New Scotland Candle Company
The New Scotland Candle Company was created by Erin Wilson and Mark Beaudry. Both originally from Ontario, in 2012 they took a spontaneous road trip east. Two months later, they were hooked and moved here. After spending some time in New Brunswick and a couple of moves (and two rescue kitties) later, they have found their home in Annapolis Valley.
"We first made candles as a weekend project to upcycle some of our ever-growing collection of mason jars. The experiment was a fair success - even though we had no idea what we were doing (one of the candles from our first batch even had sprinkles in it). And from that weekend we never looked back. Over the next few months, we were able to develop a small line of fragrances and start attending small markets in the area. We received such an amazingly positive response, and our business has only grown from there."
