Ferrell Knotts

Ferrell Knotts "Candlemaker", was our father and he created this candle over 30 years ago. Many people who visited our store in Walnut Creek, Ohio, still remember him and the candles he made for them. We are now making candles for their children's weddings. I still have mine from 1974 so you can see this is a keepsake. It is a hollow candle with your invitation on it. The invitation becomes a part of the candle and a wick which is two wicks that burn into one flame.
