The Original How to Make – How to Market – and How to Sell Your Gel Candles Resource
While strolling the aisles of an open-air market one fine Sunday morning back in 1998, something caught my eye that stopped me dead in my tracks.
“Will you look at that!” I said as I raced towards a booth with my husband in close pursuit.
At the booth I picked up the object that I had spied. It was a miniature aquarium of sand, seashells, glass fish and blue water… only, “Hey wait a minute, this isn’t water! And there’s a wick in it! What is this stuff?” I asked.
“Gel,” said the woman at the booth, “it’s a gel candle.”
“It’s a candle?” I asked amazed, as I turned it about. I was mesmerized as I looked down upon it, and up at it, and into it sideways and all around, turning it this way and that in the light.
“Yes, it’s a candle. I have three different sizes as you see here,” she said as she pointed to the items on her table.
As I clasped my mini aquarium treasure in my hands, I gazed at the other candles on display. They were all beautiful.
