Meet the Maker is a new series of features highlighting some of the most amazing makers across the North Shore! We will be featuring a handful of new makers every Monday to hopefully help mitigate the added financial strain that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the creative community. Follow along on Instagram and Facebook as well!
Meet Christina Wilcox of Rockport Candle Company!
Describe the things you make/create.
I create candles inspired by the sea and life in a small New England town. Our retail shop is on Bearskin Neck in Rockport. We hand pour our candles in our open-to-the-public candle studio in downtown Rockport, where we also host pour-your-own candle events!
What inspires you?
I am inspired by the sea and life in our little New England town.
How much will the COVID-19 pandemic affect your business financially this month?
Not sure… perhaps $5K
What measures are you taking to reduce lost revenue?
Promoting more online sales since my two retail locations have to be closed, and my wholesale accounts are not ordering.
Our Sea Lavender candle fragrance is infused with several essential oils – we think you’ll find it clean and fresh with an excellent fragrance throw. The best scent for feeling calm and relaxed!
