What did we do?
Our first Candles & Cake event was back in May, after having some time off since Christmas 2017 to have some quality family time, and due to our little George being unwell. This Candles & Cake event was a huge success and we knew if we continued to put in the hard work, we would have a productive year. And we was not wrong!
Our gorgeous product range now includes over 50 handmade and homemade products… and that’s not including our wax melts range! Our personal gift range has expanded recently as we are now official stockists of Shobu Shower Bombs. A perfect addition to the Wishstrings and wax/oil burners.
Our following on social media has increased organically. We now have over 1300 followers on Facebook and 250 followers on Instagram. Our official Facebook shop has now been set up https://bit.ly/2QLspJg which gives you access to purchase a range of our large and mini candles, as well as some products from our gift range. We have also recently joined Pinterest too, pop on and have a browse https://bit.ly/2qNBTs8 and check out our posts, as well as our posts and photographic memories on Instagram https://bit.ly/2zXlMwr. It always makes me smile looking back at old posts and just shows how far our brand has come.
We became the official first team and under 11’s youth team shirt sponsors of the Teversal Football Club which makes us so proud to be able to support our local community. Especially as this year, Teversal Football Club celebrated their 100th anniversary. We were thrilled to be involved in their annual celebrations.
In July we celebrated our first year anniversary and what a special day it was! We had local singer, Laura Stubbs, singing some of the latest and greatest commercial favourites during our Candles & Cake event, with exclusive offers throughout the day. Rainbows Hospice was our chosen charity and we raised an amazing £106 for this wonderful charity. Through games and raffle tickets, plus a small donation from ourselves. At our anniversary event we also introduced our very own TVCC loyalty card for all you wonderful customers. This enables you to get 50% off your 7th candle.
Throughout August, TVCC went on tour by attending various Artisan markets in the local and surrounding areas. It was so nice to meet so many lovely people, including locals and those who was holidaying in the area.
In October we were invited to join Gok Wan at his “One Size Fits All” show in Nottingham. I was always a big fan of Gok when I was studying fashion in college. So not only was meeting Gok and getting my copy of his autobiography signed an amazing opportunity. We got to showcase our wonderful candles at one of his events too! (Pinch me, i’m dreaming).

Whilst we are getting into the Christmas spirit, we are eager to share the love this Christmas. We decided to get involved in the Homeless Christmas Shoebox Appeal to ensure everyone has a gift to open this christmas. You can still get involved by filling a shoebox and dropping it off at our Christmas Candles & Cake event on Saturday 8th December at the Teversal Manor Rooms, NG17 3JN.
As we come to the end of the year, we just wanted to say a massive THANK YOU from all the TVCC team as without you lovely customers and your amazing support, we would not be where we are today, so thank you! We will continue building on our brand. To expand and ensure we keep your homes smelling divine with our homemade and handmade soy wax candles! 2019 watch this space!
