tasting celebration!

I wish we could still have things like that in our society today. Unfortunately there is too much liability. The threat of lawsuits if someone had an accident after leaving is too great. It would be a shame for these men to lose their dream because of a fender bender.

They are amazing men who have a great shop. I have been there and bought their products. I wish them nothing but success. As for the short minded men on This site keep out of their store if you don't like their lifestyle and shut the fuck up. I am sure you have bigger things to worry about then two men trying make something of themselves and be successful.
