Soy Candles in Vintage China Cups? It's ok :)

Fancy That is thrilled to be carrying soy wax candles poured into vintage china cups and saucers handcrafted by The Pink Fence.

Reservations about using vintage cups to burn candles? Don't worry :) Here's a little primer (see below) about these unique and lovely candle holders, and just how easy it is to re-use the cup after the candle is gone.

Soy wax melts at lower temperatures than normal paraffin (used in main-stream candles). The soy wax, depending on additives, melts at between 130F and 180F. The only part of the wax that gets to "flashpoint" is at the tip of the wick where the "fire" is about 450F. Any melted wax stays between 130F and 180F.

Compare that temperature to placing boiling water in the same china cup… 212F. The water may stay above 200F for over 5 minutes, putting three times as much stress on a china cup when drinking tea than burning soy wax as a candle.

And when the candle is done (some of the candles can burn for over 20 hours), you have a beautiful keepsake that can be enjoyed, and used for years and years to come :)

So stop by Fancy That’s Shoppe Friday 11am-3pm, Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5pm and select your favorite soy candle in a vintage china cup. (psst! They make a great Holiday Gift!) If you can't stop by, and would like one mailed to you, drop us a note or call toll free 1-888-3232-TEA....we are always happy to help! Thanks for stopping by! :)
