About JDandKateIndustries

Sales 11,710
On Etsy since 2015

Hi.

As you might have guessed, our names are J.D. and Kate. We are married (to each other) and live in St. Louis, Missouri, where we moved to pursue the American dream of finding excitement, adventure and opportunity in the untamed west, like Daniel Boone, or Alfred Packer.

When I first had the idea for a Vladimir Putin-scented candle, I knew it was such a SOLID GOLD idea that I had to start making it myself, before someone else did. So we taught ourselves to make candles, and we built a candle workshop in our basement by clearing out J.D.’s earnestly bought but long-idle exercise equipment. These days, J.D. pours the candles, I package and ship them, and we both design the labels.

When we’re not making candles, we're humor writers. You can subject yourself to our work by buying our book, Hottest Heads of State, which was published by Henry Holt & Co in 2018.
