new in store...soy candles, fishing floats and etched glass domes!

We have been very busy here at the Drill Hall Emporium making our very own range of soy candles... Our first scent is "lemon verbena" which is very refreshing. We will also have gardenia, frangipane and vanilla in the range. These will be for sale in our store very soon. They are all housed in vintage preserve jars of varying sizes and all complete with tin lids. The jars are recycled and recyclable...very eco. As is soy wax which is a slow-burning and clean-burning wax, and a renewable resource. But enough about the eco-benefits...how beautfiul are they? Also just arrived are these antique glass fishing floats. We have them displayed in a large wooden bowl and I can't stop looking at them!
Each one is unique and of a slightly different colour. I have a favourite picked out already.
These gorgeous glass domes are 19th century and are etched with grapevine designs. We were lucky enough to find an entire collection of seven. But they will be sold separately to keep every one happy (well seven people, anyway). I think a collection of perfume bottles would look wonderful underneath.


  1. WOWWWWWWW.....beautiful !!..like your candles !!..so tough !!...happy day darling...love from me...xxx..

  2. Hi Tammy I'm your latest happy follower. Oh my, what gorgeous delights you have for sale. Time to head to NN, I think! J x

  3. Hi Tammy,

    Just caught up on the last couple of posts. Dragging my feet. Not enough hours in the day!

    I love the candles you have made. Clever girls. What is it with candles and us women, nearly like a shoe fettish, isn't it, well it is for me anyway. The kids have got to the stage now where they just roll their eyes at the mere mention of candles.

    Those glass floats have such a beautiful patina. In this case I think more the better.

    I have never seen glass etching on the domes before. That is another love and could seriously get out of control if I don't curb the need to buy them all.

    I hope you're having a great week. Nearly getting blown away here today!

    Take care

  4. Hi Janine, thank you for stopping in. I am glad that you like the candles, and yes, I do have a thing for them too. At least one in every room but usually more. And yes, the glass floats look good en massse. But just one is beautiful too. Thank you for your lovely comments, have a great day, Tammy

  5. Wonderful to see the soy candles at the shop Tammy. I'm no rabid Greenie, but these have to be better than the standard ones & all the petro-chemical by products stuff that they are made from.
