We will be Closed August 7-20th

Many may not realize, but Heirloom Candles is a one woman owned/ran business. I'm having major gastric surgery on August 8th. The expected downtime is a week or two, but I hope to be up and running by the 20th. In the unfortunate event that my healing takes longer, I will have to extend the downtime.  For my loyal customers (new and old) I have been working to steadily increase my inventory on Amazon Handmade, which all ship directly from the warehouse via Amazon Prime. (Though you don't need to buy a Prime subscriber to buy.) Most of what will...

Upcoming downtime -- New Products

I'm having sinus surgery on June 27th so in preparation I will be closed June 26th and through possibly the 30th for recovery. If I can open sooner I will, but I hear it's a tough recovery for a few days. Here's a list of new products added the past couple of weeks. Try something new today! New scents were added, not just one or two, but nearly 30 new scents and more will likely come for Christmastime. These include: Grapefruit & Mint (soy and beeswax) Bamboo & Coconut Japanese Cherry Blossom Creme Brulee Caribbean Teakwood Day at the Spa...

Hey... how about some more new items?

I've been hard at work creating and experimenting these days. I've created a "Good Habits" line which features all of our alcoholic and honestly bad habits sort of stuff. Here you'll find Whiskey, Pina Colada, Amaretto and several other new candle types of this nature. One I'm really excited about is Vanilla Pipe Tobacco which is also included in Good Habits.  Abercrombie Fierce is back. I have found a new supplier of the fragrance oil that it seems to be stronger and better quality. I'm adding a few more masculine scents just in time for Father's Day, so stay tuned!...

Moving to a new home

I'm sooo excited, after a 2 year journey (battle) getting out of Alabama and moving for a better job for my husband and better health care for our son (autism) we are FINALLY moving into our dream home. We have been renting a beautiful home nearby since March but on 1/26 we close on the new place (half mile away) and start moving in. I will have a huge basement studio devoted to my candle business and cannot wait to get back up and running and get back to enjoying life and finally being able to enjoy being STILL for...

Looking ahead to 2018 -- new products and ones going away soon

One of the most common requests I get about my candles are that people wished they came in a larger size. After much thinking (and lots of math calculations) I have decided that starting in 2018, or slightly before if I have time, that I'll be switching from 3.3oz glass tureens to 6oz glass tureens for my primary sale size. I'm going to continue to carry the 3.3oz but focus them as being my new style/size for wedding favors and the like. There will be a slight increase for the larger size but it won't be doubled or anything.  In...
