New Year’s Resolutions

There are always ways in which all of us can improve ourselves, our lives and the lives of those around us. That’s the beauty of life, isn’t it? And the New Year always gives us an opportunity to press that start button and set new intentions for the next 365 days (366 for this Leap Year!).

After careful consideration of the many wonderful resolutions you may wish to set for yourself, we’ve compiled a list of changes to make in 2020 that can help strengthen our community and your bond with it:

1. Shop Local

When you shop local, you’re not only helping a neighbor live their dreams, you’re also recirculating money into the local economy which helps to improve everything from local moral to the street quality and school systems! Luckily, Ballston Spa is rich with every type of business you could need to thrive in a community like Sage Wine & Spirits for celebratory beverages, Curtis Lumber for home improvement, Agway for pet food, Brookside Nursery for plants, O’Brien Pharmacy for prescriptions, and Paint-n-Gogh and The Candle Collective for being creative.

Shop Small

2. Give Back

The Candle Collective loves to host activities for fundraising events throughout the year. This past year we were fortunate to be able to work with numerous local organizations. Reach out today to discuss your event ideas with us!

3. Spend More Time with Loved Ones

We host Private Parties! It doesn’t have to be your birthday, or even your bachelorette party, if spending more time with loved ones is on your resolutions list this year, book us for a private party and get everyone together for some candle making fun ASAP!

4. Get Involved

There is no better way to feel better connected to your local community than to get involved! Local organizations such as the Ballston Spa Business & Professional Association, Ballston Spa Rotary and Ballston Spa Lions are always looking for volunteers.

5. Learn More

If learning more is on your list this year, you’re in luck! Our beautiful Village is rich with history and has no shortage of fun resources for your benefit. Visit Brookside Museum and The National Bottle Museum for adventure and education.
