Our Story

OUR NAME
Kittredge Candles is named for the Captain Kittredge house, overlooking Harpswell Sound on Orrs Island, Maine. It is also named for a wonderful orange kitty named Kittredge.

OUR HISTORY
My passion for candles began in the early 1970's, when I made novelty candles on a hot plate in my basement and sold them to my classmates. I revived that passion in 2009 when I pulled out my old molds and got a burning desire (no pun intended!) to make candles again. I hadn't planned to turn it back into a business; I simply wanted to sell a few candles to give me a reason to make more. Then it took on a life of its own and before I knew it I was making soaps, lotions, perfumes and lip balms as well! My wonderful husband, Paul, jumped in to help with packing and shipping, which allows me to focus solely on the fun part - making things.

I still use many of my 1970s molds for my novelty candles - many of which you won't find anywhere else. We donate all the money from the sale of our cat candles and soaps to our local cat shelter to help the homeless kitties. I spend WAY too much money on fragrance research and on using only premium fragrance oils in hopes of providing the most amazing fragrances. The one thing I'm proud to say is that I make every effort to be sure my fragrances are true to their name. When you order a candle in Hot Cocoa or Coppertone or Lilac or any of our 180+ fragrances, I want it to smell EXACTLY like you would expect. The main reason I do this is because I just love making exceptional candles that make people say "wow"!

I love doing custom orders and can make all of our items with custom labels for special events. Paul and I do craft shows and farmers markets all around New England (mostly in Massachusetts) and we are always happy to bring along any candles in fragrances you wish to smell - just email us at kittredgecandles [!at] comcast.net and let us know what you would like us to bring along!

Welcome to Kittredge Candles. With over 30 years of candle making experience, we strive to produce the most richly scented, clean burning candles you could find anywhere. The main reason we sell candles is so we can make more candles! Our business is much more about the love of making candles than it is making money. We would like nothing more than to create a perfect candle with a wonderful fragrance that leaves people wanting more.

Payment

We accept payment through Etsy's secure site, which allows you to use any major credit card. We will never receive your credit card number - only your payment. In all cases, payment must be made before an item is shipped.

Shipping

The two most frustrating things about shopping on line are shipping costs and waiting for items to arrive. We have made every effort to reduce both. Candles are heavy so they cost a lot to ship. The further they are going (in the US) the more they cost. Our shipping prices are set up with coast to coast shipping rates. Since there is no easy way on Etsy to adjust the shipping rate for shorter distances or for multiple items, we will refund you after your order is placed, if you are charged excess shipping. Most items are sent via USPS, either by Priority Mail or by First Class depending on the weight.

International shipping is available on all our candles. Just contact us if the item is not yet set up with the international rates and we will be happy to get that set up for you.

We always make up our candles fresh when ordered rather than keeping a large inventory on hand. During the months of October through December our shipping time may lengthen greatly due to the volume of orders and because of our very busy craft show scheduled during those months.

Additional policies and FAQs

We are happy to do custom orders. We do candles as party favors, wedding gifts, centerpieces, and for a variety of events. We do wholesale some of our candles. Contact us if you are interested in wholesale pricing. We do not send candles for free to those who want to write about them in their blogs, or do product giveaways. We get a lot of requests for charitable contributions so in fairness to all, we do not donate items or gift certificates to worthy causes. We do contribute a substantial sum of our profits to charitable organizations of our choice - which are all related to animal welfare.
