Local Candle Shop Makes Appearance At Oscar's


By Rochelle Dean


As you pass by it on the street it smells more like a bakery than a candle shop. Even though formed out of wax, these decadent delights smell good enough to eat.

While it's taken 10 years to perfect the craft, Southern Baked Candle has been open for a year and a half and they're already getting an Oscar Nod. Business Owner, Debey Handcock received a request to include her unique candle in the gift bags given to the nominees who don't walk away with the Oscar. Bags holding 40 to 70 thousand dollars worth of products.

Handcock says when she first received the call she was so shocked she thought it was a scam. After checking the company out and realizing they were actually legitimate she says she was honored to be included in something as grand as the Oscars.

"It's so exciting to be able to represent South Carolina and Columbia and Southern Baked Candle Company in such a huge way. it's nice to be recognized and know that 10 years of work and research has really moved into something."
