Yay! We are on the Brisbane news this week!
Yay! We are on the Brisbane news this week!
We have been super-duper busy this month! It’s really crazy!
First of all we have to organize enough stocks for the pop up next week. We also have to think about the layout and decoration about the shop! When we finally think we are done. We realized we have to do it all again for Finders Keepers which is even scarier if you have been Finders Keepers before! We have no idea how many stocks we should bring. What to expect. How to decorate. Everything is unknown!!
To top it up. Right before all these begins, we are going to Sydney to attend an engagement party! So we are losing three days for preparation.
Anyway. I think we are on the right track now. Just a few minor things to do and that’s it. We are ready!
Wow!! It’s been an exciting week here at our studio! I can never imagine so many people came along and participated in the voting for our tea towels!! Thank you VERY much!! You guys are amazing!
So we have the result here! You can see how close the votes are. Tea towels 3,4 and 7 received the same number of votes! The result was very different at its early stage but the Whale tea towel(Number 1) is a clear winner all the way!
These tea towels are all my babies. I couldn’t pick the best one without your help so thank you very much for your vote. I really appreciate it!
These 4 tea towels are our winners and we will be printing them soon! After printing we still need to cut and sew them so it will be still awhile until they are available.
Stay tuned! We will let you know as soon as they’re ready on our website!!
For those who have voted last week I will be mailing our calendars shortly. Please keep an eye on your letter box!
Thank you again!
Yes! I am so excited!
I was supposed to tell you this big news when it’s closer to the opening date but I can’t hide my happiness anymore!

Amali Soy Candles Co. is now available on our website! Sydneysider Amy Cauchi is the talented girl behind all these wonderful fragrance. Each & every Amali candle is hand poured using only 100% puresoy wax and no nasty additives. She use lead and toxin free, 100%cotton wicks to ensure an environmentally harmless burn.
Very often we bought stuffs online (or even offline) without knowing what we’re buying and who we’re supporting. We’ve done a little interview with Amy here so that we can understand a bit more about the brand :
Q1. I love your fruity beautiful fragrant candles! And to me it’s a big stand out from other candles makers. What inspired you to make them?
Amy: I’ve always personally opted for the more ‘delicious’ smelling candles over the ‘perfumy’ type; I want to only sell products that I truly love myself and believe 100% in. That being said, I do try to make sure I’m always offering a diverse range of vessels, fragrances and labels to suit almost every taste & style.
Q2. Having a small business is so challenging but I would love to talk about the bright side of the business. What was the best experience you have since you started Amali Soy Candle?
Amy: My business is mostly online based, Instagram being the most successful for me, so I would have to say that the highlight of running Amali over the past almost 2 years would have to be the amazing people I’ve had the pleasure of ‘meeting’ and interacting with on almost a daily basis. Some of these people I’ve even since met in person and am lucky enough to now call them my friends.
Suki: Yes I agree! Social media is a wonderful thing! I’ve “met” so many amazing people on Instagram and Facebook who are so supportive and sweet. Knowing all these people believes in my products makes me keep on going.
Q3. What’s your plan for Amali Soy Candle Co?
Amy: My plan is to keep on growing & evolving everyday. What’s on trend today may not be on trend tomorrow so you have to be willing to adapt and have the ability to jump onto things before anybody else does. That’s what sets successful businesses apart from the rest in my opinion. I would also love to secure more bricks & mortar and also online stockists and see Amali in stores all around Australia, and even potentially around the world!
Suki: Sometimes when I am designing my products I do worry about what’s on trend and what’s not. It’s like when everyone is buying watermelon design and I thought to myself “should I draw watermelon?” but then it’s like what Amy said “you have to be willing to adapt and have the ability to jump onto things before anybody else does” so I rather create my own trend and be myself. I am very happy to know there are people out there want to be different and believe they can do it.
I am very excited to work with Amy. I believe her beautiful sweet candles are perfect match with our products. We hope they will bring you a happy home!
We found the beautiful Kasoobi products on Instagram the other day and we instantly fell in love with all their pretty customised timber sign and accessories!
Sarah Maddison is the creative mind behind Kasoobi. She does all the design and cut by herself at her Echuca/ Moama studio. The timber is eco-friendly and non toxic and made with no added chemicals. It’s very nice to know small business are trying to do their part in the environmental protection.
Our timber sign for our new home and a business cards holder from Kasoobi arrived in beautiful packaging and they are all so lovely! Can’t wait to order more!
