The Handmade Market Spotlight: Southern Elegance Candle Co
October 14, 2016by The Handmade Market
D’Shawn Russell from Southern Elegance Candle CoDescribe your style, influences, inspiration, and what you plan to bring: The candles of Southern Elegance Candle Company are hand poured deep in the heart of North Carolina. We create small batch hand crafted soy candles that celebrate everything there is to love about the South: the aromas, the flavors, the traditions and the storied cities. Our candles focus on the commonality that bring us together in a shared history. Each candle is named after a Southern city with a fragrance that is reflective of its Southern Roots and tells the city’s unique history through fragrance. At Southern Elegance, we work to remind our fellow Southerners of our shared heritage. Like many others, time spent with family and the joys we find in the simple things are our touchstones. With this in mind, we lovingly craft each scent and city combination to elicit a fond memory, to whisk you to a place of pure joy In you experience, what has been your best venue for selling your work: Our best selling venue has been Etsy (both on the retail and wholesale side) We have picked up about half of our retail partners through Etsy.
Which artist at The Handmade Market are you excited to see/meet? There are two vendors that I look forward to meeting.
1) Milk Street Soap because we met at a holiday venue last year and had a blast. I look forward to checking in with her and seeing how things have progressed over the last year.
2) Whispering Willow because I have been following them for awhile on Instagram. So, it is always nice to meet the creators behind a brand that I admire. Follow Southern Elegance Candle Co: Website- secandleco.com
