It began like this..
Jeremy's Candles started when I decided to make a couple candles for myself. They turned out pretty good and so my family wanted a few. Some of my friends and my family's friends then asked if I could make one or two for them. Well, you know how the story goes.. Soon it became more than just a hobby. People were asking "Where can I get one of Jeremy's Candles". And now that's our name.
We are at local flea markets, the Saturday morning farm markets, arts and crafts shows and people just stopping by. It has grown from a one man operation to several people working quite a few hours to keep up with the demand. We hand pour to ensure even burning and maximum fragrance.
So the next logical step was to open an on-line store. So, here we are.. We hope you will give our candles a try, and we are sure that you will be very happy with the quality of our candles and their great scent.
We are a West Michigan company and we are very grateful for all the support and recommendations that our customers provide.
