Taking Custom Orders for Local Made Halloween Plaques

Most Halloween decorations are overpriced and produced overseas with flimsy materials. Why not support your local economy with a Halloween decoration locally made in Battle Creek, Michigan?

At the Battle Creek Gift Shop, you can find wooden Halloween plaques made by us on our laser engraver. These wooden plaques use contrasting wood finishes and laser cut objects to create holiday decorations. You can buy either of the signs pictured here or make a custom order for a plaque, ornament, or refrigerator magnet with your spookiest personal message.

For the witches out there who need to help people find them, take a close look at our “The Witch is In or Out” sign. An adjustable mini sign on a hook allows you to change your status from in to out.

Soy Candles and Wax Melts – Local Made in Battle Creek, Michigan


At the Battle Creek Gift Shop, you’ll always find a big selection of soy candles in many fine scents. We also have scented wax melts.

Clean Burning and Less Irritating to Allergies

If you’re familiar with the benefits of soy candles, you’ll know that they provide long burning times and no exposure to the carcinogenic soots released by petrochemical paraffin candles. If a candle does not say what it is made out of – like many that you’ll find at the big stores – then it’s probably made from any cheap goo leftover from the oil refining process.

Scott makes almost all of the soy candles that we sell. He hand pours them and takes care to use the proper size wick for the size of jar. Did you know that the diameter of a candle determines the wick size. If you’ve ever bought a candle and had it burn a hole down into the wax and go out, it was because the wick was not the right size.

The majority of our candles are priced $6.99 to $8.99.

Available scents as of this writing:

  • Cake
  • Chocolate Fudge (popular)
  • Coffee (popular)
  • Vanilla
  • Smoke & Odor Eliminator
  • Gardenia
  • Grapefruit & Mango
  • Cinnamon Stick
  • Lemon Pound Cake
  • Rose
  • Citron & Mandarin
  • Frankincense & Myrrh
  • Peach
  • Apple Harvest
  • Caramel Popcorn
  • Black Cherry
  • Caramelized Pralines
  • Black Raspberry Vanilla
  • Pumpkin Pie

Candles are a wonderful way to add warmth to your home, clear out odors, and enhance your mood. They make great gifts too, especially for a house-warming party.

Pop into the store at 1778 W. Columbia Ave. on the corner of 28th Street Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and start sniffing out your favorites.
