Who Wants To Borrow A Candle?

We love introducing new people to our cleaner burning scented candles.

Normally, we do this in one of two ways:


  1. We just sell the candles to people .. whether on our website, at a booth, during one of our carport yard sales, or even straight out of the trunk of our car.


  2. We give candles away .. usually votives, but sometimes a bag of melts, or occasionally a 16oz jar



Recently I was alerted to a third way ...

And it's so obvious, I can't believe we weren't already doing it.

Instead of simply giving the candles away, we're going to start letting people "borrow" them for 3 or 4 days ... maybe we could even call it "taking your scent for a test burn".

Basically, we'll let people choose a candle, or a bag of melts from our shelf. Then arrange to meet with them again in 3 days .. at which point they'll have a couple of choices:


  1. Return the candle to us, with no obligation. (we burn plenty of candles ourselves, so no biggie)

  2. Pay for the candle, and keep enjoying it



It's a win / win for both of us.

Everybody likes the idea of a money back guarantee.

This is even better than "money back".

You only have to buy it if you like it. ;-)

Looking forward to opening up my "loan closet".

  1. Thanks, Todd!! I never really thought about loaning a candle to someone to burn, but sounds like a great idea to let people smell and try our candles to see the quality and best candles on the market.

    Thanks for sharing this with me....I'm going to give this a try. I'm anxious to see how it works for those candle lovers. They certainly won't find any better candle on the market.

    Thanks again for being a great sponsor and sharing your comments with us.
