Candles By Lisa Tennessee

It was always a dream of mine to sell something I love to make, so it was either candles, or cooking. I chose candles so I wouldn't be tempted to eat everything I made. However, I wasn't planning on following that dream until my husband and I had 2 children and both were in school. A friend of mine, apparently, thought I should go ahead and start making them, before we had even our first baby. Before I could really think about making my dream a reality, she brought over a box of gel candle making supplies, with 10 pounds of gel in it! Then, my mom decided I needed to make my dream even bigger, and gave me a box of Pillar/Votive candle supplies, with a hobby sized pack of wax.
So, in the kitchen of our tiny 1 bedroom home near the Smoky Mountains in Tennessee, I started trying to take my own steps toward making my dream come true.
Since then, my husband has taken over my friend and my mom's roles in my dream, by encouraging me to continue creating candles, allowing my creative ideas to become tangible items.
My friend, mom and husband are the reasons I felt confident enough to make the candles I never dreamt I could. I'm not perfect at all types yet, but I am learning and becoming better at them. (And I never let an imperfect item be photographed, much less, given to my customers, unless it was an imperfection someone, for whatever reason, wanted to have.) And I pour all of my heart into making the best candles I can, which I hope everyone sees in each item they buy from me. Please feel free to ask me questions, voice your concerns, ask to make a custom candle, etc.

    In 1st grade, on a field trip, I made my first candle, a layered, carved candlestick, colored by melted crayons. I was so excited after it was done. That same excitement is still here. I hope my joy for the craft shows through in all of my candles.

a.) FedEx Ground, UPS Ground, and USPS Flat Rate/Flat Rate International are currently the only available shipping options for items sold on Etsy, insurance (if wanted) WILL BE PAID BY THE CUSTOMER. The reason is, I use packing bubbles, newspaper, and every other packaging procaution necessary to ensure your package and contents will arrive safely so if there is no insurance on the package, you will STILL recieve your order in the condition I sent it in. Certain packages, containing small candles or those with items placed on top (Embellishments), will be marked as fragile as well as being packaged with care.

b.) Method of shipment will be decided after cheapest method for your specific order has been determined. You will recieve a conversation here on Etsy after method has been determined, notifying you of which service was chosen as well as date of shipment and (if applicable) tracking number, to keep you informed of your order status as well as allowing you to track shipment(s) when option is available. I will NOT be responsible for delivery time after packages have been shipped. Average delivery time from the U.S. may be looked up online at each shipment/delivery method website. I (the seller) will decide which shipment method to use.

c.) If shipping is cheaper than the set shipping price, I will very happily refund as much of the unused SHIPPING cost as possible. This applies ONLY to SHIPPING cost, NOT to total cost, nor to item listing price. However, if order was large, complicated, or for any other reason that will be determined by ME, refund may not be possible, or may not be as large. I alone reserve the right to determine refund amount.

d.) If shipping costs more than the listed amount, it will be paid for by me, provided it does not exceed $7. Prices that exceed $7 over the listed shipping price will be paid for BY THE CUSTOMER. If customer does not pay this, please refer to "Payment Policy Term III".

e.) Custom orders will be shipped in the same manor of normal orders.
