The Things We Love

Each visit to Yvie’s is a delightful treat for the senses and a truly uplifting experience. Discover a wide range of nature-inspired products and carefully crafted items that you will surely love and treasure. Our place is also a haven for local artists where they can show and sell their creations.

All-Natural Soy Candles

Our store in Alexandria, Alabama carries an extensive line of candle products available in four, eight, twelve, and sixteen ounce containers. They also come in melter form. Choose from a wide range of scents such as caramelized pralines, berry tangerine, island breeze, and more!

Yvie's Pure Soy Candles are produced locally by using eco-friendly materials such as eco-cotton, lead-free wicks, and pure soy wax. Our soy wax candles are clean-burning candles that produce excellent scent throw.

You can play a part in saving our environment! By using eco-friendly products, we are able to provide the gift of retaining a clean environment for future generations.

We also encourage recycling. A recycling rebate is available towards your next purchase with a return of the reusable container. Take advantage of this opportunity and, in turn, help maintain our environment!

Shea Butter and Oatmeal Handmade Soaps 

Our hand-poured shea butter soaps can include different types of natural ingredients such as oatmeal, mint leaves, and poppy seeds. Each soap bar is packaged separately and comes in two different sizes.

Our handmade soaps are available in many beautiful shapes and scents. Always handcrafted with all-natural ingredients, you're sure to find one that suits your body and personality.

Shea and Mango Butter Lotion Bars 

The newest and possibly most decadent product we offer is our all-natural handmade lotion bars. These lotions are made of different waxes and butters and come in solid form. To use them, hold them between the palms of your hands and let just a bit melt and then rub it in. Silken heaven! 

We also produce them in bottled form. Check out our collection of delicately scented soy and yogurt lotions.

Our yarns are priced at a special value for our knitters who would rather spend money on buying more yarn. After all, we can never have enough yarn in our stash! Our team continuously finds yarn products at lower prices, and we want to pass those savings to our customers.

We aspire to carry new inventory at least every other week, but remember that the lower priced yarns are picked up at limited quantities. Stop by every so often to see what kind of deals we have to offer. There is nothing better than buying high-quality yarn at a bargain price!
