About Fresh Pastry Stand

Fresh Pastry Stand is a home textile and gift brand based in Gainesville, Florida, founded by Deva America in 2012. Within just 3 years, Fresh Pastry Stand has moved from the spare space above Deva’s Alachua carport to a large dedicated studio space in Gainesville. The line has expanded from the original vintage china pastry stands (hence the name) to an evolving line of natural candles, cotton tea towels and aprons.

We print all of our textiles with environmentally friendly inks that we’ve tested for durability and softness. In 2014, Deva traveled to India to personally select the tea towel stock for Fresh Pastry Stand, sampling dozens of cottons until she decided upon the soft and thick tea towel fabric that her customers love.

We only use USA-grown soy in our eco-soy candles and are proud to say that the wax is certified kosher, GMO and pesticide free. It also contains no paraffins and is completely biodegradable. Our scented candles are fragranced with the finest quality essential and fragrance oils and are always phthalate-free. A Fresh Pastry Stand FRESHWAX candle is a complete sensual experience.soothing to the eyes, fragranced to delight, not overpower. And the sound of the subtle crackle of the wood wick is absolutely charming.

All of our products are packaged with the environment in mind, reflecting the Fresh Pastry Stand commitment to a responsibly produced product line. Recyclable materials are used whenever possible. Each item is thoroughly inspected before shipping, ensuring a high rating of customer satisfaction.

Frequently asked questions
I really like your PYREX-themed tea towels and collect XXX pattern. Can you make me a tea towel in that design?

Because I screen print the towels, as opposed to digital print, no, I cannot make you one custom design tea towel. It requires time (which is money!) to make a design, burn a screen, set up printing and pull the print--which requires a few test prints that end up in the seconds pile.

If you wanted 30, than yes, it can be done and you will receive a bulk shipping discount. However, this will be offset by art charges and set-up fees.

I'm getting married! Can you print XXX design as napkins?

Congratulations! Sounds like a project we would be happy to work on. For cost effectiveness and our own personal happiness, our printing minimum is 100 pieces. Please allow 3 months from the finalization of the order for completion. Also, I am happy to talk with you about customization options.

Do you offer a discount if I purchase a lot of tea

Thank you for your tea towel love! Our tea towels are fairly priced to keep our business going and our customers happy. If you would like 3 of the same tea towel, there is a drop down menu option which provides a discounted price to customers. Each tea towel is packaged individually so you can gift them without any sacrifice to their packaged cuteness! If you would like 3 different tea towels, you will have to purchase them separately. It may seem unreasonable on the customer's end, but on our end, we need to set up our work flow to facilitate ease and productivity. An itemized sales receipt works best for us.

This is a gift. Can you include a note for the recipient?

Yes! There is an "add on gift wrap" item in our shop that can be purchased and a handwritten note is included with this service. Otherwise, just put a note on your order at checkout and that will appear on the gift receipt. Example: "To Aunt Susie With Love Your Favorite Niece Fabiana"

This is a gift. Can you leave off the pricing from the receipt?

All orders ship with a "gift receipt." No pricing is visible.

Can I get a discount if I order a lot of candles?

Maybe! "A lot" is a vague term. Our FRESHWAX candle line is so well priced already (just compare to other natural candles of similar size) that we cannot offer any discounts on orders below $100.

I like a KO-MALA design but need specific colors. Yes?

Sure. Just message me and we can work out the details.
