I started making candles a few years ago as a hobby. I enjoyed the process and they made great gifts. When I unexpectedly lost a 12 year career last summer I immediately began selling candles at the local farmers market. I figured it may help me through the hard times. To my surprise it did more than help. It carried me until I found a new job! Even though I'm employed again...I just can't quit Scandles! I sell here, several boutiques locally and continue to go to market every Saturday. I enjoy making candles and homes smell amazing! I've also come to love the craft way. Buying from "people" as opposed to big corps is so much more rewarding for both customer and crafter. Not to mention you usually end up with a much safer product.
