Ever since I can remember, I’ve wanted to learn how to blow glass. I have always thought the little glass miniatures found in gift shops were so fascinating.

I love working with such an amazing group of people and watching the company grow. As the second employee after Brittany's brother, Ed, it has truly been a unique experience to see growth and changes first hand.

What have you learned from working at Antique Candle Co.™?
I have learned that there is a lot more that goes into a small business than one would think. There are many different aspects that are involved in operating a small handmade business. Also, I’ve learned the interworking’s of operating a business blog. This appeals to me professionally since I’m learning the aspects that are important in a blog.
What is your favorite fragrance at Antique Candle Co.™?
My forever favorite is Cashmere (a discontinued fragrance).
My new favorite, though, has got to be either Country Pear by Cotton Stem or Fall Harvest!
