Retail Location-Allen Wick Candles

Posted by Jennifer Foshay on

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!
