Happy Holidays ~ CandleLove Sale

 
Greetings sweet friends!  We hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  As we celebrated and gave thanks with our family and friends yesterday, we were reminded and thankful for the love and support you all have shown us over this past year.  Our Bay Candle Co. journey has been an amazing one, and we are excited for the future!  In the short time we have been in existence, we have had the great pleasure of being selected to showcase our candle Collections in 11 stores throughout Virginia, North Carolina, and Maryland.  We have shipped candles all across our great country, and have met some wonderful customers throughout the US.  We have met amazing store owners and business men and women who have inspired us.  We are truly grateful for the opportunity to add sweet fragrances and beautiful light to your homes, and we thank you for your business.
 
As a thank you, we are offering all of you, our sweet customers, 20% off of your entire order with us this weekend.  Enter in code CandleLove at the time of checkout to save 20%.  Candles make wonderful, traditional gifts for loved ones, friends, party hosts, office colleagues, teachers, and special people in your lives.  There’s something magical and pure about the sweet beauty of a soy candle.  Candle light reminds us of traditions from days past, and of special times with family and friends.
 
Our candles are designed to remind our sweet customers of people, places, and things they love.  They are hand crafted of the finest soy wax available in the US, and with a blend of essential oils and fragrances not found in any other candle brands.  All of our candles are hand poured on a beautiful family farm in Kentucky, and are crafted by some of the best candle makers in the United States.  We use only American made products to create our candles, and we donate a portion of each candle sale to our Brightening the Lights of Success Scholarship Fund, where we will honor two learners next year. 
 
As you begin to think about gifts for your loved ones, we’d love for you to consider one of our beautiful candles.  We know shopping for candles online is unique, which is why we offer a 100% refund should your candles not meet your expectations when they arrive.  We stand behind our products, and our ultimate goal is for you, our dear customers, to be happy with your purchase.
 
Please visit our Online Store at www.BayCandleCo.com and check out our Collections.  We have wonderful candles available for the holidays, new and expecting parents, lovers of the great state of Virginia, friends of the Outer Banks, fans of several great universities and colleges in the US, and everything in between. 
 
Thank you for your support!  We look forward to continuing to be your candle company of choice, and we are so grateful for each of you.
 
From our family to yours, Happy Holidays!
 
Love,
The Bay Candle Co. family
 
 
 

A Cheerful Giveway by The Daily Scrub and Bay Candle Co.

Hi friends!  We are so excited to introduce you to The Daily Scrub, a wonderful and luxurious soap company featuring handcrafted, artisan soaps by Rachel Chieppa!

If you have not had the opportunity to check out handmade, artisan soaps, then take a look at Rachel’s beautiful creations in her ETSY shop or on her Facebook page.  Be careful, because if you are like me, you will be hooked!  The Daily Scrub’s soaps are beautiful, and I find myself staring at them (and the case of the Pumpkin Spice soap~wanting to eat it!).

The Daily Scrub offers soaps for all seasons and occasions.  Much like our candles, Rachel’s handcrafted artisan soaps are a celebration of places and things her customers love.  For example, her beautiful Tropical Waters Soap is a wonderful reminder of the beauty of your favorite beach.  Look at her attention to detail in this photo ~ amazing!

TheDailyScrubTropicalWaters

Rachel uses the finest ingredients available to hand craft her beautiful artisan soaps, and they will leave your skin feeling refreshed, rejuvenated, and moisturized.  The Daily Scrub has been featured in a number of publications and artisan shows around Virginia, and Rachel was selected to create a Signature Soap for the talented Jennifer Warthan of Warthan Farms Photography.  You can also find Rachel and her beautiful display of soaps at the Petersburg Farmers Market on the weekends!

We are excited today to team up with The Daily Scrub and offer our fans and customers a Holiday Cheer Giveaway!  Along our Bay Candle Co. journey, we have met some amazing and talented business owners, and Rachel is no exception.  Her soaps capture the essence and beauty of things and places her customers love, and provide the added benefit of cleansing and moisturizing.  Our Bay Candle Co. candles are designed to remind our sweet customers of people, places, and things they love and provided the added benefit of sweet fragrances and beautiful light.

We are fortunate to be showcased in 9 amazing retail stores throughout Virginia and North Carolina and growing!  Our candles have become popular due to our use of high quality soy wax (a renewable and natural resource), our all-American made materials, and our company’s mission to give back by donating a portion of each sale to our Brightening the Lights of Success Scholarship Fund.  We’ve received many wonderful compliments about our candles, and we’ve most recently been told that by one of our sweet customers that our candles are “1,000 times more beautiful and fragrant than any Yankee candle I’ve owned!”  Wow!  (We love Yankee candles, and we are THRILLED to be able to stand up among such a great leading brand of candles!)

Now for the Giveaway!  We are excited to offer one lucky fan of The Daily Scrub and Bay Candle Co. a package of The Daily Scrub’s wonderful Holiday Cheer Soaps (2 soaps) and one of our beautiful Classic Christmas candles from our Celebration Collection!

Sweet Sponsor Spotlight – Richmond Metro Woman Magazine

Friends, welcome to Sweet Sponsor Spotlight!

What is our Sweet Sponsor Spotlight?  If I had to pinpoint one of the most important things I’ve learned in my ten years as a marketing professional, it would have to be the power of word of mouth advertising.  It is incredibly valuable and meaningful, and the foundation that small business owners are built upon.

I believe in supporting fellow business owners who are doing great things.  I believe in the power of reciprocal advertising and all of its benefits.  Small businesses are the heartbeat of America.  I have known many small business owners during my life, and they are some of the most down-to-earth and hardest working individuals I have ever known.

Throughout the week, Sweet Melissa’s is honored to showcase organizations we believe in and who have taken the time to support us, and we ask that our sweet friends show our wonderful sponsors some love!

Sweet Sponsor Sunday – June 9, 2013

Friends, welcome to Sweet Sponsor Sunday!

What is Sweet Sponsor Sunday you ask?  Well, if I had to pinpoint the most important thing I’ve learned in my ten years as a marketing professional, it would have to be the power of word of mouth advertising.  It is so much more valuable than paid advertising, and infinitely more meaningful.

I believe in supporting fellow business owners who are doing great things.  I believe in the power of reciprocal advertising and all of its benefits.  Small businesses are the heartbeat of America.  I have known many small business owners during my life, and they are by far some of the most down-to-earth and hardest working individuals I have ever known.

On Sundays, Sweet Melissa’s hosts Sweet Sponsor Sundays and showcases organizations that we believe in and who have taken the time to support us, and we ask that our sweet friends show our wonderful sponsors some love!

Today, I have the privilege of showcasing a fantastic organization owned by a former school mate of mine, who also happens to be an amazing mommy to two sweet boys!
