From the Founder: What we've been up to
Hey guys! Caylen here.
It's been a while since I hopped on here and wanted to fill you in with what we've been up to behind the scenes! It was a wild quarter!
As many of you know, we moved out of our Coquitlam office back in February. After 2 years of being in that space we had outgrown it months prior, and was just waiting for the right space to come around. Commercial rental space is difficult to find!
We ended up finding a great warehouse + showroom in the Surrey/Langley area after months of searching... and we couldn't be happier! More to come on that later.

FEBRUARY WAREHOUSE SALE
At the end of February we had a warehouse sale and online sale to avoid moving more than we needed to, in between a freakin' move and renovations – did you stock up on your favourite clean candle scents?!
INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY x SISTER SISTER
Proceeds from our Sister Sister Candle, Perfume Roller and Gift Box allowed us to make a donation over $300 to Dress for Success on behalf of International Women's Day this March. You guys truly know how to show up! THANK YOU.
Since getting the keys to our new space, we have been busy painting and creating custom work surfaces for a more efficient work flow for the team. Its finally coming together!
Finally, we will have a beautiful new showroom that allows you to come in, meet the team and smell every single candle scent - you might even get a sneak peek of Heather pouring a new scent! Our grand opening is happening at the end of April 2022 and we're just finishing up some final touches, so make sure you're signed up for our newsletter for your invite.
Amongst all of this craziness, we managed to launch our new Spring/Summer Collection too! If I do say so myself.... these 3 new scents are probably the best yet! Im so proud of our team for all their hard work on the success of this collection. Have you smelled Sprig yet?! I swear it smells like walking into a florist's shop!!!
OUR FIRST TEAM EVENT TO CELEBRATE SPRING
Heather, our Operations Manager and in-house gardening extraordinaire and I guided the team in a Spring-Grow event at the end of March. We started the event in a group journalling session where I asked 3 questions to encourage personal growth. From there Heather lead us in a beautiful session of indoor planting where we each were gifted an orchid (a nod to our new Spring scent "BLOOM") to use.
We also came together to create a welcoming front door planter for our new showroom with the help of our retailer, Garden Works.
