Mrs. Bradley, what’s your backstory and how did you birth the idea of having your own candle line?
My love for candles started as a little girl watching my mom buy candles. But the actual adventure into making them first began when my husband mentioned a few times he wanted to make candles. I did a little research and purchased everything needed for him to start. Of course it sat there for weeks maybe a month later I decided to play with it one year later I haven’t put candles down. I honestly believe sometimes God gives our vision through someone else. My husband is not so much a candle maker but he is very smart when it comes to business.
Is the process for creating unique scents difficult?
Creating candles is honestly like a science experiment lol. Making candles and come up with scents and names can be challenging until you get the hang of it.
What have you done to grow your business to where it is today?
I honestly have the BEST customers hands down word of mouth has been everything. I also do a lot of promoting on Facebook and I go to craft shows as much as possible.
If you could go back, would you do anything different?
No, I wouldn’t. As this whole experience has been a learning experience, if anything I would have started sooner.
What are your plans for the future growth of your company?
Keep watching Pretty Queen Candles will be a household name. My plan is to get all of my products sold in stores and have a store front of my own.
How had social media played a part in your business?
Social media has been amazing it helps reach people that aren’t local or even in same state. I’ve been able to collect email addresses from people who visit my social media profiles and make loyal customers.
Any advice for others that want to start a candle company?
DO YOUR RESEARCH! Take your time, test out EVERY candle formula, wick and get insurance.
Where can we go to place an order?
Orders can be placed through the website www.prettyqueencandles.com and for wholesale inquires firstname.lastname@example.org
