Fix8 Media Squarespace Designers Create Commerce Website for Handmade Candles

Soy Candle Company with Mission to Support Women in Need Selects Squarespace for Retail and Wholesale Ecommerce Website

The hand poured, clean burning soy candles are just the beginning… You will fall in love with the delicious scents and cozy packaging around these toxin-free candles—but you’ll swoon over the story behind the company that makes them.

Wax Happening Candle Co. is a socially and environmentally conscious company dedicated to helping women in need around the world. Founder Meg Ulrich’s dream is to bring jobs to women who most won’t hire—and she’s hoping to do that one candle at a time!

Instead of starting an Etsy shop for her beautiful handcrafted candles or building a Shopify store, Ulrich approached Fix8 Media’s Squarespace designers to create a gorgeous and effective Squarespace website. It not only features a shop to sell her candles, but also plenty of opportunity to share her passion for helping other women. Crafted in the Squarespace Margot template, the new commerce website mirrors the aesthetic of the candles themselves: cozy and minimalist, with a distinct homemade vibe. The Squarespace shop is easily sorted into the various candle categories, enabling the visitor to shop all or view only the Signature, Vintage, or Sisterhood collections.

Wax Happening’s new Squarespace website is a wonderful example of how makers of gifts and crafts can build a highly effective shop in Squarespace to sell their goods—and spread their messages of goodwill.

Finding the light,
