A Little About Five Willows
Hello! I am Amy, founder and owner of Five Willows Candle Co. I live in the lovely State of Ohio with my husband, three wonderful children, and two dogs. I am the shop owner of Five Willows Home, a passionate home decorator, and a crafter. I enjoy finding hand-picked curated pieces, creating custom-painted furniture, gardening, and traveling. I have a love affair with Mexican food, the Outlander series, and of course, candles. This love of candles led me to create Five Willows Candle Co. I wanted to create a brand that not only my friends and family could enjoy and also allow me to share my love of candles with others.
Hi! I am Nina (pronounced with a long “i” – like nine-ah) co-owner of Five Willows Candle Co. I was born and raised in the fabulous state of Oklahoma. My husband’s career has taken our family all over the country, including Australia. Currently, I reside in the great state of Tennessee with my husband and 2 children. I grew up on a farm where we raised, trained, and showed Arabian horses. I have a love of horses and all other animals, naturally. I also enjoy reading, current events, history, training my dog, and, of course, candles.
Amy and Nina's Story
We met each other long ago when our families were young. Our husbands were stationed and worked together in the Air Force. While we were all stationed together, both of our families grew. Between our two families, we had five wonderful children. As young moms, we spent time together, raising our children, walking with and without strollers, and talking about ideas and dreams. We spent nearly every holiday and much of our free time together. Over the years, we became family.
Fast forward to 2022. With a little dream, Amy decided to launch a candle business with Nina supporting her. It only made sense for her to become an owner and share the journey of Five Willows Candle Co. We both bring ideas to something we love to do and share in all the challenges and triumphs that the business has. Now that both of our husbands are retired veterans, we are excited to continue this journey together and share our love of candles.
