Candles make great gifts for anyone, including yourself! But from my experience, they make a great gift for the mother-in-law type of person in your life...and here's why. One day early on in my relationship with my boyfriend, he came to the shop so that he (more like, I) could pick out a gift for his mother for her birthday. After looking around the store and taking everything in for a while (I'm sure customers can understand this) I decided on a candle in my favorite scent and a bar of soap. Lucky for him, she loved "his gift" and she told her son, "It was the perfect gift, all women my age want is soap and candles." I know this statement can't speak for all women but I do know from other sources that as you get older, the amount of "stuff" you can accumulate year after year can start to build up and become clutter. A candle, therefore, is the perfect gift because it is thoughtful, everyone likes them and once they burn up they can be recycled. So, that said I put together a list of pictures and information about the candles we carry from our 3 different candle vendors. Enjoy!
We welcome candle artist #3 to Birdfolk Collective: Brooklyn Candle Studio. Welcome, we're happy to have your candles!!
Brooklyn Candle Studio
Candles from Brooklyn Candle Studio smell so good that the first day we had them in stock I immediately grabbed one for my friend's housewarming gift. The various fragrances we carry can be purchased in travel tin size or larger glass candles.
Cedar wood Vanilla. Fern and Moss. Green Tea and Lemongrass. Japanese Citrus. Lavender. Montana Forest. Rose Botanica. Sandalwood. Spruce and Sweet Fig.
Let's Put A Bird On It
If you've been to the store twice (we have a lot of stuff) then you've probably noticed our candles from Let's Put A Bird On It. The most notable aspect of these candles is probably the small, gold painted animal ontop of the jar, like the velociraptor, stegosaurus, dog, cat, alligator, pig, horse, you name the animal, it is a candle topper! Another fun fact: the jar can be recycled into a plethora of things, best among them is a Q-tip holder. Right now the scents that we carry include: Vanilla Oak, Moonshine, Lemon Verbana, Pumpkin, Apricot and Fig, and Misty Mountain.
Candles are made with:
- 100% natural apricot wax, blended with coconut and soy
- Woodwick - it crackles when the candle burns :)
The Bee's Nectar
Lastly, we carry candles made by a local Vermont artist, The Bee's Nectar. We carry these candles in 3 different scents: Lemon Verbana, Blue Spruce and Citrus Citronella. They come in a cute tin and therefore make a great travel candle.
Come to Birdfolk to check out these awesome candles and give one as a gift! Thanks for reading:)
