Candylwood was inspired by a love of creating beautiful moments. It is for those moments in-between work and chores and obligations and commitments. For those treasured times when you curl up in a chair with a deliciously good book and an even more delicious bar of chocolate. It is for that precious hour when the demands of the day are behind you and you run a deep, fragrant bath; fill the room with candlelight and music; and immerse yourself in the uplifting, sensory magic of the moment.
Everything about Candylwood is intimate or touched by the hand. Products made by hand have a different feel, in a similar way that vegetables eaten from the home garden taste different to those bought from the store. Perhaps the difference is in the touch of a hand or perhaps it stirs, however gently, a childhood memory of the handcrafted treasures in grandma's old wooden chest. Whatever it is, this elusive quality is found in Candylwood's handmade books, stationery, chocolates, and lifestyle accessories.
Candylwood is kind to the earth. Nearly all our labelling and packaging is biodegradable, recycled or reused. Some of our candles are recycled, while all our notebooks are made from off-cuts or recycled paper. Our intention is to further develop the electronic book section while the second-hand book section helps in a small way to reduce paper usage in the world. Candylwood supports local talent. From books to chocolate to signature oils and candles, we try to source locally and work with authors, businesses, individuals and artisans who share our passions, our ethics and our beliefs.
Candylwood Online Book & Chocolate Shop is a place for you to explore, to discover little treasures, to find a special gift, or simply get lost in a good book. It is a place of personal meaning, of intimacy, of time that is yours alone to savour. We hope that you enjoy it, minute by delicious, beautiful, inspiring minute.
Candylwood grew out of the personal passions of its creator, Sharron Toop, whose love for books, chocolate and creating beautiful moments inspired this journey.
