Meredith Thompson of Creative Elementz paints a door at the Candle Kitchen Friday as Stacy McCowen looks on. The Candle Kitchen is located behind Candle Queen Candles store at 500 Shawnee St.
McCowen, owner of Candle Queen Candles, said she's moved her candle-making operation from her basement to the Candle Kitchen. McCowen said she's been making candles for 10 years.
The Candle Kitchen area normally will be off limits to the public. But McCowen is having an open house for the area from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. today.
