Saltbox Primitives was started in 2001. I had started in my basement just playing around with wax and scents. My husband took the candles, loaded them in the truck and told me to go out to some gift shops and see if they would be interested in purchasing them. He told me not to come home until I sold something, I knew he wasn't serious, so I set out on that very cold January day...and my first couple of stops, the shops had already met their budget amount for candle purchases. By this point I was very cold, tired and somewhat frustrated. I called home and asked my husband if I could give up and come home, he said "did you sell any candles yet?" I told him "no", so he said I had to keep trying, not to give up. The next shop I pulled into was Family Creations, in Intercourse, PA. I parked the truck and prayed..."Father God, this is your candle business, if you want it, I need a sale or I'm going home, you Father God do with it what you want." I went into the store, met with the owners and showed them my product, right there on the spot those ladies purchased $1,000.00 worth of candles. I left there and went to another shop, Country Haus in East Petersburg, PA. and they purchased $250.00 worth of candles, and that my friends is how Saltbox Primitives was born.
Every candle is hand made 100% right down to the individual labels. Every label has a Bible verse printed on it. The scripture changes with what the Lord leads me to put on it.
My prayer is that everyone thoroughly enjoys the candles that I pour and the Lord designs.
