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!

DailyScrubLogo

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!

Bay Candle Co. and The Vintage Pearl ~ A Baby Love Giveaway

Friends, we could not be more excited to offer you all an incredible giveaway today!  As a mother, I have been a fan of The Vintage Pearl for several years.  I have a beautiful necklace given to me with the names of my sons lovingly hand stamped on it with their birthstones attached.  It is a wonderful reminder of mother’s love for her children.  The Vintage Pearl began as a creative outlet for its owner, Erin, who was a stay-at-home mom to her four sweet children.  Over the years, it has blossomed into a popular business, where each piece of jewelry is handcrafted from start to finish.  The Vintage Pearl’s custom jewelry is hand stamped with your names, dates, or meaningful phrases, making them a special keepsake.  The company’s desire is to design and create beautiful handmade pieces that will connect with your heart and soul.

For those of you familiar with Bay Candle Co. by Sweet Melissa’s Fragrance Factory, you’ll know we are home of Sweet Fragrances and Beautiful Light.  Our candles have been described by an industry professional as “…beautiful experiences in fragrances and light.  Bay Candle Co.’s candles combine elements of beautiful photography; high-quality, vibrantly colored, renewable soy wax; and luxurious fragrances, and are much more than just candles…they are an experience.”  They are hand crafted with the highest quality soy wax in the industry; two wicks for a cleaner, efficient, and brighter burn; and a proprietary blend of essential oils and fragrances.  Purchasing a Bay Candle Co. candle means you are thinking green by supporting America’s soybean farmers, supporting products made in the USA, and donating to our Brightening the Lights of Success Scholarship Fund, which will help two learners (one traditional and one adult) follow their dreams.

Much like The Vintage Pearl’s goal with their jewelry, our goal is to design and create beautiful candles that combine elements of photography, color, and fragrances that will evoke sweet and pleasant memories of people, places, and things you love.  One of our very first customers provided us these beautiful words after receiving her Little Fingers & Little Toes candle from our Signature Collection, “I love it!  Within seconds of lighting the fragrance began to fill the room and it was wonderful.  I sat back and closed by eyes and could feel my baby in my arms again, snuggled up to my neck and smelling fresh from her bath.  A fragrance no mother ever forgets.  This morning there was still a very light scent lingering in the room, reminding me of pleasant memories from the night before.” ~ Bonnie B., North Carolina

We could not be more honored and excited to team up with The Vintage Pearl to offer you our amazing Baby Love Giveaway!  As someone who has watched The Vintage Pearl grow into an amazing company and who has been inspired by its owner, it is incredibly rewarding to be able to partner with such a wonderful organization.

Thank you, sweet friends, family, fans, and customers!

Sweet friends, fans, customers, and retail partners of Bay Candle Co., thank you all so much for your incredible support since we launched Bay Candle Co.!  You all are amazing, and we are incredibly grateful and lucky to be among such wonderful people.

What an incredible journey this has been!  This all started with one design and a dream and has turned into much more than we could have ever have imagined.  We are located in 9 stores throughout Virginia and North Carolina and growing!  We have 7 candle designs (soon to be 12 in October) and 3 Collections!  We have been featured on several blogs, in Virginia Living Magazine, and have partnered with some amazing companies for some wonderful joint giveaways in October!  We have set up our Brightening the Lights of Success Scholarship Fund and look forward to awarding two recipients next year!  We’ve partnered with our AMAZING company photographer who has been an incredible supporter of our journey.  To say we are grateful is really an understatement.

One of the truly exciting and awesome experiences of our company is meeting and talking with our customers.  We LOVE our customers!  You all are the best!  We’ve had the opportunity to talk with several of you over the phone and some of those conversations turned into 20 or 30 minute conversations just getting to know each other.  LOVE that!  We are incredibly appreciative to know you all are spending your hard-earned money on a candle for yourself and your loved one, and that you believe in our company, our candles, and our mission.  Love you all!

Our other favorite part of this journey has been meeting our incredible retail partners and company photographer, Warthan Farms Photography. Our beautiful local stores are fantastic.  Their owners are amazing, hard-working, talented, beautiful people.  We would not be where we are today without the wonderful support of our retail partners, and we thank you all so much for your support and for believing in us.  Local friends and fans, we encourage you to visit our local stores when you are out and about this weekend!  They are all set up for the Fall and have beautiful items available as gifts for your home, your family, and for you!  They will greet you with huge smiles and big hearts, and you will not be disappointed.

As a huge thank you to all of our wonderful friends, family, customers, retail partners, and everyone who has believed in our company and given us a chance, we are having one of our favorite things, a SALE!  We’ve received so many amazing compliments about our candles, and they’ve evoked such sweet, special memories of people, places, and things our customers love – Fall, precious babies, Virginia, their favorite college, their home, and the list goes on.  To know that something we’ve created has brought about such sweet moments for our customers is truly the BEST part of this journey.  We want you all to be able to share in those experiences if you find a candle design in our store that you love which is why we are having a sale this weekend ~ Saturday, 9/28 through Sunday, 9/29.

To see our current candle designs, Visit our Online Store at http://www.BayCandleCo.com.  Please also check out our Story of the Conch.  My Granddaddy was an incredible man, and I never imagined what a wonderful role he would play in our journey.

Thank you, amazing fans, friends, family, customers, and retail partners!  We are wholeheartedly grateful, and we love you all!

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!
