Behind the ScenesColleen TuohyComment

Our Beginnings:

The first candles we created in 2014 were soy candles in hand-painted glass jars. Our love of paint and all things weathered and distressed were the driving forces behind this product line. To this day these candles continue to be a main staple of our business and sizes range from our smaller 4 oz. jelly jars to our larger 8 oz. and 16 oz. mason jars.

Our signature logo is hand-stamped on recycled card stock and can be seen hanging attached to our jars, hand-tied with jute twine. The candle scent is identified on the hand-tag.

    Our atlantic avenew Logo:

    If you look closely at our signature black and white logo, you will find a paint brush and a match criss crossing at the center of the circle.

    Our Production Schedule:

    From time to time we release small quantities of our Classic Hand-painted Collection, also referred to as "The Classics". We hand-paint each jar during the spring and summer months when the weather is more conducive to painting outdoors. Jars are then filled with our signature soy wax, blended with natural and essential fragrance oils. From start to finish, there are more than 10 steps involved!

    A Truly Unique Gift:

    These weathered and distressed candles are perfect for someone looking for a truly unique, one-of-a-kind candle. Don't forget, you can up-cycle these containers after you are finished burning the candle. More on that in a later post!
