It’s a pleasure to share about Candle Confectionary in this week’s giveaway. Michelle, its owner, has been a long time member of the Prim Mart community and her expertise in candle making is phenomenal!
The Talented Maker Behind Candle Confectionary
Be it a candle you burn, use are decoration or meltable tarts, Michelle is your go-to candle making expert. She was sweet enough to take time out of her schedule to spend some time sharing with us about her career as a candle maker.
How did you get started?
Michelle is proclaimed primitive country fanatic. She managed to turn that passion into a couple websites about 14 years ago. And, started her online career first with her candle company called Ugly Duckling Designs.
“I had been doing craft shows for a couple years and wanted to have an online presence during the off season, that people could come and purchase from. The website took off, and I added a wholesale division to cater to other stores that wanted to carry our products.”
“Between the two divisions, I was too busy to continue craft shows. A few years later, I expanded with another company called Candle Confectionery in 2010. I actually started Candle Confectionery as an experiment on Etsy and it took off so quickly, that I decided to keep it, and it’s been 7 years, and is now my main selling site.
Candle Confectionery is a unique candle business that offers bakery scented goodies for your home. We’re unique because everything we make, looks like food. We’ve actually have several customers husbands, try to eat our tarts and cookies.
You’ll find Bakery Jars, tart melts, cookie melts, cinnamon buns and so much more, at Candle Confectionery!”
What inspires you?
“I love to be creative with wax. I try to make items you won’t find anywhere else. I’ve just started to dabble in house blend scents, that I mix myself. You’ll find those creations with our New Twisted Scents, Harvest Moon, and Winter Whimsy Collections on Etsy.
When I’m not creating in wax, I love to sew, paint and do woodworking. My primitive/country side comes out more in those areas of crafting. Anything I can stain or throw cinnamon on, is a plus in my book.
I am stretched in many different directions when selling. I have two retail websites, one wholesale website, I do the occasional craft show or two, and I supply about 50 other retail stores with my products as well.”
