    1. Frères Branchiaux Candle Co. • Instagram 


      The home fragrance company Frères Branchiaux Candle Co. (Collin, Ryan, and Austin) is sure to bring delightful smells and warmth to your home. The candles are hand-poured in small batches, hand-packaged, and curated with care. You can find all their products online, and when you make a purchase, you’ll be contributing to a good cause: 10% of all their proceeds go to homeless shelters nationwide. Their Green Lavender Candle will help transport you "into spa mode with its hints of green tea, lemongrass, and bergamot. Relax, relate, and release.

      This year, trade those short-lived flowers for highly nutritious, naturally grown edible ones from Little Wild Things Farm. Enhance a (or every) dish with any of their microgreens, lettuces, or edible flowers. We love their Garnish Kit and Microgreens Sample Pack.
