PenPal Candle Founder TiffanyPenPal Candle Co Logo

Hi! I'm Tiffany. I'm the owner and lead artist for Brownstone Market and PenPal Candles. I'm a wife mother of 2 beautiful babies. I spend my early mornings in the carpool lines with my coffee in hand. Penpal candles started as a way to create personalize and funny item for family and friends.

I have worked in the Accounting and Healthcare industry for over 15 years but always had a love for design and photography. After deciding to be a stay at home mom to my son, I wanted to do something with my free time, so I started a small Etsy shop and worked from home in our garage.


The first candle I created was the Coffee Candle; it came from my love for the smell of coffee. I had this cool idea to incorporate coffee, herbs, and fruit to enhance the essential oil of the candle, and it was a hit. It was my 12-year-old daughter idea to personalize the candles to send to family and friends, and this is how Penpal started.


PenPal is a lifestyle brand we started off hand pouring candles, and now we have added apparel, greeting cards, and more.


Our goal is throughout every season; the brownstone market team search high and low to find the best essential oils to fit perfectly in your space.


We are proud to be Carolina made candle company focusing on our community and giving back. Our candles are still hand-poured, and hand-labeled our passion is never to settle our wax, wick, jars, labels, and lids are all from distributors in North Carolina and around the U.S. Our shirts are hand press and designed locally no outsourcing for any of our product.


So please take a look around our shop we guarantee you will find something for family or friends. Still can't find what you're looking for sending us a quick message over to our team, and you may see it in our shop.
