Welcome to Old Flame Candle Co! For the last 20 years, I was a designer by trade. I have a very real love of all things beautiful and, more so, a love of items or spaces that share a visual story. I also have a fondness for great candles and, because I have two kids and three dogs, I have always NEEDED them, too. I may have even had designated candle drawers full of fragrances for any occasion.
What drove me crazy, though, was tossing the candles after use! It felt wasteful to just “pitch them,” but they sure weren’t pretty enough to repurpose. While burning them, I often found myself putting a proverbial "bag over their heads," hiding them inside other vessels so they could be smelled, but not seen. That's when it hit me … in my career, I sourced uniquely vintage accessories for clients; why not hand-pick beautiful antique vessels and turn them into chic candles for design-savvy candle buyers? And, just like that, Old Flame Candle Co. was born.
Thank you for supporting our small business. It means so much to me that you, too, see the worth in these vintage pieces. Together, we can change the wasteful nature of the candle industry, while bringing beauty into our homes.
