Soy Candles and Room Sprays

fragrance oilsWhat’s your name & Your Company Name:  My name is Noelle Walters Davis and my company is Suffield Suds, Scents & Sundries

Why did you decide to go into business?  What was your motivation?  How long have you been in business?  I began making candles about 10 years ago.  Originally I started making candles for my own use because I was fed up with the lack of quality candles on the market.  What was available from the big box stores either turned my walls black with soot, or had no scent throw after they were lit.  I have always been deeply involved in the handcrafted movement and candle making quickly became a passion.  After reading everything that I could get my hands and  lots of trial and error, I’ve developed my own all natural wax blend and use only the finest fragrances available (especially from Natures Garden!)

What products do you make and sell?  In addition to soy candles, wax buttons, and room sprays, I also offer cold processed soap, handspun yarns, and hand woven textiles.  Everything handmade by me!

What are your business goals?  My dream business goal would be to quit my day job and focus on my business full-time.  My husband is a great support and we have a five year plan where (fingers crossed!) that will hopefully come true.  I would love to open my own little candle shop and feature works from other artisans as well.

What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?  My number one favorite product from Natures Garden is the fragrance oils of course!  I have been purchasing them for years and have never been disappointed.  Cold processed soap is also a passion of mine and I love the variety of clays, additives, butters, and oils Natures Garden offers.  Soap making allows me to get really creative, and the selection they offer encourages me to be really imaginative!

1.What’s your name & Your Company Name?
Liz Flugel, Liz’s Country Collectibles

2. Why did you decide to go into business? What was your motivation? How long have you been in business?
I have always been a *crafty* person so this gave me a way to channel my energies and ideas into a business, especially after people kept complementing me on my items, asking me if they could buy my items and telling me I should go into business for myself. I have had a Washington state business license for approximately 20 years.

3. What products do you make and sell?
I do a wide variety of items from soaps, lotions, bath salts, bath fizzies and soy wax candles & tarts to Red Hat bears, Victorian bears and home décor that includes decorated wreaths, swags, window boxes, bird cages and assorted silk floral arrangements. During the last year I also added a bakery line of candles & soaps that includes soy wax cobblers, pies, muffins & cinnamon rolls as well as soap cinnamon rolls, cupcakes, carrot cakes, brownies & donuts.

4. What are your business goals?
To continue to make quality products at a reasonable price and to keep promoting my business so it reaches more customers. I have currently sold items to not only the U.S. and Canada but also to the U.K. and Greece.

5. What are some products you use from Natures Garden; what are your favorite products from Natures Garden?
I use a variety of your fragrance & essential oils and herbs. I was particularly THRILLED when I found your Huckleberry Harvest and Spiced Cranberry after the suppliers I used to purchase comparable scents to these two went out of business since these are two of my top selling fragrances. And I love, love, LOVE your prices because they are very reasonable and allow me to keep my prices down which is very important in today’s economy.
