Hi! I’m Marie and that’s my handsome husband Joe standing next to me… We are fortunate enough to get to do what we LOVE …travel the country together, having fun, exploring, laughing, working and playing. You will find us in small towns and large cities, selling our made with love, soy candles at art shows, vintage markets, and street fairs.
We do as much of that as we possibly can right from our truck and tent (the one we sell our candles from, and the one we sleep in- and no, they are NOT the same). But when we’re home, we’re home. Usually spending time with family & friends, or working on another DIY projects around the house, making our home a home.
Our intention with our blog is not to be out of this world amazing (though that is an awesome thought!) but rather we hope it’s a place to teach, inspire, encourage, and empower. We both have a background in coaching, Joe with everything sports and little league, and me with lifestyle. So as you can imagine, we both love to inspire and more importantly, be inspired.
We are deeply connected to each other and our way of life; we know how to live in a way that is both gratifying and purposeful for us; we are FREE SPIRIT JUNKIES all the way! And we’re always on the lookout for kindred spirits, so WELCOME to our, happy place!
Be sure to join our mailing list to stay up-to-date on our happenings and travels Beckley’s Handmade Soy Candles
Our blog FREE SPIRIT JUNKIES will be both personal and business because we believe the two do go together. (That is exactly what we’re doing, after all; it’s our life.)
So a bit about our soy candles…
Soy is a cleaner burning option than paraffin. We use high quality soy wax that is not derived from oil refining; it comes from a natural grown product, the soybean. Which also happens to be a renewable resource grown right here in the Midwest by our American farmers.
Our candles have an excellent scent throw (both hot and cold) and clean up easily with a little soap and water. We don’t add dyes or colors…NO additives! EVER. Our wicks are completely lead-free.
We design our own labels and we can customized those for your store. We make each candle with you, our loyal customer in mind, one at a time. It is YOU after all, that is the very core of our business!
So thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Joe & Marie
