CASTING A GLOW

CASTING A GLOW

We know that you love to shop for candles. They fragrance your home, create an atmosphere and make the perfect gift for loved ones, and even people that you don’t know that well.¬†Before every market, we sift through dozens of applications by very talented Australian candle makers. We curate a selection that offers diversity and represents different methods and styles. Here, we list the traders who you can buy your candles from at the September market. Don’t forget, it’s on 7 & 8 September, 10am – 4pm.

MRS NARGAR & CO.

Sydney based Mrs Nargar & Co. carefully curates a selection of fragrances that will suit your mood, whatever it is. The 100% coconut soy wax candles are presented in gorgeous quilted ball preserving jars and feature chalkboard style labels. The diffusers are perfect for bathrooms because they fill your room with scent all day long. And you’ll always get a smile and pretty eco packaging.

SOUL & ARK

Hand crafted in Sydney, Soul & Ark‘s candles and diffusers are beautifully presented in amber glass, black & gold ceramic or copper jars and fill the air with their exotic scents.

HONEY & GLOW

Canberra locals, Honey & Glow, keep their own bees and turn the wax into a whole range of products, including Australian beeswax candles. If you want your candles straight from the hive, and with the fewest ingredients, head to the gourmet food hall to visit the stall.

LILLYDALE CANDLE CO

First timers to the market in June, Lillydale Candle Co make nostalgic scented candles that embrace simplicity and make your house feel like home. Based in the Yarra Valley, they hand pour soy wax candles using 100% natural GM-free soy wax, premium Australian-made fragrance oils and lead free cotton and paper braided wicks. Small batch, resulting in authentic quality.

LIGHT MY FIRE

With fragrances blended in Melbourne and small batches made of soy wax, the candles from Light My Fire are beautifully packaged and made to be lit and enjoyed and loved.

GREEN CANDLE CO.

With a theme of hand poured, natural ingredients and home blended fragrances, Green Candle Co. will be at the market for the first time. Their minimal design and pared back simplicity will result in you loving the design as much as the candles.

MELBOURNE CANDLE COMPANY

Simple and sustainable soy wax candles in tins are scented with oils by Melbourne Candle Company. Most of the scents are named after a historic Melbourne location. However, new and exclusive to Handmade, a range that celebrates the nation’s capital. Each candle is hand poured in into its own tin and wrapped in a 1880s map of the associated landmark.

L2 CANDLE LAB

No, it’s not food! L2 Candle Lab is different from other candle makers. Made from all natural soy wax and Australian beeswax, these creations are fun, quirky and unique. Come and have a look a the range, that looks good enough to eat!
