The Lilley Pad Candles and Soaps

What's Happening! 

A few things that have been going on at
The Lilley Pad Candles and Soaps


January 2010:

Check out my on-line store at

I thought this would be the easiest
way to set up a shopping cart, as
well as keep what I have available
current.  :-)

I will be adding more product to this
store as it becomes available, however,
if you would like something special made up,
e-mail me and I'll turn on the pot. 

Next up are some Valentine's goodies:
votives, tealights, snaps, soaps in
Red Hot Cinnamon and something


Another successful Craft season
has come and gone and I am already
looking forward to hitting the craft
trail again.

I wish to thank everyone for your support
and look forward to seeing you in 2010.

Some new things planned for this year:

New packaging for tart/snaps.

More container/jar/tin candles in
palm or soy.

My craft table is going to get a
complete display overall.  :-)

December 4, 2008

I have been working on an inventory list of what candle stock is on hand.  Fortunately for me, I don't have a lot of stock left for the year end but perhaps not as good news for you, my customer.  :-)

Seasonal candle products as of December 4, 2008

Regular candle products as of December 4, 2008

Please e-mail me or call 902-543-2909 if you are interested in any of the above.

Thank you all for the wonderful support this year.  The new palm votives, melts, tealights and pillars sold exceedingly well. 

October 2008
Well, I have some really exciting news for all my candle loving people.
I am now making palm wax candles.  This a 100% natural wax (until I add the scent and colour) and performs like a soy candle.  The candles when cooled have a starburst effect.  You must see them to believe it. 

Note:  Although I will still carry a small supply
of paraffin wax supplies, I will be concentrating
 on making soy or palm wax products.

August 2008

I had a chance to inventory my Fall and Christmas
products as well as the scents on hand and
the ones I will be reordering this year.
Check out the Excel Spreadsheet. 


My candles and lotions are now available at Chris' Convenience Store in Mahone Bay.  We will be adding more stock in the near future.  Stop in and see what Debbie has.  :-)

Also this summer my products are available in Lunenburg at Admiral Benbow's and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, and my soaps are at The Teazer in Mahone Bay.

2007 Fall and Christmas Craft Shows
Another season of successful craft shows over.  Phew!!

December 2007

Check out new lower prices of body butters and
pampered pet paw balm

September 2007

Believe it or not, it is time to start thinking about making up my Christmas products.  Where did the summer go!!

I will be ordering my Christmas and Fall scents soon, so if anyone has specific scents they would like to order, please let me know asap and I'll see if I can get them for you.

Here are the scents I will possibly
be ordering this year plus more.

NOTICE:  As most of my fragrance oils come from the US, I should explain that due to new USPS mailing restrictions, Canadian customers will not be able to have fragrance oils shipped via USPS Air if the flashpoint (the degree that a fragrance can explode) is below 200 degrees F.  These oils will have to be shipped via UPS or Fed Ex ground, and will be subject to brokerage and duty fees. 

I will be ordering some of these fragrances to be shipped via USP Ground as they are a MUST and my best sellers, but I will be limiting the number to a minimum.  They are thousands of scents available with fp's over the 200 so am going to concentrate on them. 

I do order some of my oils from Canadian suppliers but have found that the costs are sometimes very high in comparison to the ones from the states and are the same quality or better.

I'm also looking forward to doing some new fundraising projects this fall.   Contact me if you might be interested.

July 2007
The CPE Nationals (Canine Professional Events), an International Dog Show will be held at the Bridgewater Exhibition Grounds from
July 6 to July 8, 2007.
We will be there and have a 10 x 20 tent set up so if you love dogs, please check out this event and visit us as well.  :-)
This is the first time the show has been held
outside the US.


I will be at the Lunenburg Craft Festival from July 14 to July 16 at Arena. 

June 2007

From June 1-3 Kelly and I will be attending the Berwick Blossom Market in Berwick, which has moved from the Kentville Arena to the Berwick Arena

May, 2007

Attended the Tulip Festival in Truro
from May 18 - 20, 2007.  Unfortunately the weather didn't cooperate with the festival events which affected the attendance at the craft show...but I had fun and that's what really counts.

March 2007
I have added body butters to my product line.  Check them out at

February 2007
I would like to thank all my wholesale and retail customers for a fantastic 2006.  Without your support, my business would not be expanding at the rate it is.

Here's hoping 2007 is even better.
Thank you again.

January 2007 - Ok, just did a count of what I made up last year and the figures are astounding.
Can't believe it.
Over 8500 soy and wax votives,
1000 tarts, 1500 tealights,
2000 bars of soaps and more.

November - 2006 Well, I just have to pat myself on the back a bit again.

The Dynamite Twirlers of Halifax are selling
my wax votives as a fundraiser for their organization.
In the past month, they have sold over 700
and I have orders for 400 more.
If anyone is interested in supporting
this group, you can
e-mail Jill Schwartz and
she would be delighted to help you.  :-)

I have been contacted by another group this week
to make up 500 votives for their fundraising.


My votives seem to be replacing some of the chocolate bar
fund raisers in the area with my votives.  If anyone else is interested, particularly in Nova Scotia, please
e-mail me
and I'm sure we can work something out.
Check out my fundraising page


November 2006 So far this year I have made over 8,000 soy and wax votives and counting. (Nov.06)

The Craft Shows are over for the year
and it was a phenomenal year - thank you all.
Please drop in if you are in the neighbourhood! 

January 2006 I was asked to provide samples of my soaps
to the 1200 delegates attending the
2006 Juno Awards in
Halifax held in April.  :-)

A big step for me this year is being a participant
at the
Saltscape East Coast Expo which was held
in Halifax on April 28, 29 and 30, 2006.
