Today we are happy to feature Pommes Frites Candle Co., a Los Angeles based company that makes some of the best candles around! Run by Kristen Pumphrey and Thomas Neuberger, Pommes Frites Candle Co. has participated in Renegade Craft Fair many times, and we’ve had the privilege to follow along as their company has grown. We’re excited to have them back again as vendors in this weekend’s Renegade Craft Fair in Los Angeles!

Pommes Frites was started by Kristen in Austin, TX in 2008. While Tom was always happy to help behind the scenes, he came on board officially in 2013. Kristen brings over 15 years of candle making experience to the table, having poured her first candle at the age of 12. Each candle is handmade with care in their downtown LA studio – the candles are hand-poured with Pommes Frites’ unique blend of 100% domestically grown soy wax and fine fragrance oils, and hand finished with their simple apothecary labels. Their commitment to using the finest ingredients means that these candles burn extra clean, an added bonus to a sweet-smelling treat.

What started small has grown into quite a successful business! Pommes Frites candles are carried in over 60 shops across the US, including West Elm and Steven Alan. Pommes Frites has won over many a discerning nose with their scents, which include seasonal specialties like Spruce, Spiced Pumpkin, and “Mistletoe Special” – you’ll need to smell that one for yourself to understand it’s magic.
