We've been making our own candles since 1992. Each year we expand our offering of quality gift items with things we fall in love with. We only sell things we love.


Call or email Wilma on any questions with fragrances including: Scented Jar Candles, Fragrance Lamps, Reed Diffusers & Scented Laundry Detergent. She's always loved highly scented great smelling candles and has fallen in love with her fragrance lamps (the best thing about selling them is getting to "test" them every day!). Wilma would be delighted to help you select your favorite fragrances.

Wilma, Courtney's mom, has always loved scented candles and has burned them for as long as she can remember. She started making her own very highly scented jar candles in 1993 because she was not happy with the quality of the candles she could buy. They didnít have enough fragrance and burned up too fast.

Her friends and family raved about the candles she made for herself so she created and gave away dozens and dozens. In so doing, she perfected the formula for Courtneyís Candles, the super highly scented candles with very long burn times that have become a market favorite among those who love and appreciate high quality scented candles.

Wilma named the business after her most wonderful creation, her daughter Courtney. The little girl holding a candle on the label and logo is Courtney at age 7. Courtney is graduating from College with a degree in Marketing in May 2012.

The business started in Wilma's kitchen, grew into her garage, then into her parents garage too, and then took over our current 10,000 sqft building. Despite the rapid growth of the business, quality is assured as every candle is still produced in accordance with Wilma's painstakingly developed recipe by family members.

Wilma is a dedicated shop-a-holic and everywhere she goes she looks for new gift lines to add to our line up. Over the years, Wilma has found a select few gift lines that she loved and bought for our home: Heather Goldminc's Clayworks, Rhythm Small World Clocks, Seiko Melodies in Motion Clocks, many brands of Fragrance Lamps, Firepots and Reed Diffusers, BirdBrain Hummingbird Feeders and Gazer Balls, Candle Warmers, Tyler Candles, WoodWick Candles, Zodax Porcelain Diffusers and much more. When we find something we love, we go all out... become experts in the product line and stock 100% of the available items.

We do our best to treat every customer as we would like to be treated: with respect & honesty, value pricing, and super quick service.

Give us a try and you'll be sure to join the ranks of our super-satisfied customers.
