It’s that time of year again where people lose their damn minds over candle sales and I’m a part of that group of people. I cannot wait to get some new fresh candle scents to fill my home with great aromas and most importantly for a great price. Last year in an effort to buy candles from Bath & Body Works during their annual sale, I realized instead I should support the many black owned candle companies here in South Florida and I wrote a story to share what I learned. The story garnered much attention and allowed me to share this platform with these emerging businesses. I saw they were just as compatible as meeting my candle needs as any big brand store.
So what started as a fluke has now morphed into our annual #HyLoNews Candle Co list where we let you all know about the Black Owned Candle Companies based here in South Florida. We took things a step further from last year and asked each company featured to give us details on any sales they are currently running. We also wanted to get this info to you before the BBW Annual sale so you have no excuses but to support these businesses, which this year includes some kid entrepreneurs.
In no particular order, dive into the 2019 list of Black Owned Candle Companies you should support instead of Bath & Body Works.
