Small packages can blow your mind or scent your house! Shortie’s Candle Company is a women owned and operated small business led by George Vanderville, who had no plans to start a company let alone an International one supplying and working with leading corporations. After creating one of the best candle products on the market She gladly dove in, and discovered a world of excitement, adventure, challenge, and awesomeness. My name is Georgia Vanderville, and I run a candle company. We have a 13-person crew and We service customers across the United States and up in Canada We started with this business by making a gift for my husband. He was my boyfriend at the time I had just met him and I needed to make him something. He was I mean, he needed something. He needed something amazing So I made him a candle and then he loved it and I lived with all my girlfriends and my girlfriend saw me making candles For him and for them for Christmas, so they gave me candle making stuff I didn’t realize that we were going to have a company. I didn’t realize that we would be Supporting our community and supporting the people that work here and the customers. I mean Thousands and thousands of customers. I didn’t realize that we get to be a part of their home I think that this business is the most amazing business ever. You get to take a product, you get to take this raw wax and fragrance, and color, and wicks, and you get to mix it all together in these different little concoctions and it turns into something beautiful That people take home and they burn and every time they walk from room to room. They go Ohhh And they have a friend that comes in and they go Oh your house smells amazing! and then they have the grandma come over and grandma goes. Oh It smells like my gardenia plants that used to be there and they just love it. We pour our candles in positivity and good vibes, in smile and kindness. Right now we are making sure that our wicks stay straight during the pouring process. So we are setting up these wick sticks We’re all set up to go. Let’s pour! Oh The smell of Sandwood Rose is incredible! Our hand operated machinery really streamlines our pouring process. We combine the wax, fragrance and color, and end up with our highly scented candles. Color creates magic. We love to switch it up. We’re pouring Lemon Blueberry Twist, and it smells divine! We let them rest and enjoy their dry time. Once our candles have been double-checked for perfection, We move on to the finishing stage. We trim, cap and label, so they’re ready to be enjoyed. Our careful packaging ensures they arrive at their international destinations safely. This work is incredibly fulfilling. What makes it so fulfilling is that you get to touch people’s lives really. We have this amazing customer up in Idaho and he lost his wife Her name was Jasmine. And so he buys these Jasmine candles from us and he never blows them out. They are going 24/7 Because it reminds him of his wife, and Just these special amazing connections and these wonderful stories that we get to experience through it I love, I love this product.
