A Passion For Tradition and Nostalgia Coupled With a Desire to Introduce Vintage Glassware Into the Modern Home

I am the owner and creator of RetroWix™ which is a small independent online vintage candle shop. It originated from my road trips with my husband across the country— collecting carefully picked vintage glassware and housewares for our home for over 25 years. I absolutely love candles so combining vintage glassware with soy candles was a natural progression and breathed new life and purpose into each nostalgic piece.

I proudly curate vintage & vintage-inspired, quality candles—hand poured in Holly Springs, NC! It is done in small batches in my studio with hand-poured 100% natural soy wax. Along with repurposing glassware, thrifted items, and new pieces that you will love to reuse, our product reduces negative impact on the environment.

Every RetroWix™ candle is made with wax from natural, domestically grown soy beans and a hand-picked blend of non-toxic fine fragrance oils + essential oils. A natural cotton wick or wood wick completes the candle for a clean, long-lasting, and even burn.

Thank you for making the conscious decision to support a small business and lessen the environmental impact by choosing to shop vintage and handmade.

Thanks for shopping.

Frequently asked questions
What is the Proper Way to Burn RetroWix Candle?

Begin by trimming your wick to 1/4" before lighting. Trim your wick each time you light the candle, removing any "bloom" from the previous burn. When you are finished, let the candle completely cool before relighting. Always trim the wick before relighting to help cut down smoking and large flame which will help protect the glass. A wick trimmer is worth the small investment. (If you don't have a wick trimmer, use a fingernail clipper to remove the top of the burned portion of the wick prior to relighting). Do not allow wick trimmings to accumulate in the melted wax pool. Very Important...Do not burn your candle lower than ½” from the bottom of the container to prevent glass breakage.

What are the Candle Safety Precautions?

~Candles are for adult use only.
~To prevent fire, keep any burning candle within sight.
~Keep out of reach of children and pets.
~Never burn a candle near anything that can catch fire. Burn only on a stable and heat resistant surface.
~Do not burn on a heat-absorbing surface such as glass or marble.
~Keep out of drafts, and keep wick trimmed, or candle will smoke.
~If flame becomes too large, extinguish candle and trim wick.
~Do not touch, move or trim candle while hot or wax is liquid. ~Discontinue use when wax is ½” from bottom.
~If burned further than ½” from bottom, glass containers may break.

Care instructions

Soy wax washes off RetroWix containers with good ole soap and warm water. Remove excess wax carefully. It will break apart easily. Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use. Once you have removed the wax, you can wash container with warm water and soap. If the wick is still adhered, use hot tap water to help loosen the glue that is adhered to the bottom of wick. Carefully remove using an non-sharp object to gently lift the metal bottom of the wick. Repeat if necessary. Please make sure you are careful not to get soy wax in your plumbing. It will still harden and can cause problems.
