Becky's Profile

About

Good Neighbors Candle Co. began in the Spring of 2005 with neighbors Becky and Beverly learning and working together. Becky was the financial "expert", Beverly loved to make candles. Together we drove Beverly's husband absolutely bonkers with all of the fun containers, scents and the accessories that go with candle making.

Those were the days when we, through much research, trial and error, learned so much about soy and gel candle making. We learned together about which wicks worked with which fragrance oils and which containers.

In those days very few people were familiar with the eco-friendly soy wax. They were interested but uninformed. So we shared wherever we went about the delightfully long and clean burn that soy offers. We recycled containers and offered the service of filling other's containers. Over the next two years…

Over the next two years Good Neighbors Candle Co. became known in our local community. We were blessed to have repeat customers and a growing market.

In 2007, Beverly and Clyde moved into a retirement community. She retired from the candlemaking business and is keeping quite busy in her new home.

I, Becky, am now the sole owner of Good Neighbors Candle Co. I will forever be thankful for the opportunity to continue this homebased business. At the moment I hand pour each and every candle in my kitchen....although we are in the process of making a candle making space in another space in our home. That will be awesome. As much as I love the convenience of working in my kitchen it will be amazing to have that space back for things such as cooking dinner. The quantity of candle orders has risen to make this a necessity. No complaints here.

On a personal note, I am a wife and mom. We home educated our three children. They have all graduated and are now out in the working world. Time really does fly. My husband Warren is now the one who I drive bonkers with all of my candle stuff and chatter. He's going to be so happy to see my shop set up in our middle son's former room.

I hope that you will feel very comfortable contacting me with any questions you may have. I love working with you to make a candle that is exactly what you are looking for.

Whether you want a candle for your home or are looking for a wholesale rate for your business or organization I would be thrilled to speak with you. I would love the opportunity to earn your business!

Thanks, so much, for stopping by.
