Now Open in the Convention District!
We are thrilled to announce that our seventh location is now open in the Convention District in downtown Columbus!
Located on High Street directly between the Convention Center and the North Market, we are honored to call the historic Yankee Trader building home. Long-time Columbus residents will remember Yankee Trader as the massive store famous for its eclectic assortment of party supplies. The store closed its doors in 2010, and since then has remained empty, waiting for the right tenants to inhabit its special space.
This store features a sprawling black maple live edge fragrance bar with tin ceilings and hardwood floors restored back to their original glory. And the best part? The Candle Lab Convention District also has a bonus space on the lower level below our retail store. This Private Event Center is full of character and warmth and is ideal for hosting corporate events, rehearsal dinners, team meetings, and more.
If you're looking for a good excuse to visit, come pour a candle, then hit up the North Market to tackle your holiday shopping list with their dizzying collection of spices, meat and seafood, fresh baked bread, and gourmet chocolates. You can also make a night of it with a trip to see the first-place Columbus Blue Jackets in action, just a short walk from our door.
For store hours, parking, and other information, visit The Candle Lab - Convention District store page. Simply stop-in anytime to pour a candle, or click here to plan a candle-pouring party for five or more!
