Just a thought…
We received a lovely gift at the market this past weekend. Two of our customers gave Bob a candle that they had created in honor of him. The MAME Luxury Soy Candle are created by two friends, Maria and Megan, who locally hand make all of their candles. The candles are made from soy, so that they will burn longer, and come in a variety of scents with names like “Sunday Brunch”, “Summers in Colorado”, “Downtown Friday Night” and “Happy Hour”. The candles were created to honor places or moments they love, and they were sweet enough to name one the “Farmer’s Market”. The “Farmer’s Market” candle is a mix of gardenia, oranges and lavender and reminds me as well of the market, especially early in the morning when the baskets are piled high with all sorts of goodies from the farm.
We were touched at thoughtfulness and will vouch that the candle not only has a lovely, light scent, but is also beautifully packaged. (A nice hostess gift, perhaps?)
You can find MAME candles on their Etsy site, here, or you can find them at Jam on 1st Street in Scottsdale or at Urban Wax on 40th St. and Camelback. You can also find them on Facebook.
Just a little local gift idea I thought I would pass along!
