Retail Location-Allen Wick Candles

Welcome to our retail location!  Allen Wick Candles is located in the beautiful village of Keene, Ontario.  We are just 15 minutes from Peterborough on the north-shore of Rice Lake.  We love our location!  The candle shop is in a century old schoolhouse and we occupy two of the original classrooms.  Our store is filled with a variety of soy candles including jar candles, tea lights, votives and one-of-a-kind dessert candles.  We also carry a selection of home décor, gifts and local hand-crafted items including; painted home accents, quilts, jewelry and all-natural soap.  Our candle making studio is also located on-site and is open to the public for viewing.

As I developed my candle making skills, my husband I would visit beautiful candle shops. I loved seeing all the candle creations.  It was my dream for many years to have my own candle shop to showcase my unique designs.  I also have a love for painted furniture and French country décor, so I combined all of it into Allen Wick Candle’s store.  When we moved back to Ontario, it was time to find the right location. I wanted the store to have lots of charm.  And along the way I realized that I wanted it to be in the community in which I lived.  The perfect spot opened up in this 101-year-old schoolhouse!  It has an abundance of character.  It’s my dream location!
