The Harvest Moon Bazaar is one of my most favorite shows to do.  The show location is great, the vendors are of high quality, and the women hosting the show are wonderful.  If you enjoy  handmade and vintage products, you will love this bazaar.

We all hope to see you there!

What a Great Way to End 2015!

Pauper’s Candle Company had a terrific show at the Salem Farmer’s Market Holiday Craft Show in Salem, Oregon.  While my husband, son and I were driving to Oregon from Idaho, my husband and I were trying to think how many years Pauper’s Candles had been attending this show.  We concluded that it had to be at least 10 years.  Hard to believe that much time has passed.  I always enjoy seeing those who come each year to purchase their Pauper’s Candle.

This year was especially special because my husband and I had our son with us.  And on top of that, my husband and son played in Tuba Christmas in Portland, Oregon on Saturday.  My parents offered to run my booth while I buzzed to the show to watch them play, and of course it was raining.  Just an aside: My son is just learning to blow the horn, so he watched Dad for fingering and did not blow much.  He did get a little prize for being the youngest player there.  He thought that was pretty cool.  Good memories and thank you Mom and Dad for running Pauper’s booth.

My wonderful husband, Mark

Grandma and Grandpa wanted to spend some time with their grandson on Sunday, so my husband and I ran our booth together.  This was fun.  We have not run our booth together in a long time.  Again, good memories.

After the show we were able to spend some time with my parents and take our son to see the Christmas lights in Corvallis that are now at the local Fairgrounds.  While I was growing up the Christmas lights were around the local Pepsi building.  Our son enjoyed seeing all the lights and live Nativity.  Once again, good memories

Our Christmas Cabin Soy Candle is a spectacular scent!

The Salem Holiday Show is always Pauper’s last for the year and this year it was a great way to end our show season for 2015.  This year has been a great year for shows and making memories.

Thank you to all our customers for a great year!  Merry Christmas and we wish you a Blessed New Year.

On Saturday May 2, 2015 from 10-4pm, Pauper’s Candles will be a vendor at Oregon State Universities Mom’s Weekend Art Festival.  OSU is located in Corvallis, Oregon.  We have attended this show for many years and enjoy it every year.  This show is very organized and full of a quality art and crafts.  All items are made by the vendors, so it is nice know that what you purchase is made by the person you are purchasing it from.

We will be selling our Scented Container Soy Wax Candles, Air Fresheners, Hand-Made Rustic Signs, and Wick Dippers.

I grew up in Corvallis, so doing this show is literally like going home.  This time of year in Corvallis is beautiful and I think the weather should hold and not rain.   We have endured many rainy days during this show.  But the thing about Oregonians is that the rain does not stop them from coming out and enjoying the festivities.  My husband and I lived on the Oregon coast for five years and if we would have waited for the rain to stop to do something we would not have done very much during the time we lived there.

My mom and dad help me with this show, since they still live in the area.  It is so much fun to be with my parents and be able to stay with them.  My parents are now in their 70’s and still help me set up and sell candles.  They are awesome.

The Memorial Union Program Council puts together the whole weekend of events, activities, programs and more for the students and their mothers.  The campus is all bustling and it is a fun event.  If you are in the area, you can stop by the art show, it is open for anyone.  Remember, you can always shop online for our candles too, www.pauperscandles.com
