How did it all begin?
I have been creating soy candles for family and friends for years and decided to one day create a small business from my passion and love of it all. My aim is to have my own retail shop and sell local handmade products. All my candles are white and come in 4 ranges. (Classic, Deluxe, Novelty & Soy CANdles). We aim for elegance and sophistication!
What do you like most about being a stallholder?
I love the atmosphere, the smiles from every customer who has a sniff of my candles and the wonder in children’s eyes when they smell a Unicorns Fart candle and “believe” I have an actual real unicorn!.
What do you like least about being a stallholder?
Pack up, set up, rainy and hot days!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
In my own shop creating more and more beautiful things!
Any funny stories to share about your time as a stallholder?
I once had a child scream so much because she absolutely loved my Unicorn Fart candle, she was so excited and the wonder in her eyes and the smile on my face was an amazing moment to see. She pleaded and begged her parents to buy her one!!
What one piece of advice would you give to a new stallholder?
Always buy a flatbed trolley/foldable sack truck for transportation of your stock from the car to your spot. Always smile!!!!!!!!
