Candlemaking sisters Marsha Martin and Lori Woods have sniffed out a winning process: They smell something they like and then re-create the scent in wax. They like some truly distinctive stuff, so that means you can burn Clean Undies, UPS Man or Amy's Wedding. A diaper change triggered the business's birth. While in a candle shop, Martin had to attend to her baby; the restroom was in the middle of the shop's factory. What she saw that day helped lead to the hand-poured, strong and long-lasting candles that she and Woods make today. There's a scent here for everyone: Hot Apple Pie for the hungry, Baby Jesus for the religious, Jingle Bells for the festive. On special occasions, 5B even offers something good to taste: beer and margaritas.
