Welcome, to the candle resource & information site of Pastimes Ltd, its almost 2018 as we enter our tenth year of online selling and 28th year of trading as the the Norfolk Candle Company, we have started this year by changing the business from sole trader to a limited company status (Pastimes Ltd ) so we can increase our scope of supply to include many other crafts, which are in a way related to candle making, such as glass painting of your candle holders or mosaic on your candle plates etc, this we hope will further develop your choice and enhances your candle making experience.

This website is designed to provide a helpful resource for candle making, by including guides, some history on the ancient art of candle making, unpublished aspects of candle making, their use and much more, we do hope you find this site of value and interest, if you have any queries or notice an error please drop us a line to let us know. If you wish to visit our web store we have placed links on each page of this website, which will take you to the Pastimes Ltd Web store

It goes without saying, without visitors, we could not continue, so we would like to thank our many visitors and customers over the years, our success we believe, is down years of learning our craft, having made thousands of candles for both direct sale or bespoke resale, this experience gives us an unprecedented knowledge of our trade, and allows us to pass some of our knowledge on.

Having made and supplied many candles for high profile buyers, including such places as the Downton Abbey Gift Shop, Buckingham Palace, it reinforces our position in the candle making industry, along with helping thousands of people into the candle making hobby, we are well known as a serious and established candle company known for actively promoting the art of candle making. 
Our online store, is linked to most pages of this website, not always the cheapest supplier out there, we are confident in the knowledge that our experience far surpasses that of most online craft & candle making supplies sites, unfortunately the internet has given rise to many sellers, portrayed as experts, cashing in on the popularity of home candle making, who often cannot offer the support beginners need, fortunately many of these outlets are quite often no more after a couple of years.
If you cannot find what you want on this site, or have a favourite candle or fragrance, that is not listed, please contact us and we shall see if we can help you. For those just embarking on their venture into candle making, the site includes tips and information of "How To" , information on "What not to do" and hopefully giving an insight into answering those many questions on how to make your first candle and wish you luck.

During the course of the year we get hundreds of phone calls seeking assistance and thousands of emails, so please be patient if contacting us, if you cannot reach us first time, we normally respond to emails, so this always would be the best way to contact us.
