Free Candles and Deeply Discounted Lamps: It’s The Weekend of Light

It’s supposed to be 104 degrees tomorrow, so my coping plan involves icy libations and a pool. Full stop. But a trip to Ft. Worth’s icily air conditioned museums is also tempting.

Plus opting for the latter provides a handy excuse to pop into J. McIntyre Home in Arlington in route to take advantage of their summer candle giveaway. A purchase of $100 or more gets you a choice of a free Fairfax & King diffuser, 14 oz candle, or 8 oz candle in a swell driftwood box. Hello summer hostess gifts.

For those of you not willing to brave the heat for a road trip, there’s also the Meletio warehouse sale with 25-80% off all sorts of lighting, home accents, and electrical supplies.

Happy home shopping. Stay cool.
