InstaLove: Red Sky by Kerry Lee Candles

Candle scents available at Model Citizens 
Hello and Happy Tuesday MC babes! It has been a hot minute since our last blog post, sorry about that. We have been real busy with sales, shopping parties, shipments (try saying that five times fast) and getting the store ready for the fast-approaching holiday season. One of things we have done to get ready for Christmas at MC is introduce our Gift Boutique- a curated collection of Canadian-made products that make lovely gifts for yourself and the people you love. Red Sky by Kerry Lee candles is one such product.

Cedar Rose candles created for Present Day Gifts
These soy candles are handmade in Toronto, Ontario which is where Kerry lives with her wife, Jen, and their dog, Prince Buster. Kerry owns a super cool boutique in Toronto called The Future of Frances Watson and never planned on a career making candles-it happened as all the best things in life do, by accident. Kerry's wife Jen gave her a D.I.Y. candle kit as a "filler" gift (her words not mine) for Christmas a few years ago and that's what sparked her passion for creating them.

While it's not currently her full-time job, Kerry does want to eventually get a bigger space outside of the city so that she can create candles, and other products, under the Red Sky brand full-time.

  According to Kerry, working with individuals and stores to create custom candles (scents and packaging) is one of the coolest parts of her job.

If you're in Toronto you can find Kerry's candles in Likely General, Easy Tiger Goods, The Future of Frances Watson and Token. If you're in St. John's you can find her candles at Model Citizens. If you're anywhere else in the world you can purchase Red Sky by Kerry Lee candles through our online store. If you would like to inquire about a custom order you can send Kerry an email at kerryleebutt@gmail.com), and you can follow her on Instageam here.

Have a great day everyone!
