Tomslitehouse Soy Candles, LLC
Tell us about your business.We're a mom and pop business, we hand pour all of our candles, in our kitchen! We make candles from soy wax and never add paraffin to our candles! The only thing we don't make are the jars, and most of our jars are made right here in the USA! We offer personalized wedding and shower favors and those are all made to order, as well. Our motto is Go Green ~ Try Soy, and we're proud of the fact that we offer a greener, cleaner alternative to paraffin candles! Eventually, this will be our business when I retire, and we'll be able to offer our candles at craft fairs and festivals along the east coast.
What makes your business stand out?We refill our larger candle jars, at a discount. Our customers can have their candle jars refilled three times, at a discounted price, in their choice of fragrance.
What's the best business advice you've received?When you love what you do, it's not a job.
