New Year's Giveaway!


Hello all!  Hope your New Year has started great!  A few issues of Country Living ago, I was reading about this candle company called Linnea's Lights.  Around that same time, I opened the shoppe and wanted to include a few product lines, specifically a candle line.  After reading the feature on this company, I just knew (without even smelling them!) that they were the right fit for the shoppe.  So, I quickly contacted them and worked with a couple of really sweet ladies to place an order.  I couldn't be more impressed with the candles.  The packaging (recycled or recyclable) is gorgeous!  I love things in pretty packages!  And, they smell divine!  They are made in small batches (hand- poured) with soy wax and cotton (lead free) wicks.  Each candle comes with its own little box of matches as well.  It is little things like this that make them so special.  But, what is really special is the story behind the company.


Lynn (left) started making candles as a hobby.  And, as hobbies have the habit of doing, it led her to selling her candles at local fairs in Indiana with her husband, Danny.  From there, it grew into Linnea's Lights... the name is inspired by their family's Swedish roots.  After Lynn's husband passed away, her daughter Laura (right) came on board to oversee certain aspects of the company.  These two ladies continue to remain deeply involved in the production, planning, sales, and marketing of their company.  

Not only am I impressed with their product, but also their wonderful customer service.  It is always nice to know the story behind the company and it is wonderful to do business with nice people *smiles*

So, I contacted Laura with a little idea about a giveaway here on the blog and she went for it.  I did ask her what her favorite scent was (Amber) and Lynn's as well (Magnolia.)  Those are the two that we are giving away this week!  There will be 2 winners drawn randomly.  Here is how you can enter:

First, go to Linnea's Lights, and tell me which one you think you would like better: Amber or Magnolia
Then, leave me a comment for one entry.
Leave a second comment if you go and Like Linnea's Lights on Facebook
Leave a third comment if you go and  Like Vintage Junky on Facebook
Leave a fourth if you tweet about the giveaway or Linnea's Lights.


I will draw a winner next Monday and announce the winner on Januay 10th.  I love these candles and know you will too!

bye for now!


ps.  I wasn't paid in dollars or scents (heehee!!!) to write this blog post or do this giveaway.
