The Candle Shop is run by the candle-maker. He is located south of the bank in Catherby in the market square. He stands in front of the vegetable stall and his candles can be seen on display east of where he stands. Players who need a black candle for the Merlin's Crystal quest can get one by trading a bucket of wax to this shop, after which they can be bought from the shop for coins, like normal candles.
Notably, if the player right-clicks the standard white candle in the shop interface, one of the purchase options has been replaced. What should read "Buy 5 Candle" instead reads "Buy 4 Candle". Should this option be selected, the player will receive a fork handle instead. The fork handle is not tradeable, and no coins are deducted from the player for the transaction. However, the amount of candles in stock will be reduced by four.
