Happy Camper Candles are handcrafted in New York. We blend wax from American grown soybeans with fine fragrances infused with essential oils.

Hi! My name is Tara McGonigal Coppola, owner of Happy Camper Candle. I was born in Rockaway Beach, NY and raised on Long Island with my three sisters by our surfing, firefighting father and entrepreneurial, creative mother. Happy Camper Candle was born from a love for all things handmade, an appreciation for unique goods crafted in small batches with intention. Each candle scent is the byproduct of countless hours of dreaming and making, the end result not only a candle but a story. Candles bring light and warmth into a space and connect the maker to the user. I live for connection and my candles have been a way for me to connect to people near and far. As the chief candle-maker, I pour my good intentions and happy vibes into the candles along with the carefully selected fragrance oils. I am committed to the “shop local” and “shop small” movements which is why I partner with other independently owned small businesses and online handmade platforms like Etsy. It is my wish that the peace, love, gratitude and sense of wonder I feel surround you when you burn my candles. Here on Etsy and in each of the shops that carry my candles, I am surrounded by highly talented artisans who create beautiful things, including candles. I believe there is room enough in our world for everyone to live a life where dreaming, creativity, purpose and hard work come together to elevate us all. When the tide comes in, we rise together.
Peace and Love.
