Here at Fenwick Candles, we’re all about scent. Fresh, fruity, spicy or sweet, our little business revolves around fragrances and the absolute joy they bring.
Sadly, the internet hasn’t yet introduced ‘scratch and sniff’ online shopping, so for a candle business, that can make life a little tricky when our customers can’t actually smell our gorgeous goodies before they click ‘add to cart’ (hence our very detailed scent descriptions!)
That’s why we love getting out and about at craft fairs and shows, where we can meet our lovely customers face to face, chat about all things candles and wax melts – and let our highly scented products speak for themselves.
And now that the world is finally returning to some sort of normality, this year we’re celebrating in style with some truly fantastic events lined up.
First up, we’re excited to announce that we’ve been selected to participate in the amazing two-day Battle of the Stalls on the Mall event at Wellgate Shopping Centre in Dundee on Friday 22 and Saturday 23 October 2021 – just in time to show off our brand-new Hallowe’en fragrances Witches’ Cauldron and Pumpkin Spice.
We’re joining more than 20 other independent traders who will be showcasing their goods on Level 2 of the centre from 9am to 6pm each day, and visitors can vote for their favourite stall for the chance to win prizes. Come along and say hello – we’d love to see you there (and we’d love it too if you’d like to vote for Fenwick Candles! ) https://wellgatedundee.co.uk/news/battle-of-the-stalls-on-the-mall.
Just a couple of weeks later, you’ll find us at the Blair Castle Art, Craft & Food Christmas Fair between 10am and 4pm each day from Friday 6 November-Sunday 8 November. This wonderfully festive event is one of the biggest and best Christmas fairs in the country (it even featured on Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Christmas TV show!) and we can’t wait to join all the other amazing artisan crafters and foodies at magical Blair Castle.
This romantic venue will be home to 30 stalls in the stunning ballroom and hall (pictured above, pic by Exclusively Highlands) and there will be a Christmas market village on the castle forecourt with a further 30 exhibitors, including Fenwick Candles.
It’s the perfect place to find amazing Christmas gifts for all the family, from jewellery and fine art to home furnishings and hand-crafted beers, delicious sweets and treats and, of course, our highly scented hand-poured candles. Make a note in your diary now and we’ll see you there! https://fb.me/e/1445eqCfN
If you can’t make it to either of these fantastic events, we’re also taking part in the Erskine Events Christmas Online Market on Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 November (www.facebook.com/events/273437894083810). Shop from the comfort of your own home where you’ll find a wide range of gifts at the click of a mouse.
And finally, we can’t wait to see many of our regular local customers at Burrelton Christmas Market on Sunday 28 November from noon-3pm.
This small but perfectly formed festive event is very popular, so make sure you get there early to have the best choice of gifts from some amazing local craftspeople.
If you’re quick, you’ll be able to get your hands on our limited edition Christmas gift boxes that sell out every year!
Don’t forget, all of our highly scented candles and wax melts are available at our online store and we deliver across the UK. Happy shopping!
