We last updated in January with news of our collaboration with Illumicrate and the good news that our candles were being stocked in the Hollies Farmshop and the magical Punnydukes! You can read that post here. Since then we have released a candle box, added bookmarks and candle tins to the shop, and collaborated with Illumicrate and Book Box Club on two awesome subscription boxes…
Illumicrate: Your Majesty April 2019
We were thrilled to work with Illumicrate again and have this exclusive Crown of Power candle included in April’s royal box. It smells of sun-ripe raspberry with a sprinkle of our favourite white iridescent glitter.
Book Box Club: Seize the Crown May 2019
This was our first time working with Book Box Club and it was a great experience. We created this Anastasia-inspired Lost Princess candle for their Seize the Crown box in May. The candle paired with the book Romanov and was scented like sweet orange and dusted with gold glitter.
Part of our idea to expand was to introduce a range of double-sided bookmarks. Our first set included 6 bookmarks, we then made an bookmark for our Divination box which we later released, and have just added four more. The designs include the four houses and most match a candle in the same design, others feature quotes. We’re really happy with how these turned out and with the feedback we’ve got since their release!
In January we released a mystery candle box with a Divination theme. The box included 5 tin candles and a bookmark by us. We also included a print by Victoria Barron, a Portkey bookmark and Trelawney postcard by Katie Abey, and a crystal ball lip balm by Literary Lip Balms. It was great fun to put together and we’re hoping to find the time to create another one in future.
We recently added 4 oz candle tins to the Etsy shop. Most are a smaller version of jar candles but there are a few tin-only options. They’re all glittery and we love being able to offer another size of candle.
Since Punnydukes opened in December we’ve sent regular candle orders to the store. The latest order we decided to deliver ourselves and it was lovely to visit the shop again and see our candles on the shelves.
