Back in December of 2001, my Mom was diagnosed with lung cancer. Needless to say, the next 11 months, until my Mom passed away, were so difficult. The only time I really felt at peace, was when I would go to the beach for a run and see those gorgeous pelicans gliding above the ocean, so peacefully!
From that time on, whenever I felt like I needed peace in my life, I would head to the beach to see the pelicans!
Many years later, I started searching for something that I was really passionate about, something that I truly loved to do. I dabbled in woodworking, making signs and other crafty things, and whenever I went into my garage to work on something, I would always say “I’m going to Pelican Place.” It was my happy place where I felt at peace and a beautiful reminder of my mother. In 2019, I bought a starter kit to make candles and try something new. I LOVED IT! I started learning how to master the art of candle making. This was it! The passion I had been searching for. I started to give family and friends my candles, and they loved them. Their encouragement and my true passion pushed me to start my own business and with that, Pelican Place & Company was born.
After some time of just making candles, I thought, how cool would it be to make gift baskets and gift boxes, and include my candles in them. My idea was received very well and I have to say, I am loving every minute at Pelican Place & Company!!
From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING MY SMALL BUSINESS!
