MEET THE MAKER - NATALIE FROM LIGHT MY FIRE MELBOURNE
Meet Natalie from Light my Fire Melbourne
How long has your business been operating? a little over 3 years
What do you make and create? I make candles - soy wax wood wicked babes that are scented with fragrances that are hand blended in my studio
Tell me about the person you are in everyday life? A brunching, coffee drinking, who spends the majority of time at home binging net-flix whilst pouring or cooking for family. Honestly what you see at markets is exactly who I am in everyday life, I am one of the lucky people whose biz life and personal life cross over and it's in the best way possible!
Tell me about why you love to create your products or brand? Pouring candles to me is the ability to create something that makes someone happy, wether it be feel good gifts, or a treat for themselves. That's a little bit of magic and the knowledge that something I made in my home with my two hands can at any point in time be providing that for someone... it makes for a pretty ace feeling!
Tell me about the space you work in to create your products? The spare room at my place is the studio, it's 99% of the time a big old mess of wax and inspirational posters and stock but theres also a really good feel about it, music usually cranked and of course.... it always smells brilliant!
Does your family help or have any input into what you do? While they are my team of sniffers and champions of Light My Fire the biz and making side is all me! I cant imagine someone else pouring my candles
What are your short term goals? We have some new scents coming out super soon - but better yet our followers get to pick what the scent will be!
What are your long term goals? Plenty of markets and hitting some more stores..... then perhaps world domination ;)
Why do you love being a part of the Mermaid Sorority Markets? Okay the name alone makes me happy, it sounds shiny and sparkly and magical lets be honest. When you have a market that brings repeat customers, and where the organisers put in ALL the effort to get people to come and shop, eat, and enjoy themselves that's somewhere I want to be! Also the quality of the other stallholders is second to none.
Thank you so much for your insight to you and your brand, you are one amazing woman!
