One of Twin Cities-based Thymes most popular scents is Frasier Fir. (Thymes created its own spelling for "fraser.") Today only, the Frasier Fir candle WAS 50 percent off if you used the promo code frasier641. It's a great winter scent and very authentic.

Unfortunately, thosuands of the candles were sold in a few hours and the promo was discontinued by 9:15 a.m., but you can sign up for early notifications at their website at the bottom right corner of the homepage.


You rarely find the Frasier Fir line at the famous annual warehouse sale, but I have seen some of the other items in the line (not the candle). This year the sale will be Oct. 6-8 at the same location as last year at 63 St. Anthony Parkway, Mpls, 55418,

It's a hugely popular sale. Go early and try to check out quickly or be prepared to wait  in a long line. Hours at the sale are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and Friday (Oct. 6-7) and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday (Oct. 8).
