Wildflower Wax Grand Opening


There's a new kid in (my) town. Meet Jennifer, owner of Wildflower Wax Candle Studio and boutique.

Wildflower features hand pour candles, artwork, handcrafted and vintage jewelry, gifts, clothing, purses, and a really cool selection of vintage cowboy boots. Basically everything I love!
Before I even knew of Jennifer....I had heard of Jennifer and her Wildflower Store. It's pretty cool when you have a reputation, one built on unique items and great customer service, proceed you. Last week, while I was at the beach my childhood neighbor friend Julie protested her love of Wildflower. She was mourning that the store was relocating to my hometown of Helena, from her hometown of Homewood. Then just yesterday I got a phonecall from my BFF "The Boss", telling me about the new store and about Jennifer, knowing I would be interested in her wares.
And I have to say....I am impressed. I (heart) Wildflower Wax!
It's so ....so.....me. And I am sure it is so you too!
Let me show you around the store. You will see why I love Wildflower....

On Friday's Jennifer serves Sweet Tea and Moonpies to her customers. Southern manners at it's best. And get this.....Jennnifer of Wildflower is also a blogger! You can find her blog here. Go, say hello (be it in person or on her blog), and please tell her that Leigh sent you!
Wildflower is in Old Town Helena, in the old dairy building by the railroad tracks.
Be sure to drop in, welcome her and shop a little too.

*** I wanted to mention that little count down on my sidebar to my two year blogging anniversary. It happens next month. And me...well I am always looking for a good excuse to have a party. I will talk more about what it will all entail in a future post. But I will say, it includes giveaways. Several of them. I have had some really great businesses and bloggers want to participate in a week worth of great giveaway's for the second annual Leighlapooluza. It's not to late if you want to join in too. I will have more information in a future post. Plan to be here.
***Finally, Be sure to drop back in tomorrow and link up for Thrifty Thursday. Don't think for a second that I didn't find time to thrift while I was beaching it last week, because I did. True, it was brief, but it was successful. See you tomorrow (this evening) for Thrifty Thursday. I enjoy dropping by your blog and seeing your thrifty treasures!
Thanks for dropping by Bloggeritaville!
