Candlelight celebrates 50 years with re-launch of iconic product
Candlelight is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year with the re -launch of its original Vintage Amber Storage range.
“Our original amber range was launched in 1979, proving to be exceptionally successful, for many decades. We have chosen to re-launch this to commemorate our 50th Anniversary, perfect for the vintage, amber trend about to explode,” comments Kate Winch, daughter of founder Mike. “This retro range of Amber Storage coming full circle and back full of life in 2022, just as fresh as it was in the 1980s.”
Candlelight says the range was one of the most successful stylish commodity storage ranges of the 80s and 90s, available from distributors around the world, most prevalent in Germany, USA, Scandinavia and UK retailers. Early indications confirm the re-launch to the market is selling out of the stores at an astounding rate.
Based in Aldwarke, South Yorkshire, Candlelight was born out of the 1972 miners’ strike, when founder and owner Mike Winch had the enterprising idea of selling homemade decorated candles to local independent stores, out of a farm building.
Since then, the family owned and run company evolved into a market leading designer and wholesale supplier of design-led giftware, florals, fragrance and home accessories to the retail market.
“As we celebrate this milestone, we can’t wait to find out what the next 50 years will bring. We are both proud and privileged to be able to celebrate this golden anniversary with the re-launch of this range,” says Mike.
