Cypress Bridge - Abilene

From the moment you reach the entrance of Cypress Bridge, it's clear that this is a classy and cozy store. It's also a huge place, with top-of-the-line kitchenware along one wall, including a rare retail display of items from the Culinary Institute of America. Additional household decor items appear throughout the shop.
At the back counter, visitors can choose from dozens of scents before shop owners create their custom body care products, from massage oil to body lotion.
Customers may also buy scoops full of potpourri, in scents such as Fresh Linen or Warm Sunflowers, for $1.99 per ounce (2010 price).
But this family-owned destination's greatest claim to fame is their hand-poured candles. The scents of their votives and chunky columns have included Lemon Grass, Apple Cinnamon and Eucalyptus Spearmint.

And it's not just retail customers who love Cypress Bridge's huge variety of longlasting candles; their Winter Warmth candles also found their way into gift bags, at the 2005 Billboard Music Awards.
