While developing your candlestick collection, first decide on a material (i.e. wood, metal, ceramic or stone) that speaks to you. Buying new is the easy part. You can quite literally browse online with the most specific search filters and descriptions available to find exactly what you want. The challenge (and fun part) is discovering the old that complements the new.
When antiquing and thrifting it’s easy to be overwhelmed, which is why I go in with open eyes and a focused mind. Survey each vignette briefly, only stopping if a collection contender has caught your eye. In my experience, I’ve had the best luck scouring through local shops like Red Crow Antique Mall, Boxes From the Attic, Vintage Orchid Antiques, Olive Blue Resale and Baba One Of A Kind. Though the journey to collect is never truly over, you’ll soon boast a fabulous candlestick collection featuring intricate designs and beautiful craftsmanship through the eras.
