Legendary Candles has experienced festival closures and postponements since March 15th. After a bit of sorting the situation out, we would like to announce our response to the COVID-19 social distancing and self-quarantining efforts. We tried to come up with the simplest way for you to get the candles that you’re not able to get at Sherwood and Scarborough (we’ve still got our fingers crossed that we will be able to safely see you all there). Until then, our Stay At Home Sale is here!
Everything is on sale for our Stay At Home Sale, 19% off on top of our existing multi candle discounts. Shipping on domestic orders of $50 or more is also available for free. The discount is automatically applied in your cart. All you need to do is add the items you want and our website will take care of the rest. The sale is on until April 30th for now.
So, if you need candles to brighten your day or help clear the air inside. We’ve got you.
We’ve been cleaning and sanitizing all of our inventory as it comes back from public shows. We just received a shipment of fragrance oils and have plenty of wax. If you need candles, we’re ready for your order.
For the next 5 days, we will have Mint Rx on sale. Buy one 32 Ounce candle, get one 4 Ounce candle for free. Just put in the Coupon Code: 324RX at checkout. This only works once per transaction so if you want to do it more, you’ll have to do more than one checkout.

Over the weekend of August 13th, the performing company at TRF started Dress Rehearsal and it was great! The smell of the bakeries making their first batches of baked goods brought a great new idea to our minds. So we decided to update The Road to TRF with the next Fragrance Family as…..*bum bum bum* Gourmet!
Now who doesn’t love great scents that remind us of pies, cookies, and baked goods? No one, that’s who! So if purchase you any -Votive 4 pack in Gourmet, you will get 4 votive holders for free!

Here we are 49 days from the opening of TRF and we are excited! As we go to our booth to get it ready for our amazing friends to come visit us, we wanted to bring you updates and a few Deals! Because we are on the Faire Site often in these leading months, we often have moment to pause and appreciate things. First, let me say, the Site takes a bunch of work to get ready. Since we where there just recently, we noticed the grounds crew making it pretty. Things like cutting grass, pruning plants, and bringing in new soil for the gardens.
Just imagine it!
So, here we are a candle company being bombarded by the scents of Outside! Grounds keepers cutting the green grass. Gardeners pouring soil around new plants. Us sweeping leaves out of the booth. Other booths preparing their gardens. Since we love our plants, we are already out there tending our potted flowers.
This got us thinking and we had our first thought about The Road To TRF. As we walk down this road, giving you updates on what we are doing and what’s going on with the site, we will be offering Special Deals on things the site reminds us of. Yep, that’s right, New Deals!!! So what is our first Special Offer, you ask?
Because everyone loves fresh cut grass and new soil, we are putting everything in our Earthy fragrance family on Special.

An -18 Count Votive box of assorted Earthy Fragrances for only $18.
We have 49 days until TRF so these offers will last 6 days each and highlight a different fragrance family and a different stage of set-up. We will update our blog of The Road every 5 days and update our Offers at the same time. Check back, Like, Comment, Share and enjoy! Also, check out texrenfest.com for their constant stream of fun and excitement.

Since early 2012, we have been working on moving our bookkeeping to QuickBooks Online for a variety of reasons. Probably the most compelling reason is that we have added new Renaissance Festivals to our line up for the year. As we move from place to place and those that need access to this data can become separated by 1000 miles or so, Intuit’s online offering is presently the most affordable solution that we have come across. It has some interesting features that allow classifying income and expense by location.
The road to using this tool has had a few bumps, especially since some updates to my preferred browser, Google Chrome, seem to have caused some hiccups in using QuickBooks Online. Using it requires allowing pop-ups from Intuit and QuickBooks Online, more specifically. For some reason around the time Chrome pushed the 29.0.1547.57 (Official Build 217859) updates, Chrome users have not been able to use the functions in QuickBooks Online that require pop-ups even when they were enabled for that domain and/or website. The symptoms that I noticed are that despite the QuickBooks Online software thinking that pop-ups are being blocked, I receive no warning from Chrome that I have blocked them. None of the solutions offered by Intuit worked, including completely disabling the pop-up blocker (I really didn’t like this one) and downloading the Chrome app (which doesn’t really seem to be an app as far as I can tell but a set of instructions to Chrome to set a bookmark and set permissions as appropriate). I have found a work around that seems to have solved the problem and it is pretty simple.
Some preprocess information about my operating environment:
I run Chrome Version 32.0.1700.77 on Mac OS X 10.9.1. I have the following extensions installed Ad Block 2.6.18, CSS Refresh 2.0, Dashlane 188.8.131.52587, Evernote Web Clipper 6.0.8, Google Docs 0.5, PageRank Status 184.108.40.206, PHP documentation – PHP.net 1.3.1, and QR Code Generator 1.4.103. I have a non-default theme installed in Chrome.
Fix Chrome to Work with QuickBooks Online
First, go to your extensions in Chrome through Settings > Extensions and disable all of them. Don’t worry, they will not go away.
Chrome menu to access Extensions
Chrome Extensions Manager
Next, log into QuickBooks Online and verify site permissions by clicking on the green padlock icon to the left of the website address. You need to verify or change the permissions so that Allow Pop-ups says “Allowed by You.”
Website Permissions for QuickBooks Online
With all extensions disabled, navigate to a function that requires pop-ups to work in QuickBooks Online. The two most common are New Customer and Manage Users > New User. They pop-ups will most likely suddenly start working like they should be.
I supposed that there was likely a conflict between one of my extensions and something that QuickBooks Online was doing in their code. So, finally, you will need to re-enable (You installed them originally for a reason, right?) your extensions one-by-one and then reload the QuickBooks Online page and retest whether or not QuickBooks is still functioning as expected. I wound up with no issues after re-enabling all of my extensions. I maintain a fairly small array of them anyway.
If after enabling an extension you suddenly have an issue, I would further recommend disabling all of the other extensions except the potentially offending one and retesting. If it still causes the problem, perhaps you have found a truly conflicting extension.
