Getting to know a Flicker Box Approved Vendor: 4th Street Candle Co.


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 that order ;)
