Coal and Canary was started as a hobby between two best friends who were simply learning a fun new hobby together. Amanda started making candles in her kitchen with her best friend Tom in 2014 as a fun hobby and distraction while she was recovering after suffering a near death experience, an event that ended up changing her life forever.
Because C&C was founded by a woman as well as a member of the LGBTQI2S+* community, Coal and Canary has created both the space and the blueprint for these particular minority groups from the beginning. Coal and Canary strives to invite others into this space and to connect with both customers and other business owners who also identify within these groups, in order to give everyone a seat at the table.
Coal and Canary's mission is to bring happiness and joy into peoples lives while providing an incredible customer experience as well as an extremely high quality, hand poured product.
Coal and Canary loves making candles, but also loves making friends! We are in the business of fun and happen to make deliciously scented candles second.
