Shown are but a few of the 850 Christmas candles owned by Marshalltown’s Kathy Anzis on display at 123 E. Main St. Included are Christmas bears, a large nativity scene, characters from the “Nutcracker Suite” Santas and snowmen. Anzis said she started collecting the candles as a recreational hobby 20 years ago. Since then, she and husband Hank Anzis have purchased candles at thrift stores and traditional retail businesses.
“We were pleased to offer use of the space to Kathy so that others may enjoy the collection as much as we have,” said Julie Hinson, administrative assistant with the Marshall County Historical Society, which uses the property. The display will be lit during the Nov. 17th Holiday Stroll and available for viewing through the Christmas season.
