We are based in beautiful Burley-in-Wharfedale in the heart of Yorkshire and never imagined in 2020 we would be selling candles and gift packs across the country and getting our story in the local papers. It’s funny how things turn out! (Picture from Ilkley Gazette & Wharfedale Observer Article published 2020)
We were also featured in the Telegraph & Argus as 'Trader of the Week' in August 2022.
As a Cottage Industry, we want to support and celebrate our local community and source the best quality local materials wherever possible. We endeavour to use natural products, which are healthy for the environment as well as the consumer, vegan and cruelty free.
Not only do we trade from our home, but we have a stall on York Shambles Market on Saturday and Sundays, and also on the first Sunday of every month we have a stall on The Grove in Ilkley at the Real Food Market. We thoroughly enjoy these times as it is a way of meeting people from all over the country and to share our products and ideas too.
We hope you enjoy our candles as much as we enjoy making them. Keep an eye out for our new products and ranges for 2023.
