I bought this item for my a gift for my daughter and her first Holy Communion this May. Love this vintage Trinity statue and I hope my daughter will love it as much as me. Super fast shipping with some thoughtful gifts in my package! Thank you!

A Small Business Has More Room To Grow

We started THE OWL, BOOK & CANDLE as a way to prepare ourselves and set the foundation for a huge lifestyle change. We moved from New Jersey to Virginia (USA) and needed a way of earning some income as we settle.

Eddie is employed full time right now as an auto mechanic, and we are working diligently into putting things in place and create the pathway to our future lifestyle, which will include farming, ecommerce, writing, and much more. THE OWL BOOK & CANDLE is about sharing with you our passion for unique vintage items, handcrafted items, and Art.

I am an author/freelance writer, although I have a background in sales/Real Estate/social work/diamontology, and have worn many other hats during my lifetime. I find that all these experiences have taught me something, which I can apply to this business.

Our goal is to keep growing THE OWL, BOOK & CANDLE and evolve with it. We care for the environment, respect our planet, and want the OBC to reflect that. We are honored to create something with love for someone, and in that way we are intertwined, as part of this wonderful universe. Our handmade items are crafted by us; Eddie works with wood, and I work with different materials. We work on pieces by ourselves, or may colaborate on one piece together. Each piece is signed, and crafted with love.

To follow our journey, you can visit my blog INKSPEARE, which you can find on the related links section.

Welcome to our shop and thank you for stopping by. We hope that you find a whimsical treasure to take home. We take pride in our handcrafted items, which are made with loving care by using recycled materials and repurposing them, as well as new materials. In this way, we give things a second life and help our planet. Some handcrafted items are OOAK and therefore special, since it is the only one made. We may also bring you some vintage treasures and antiques from time to time.

Items are described accurately (to the best of human ability) and pictures are provided. Please take into consideration that some antique and vintage items have been around for a while, and sometimes, may have normal wear, some discoloration, dings, slight cracks, and/or chips. We do our best to describe as accurately as possible and/or provide pictures of flaws or unique features. Please, read all detail before you buy. Please, ask questions; we will be happy to answer them. Questions are encouraged. We always include a little surprise for you with your order - our way of saying Thank You.
