Support Northern Flicker
Northern Flicker was a tiny little idea that sparked into my head in the summer of 2014. After endless hours of research on candle making, small business and trial and error, it turned into a passion. I was making candles for anyone and everyone who wanted one. Soon the gifts became too much to keep up with, and with the encouragement of some friends and family, I started selling them in a local coffeehouse (which I still currently work as a barista). Shortly after that I created a website and started an online store. I became a certified business in Ontario by early 2015. We have gradually expanded and are now in brick & mortar stores across Canada! It's unbelievable that I have made it this far and I could not have done it without the love and support of my friends, family and customers. I have made so many new friends out of customers, stockists and the candle maker community. Northern Flicker has made me whole, I can't imagine my life without candle making now. Seeing the look on people's faces when they twist that lid off for the first time, take a sniff, and fall in love with that scent. Whether it takes them back to a time they cherish, or reminds them of someone they love. It brings pure joy to my heart to know that I've given someone the gift of nostalgia and that I have helped them bring more comfort and joy into their home with my candles while remaining a clean, sustainable and safe environment.
As some of you may know, owning a small business is hard. Sometimes you get lucky and can manage to score a small business loan from either a bank or trusted family member. I started this business, and continue to grow this business, with the money in my pocket. Almost every single dime that comes in from my fantastic customers goes straight back into the business. I want nothing more to see Northern Flicker flourish and grow and continue to be one of your favourite brands. By donating you are not only making my heart full - you are supporting my family, a small business and stimulating the economy. Local is better!
