My friend Peggy and her husband Gene are very frugal folks. They work hard, but live simply and happily, with great respect for the earth and green-living. Peggy called me the other day to say that a friend of theirs had asked them if they knew anyone who would be interested in a couple dozen used candle containers. Their friend had been buying and using some great high-end (Voluspa mostly) candles – and not throwing the used containers away. She’d amassed about 2 dozen of them and wanted to pass them on. “Sure!” I said, and I soon had two boxes full of great glass and ceramic candle containers of all sizes and shapes. Not only am I going to be able to try out some new container candle sizes, but in recycling these containers, I feel like I’m doing my part to help lessen our impact on the earth. Plus, I’m going to get to give both Peggy and Gene, and their friend, some of my handmade candles, and prove to them that handmade/homemade candles can be every bit as good as those posh high-end types!
