A Look Back and a Candle Sale

I know we have all heard it many times before, but 2020 was a doozy. It seemed only fitting after all this time, to post for the first time in forever, to share where we are at, how we got there and offer a few apologies. If you are not at all interested in the "behind-the-scenes" part of the business, no worries! Just pop down to the bottom for the details on the sale! Let's start by heading back to March.

I do remember my first apartment on my own, having an absolutely horrible looking couch that was handed down to me that I had to cover with floral sheets.
