Athenian Candle Co

Arts & Crafts in West Loop & Near West Side

Whether you’re hoping to get lucky at bingo, remove a jinx or fall in love, this Greektown store promises to help with its array of candles, incense, love potions and miracle oils. Though it has been making candles for Orthodox churches on-site since 1919, the owners aren’t devoted to one religion: you’ll find Buddha statues, Pope holograms, Turkish evil-eye stones and tarot cards.
