About a week ago, Werther & Gray participated in our first in-person event, the Pufferbelly Steampunk Express at the Wilmington & Western Railroad. I was super excited for our first craft show to be steampunk themed! Admittedly, I don't know much about the Steampunk culture, but if you're reading this, you probably know that art and history are my thing, so it makes perfect sense for Werther & Gray's items.
The day was unusually hot for early June, and our table was in full sun until about noon, nevertheless, we had a great time! We enjoyed meeting many of the visitors, watching the trains come and go all day, and of course, sharing our appreciation of artfully scented candles.
Motivated by our participation in this event, we designed a new candle to be premiered on the day of the fair. A few days later we received a wholesale order for this candle, so stay tuned for local availability! I must say, it's a very handsome fragrance indeed.
We look forward to the possibility of vending at next year's event as well. In the meantime, check out the new Steampunk candle under the Art & Culture category here on our site.
