Hi there! I'm Deb Krizak and I am the newly appointed (uh hum only appointed) director and founder of The Really Useless Candle Co. (My side hustle!)
Let me introduce myself. I won't pretend to be a company of creative fuelled chicks who hang out sipping Moet at the end of a working week in a corporate office over looking Sydney Harbour. Nup! It's just me, myself and I.. Oh, and a whole lot of candle wax and funky scents.
The Really Useless Candle Co. was created out of my simple love of candles and my need to express myself. So here I am, sharing some of my favourite 'slightly cheeky' thoughts on a candle in a world that has become far too PC for my liking. I hope you can share in my humour :)
Why the crazy business name you ask? Well, my idea to start this business was created during the dreaded Covid-19 when I lost all of my work as a performing artist and needed to find a way to fill my creative soul. Something quiet, reflective and soul nurturing. Very different to my life as an entertainer and as a Mum to twins! To be honest, it was a time where I felt pretty useless and struggled to find something that could quieten my mind amidst all of the noise. And so the name was spawned - The Really Useless Candle Co. I'm happy to say I surprised myself and even built this very website from scratch! A lot can come from adversity I guess and I hope that my customers will enjoy being a part of not only my journey, but theirs too.
Thanks for visiting,
Deb K x
PS - I still love all things musical and you'll even find the odd musical reference in a slogan or two (see if you can spot 'The Sound Of Music' reference).
"Whatever the weather, we weather the weather".
We never know what's around the corner. So smile, take a deep breath and give thanks for the little things. Even candles : )
We’re all about self expression ... Oh, and beautifully scented candles! Each of our candles are packaged elegantly so that all you have to do is choose your glass color (Black or White), your preferred scent and what you want to say. We don’t want you to have to think too hard, so every candle is $29.99 plus $10 postage and handling within Australia
We are always adding new scents to our deluxe range of candles. Keep checking in to see what our scent of the month is. Our featured aroma this month is “RASPBERRY BERET”. For lovers of all things sweet and spicy with a nod towards our PRINCE of pop!
All of our scents have a unique personality, just like our slogans.
Do you like the heady rush of discovering a new scent or do you like to be in total control? Here's a detailed description of our scents, lovingly provided by children. Coz let's face it, they DGAF who they offend.
