What was once a craft hobby, is now a hand-crafted and thriving business.

Marc Gaskins, an avid fisherman and ecommerce entrepreneur, starting hand-pouring candles in Charleston, South Carolina as a side hobby. Between scouring the beach for shark teeth with his trust pup Bear and enjoy Charleston’s craft beer scene, Gaskin grew his hobby and Meeting & Market Candles was born.

Meeting & Market Candles—named after a well-known intersection in Charleston—is still hand-poured, cotton-wicked, labelled and polished by Gaskin and his Charleston team (including Bear, of course).

Our mission is to make top notch, strong and enjoyable candles in fascinating scents for you to explore and enjoy.
