Nice to Meet You

Redesigned Atlanta Showroom, January 2012

Welcome to 1909 & Meeting, the new Colonial Candle blog. First things first, I’m sure you are already wondering, “Why 1909 & Meeting?”

Our blog name brings together the past and the present, representing the rich history of Colonial Candle paired with the fresh, modern look of where we are today.

“1909” is the year that Colonial Candle was founded in Cape Cod, Massachusetts by Mabel Baker. “Meeting” is a reference to Meeting Street, a well-known street in the center of Charleston, South Carolina, the city we call home today. When you put the two together, you get the spirit of our new blog, “1909 & Meeting.” We will feature the latest Colonial Candle updates, behind-the-scenes footage, and exclusive content that will enhance your Colonial Candle experience.

As for the Colonial Team, we’ve been hard at work these past few months. Our showrooms in Atlanta, Dallas & Las Vegas were redesigned by famed interior designer, Jim Weinberg, and we unveiled a new look with emphasis on our signature oval shape to our fabulous retailers at the winter market shows.  We can’t wait for our new products, fragrances and collections to debut throughout the year!

 Follow along and get to know us a little better. Also, be sure to check us out on Facebook and Twitter.

Thanks for stopping by and we’ll see you again soon!

    Colonial Candle is very much missed on Cape Cod. I use to visit the store and outlet every weekend during the summer. The people worked there for years. Leaving the Cape Cod hospital at night was a real treat as the candles were being made and the air was filled with wonderful fragrances. I wish you would reopen a store on the Cape again.

    I’ve used your candles for many years, but lately
    have been unable to find your candles in many
    retail stores. Also you seemed to have retired
    many of my favorite scents in votives.
    I’ve been buying Root candles, instead, made here in Ohio.

    Please consider bringing back the “gold, frankincense & myrrh” line. It is my all time favorite and I burned the candles year-round not just during the Christmas holidays.

    The glass shelves just make the candle colors very rich looking. Also, the new label is so classy looking. Just Beautiful and will draw attention in every store that purchases them. Sue
