The Little Yorkshire Candle Company is opening a brand new city centre scent emporium this Saturday on York shopping thoroughfare Goodramgate.
Through this physical outlet, the popular company, which to date has sold its range of scent products online and through other retailers such as Castle Howard, will have its own bricks-and-mortar shop. In-store events will include candle workshops and invite the public into the shop’s creative domain, to share their skills as well as their products.
If you fund me, you’ll be helping support a passionate creative get a footing on Yorkshire’s independent retail ladder. You’ll be helping to bring something truly unique - an all-natural home fragrance store - to the streets of York.
The Little Yorkshire Candle Company’s manager Alex Hall says: “Over the last two years, sharing my all time passion with the public has been incredible. I poured so much of myself into each and every candle and wanted to create something that not only helped make people happier and calmer but also supported artists and the beautiful region I call home. Working with poets, artists and creatives to bring my whole brand to light we all recognised quite how unique and special what we have is and it is for this reason I am ready for my next step.”
Alex has started an Indiegogo campaign to help shoulder the costs of the first steps toward opening a city centre shop, and is hoping for the support of the community: “If you fund me, you’ll be helping support a passionate creative get a footing on Yorkshire’s independent retail ladder. You’ll be helping to bring something truly unique - an all-natural home fragrance store - to the streets of York. This year, I’ve poured candles for a Michelin star restaurant, for York Fashion Week, developed a scent with fashion designer and ex-Mulberry Head of Creative Scott Henshall and a theatre company.”
The campaign, which runs for the next 30 days, includes attractive exclusive perks including candles, workshops and gifts suitable for Christmas. Click below to read more and contribute, or contact Alex at: [email protected]INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN
