Candles are a natural extension of the Fiesta lifestyle and allow our fans to enjoy the beloved brand in many different ways.”

“The fragrances are pleasant and natural-smelling, but are not overwhelming,” explains Brinkman. “They embody the personalities of the Fiesta colors.”
Available in four different sizes, made in the USA; the quality paraffin Fiesta candles have an extensive burn time. Look for them in the following options:
• 3” x 4” Pillar Candles: 65-70 hours of burn time, MSRP $12.99

The Filled Jar Candle comes with a brushed stainless metallic lid that is embossed with the signature Fiesta dancing lady and logo. It is perfect for snuffing out candle flames and eliminating smoke from traveling through the room once the flame is extinguished.
The 8 oz. Filled Jar Candles will be sold in a keepsake Fiesta box, decorated on the outside with the signature Fiesta dancing lady and logo and stripes in various Fiesta colors. The inside of the box has a satin lining.
Look for Fiesta candles in fine department stores like Bonton; as well as specialty stores or online at www.homerlaughlin.com. They are scheduled to ship on September 1, 2010.
