I’m amazed at just how quickly the days, weeks and months are rushing by this year. It’s nearly August and what a year it’s been so far for Bridge Park Candle Company. After nervously setting out my stall and selling my first candle at Denbigh Town Hall last November, I’ve launched a range of mini candles and wax melts and 3 beautiful new fragrances.
I’ve been all over North Wales and the North West, Shropshire and Birmingham and have met so many lovely people along the way. My wonderful husband John has been with me every step of the way. He’s chauffeured me around with boxes of candles and melts, fetched the bacon and egg sandwiches, coffee & biscuits and provided lots laughter, chit chat, good advice and all round general support.
The presentation of my stall has evolved from a row of lonely looking candles lined up like soldiers on parade to a full, colourful, display which is not exactly my perfect stall yet but is well on it”s way. It’s been a super busy time so I’ve had to introduce some extra discipline and structure to my days in order to keep on top of it all.
When I reflect on the year so far though, what stands out most for me is the fabulous support and encouragement I’ve had from my wonderful family & friends and of course all of my lovely customers, some of whom I now consider to be friends.
I’m excited to see what the rest of the year brings. I’m busy testing new fragrances so watch this space for news of my next new fragrance launch, and of course I’m already planning my range of Christmas fragrances and gift packs.
