Hello and welcome to Martha's Vineyard Candle Company(R) online. My name is Linda and I started M.V. Candle in early 1999. Now, after several successful years of making the candles at home and selling them out of my husband's bait & tackle shop, I finally feel ready and very pleased to bring my candles to you on the internet. Although the demand for the candles has steadily grown, you can be certain that each and every candle produced and shipped out the front door of my home is still hand-poured and carefully inspected by me personally. I continue to purchase the materials, design and draw the labels, hand-pour each candle and bring them to market.
I'm a member of the International Guild of Candle
Artisans(IGCA) and candlemaker by trade. For me,
candlemaking is not just a hobby or pass-time activity but a full time
occupation and way of life worthy of the full-time attention and effort
that I put into it.
My personal goal is simply to make the finest quality candles
available, not to make the most. I work hard to assure that every
person who purchases a Martha's Vineyard Candle Co. product will be
satisfied with my work, and enjoy using my candles as much as I
do making them. If you ever have the opportunity to visit
Martha's Vineyard please make sure you visit the retail shop located on
the West end of Oak Bluffs Harbor.
