I, Linda Knipe-Schlier, have been making candles for 23 years. The candles that we design are made in our factory to burn clean and fill your home with large amounts of fragrance. Our jars burn completely empty and are guaranteed for excellence in burning. I grew up at Pocono Candle and went on to Mountain Home Candle for 14 years until the fire. Now my husband and I own The Candle Shoppe of the Pocono's. Using innovative formulas for all of our candles, we grew to become nationally known as the premier candle company in the industry.

Since the opening of The Candle Shoppe of the Poconos in Swiftwater, PA, strange events seemed to be occurring that owners, Linda & Jim Schlier, and their employees could not explain. After researching the history of the property which seemed to be lingering in to current day happenings, Linda started to think that the Candle Shoppe may be holding the spirits of days gone by. Searching for verification, Linda got in touch with The Pennsylvania Paranormal Association
(THE PPA), a paranormal research group based out of the Scranton area. THE PPA conducts on-site investigations throughout PA to try and document activity that may be considered paranormal to determine if a haunting is present. The investigation conducted by THE PPA at the Candle Shoppe of the Poconos caught the attention of a NY based production company that was starting production of a new paranormal themed television show slated to air at the end of this year on Discovery's Animal Planet
. Based on certain criteria, such as the history of the location and results of the investigation, The Candle Shoppe of the Poconos was chosen to be one of the featured locations out of the ten episodes expeted for the premier season. THE PPA will also be featured in The Candle Shoppe episode, as well as two additional episodes filmed at other locations in Northeast PA. Although the show is expected to air this fall, additional information will be released as the premier date nears.
