Candle.wtf “WOW THAT’S FANTASTIC” CANDLES

This is one of our favourite small business finds this season! Meet the talented and absolutely charming scent guru, Antonina! “Hey guys! My name is Antonina, and I am a founder of Candle.wtf (Wow, That’s Fantastic!). I’ve always considered myself as, “scent-driven”, and often joke that I must be part hound.  As such, I have always loved scented candles, and started making them a couple years ago, as a DIY. Not only did I get totally into the creative process, but also became fully immersed in the calming and/or uplifting affects of certain fragrances (set to the warmth of a lit wick).

For this reason, they only use 100% recycled and biodegradable packaging. All padded mailers and boxes...

Spirit Bear Coffee Company

Raven was sent by the creator of the universe, to redesign the earth after the first great ice age of cleansing. After Mother Earth added the foliage, Raven made all the new animals big and small. Then lastly, he made a Spirit Bear — a symbolic gift of peace and harmony to all creatures of the earth. Inspired by this story, Spirit Bear Coffee Company was born. Today, products from this quality coffee operation can be found in over 600 locations countrywide. The company, clearly having fun with their brand, sells the likes of “Raven" espresso beans (full of life and strength), “Eagle” medium roast (soaring flavour) and “Frog-Breakfast Blend” light roast (jump start your day).  It is an honour...
