Christmas Stall

This week we set up our temporary Christmas Stall alongside the Charity Christmas Cards in St Peters' Church, Oundle. This means we are out of the elements - although the church is a little chilly, so if you do pop round don't be too alarmed by the amount of jumpers I've managed to squeeze on!

We are there Thursdays and Saturdays and will have a selection of gift ideas from the website available for purchase - have a good sniff of our scented candles and lovely hand-made soaps.

We also will have items not yet on the website - real one of a kind pieces to snap up while they are still there. These include new designs by Dormouse Designs' Anja Schafer and Chain Of Daisies' Caroline Sale. Come try some on and have a chat every Thursday and Saturday up until Christmas.

Artisans Spotlight - GelDLights

We are proud to do a regular small piece on our artisans, their latest work and, of course, how you can have their beautiful creations in your own home. It seemed right for the first post to be about GelDLights, or LeeAnna, an artisan whose works in part inspired me to start The Emporium!

Today I had the great pleasure of unwrapping a wondrous parcel of her creations.

Hand made, gel wax candles, each individually poured, scented and sculpted to create a truly amazing and original piece each time.

From the wax 'biscuit' base, through the vanillary main pillar and then topped with an amazing topping of sweet wax 'chocolate' chips, wax sauces or shining wax fruits, these candles smell and look absolutely amazing - the scent changes as the wax does, with these votives lasting 12 hours in total.

We are proud to have a selection of her candles, including larger centerpiece candles, available here in The Emporium. We also accept custom orders for parties, special occassions and weddings, crafted exactly to your requirements.
