  • Hi

    Hi a newbie here, and thought it was time to introduce myself, as I have already been asking loads of questions and everyone has been so friendly and helpful so thank you to those peeps already

    I am currently doing all I can to assist my hubby in fulfilling his dream by working for himself, after many years of working in shipping he has had enough, and dreams of being able to craft and he has chosen to work with candles, mainly beeswax which he loves.

    I am already lucky enough to be self employed as I am a Canine Beautician [otherwise known as a dog groomer and I am also a professional dog walker and have been now for 4 years.

    We have already done a couple of farmers markets just before xmas and the candles were recieved well and we was very happy with the response. Now we are experimenting still with moulds, floating candles and containers. For the main part of the business we are concentrating on the beeswax, but for fairs etc he is also providing hand decorated candles and also recycled container scented wax.

    We have booked for a couple of large shows but have no other idea where to who to try so I guess like everyone else it will be through trial and error.

    I havent seen many other candles really around and wonder why

    Anyway thank you for such a warm welcome already and all the advice & help given so far
