About Us

We are a supplier of Candles, Candle making materials, Candle accessories  & Candle Giftware, The Norfolk Candle company was originally founded in January 1990 to offer a range of handmade candles and candle accessories, 100% of our wares were then sold through craft fairs, fetes and other such organised events, such as the Royal Norfolk Show. Today as we move towards 2018 , we are owned and operated by Pastimes Ltd trading mainly as an internet supplier of Pastimes and Hobby materials, including all things candles, with a bespoke candle making service for gift stores and spas etc, but 
In the nineties, the market was without the myriad of candle suppliers and manufacturers we have today, the internet was a new gadget, yet to catch on, and everything was handmade to order, with 90% of candles sold to just a local audiences, mostly at craft fairs and fetes, very few shops carried stock or had access to the huge array of candles and accessories, that are available today.Worldwide the candle industry is now a billion dollar industry.

However, following a decade of far eastern, machine manufactured candles flooding the market, once again handmade, (I am pleased to say) that individually prepared candles are the customers requirements, with the accent on quality again, with traceable origins and a environmentally friendly footprint, candle making has undergone an enormous change and is now one of the most popular and rewarding hobbies worldwide.
There are now hundreds of new candle makers, and with them hundreds of Candle making material  suppliers have popped up, some stay the course , but many disappear after a couple of years, which makes the market difficult for those of us, for which it is not just a passing phase.

Most candle supply companies, have never made a candle or limited to making scented container candles in jars, they do not make moulded or pillar candles, decorate candles or offer a complete supply of candlesticks, accessories or displays.
We offer a complete range of products, more than just wax in a jar, we shall continue to populate this website, with sufficient information, that the user can make more than just a pot of cream wax with fragrance, but can buy or make a candle display worthy of any high street store.
