From Candle-Making Hobby to Business Adventure

From Candle-Making Hobby to Business Adventure

Embarking on the journey from a simple candle-making hobby to a flourishing small business has been nothing short of a magical adventure for Stories and Wicks. From humble beginnings, setting up a quaint table outside farmers' markets, to weaving enchantment into holiday events like Christmas Magic and Hangar Holiday, our story has been shaped by the lessons learned, failures overcome, and the unwavering determination to see this passion project through.

Contemplating participation in a grand festival in Dallas this summer is just the latest chapter in our unfolding narrative. The heart of our business lies not just in the creation of hand-poured candles using 100% soy wax and natural fragrances but in the art of storytelling. Every candle is a chapter, a unique tale crafted with care and intention.

As we reflect on this journey, I'm reminded of the tremendous support and encouragement that has fueled our growth. Our community, bound by the love for our candles and the stories they tell, has been an integral part of this adventure. The warmth and comfort our candles bring to homes are more than just fragrances—they are snippets of the stories we've shared.

Heading into 2024, the vision is clear—to take Stories and Wicks to the Bath and Body Works Candle Day level. Manifesting success isn't just about business; it's about amplifying the stories we tell through our candles. Each flicker of light represents the dreams, determination, and dedication that have gone into turning an idea into a reality.

In the tapestry of our story, setbacks have been woven alongside successes, creating a narrative that is uniquely ours. As we continue to navigate uncharted paths, I'm excited about the chapters yet to be written, the stories waiting to be shared, and the opportunity to inspire others through the magic of our candles.

Here's to 2024—a year of continued growth, new adventures, and the illumination of stories that resonate with the hearts of our customers.
