Meet Our Local Maker "Foggy Island Candle"
Foggy Island Candle Co. is a small-batch, handmade candle company that takes pride in its diverse candle collections. Founded in 2013 by Deanne Squires, a family-run business located in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Foggy Island Candle Co. is dedicated to using only the highest quality materials and ingredients to provide customers with the best possible product.
Despite its humble beginnings as a kitchen table side-line, Foggy Island Candle Co. has grown into an established business that produces and ships thousands of candles every month. The company's candles can be found in retailers across Canada and the United States.
Foggy Island Candle Co. uses only 100% soy wax and every single candle is still handmade from start to finish. The fragrances created by the company are reminiscent of nostalgic and recognizable scents that provide comfort and familiarity.
The excellence of Foggy Island Candles has not gone unnoticed, having been featured in Canadian Living Magazine, Business Insider, Downhome Magazine, and other prominent publications. In addition, the company was named "Best New Product for 2014" by the Department of Innovation, Business and Rural Development at the NL Wholesale Show.
