My name is Sharon. I am a lifelong Hospitality Sales professional turned Candleologist. I was inspired to flex my entrepreneurial muscle while in the throes of a Covid induced furlough. Sipping champagne and spreading light to people I care about have always been big parts of my life. So it felt natural to turn my candle making hobby into a business. That is how the Candle Bar by Miss Fizzwick was born.
Since March (otherwise known as "when Covid hit") I have been upcycling champagne bottles into yummy candles that offer the therapeutic benefits of essential oils with ZERO chemicals. I do that because celebrating life without harmful toxins is super important to me, and so are YOU! I also create mason jar candles, room sprays, and gift sets. I collect bottles from a local restaurant, cut them, and then fill them with 100% Soy Wax and all natural essential oils. On the weekends I bring my goodies to the local farmer's markets. Some fun projects I have done include baby shower party favors, Bridesmaid proposal, and a custom label "cheer-up" gift for an office going through tough transitions.
There are 2 questions I get asked pretty frequently when I am out in my community. The first one is, " Do you empty all of these bottles yourself?" Back in the very beginning I had a collection of pretty champagne bottles. If you purchased from me or received a Veuve Clicquot or Perrier Jouet candle when I first began, chances are good it came from my own collection of bottles. They are so special because each one represents a special celebration. These days I am making so many special, clean, upcycled candles, I just can't empty the. bottles on my own. I have an amazing partnership with my favorite restaurant on Highway 30A in Blue Mountain Beach. If you are ever in the area be sure to visit Blue Mable Smokehouse & Provisions for any meal - but especially bottomless mimosa brunch on Sunday! I will follow along shortly after picking up cases of empty bottles and turning them into something lovely for you.
The second most frequently asked question is, "How do you cut the bottles!?" There are lots of Youtube videos out there on how to do this and I have watched them all! Since I am cutting lots of bottles I have invested in a wet tile saw. I use it to cut bottles of all shapes and sizes and then hand sand each one before cleaning it and filling it with all natural soy wax and essential oils for you!
