Poured by Hand,
One Candle at a Time

Molly Shackleton

Artisan and Founder, Short Beach Candle Company

Short Beach Candle Co. is the whimsical brainchild of Artisan and Founder, Molly Shackleton. In 2012, Molly created SBCC to bring her love of fragrance and light to others.

"Poured by hand, one candle at a time"

Each of Molly's signature candles is hand-poured with the very finest natural soy and the highest quality essential oils. It is her goal to bring each and every customer a candle they can love and share with friends and family. After all, candle crafting is more than just a hobby and more than merely business to her -- it is a true passion.

Customer satisfaction and feedback are of the utmost importance to our Founder. Your thoughts and comments are always welcome and encouraged. It you are in anyway dissatisfied with your purchase, Molly wants to know about it! We're here to make you happy.

When she's not in the kitchen pouring soy, Molly enjoys spending her time strolling on the beach with her husband Ian and their pug dog Fizzgig. She frequently weekends in Newport, RI, loves trivia, and is a rabid fan of Alfred Hitchcock films.
