The story behind Chasing Quinn...
Hello friends! I'm Kelly, the creator and owner of Chasing Quinn. I live in upstate New York with my husband Jim, and five children.
This small business was born seven years ago. I had left my career in corporate banking to stay at home and raise my newborn daughter Quinn, which was such a blessing, however I needed a creative outlet, a way to de-stress and express myself.
So I started making jewelry, home decor items, helping friends and family decorate their homes, and soon fell in love with making candles. Eventually I realized I could make an actual business out of it all, and Chasing Quinn was born!
I started selling at markets, special events, pop-up shops, and seasonal storefronts. Business grew quickly, and we opened a downtown brick and mortar shop, featuring modern farmhouse goods, local artisan's handmade items, and our handmade soy candles.
We closed the brick and mortar in March of 2019, to slow down our hectic lifestyle a bit, and are focusing solely on our online candle and decor business (although I still love decorating homes!).
I am now a stay at home mom and candle maker. My three year old daughter Remi is my right hand gal, and spends a lot of time assisting me in the workshop! This small business has always been a family affair and passion project of mine, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to share my passion with you!
About Our Candles
All of our candles are hand poured in small batches and packaged with love (by me!) in my home-based workshop in Upstate New York. I take great pride in creating natural, safe candles, with healthy, environmentally safe ingredients.
Every Chasing Quinn candle is made with soy wax from natural, U.S. grown soy beans, and a hand-picked blend of non-toxic, fine fragrance oils and essential oils. We use natural cotton wicks, which provide a clean, long-lasting, even burn. Our candles are also dye-free, which means you will receive a neutral white/ivory colored candle, to go with any decor!
