An Interview with Serendipity Candles, bringing glamour and ethical products together in harmony...

Good Morning lovely makers, creators and all round lovely people, todays post is a little different. Today I thought I would share a recent interview that I had the privilege of being involved in with the founder and creator of the Handmade Boutique.  As many of you know I have been asked to join this talented chorus of designs and so asked the founder to tell us her story and this is how it goes.

So firstly can I ask who you are and where you are?

A: My name is Tracie and my business is Serendipity Candles, I am also the founder of Handmade Boutique which was initially set up as a 14 week Pop-Up Shop last September in The Mailbox, Birmingham, housing 17 Midlands based Designer makers. It was such a success that we are now opening again as a permanent Boutique in July at The Great Western Arcade, Birmingham.

What is that you specifically do and when did you start?

A: I started making Soya Candles in Vintage crockery last year just for myself as I love fragranced candles burning at home. A few of my friends asked me to make some for them and so I looked into doing a Handmade Event to see how they sold to the general public. I had such a great response with my first event that it encouraged me to carry on making and developing the range to create the business that I have now.

What would you say is uniquely different about what you do?

A: Serendipity Candles combine elegant vintage styling with beautifully scented soya wax candles to create that perfect gift for someone special or to add a touch of luxury to your home. I source the finest vintage china and glassware around to perfectly complement the long-lasting, lovingly produced candles.

Can you us more about the candles themselves?

A: Serendipity Candles are created from 100% natural soya wax which allows the scents of the natural fragrance oils to fill your home with a beautiful, pure aroma, all our Candles are hand poured. When the candle is finished, you’ll have the stunning container to use for many years to come.

I have worked hard to develop my brand over the last 12 months and now have 17 stockists nationwide which is very exciting. I look forward to sharing with you new developments and opportunities as they come along. I will also be sharing with you the products that will be featured in Handmade Boutique.
