Auntie's Candles

I am so proud of my mama! She's doing something she loves to do and with a little help from no other than muah... she may just be able to make some money doing it. I believe in her with every fiber of my being, even if she doesn't.

Mum has started up making candles again and she so so much enjoys it. And yall.. she's good at it too. Slammin really. She has all kinds of scents and sizes. And prices to beat Yankee candle. Some of her yummiest scents being... *Fresh Cotton, Lilac, Apples & Berries, Apple Jack & Peel, Pumpkin Souffle, Cranberry Apple Marmalade...* They smell simply delish! Has soy and regular paraffin wax as well.

I would love to help her actually make a profit doing this, so I am trying my best to spread the word. I figure this will help. I'm also bringing samples to give away at work tomorrow *hope boss lady doesn't mind* along with different jar sizes she'll make to show prices. We'll see how it goes from there.

I figure it's worth a shot. If noone likes them enough to buy, she'll still do them and force them on people for presents. If nothing else, she'll still have me sniping them off of her whenever I come over. She'll be happy making them and will always have me as a loyal customer :)
But really I hope they'll sell!

What do yall think? Are there already too many outlets out there for candles or do you think it's worth a shot? I will be posting pictures later (forgot my camera batteries at her house) and will be willing to send out samples. Let me know!

What a great job. If it is something she loves she should certainly go for it --- and you can never have too many candles!

definitely worth a shot. Everyone loves homemade versus mass commercial produced products. I think its a super idea and when you do something that you love, it totally shows in the results. so fun!

Tell her to go for it! It's rare that you find something that you LOVE doing that there is actually a demand for. I LOVE candles. I'm addicted, really. I have them all over my house. I think it's great that you are encouraging her and helping her along. I know she appreciates it! :)
