Contact Us & Our Story
1999 - Sue G. founded Village Craft and Candle (VCC), primarily with the intent of selling handmade candles via craft shows and home parties, family and friends. It started on the pool table in her basement..
2001 - VCC opens the first retail store in the basement of the variety store in Sebringville (hence the Village part) and launches a website for co-op candle supplies.
2002 - VCC moves to Water Street in St. Marys and expands into selling candle accessories along with candles and supplies.
2003 - VCC moves to 166 Queen Street, the previous home of Timothy Eaton and adds home decor and toys into the expanded space. The website evolves to include on-line shopping and shipping, and VCC exhibits in trade shows in the creative space.
2015 - VCC moves to 158 Queen Street, after a full restoration of the historic building. The 15ft oak Candle Bar is added to offer instructional classes. Warehousing facilities are added.
2021 - VCC acquires new owners and moves to the GTA to continue fulfilling an increasing number of orders for candle making supplies.
2021 - Stone Home Creatives sparks up at 158 Queen Street. The candle bar transforms to a Creativity Centre to add other offerings along with candle making instruction. Drop in, take a scheduled class, or arrange for your own private event. There are now walls of crafts, games, educational toys (and candle making, of course!).
