Hints of mystery and intrigue combine to create Lost Coast’s seducing oceanic aroma..Deep shadowy waters and uncharted coastal scapes were the concept behind, what has since become, our #1 best-selling fragrance year round..It’s okay to get lost sometimes....About this company:.In the spring of 2015, wife, mother of four, and military veteran, Melissa Burgess fell in love with the candlemaking process..She found that it gave her a creative and therapeutic outlet while juggling the demands of motherhood and processing an on-going journey with PTSD..After signing up for a handful of local maker's markets, Melissa's unique blends, strong fragrant throws, and muted packaging quickly gained the attention of San Diego consumers and retailers alike..This early success eventually led to her husband (a Rockford Native) to jumping ship from corporate America and joining her in this "accidental candle company" full-time..In 2019, Craft + Foster moved to Rockford to start their home here. They are in the process of opening up their new candle making wear-house and shipment shop, and we are so excited to spend more time with them..In just a few short years, Craft + Foster has grown from local candle pop-up to a nationally recognized brand featured in Neiman Marcus and hundreds of amazing independent retail locations across the country..Come check out this awesome candle company from San Diego / Rockford at Culture Shock!
