Now that we are heading into fall with the long nights, cozy blankets, and lovely smelling candles, I thought it would be nice to share some Pretty Vintage Candles.
The beautiful thing about these candles is that not only do you purchase the candle, but when the candle is long gone, you have a gorgeous glass container.
Since the pandemic hit in March, I’m shopping exclusively online. And as a result, I find wonderful boutiques that I normally would overlook. Not only do they have unique handmade products, but these shops are run by businesswomen pursuing their lifelong dreams. So every purchase is supporting a small businesswoman.
Today’s feature is RetroWix. I love that these candles combine vintage glassware and lovely scented soy wax. I’m so thrilled to share this company with you. The owner is Vickie, and she is from Raliegh, North Carolina. Her shop has been on Etsy since 2015. Here are a few of her own words about her business.
I am the owner and creator of RetroWix™ which is a small independent online vintage candle shop. It originated from my road trips with my husband across the country— collecting carefully picked vintage glassware and housewares for our home for over 25 years. I absolutely love candles so combining vintage glassware with soy candles was a natural progression and breathed new life and purpose into each nostalgic piece.
I proudly curate vintage & vintage-inspired, quality candles—hand poured in Holly Springs, NC! It is done in small batches in my studio with hand-poured 100% natural soy wax. Along with repurposing glassware, thrifted items, and new pieces that you will love to reuse, our product reduces negative impact on the environment.
