MEET THE MAKER
Hi There! My name is Shabi ( like not too shabby ) and I'm the proud owner of Market Candle Company. I thought I should share a bit about myself and my candles.
A little bit about me. I live in Newmarket, Ontario and I love this town almost as much as I love candles. I made my first batch of candles 2 years ago for my bridal shower favours and I've been learning more and more ever since.
If you've ever been to my house you've see candles in every room. It's a bit of a "thing". After doing some research and learning how much junk and toxins are in a lot of the big brand candles, I decided to take a leap of faith and make my own using clean, high quality ingredients. I love all things crafty and creative so candle making is actually a very relaxing activity for me.
I'm a simple gal. I love food, wine and the colour black. Every candle I make is done with love and represents all things fresh and flavourful. Although my labels and branding are dark, I promise I have a cheery soul. I love a good belly laugh more than anyone you know. :) But you can bet your life I'm wearin' a black top whenever you see me.
Mental health means a lot to me. I have a lot of family and friends who have suffered from mental health concern and sadly I've lost a couple to the fight. I was a psychology major in University, not because I thought I would be a successful psychologist, but because I wanted to learn more. And it truly changed my life. So it only makes sense that I donate $0.50 from every candle to the Canadian Mental Health Association. Sometimes I switch up the charity if a certain cause is moving me or in need.
I love my friends, my husband, my family and my life. And I'm so grateful for each and every one of my amazing clients. Thank you for buying local and supporting a small business. Each purchase means more to me than you'll ever know.
xoxo - Shabi
