La Luxe Lucerna

Grace, the founder and maker behind La Luxe Lucerna, has been making candles since elementary school. She grew up and as many do, felt pressure to do "something" with her life. She forgot her passion for creating, and followed what seemed like the "right path". Luckily, she found her passion again and La Luxe Lucerna was born.

Looking for unique favours to provide at their wedding, Grace and Eddy made their own custom candles. The idea caught on, and soon took off. Wanting to provide a cleaner, healthier candle to burn at home, they created their own line.

Drop Dead Candles is a collection of handmade candles and housewares created with weirdos and oddballs in mind. Each item is casted from a found object (usually from a thrift store or vintage item from Etsy ) - so we guarantee you won’t be able to get your hands on candles like these anywhere else. A mould of the found object is created from scratch (a process that involves a lot of swearing and glue gun burns) and then each candle and vessel is hand poured in small batches in Oshawa Ontario under feline supervision. Drop Dead Candles are sure to grab the attention of anyone who happens to pass by them and they also make memorable gifts for the eccentric in your life.

SARA MCINTYRE OF SARA'S SOAPS AND CANDLES

I started soap making about 4 years ago when discovered an interest in using ice cube trays/molds to create hand poured gifts for the holidays. I ended up posting these creations on a local Toronto trading page called Bunz, and my hobby took off from there.  Shortly thereafter, I began making skull candles to trade, as I absolutely loved candles and skulls. I joined my first local handmade market a few months later. Everyone would mentioned how much they loved the skull candles, but would never burn them, so I knew I had to start making a product that clients could enjoy (and burn).  I was always a fan of scented candles, so began researching and testing the best ingredients to make my own line of scented candles. The rest is history! Sara's Soaps and Candles was born, creating 100% soy, hand poured scented candles, and skull candles made using unique dying techniques.
