Your favorite candle studio is growing! From new friends joining our team, to moving our operation to a whole different location, a few things have changed since our last Studio Update. We are so thankful to all of you who have followed the Antique Candle Works journey (now, Antique Candle Co.!) and to those who are just joining in, so I think another update is in order!
A New Home
Last fall, we realized that Antique Candle Works had outgrown the small storefront space we were in. So we packed everything up and moved to a much larger warehouse across town!
We are now in a brand new building with a separate office space, a loft for storage, and so much room to make even more candles!
When the last update was published, we had just added Macey to the candle crew, making it three of us in the studio (plus Ed during the summer and holidays!). Not long afterward, we welcomed Carol and Sarah to the team! Once we moved locations, Kelsey, Julie, Emily, and Tori fit right in at Antique Candle Works, along with Mark during the summer months! We will also be welcoming Hannah here very soon!
Staying with the times…
You may have noticed a few changes around the website since the beginning of the year. Now if you are clicking on from Instagram, you’ll be greeted with a welcome page with click links to all your favorite pages! We also revamped the home page and navigation tools to give you a better experience!
With features such as a new ‘Reviews’ page, and plenty of behind the scenes fun to explore Inside the Studio, the Heart of the Business, and the Missionaries We Support. Plus our email friends will enjoy a few cool new features as well!
We can’t get enough of them in the studio! We’ve also added them to our new line of candle sample packs! However, we are always looking for yummy scents to add to our collection. Stay tuned here in the next month or two for some exciting candle news! (Hint: Who doesn’t love the fall?)
The Unboxing Experience
If you’ve ordered your favorite candles recently, you may have noticed the packaging is a little different than it was last year, and so much cuter! With adorable candle boxes, fun inserts, and hand stamped packages, you will always know when your happy mail has hand poured goodness inside (stay tuned for a blog all about it!).
Fun in the Studio
A few months ago, the candle crew had the pleasure of meeting so many of you, our friends, face to face for the first ever Open Studio Event! The candle studio is usually closed and used just for production and shipping, but for one day only, we welcomed everyone in to smell all their favorite scents, see some behind the scenes candle making, and enjoy some yummy snacks and good company!
The Open Studio was a hit, and I’m excited to let you blog readers be the first to know that we have officially picked our dates for the next events! Mark your calendars for September 29th and November 10th for the fall and holiday themed open candle studio events! Can’t wait to see you there!
Blue Skies Ahead…
With so many changes in not so long a time, we can’t wait to see what else is in store for Antique Candle Works. We might welcome new members to the candle crew family, add a few more fragrances, or maybe something even bigger. No matter what, we can’t thank you enough for following along in our business journey. We wouldn’t be here without you!
Don't forget that Fresh Cut Herbs is July's Scent of the Month and is 10% for a couple more weeks! Also, there are still a few vintage candles left from the last Antique Candle Restock! Go grab them before they're gone!
Have a beautiful day, friends!
