Shop Name: 4th Street Candle Co.
Located in: Monroe, Michigan
Where are you located? I live with my family of six, dog and two cats in Monroe, Michigan. I have a daughter and three sons. My kids range in age from 22 to 3. I homeschool my teen son. Our house is very busy.
What inspired you to become a candle artist? I have always loved candles. I worked with another "wax company" and didn't like having to meet a quota. I decided to learn how to create my own candles.
What item in your shop are you most proud of? I love my 8 oz masons. Long burning enough to enjoy, but not so big that you have to commit to a certain scent for a long time. I particularly like my hang tags. I used to make my own hang tags and decided last year that it was a job I needed to "contract out". My hang tags are now created by the talented Cohen from the Etsy shop Pacokeco. She took my original design and tweaked it a bit. She hand cuts each of my tags. I think that makes my candles extra special :) All my candles are dye free. I wanted a candle that could go with any decor. I had a few people that I knew that had commented that they hated to find a candle in an awesome scent and they didn't like the color.
My favorite scents in my line are Gingerbread Cookie, Spiced Cranberry and Southern Apple Pie....in that order ;)
