Ted’s Candles

Standard

Since the late 1970’s we have had the privilege of stocking candles made relatively locally to us in Alston, by our friend and one of the finest candle makers ever, Ted Thompson. Apart from keeping small shops such as ours stocked, Ted has supplied candles to some more high-profile clients. His candle lit the celebrations on Glastonbury Tor on Millenium night, they have featured in Harry Potter films and they light parts of the famous Globe Theatre.

These are his hand dipped pairs which can be obtained in many gorgeous colours (he also supplies us with a fine range of beeswax candles). The colour runs right through each of his coloured candles. This lovely product looks great and burns beautifully too. The retail price for a pair is £2.80 and they are available on our website.

 

About Beryl Maughan Hankin

I'm Beryl the proprietor and scribe of Guru Boutique. Guru is an independent, fair trade business established almost five decades ago and located in Darlington, UK. I work there with my best friends Tony and Colin. In addition to my other duties, I manage social media for the shop and for myself. Growing up back in the 1940s I never could have imagined such a thing as the internet, let alone social media. However, here I am over seventy-five years later being able to communicate with the world via such things. To quote Jerry Garcia of The Grateful Dead, "What a long strange trip this has been" - and it's not over yet! (Guru Boutique's logo is based on a Mayan harvest deity and my personal profile logo is by Mr Derek Hargreaves).
