I first started buying By The River Designs candles a couple years ago at a craft show. They are my go to candle. They smell amazing and make my whole house smell so good. They are clean burning and I love the wide variety of scents. I have also purchased the wax melts which are awesome!

My family has been buying products from By the River Designs for years. We are never disappointed. The quality is exceptional. Love when we get updates on seasonal new scents. Candles burn longer than most. I burn them all year long. I would highly recommend By the River Designs!

I have ordered hanging air fresheners from By The River Designs for years. I use them in my bathroom, laundry room, closet and vehicles. I also use them as stocking stuffers. They look and smell great and last for over a month. The air fresheners you buy in the store only last a couple weeks and don't smell as good as Patty's!

This Is My Why!
Fifteen years ago I was so sick of buying candles that were either weak or would only burn half the way down the jar and then go out! I finally decided to try to make myself some quality candles for personal use. Well, that was quite the wake up call. It was not as easy as I thought it would be. But now I was on a mission and did not give up and once I made them I couldn't wait to give them away as gifts.
I soon discovered that everyone that received them, wanted to know where they could get some too. So, I decided to start selling them at local craft shows and I've been doing it ever since. I've added some other fine products since then, but I still make the candles myself. They are all hand poured and hand labeled. All of my containers are reusable. They are all made out of a high quality fragrances and palm wax.
I believe my products are the best they can be and I hope you will give them a try to see for yourself!
