We had a pretty busy Small Business Saturday at Wick & Tallow! The BBC popped in to interview us about the business a couple of days before, and then Sky News dropped in on Small Business Saturday to find out our views on the initiative. Have a look at the great videos below!
Saturday 27th September sees Wick & Tallow featured in the Small Biz 100, one of a hundred businesses featured by the Small Business Saturday campaign.
As part of the campaign Alice and Tom met Oliver Proudlock from Channel 4's Made In Chelsea and owner of British fashion and accessories label Serge DeNimes to discuss how they started Britain's brightest new home fragrance brand, what sets them apart and how they'll be championing the Small Business Saturday campaign on Saturday 6th December 2014.
To celebrate our involvement in Small Business Saturday, Wick & Tallow is offering free shipping within the UK from all orders placed online using its 2-3 Working Days (Signed For) service. You can shop the range of candles here.
It's a big week for London, and an even bigger one for Wick & Tallow. Fresh off the back of London Fashion Week, we move seamlessly into the London Design Festival where Wick & Tallow has arrived with a bang, exploring both how we might interact with fragrance in years to come whilst also showcasing our Bold Collection in a more traditional manner as well. Below we explain what we're up to and where you can find us!

At Wick & Tallow we're not just about candles, although obviously they are a large part of what we do. We like most things scent, candle and wax related and have a Pinterest board for just that purpose. On our Musings in Wax board you will find an array of wax or candle based delights there that we want to share with the world because we think they're rather wonderful, creative and inspiring. The pictures below give you a quick edit of the kind of things you can find in our collection and all link directly to our Pinterest account so you easily follow us to keep up with what we like. Enjoy!
