This Sunday we will be selling our candles at the Soho Flea Market. Billed as the UK's premier artisan and designer crafts event, it looks set to be a fantastic day of summer festivities. Filled with incredible stalls selling everything from fashion to furniture mixed together with an amazing array of London's best street food and a great line up of music all thrown in for good measure.
Alongside our very own range of luxury scented candles will be casual wear from Plane Clothing, jewellery from Storm in a Teacup, bags from Beara Beara, ceramics from Jimbobart, homeware from Victoria Eggs, vintage inspired fashion from Teastained Lil and a whole lot more. The full line up can be seen on the event website here and you may very well pick up the perfect Father's Day present ahead of the mad rush.
The Meringue Girls, Hix's Fish Dog, Pizza Pilgrims and the Pit Stop Cafe will be amongst those whetting your appetites with their delicious selections of street food to keep you energised throughout the day.
Supported by The Groucho Club, Soho House group, Dean Street Studios and Quo Vadis amongst others, it will certainly be a day to remember. Last year more than 15,000 people attended, doubling the number from its inaugural year in 2012. All the action starts at 11am and goes on until 7pm, ensuring that there is plenty of time to get round all the stalls and really get stuck in.
Come and find us if you're in the area, we'll be outside Black's Club on Dean Street with an exciting new look stand to show off! The nearest tube stations are Leicester Square and Tottenham Court Road.
We were delighted to be asked to attend the Belgravia Wedding Fair hosted by The Halkin hotel, part of the prestigious COMO group on Saturday 5th April. Boasting a Michelin starred restaurant, The Halkin is one of Belgravia's best hotels constantly described by loyal regulars as a home away from home. The Belgravia Wedding Fair was a chance for Wick & Tallow to showcase our unique tailored candle service to wedding organisers and brides-to-be looking to add another dimension to the Big Day, alongside our existing range of candles. Set within the confines of what has become known as the Wedding Capital of London, The Halkin is surrounded by some of London's finest boutique services that can cater for all aspects of the most incredible weddings wherever they may be in the world.
This exacting and specialist fair brought together the likes of A La Carte cosmetics, John Nassari wedding photography, as well as wedding dress designers, event planners, honey moon organisers, flower suppliers and everything else you can think of to take the hassle out of your wedding day and make it the most special it could possibly be. All of this coupled with flowing champagne and stunning rooftop views of London combined to make it a hugely successful event with which to announce our entry into the wonderful world of weddings!
We are extremely pleased to announce that from today, Wick & Tallow’s entire range of luxury scented candles are available to buy from one of our favourite shops, The shop at Bluebird, on London’s iconic King’s Road.
The shop at Bluebird, a favourite with celebrities and trend setters such as David and Victoria Beckham and Tinie Tempah is well known for stocking pioneering and exciting labels with a particular focus on high end design and fashion. Wick & Tallow’s luxury scented candles fit in perfectly with The shop at Bluebird’s design philosophy and as an emerging British brand.
James Malcolm Green, cofounder of Wick & Tallow, commented, “this is a phenomenal opportunity for us and we’re tremendously excited that our candles are now stocked in one of London’s greatest design outlets in the heart of Chelsea”.
For anyone passing The shop at Bluebird we would definitely urge you to go and have a browse. They offer a brilliant selection of products and you will have absolutely no problem kick starting your Christmas shopping. Plus you can grab a coffee or lunch at the same time making the whole experience extremely civilised. You might even pick up a candle or two at the same time!
It's been a busy couple of days since we were asked to take part in PopUp Piccadilly, however, our store is now all set up and looking great! We have had an amazing day working with some incredible people who have been helping out with visual merchandising, bringing a wealth of experience from the retail world including department stores such as John Lewis and Selfridges. It's an eye catching set up, particularly when you see it in the flesh surrounded by all the other wares being sold by the companies we're sharing the space with. There's a great mix of products carefully selected by the PopUp Britain organisers, which together make for a fantastic shop to help you with your Christmas shopping!
The doors open tomorrow (Thursday) from 10am and we will be trading daily (including the weekend) until the end of opening hours on Wednesday 13th November. If you haven't had the opportunity to come and see our candles and experience the scents yet then this is it!
We very much look forward to seeing you there and hope you'll leave with some great Christmas presents!
