As anyone who reads this blog regularly knows, I am passionate about supporting local and indie businesses. I was disappointed when the Alternative Night Market was cancelled, as it seemed to stock a lot of goodies, so decided to check out some of the sellers via Instagram. It was there I stumbled on On My Wick Candles, who make candles with a literary theme (“candles based on stories and magic”, according to their Etsy shop).
Luckily I got my orders in before they shut down for the lockdown (as with many small businesses, they sort and post orders by hand, so it’s not always safe for them to go to the post office) and my parcel arrived today. These candles smell beautiful, and I love the simple, unfussy packaging – and were a total bargain at 3 for £15 (plus postage).
Why not check them out when they are back online? You can find them here.
