our story

hey there, friend!

We are SO excited you are here. We can’t wait to share our story with you. Spoiler alert: our story involves humble beginnings, grit and determination, and faith.

how it started...

Shortly after graduating college, Brittany found herself stuck in a demanding job that left little time for the things that matter most in life. After making the bold decision to leave her job, she turned to candle making as a creative outlet. Brittany started experimenting with fragrances in her own kitchen and spent every day making candles until she had perfected the recipe and was convinced she made the best smelling candles ever!

After gifting her candles to friends and family (including antique coffee tin candles!), Brittany knew she had something special. She sat down at her dining room table and began to dream about what the future could look like. In 2014, Brittany took a leap of faith and started Antique Candle Co.® with just an idea, business plan, and $200 worth of candle-makin' supplies. 

how it's going...

What started as a family business (Brittany’s husband, younger brother, and sweet little pug) quickly grew into a fun-loving candle crew of 50. Eight years later, Antique Candle Co.® is still sharing vintage-inspired, artisan soy candles with friends, while being a light in the local community and holding true to the same values as always

The Lord has done immeasurably more than what Brittany’s original business plan could have ever imagined. Just like candles brought comfort when Brittany needed it most, we hope and pray our candles (and this candle community!) can also spark joy for you.

All 50 personalities come together to create the best work environment! But for real…it takes some pretty cool people to make all the yummy smelling candles.
