Since reopening our bookish candle shop in September we have lots to share!
Illumicrate: Saints & Scars Grishaverse Box Volume 2
We’re delighted to have one of our candles included in Illumicrate’s Grishverse box. We worked closely with Illumicrate to create an exclusive layered candle for this. The box contains a special edition of King of Scars, plus 10 officially licensed Grishaverse items. The full contents of the box stay secret for now, but it will ship shortly after the release date of the book on 29 January. We can’t wait!
Punnydukes: A Bizarre Bazaar of Magic and Mayhem
A new Harry Potter-inspired shop recently opened in Matlock, Derbyshire. Punnydukes is owned by illustrator Katie Abey and stocks products by small businesses. We attended the open night and the shop is amazing – like being in Diagon Alley.
We loved seeing our candles on the shelves in such a magical place, including a Punnydukes candle exclusive to the store.
The Hollies Farm Shop: Lower Stretton Barn
The Hollies Farm Shop in Cheshire now stock our candles too. It’s amazing to see them on the shelves there. We’re also going to be featured in their February newsletter with some of our Valentine’s-related candles – Love Potion and Love Letters.
Expanding: Bookmarks, Candle Boxes and Tins
We’ve sold jar candles since we opened early 2017. This year we’ve decided to try a few new things and see how they go. We just added our first range of bookmarks to the Etsy page. There are 6 designs and they match 6 of our jar candles. We’re also just about to release our first candle box for pre-order. The theme is Divination and it will contain 5 4oz tin candles exclusive to the box, an exclusive Flickerink bookmark, and bookish goodies from 3 other suppliers to make it extra magical! Our next step is to introduce tin candles to the shop.
