About Us

Nice to Meet You!

...

"Hobby gone wild" would be the best description if asked how Village Craft and Candle came to be.  Now with close to 20 years in the business, it is safe to say that the goodies in our shop are "tried, tested and true".  Kind of like the Hair Club for Men commercial, not only do we sell the products, we use them in the creations that grace our shelves. Our humble beginning in the basement of Sue's home keep us grounded, offering a comfortable, approachable perspective to our newcomers.

We pride ourselves in being a leading supplier for candle and soap making products in Canada.  It's a pleasure to introduce others to the art, and see where it goes from there.  The retail store at 158 Queen Street in St. Marys, Ontario is the fourth expansion of the business. The store is well known for its specialization in custom candles and votive candles in close to 100 fragrances. The last relocation in 2015 brought the addition of the “Candle Bar”, a fun area for classes and get-togethers for locals and visitors alike.

A Little About Us

...


Sue Griffiths -CEO  (Creator ExtraOrdinaire)  Head honcho, candle guru, make work master.  Mover of skids, mover of numbers.  Suffers from constant creative brain activity, resulting in endless product additions and ongoing projects for the staff.

Leanne Keeler - Superior organizer, master of packing a thousand items into a dice sized box.  Specialized in precision and detail, able to keep things in squares and straight lines, yet has a keen eye for comfy home decor display.  Loves to spend the VCC$ to adorn the gift shop.

Shelby Caudle - Writer, crafter, self proclaimed lover of snacks (and silly hats and video games).  Social media master, photographer, web wonder, customer service specialist. Can't figure out our site, 1-800-call Shelby!

Erin Fifield - Our latest addition, making our three legged stool into a four legged chair.  The graphics gal, do-all, go-to creator, designer and another set of hands for pouring candles.  We haven't figured out what other talents she is hiding, so her role is to be considered "evolving".

Abby, Paige and Mary Lou - floating in and out between pockets of school and life, these lovely ladies pour, count, pack and label, pile, and repeat.  Many hands make light work.
