our story

cathy first started making candles in her home kitchen as a hobby with her husband bruce..  as life can be, she became occupied with raising children and unable to continue this hobby for many years.   since rediscovering her passion for this hobby, she now gets to enjoy it alongside her youngest daughter, meghan. 

As huge candle lovers, they were always disappointed in the scent throw and burn quality from store bought candles.   together they have spent many months testing a variety of wax blends, fragrances, and wick types.  With help from family & friends they came up with  a perfect combination.

South Porch Candles and Gifts went public in December of 2015 and has been going strong and growing ever since!


In addition to providing top quality candles, South Porch has now expanded its product line with a variety of handmade gifts.
