Kris Lorensen started Cryin’ Creek Candles in 2000 and added to it with The Farmhouse Lounge in 2008. "The candle shop" carries a wide variety of Nebraska products for sale, including food, jewelry, wine and home décor. The Farmhouse Lounge offers a large selection of domestic and import beers, as well as liquor and wine. It’s a great place to do some shopping (contributing to Cass County and Nebraska’s economies) while enjoying a country atmosphere (complete with chickens, cattle, horses, dogs and cats). Oh . . . did we mention that Cryin' Creek Candles are the best-smelling candles on the planet?!
The shop is built into Kris' grandparents' old farm house, directly across the driveway from her own home. The candle shop has been remodeled to accommodate its wide variety of guests, who come from all around! Grandma would be proud of the cozy, comfortable atmosphere! It's located just southeast of Weeping Water, Nebraska, a half-mile down a country road.
