Starla's Candle Making

It is with much regret that I tell you, both Mr. and Mrs. Glassburn have passed away and their store is no longer open.  Their shop was one of the last great roadside stores from the 1950's.  They survived large retail chains such as Walmart, KMart, and the internet. They were much loved and will be much missed. 
I like finding places that will help you sell, make, or package your products and allow you to make money.  So with that in mind, I think it is about time we tell you about Glassburn's Pottery and Gifts in Chillicothe, Ohio.

I remember going there when I was a very small child with my parents.  My parents owned a truck stop and gift shop.  They went to Glassburns on a regular basis to stock their gift shop shelves. 

So it was a natural thing for me to go there when I started making candles.  They have a wide variety of pottery for pouring candles in.  If you are close, I would suggest you take the time to ride on over and visit.  You can call first and see if there is something in particular you want.

After a visit to Glassburns, it is about 20 minutes more to Lisa's shop.

I've taken the time to grab a few photos of Glassburns today.  See if there is anything you like.

No, they didn't pay me to say this or put their information on my site.  I just like them and wanted to do it.  They have been there over 50 years (way before I was born...lol) My parents always said they were honest, hardworking people. 

No, they don't ship and they don't have a computer in their shop.  They have no interest in computers or shipping.  If you want to buy their pottery or glass, you will have to drive.

Glassburns Candle Containers
They have a ton more good junk, as I call it.  Mostly for gift shops, truck stops, flea markets, flower shops and the like.  A good candle maker will find a lot to work with here.  I use the red clay pottery bottoms to make our apple pies in.  Just give a good coat of sealer and you are good make your candle pie.

Here are some photos of other things they have.  You will feel like you have stepped back in time, when you enter the shop.  Well, you will see what I mean when you get there.

I love, Love, LOVE the idea of a candle in the Sugar Jar.  It is so primitive, you can do a hundred looks - layer of wax, layer of crumbles............I just love these.
The customer can smell the candle aroma through the holes in the top, so they won't tear your packaging trying to smell the candle.
They are retro, vintage country with a primitive flare. 
They are safe enough for dishwasher heat and will hold a burning candle as the glass is thick.
Just think how cute they would be in a kitchen with a cinnamon bun scented candle.
Different candle colors and looks will only enhance the look!
Cost 1.99 each!  That is a really good price for a candle container.
Remember, when it comes to packaging .... you need to use your imagination.  A little round label on the bottom using the Avery program and you are ready for a craft show.
