Hand Poured Candles
Name and Business name?
Tamika Young, CEO, Owner, Creator of Ida and Christine’s
What type of business?
Candle company, soy wax candles
How long have you been operational?
One year in June 2020
What inspired this dream? I wanted to start a business using my grandmothers names and since my husband and I love smell goods, this one made perfect sense. Quincy spent a lot of money on plug ins and I love candles. After being disappointed with the lack of fragrance, I decided to start making my own. And department stores use paraffin wax but we use soy. Soy is cleaner and free of allergens and we both have allergies.
What was your biggest milestone?
Hitting 2K in sales in one month and being in business less than a year
What is your dream in 5 years with your business? Brick and mortar or rent a space to make candles. I want to keep hand pouring all my candles
Any special notes you want to share in how your business serviced our community? Being new to Las Vegas, nothing yet. But I’m working with some charities to sign up for opportunities to give back. I really want to partner with a breast cancer awareness charity since that’s a cause personal to my family and black women. And special needs especially Down syndrome.
