Disneyland actually had a shop on West Main Street entirely devoted to candles…and books. This gent looks like he's doing bicep curls with the very ornate candle in his hands in this circa 1974 photo.
I remember in the 70s how candles such as the ones seen here were all the rage.
Zooming in, you can see some of the books that were sold in this shop, as well as two of the young ladies who sold the waxy merchandise.
Another area of the shop:
A closeup of the window shows what I believe to be the Flower Market, which sold plastic flowers. I am sure they went very well with the plastic slipcovers on the family sofa!
Nothing says love like a flower candle. I'll bet this guy made a hit with his girlfriend when he presented it to her!
Light a candle and journey on over to my main website for more.
