Did you know that the candle has been used in homes since as early as 206 BC? During this time, candles were a bit different than we know them today. They were often made from whale fat or tallow, and were strictly functional for bringing light into the home. Thankfully, we no longer rely on candles for our only source of light- unless the power goes out! Now, candles are used for decoration and to set a certain ambiance in a space. At Cottons R Us, you will find a large selection of candles and candle holders such as hurricanes, sconces, and stands to match your interior design style. Get creative and add a personal touch by using these items in a DIY project.
