Hey there! I'm Jenn, owner and candlemaker of Country Flickers. I am first and foremost wife to my awesome husband Vic and a stay-at-home mom of our two little boys. We live in East Granby, CT. I started pouring candles in 2015 and officially turned it into a business in 2017.
I always wanted to make and sell things. Growing up I loved to do scroll art and other woodcrafts but never got far enough to sell them. With the help of Vic, who started his own construction business (VB Construction LLC) in 2016, I was able to take the plunge and start my own candle business!
I love candles. I love fragrances that remind me of seasons and food or drinks I enjoy - Fall, Christmas, coffee, chocolate! I love the romantic ambiance the flickering light gives off. I take pride in making quality candles that don't give off the black soot everyone hates. I'm thrilled when I have returning customers who inform me they no longer buy any other candles. It's no wonder I love what I do!
But candles have a deaper meaning to me. Candles were originally used to give off light before electricity came along - not just for enjoying fragrances :) I look at them flickering and I'm reminded of how we are like candles. Each of us gives off a flame, a light. The question is, are we always burning in an already lit room and not used to our full potential or are we burning it where it is needed most? Hopefully both! It only takes one candle to light up the darkest room. YOU can make a difference in this world! If you haven't heard the song "Go Light Your World" by Chris Rice I would encourage you to look it up.
Thanks for taking the time to read! If you have any questions feel free to shoot me a message through my contact page.
