Springing into something new

I have always had a love for candles. Who doesn’t?

And I have, for some time now, wanted to offer them in my Etsy store. I had hopes last year when I began to work with a candle maker and sell in her shop in Smithville that I could finally expand to carry them. But as things sometimes do it didn’t work out.

But, now…. Now, I have taken a workshop and researched and read and watched and learned all I can to begin this venture on my own. I’m giddy with excitement as the first few I’ve done came out flawlessly. Friends and family bought up nearly all I had in my first round.

( I have, of course, made dozens of candles in mason jars as well)

50 pounds of soy wax at my doorstep (I do believe the UPS guy fully dislikes me now),

along with the 8oz tins, and cotton wicks I’ve choose to use (shipping with these seems like the best 1st step).

I hope to reach and begin to work with brides and create these as favors for their weddings, bridesmaids for showers, and so to be mommies baby showers. I have packages outlined on my Facebook page already as I have had several messages about candles as favors and will be getting samples and package prices listed on Etsy asap. These are truly the perfect thing every bit of it is customizable from the color and scent to label and saying on it. Such a fun process to work with someone and create something that is just them.

The possibility is endless with these and I just love the work, birthdays, and anniversaries, teacher gifts, and Mother days, house warming, or just a quik lil thank you to that someone who is always there for you candles are always a perfect choice.

But even if you just want a great candle for your home or need a great gift at a great price, we can create a label just for you and any scent (just about) you can think of we can do as well as color.

Oh where to being, where to begin!?

First, I must say I am beyond blessed to have some the stuff I make available for sale in this shop. And to work with someone so talented and creative. To draw strength, and ideas from her and her shop it is truly a gift.

This is an amazing shop, with a homey feel and warmth unlike so many other candle shops.

From an antique fridge in the corner serving as a stunning display to the beautiful one of a kind hand crafted lights hanging above, I swear you wont know where to look first. I personally always go right for smelling the candles.

This shop will stay with you, in your senses and in your heart.

The Candlewyck Cottage.

Well of course there’s candles! But this shop and its owner are so much more.
