Angel Candle Chimes
Somewhere over the years I lost my Angel Candle Chimes. I was so delighted to find this in your catalog and ordered it right away. The surprise and delight in my grandchildren's eyes as they watched the angels turn and ring the chimes brought a smile to my face. Thank you, Vermont Country Store for helping me to creating new memories from my old ones!

As a child I had a friend whose family had a set of these chimes. I always loved them and was excited to find them for sale. Unfortunately I have not been able to get mine to work. The angels look like they are about to turn, but only move slightly. They never turn and chime.

angel chimes that don't ring
I had an angel chime growing up and way very excited to see one in your catalog. When it arrived I put it together and lit the candles. It went around like it was supposed to put when the metal sticks hit the bells it made no noise. That was the fun of having the angle was hearing the bells ring. What a disappointment.

Not What I Remembered
At Christmas time as I grew up in the 1950's my family would bring out our Angel Candle Chimes. It would be assemble and the candles lit and the sweet chimes would begin as the candles cast a warm glow around the room.
Unfortunately this item is a poor and cheaply made version of the original product. All the metal parts are thin. The original had a center post that was not flimsy and the angels didn't bend when you handled them.
I expected better than this from VCS.

A Childhood Memory
My wife saw the Angel Candle Chimes in the catalogue and instantly cited fond childhood memories of the one her family had acquired. She recalled that it often did not work properly. I purchased this item as a surprise and brought a little joy to her from the past. A little polishing of the pin where the Angels pivots and it works beautifully and sits proudly on display.

I can still remember the time as a youth my mom was coming down the stairs from the attic with all our Christmas decorations. She pulled out a very beautiful angelic metal decoration and set it on the table. At night she put in 4 candles on this lovely piece with 4 angels floating in mid air under little round bells. She precided to light the 4 candles. I thought i went to heaven when hearing their melodic tinkle as the flames forced them to fly and chime quicker and quicker. Moments I will never forget. Thank you Vermont country store for taking me back home. ; )
