Etsy Wax Wishes

I lurked about Etsy recently and pulled up a few vendors that looked cool. Plus I rediscovered some that I had been told about before. 

Copper and Kraft Candle is a place I have loaded up a cart before but never checked out. They have tons of great scents, great feedback and nice bundles. Their branding really appeals to me as well. 
Clamshells run $3.95 with a few on sale for much cheaper.

Prairie Antiques has hands down, the coolest shapes and molds and primitive look. Shapes include cabins, trees, santas, bats, moons, owls, and so much more. I want to buy them all and create little scenes for each holiday. They are a bit pricey but the craftsmanship is evident. This cat is 4.7 ounces and costs $8.50. It can be purchased in any scent from her extensive list. She has tons of great feedback. 

From the Page carries bookish wax. And you all know how I adore bookish wax. Clamshells start at $5 each or you can get bundles. Fandoms represented include: Sherlock, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Fault in Our Stars, Immortal Instruments, Narnia, Game of Thrones and more. Excellent feedback as well with many sales. 

Simply Pure Scents focuses on all natural and pure ingredients. I am drawn to the herbs and oils and flowers used in her tarts. A caveat about only using essential oils versus fragrance oils will be throw and longevity. But if essential oils are your jam (and I have MANY friends that are heavily into essential oils) then these tarts will be for you. One clamshell runs $4.75

Everything Dawn creates really cool realistic wax tarts. I mean... look at that popcorn?! The prices are a tad high, but you are paying for the time it takes to do such intricate shapes. Her chocolate chip cookies look fresh out of the oven. A box of kettle corn like this runs $13.95 for 8 ounces.

Wood & Wax Co. has an absolutely beautiful branding design and interesting scent blends. These wax sets contain 4 half ounce cubes for $5.50. Way steep but I would probably still try one or two just for kicks.

Lindsay Lucas Candles hails from the UK and they have really cute wax tarts. This is one of their bundles that includes a warmer for about $25. They have various wax shapes and scents with reasonable prices. I am not sure about shipping though.

Smell Goods is a vendor I follow on IG. Their glitter comets always make me smile. A clamshells is $3.25 and they sell scallops and other shapes as well. Their store has lots of stock and scents as well as good reviews.

Rustik Country Krafts is a vendor I have tried thanks to Lynda. Their Nag Champa is top notch! The best part?! Their value!! 24 wax tarts run $8. These tarts are about half an ounce each. They also sell clamshells and even single one ounce scallops for $1.18. I keep meaning to order more Nag Champa but forget. I know where I am ordering next month. 

Have you tried any of these Etsy vendors? Which one looks the most appealing to you? Which one do you want me to order from to review the most?


  1. Wood & Wax Co has always caught my eye, too, and Copper and Kettle has been featured in Flicker Box! They have had some great products. Great wish list! I love that little figure from Prairie Antiques!!

    1. Good to know about Copper and Kettle! I think I am going to try the Primitive and Bookish ones next. :-) then maybe wood and wax.

  2. What an interesting set of Etsy vendors, I definitely want to try some of the smaller vendors when I can buy again. From The Page is so up my alley! Thanks for the recs!

    1. Me too! I am itching to branch out. The bookish one totally draws me in! Have a great rest of weekend.

  3. Girl, you KNOW what I want! Payday cannot get here soon enough! Prairie Antiques here I come!

    1. KITTEH!!!!! I don't know how I am going to melt that cat. Why do I do this to myself. Ugly tarts would make my life so much easier. Can't wait to see what you get!!!
