Front Porch Candle Company Collective Haul and Wax Sale

Front Porch Candle Co. Haul

I’ve been a bad, bad girl.

Shopping for Front Porch tarts is an extremely addictive habit. New tarts are posted on the website 4x-5x a week but only in limited quantities and varieties, so demand is HIGH and the frenzy to score even a handful of tarts is insane. But people like me keep going back and buying more because of:

  1. The thrill of the hunt. Will you be one of the lucky few to get even one? Sometimes I’m so excited when stock’s added to the site that I end up buying tarts in scents that I would normally avoid.
  2. Front Porch makes yummy foody/bakery scented tarts that are strongly scented.
  3. No minimum purchase and free shipping.
  4. Long turn around time. This has been my main problem and the reason I’ve ended up with soooo many tarts. I usually buy one, maybe two, tarts each time Front Porch updates their site and after awhile I lose track of which tarts and how many tarts I’ve bought. I like to try new fragrances but oftentimes I end up buying doubles, or triples, of scents because I forget which scents I’ve tried or purchased already. Weeks later I’m SHOCKED when a big box of tarts arrives on my doorstep.

Work has been keeping me pretty busy until just recently so I only cataloged my Front Porch tarts today and, wow, I’ve accumulated a lot more than I realized in the span of 3-4 months. I quickly came to the conclusion that I had more tarts than I could actually use so I needed to separate what I liked from the pile and blog sale the rest.

One by one, I sniffed each and every tart. In the end I’ve decided that I love Front Porch’s bread, coconut, coffee, and apple blends. I also determined that I’m not a big fan of their spicy/cinnamon, floral, cherry, pink, blackberry, lime and banana scents. There’s nothing wrong with them; it’s just personal taste. If you’re into spicy, floral or fruity scents then you’d love them but, in general, regardless of the vendor those aren’t the types of fragrances I gravitate towards and I acted out of character when I bought them.

I’ve decided to sell these tarts in an effort to recoup some of the money I spent on them. Better than just tossing them out, right? And maybe then I can put that money towards a macro lens for my new camera…or even more tarts (haha!) though perhaps I’ll try a different vendor next. I was thinking Candles From the Keeping Room, Haley’s Heavenly Scents, Lasting Scent Candles or Tiffany Candles…

I’ve created a new page just for my wax destash sale here. That’s where I’ll list all the tarts that are still available for sale and mark off the ones that have been sold.
