After working in resort hotels around the Northeast it was time to settle down and raise a family. I found myself home with a baby and in need of a “stay at home mom job”. My sister owned an antique shop close by and she was in need of scented candles in her shop. After a lesson from a candle making cousin I put my culinary arts and 4-H background to the test. I began going to yard sales, flea markets and estate sales to find old canning jars. During my search I found antiques similar to what my sister Cindy was selling in her shop. I began buying old primitive boxes along with the canning jars. A few test pours, a few antiques sold, and I was up and running! The Primitive Box began. To this day I still love those old boxes plus the candles smell amazing!
Candles are hand poured using soy wax. Made in the USA.
