This shop does not sell single tarts but Kathy, the very friendly and helpful owner, pointed me in the direction of her sampler packs and from there I decided to go ahead and place an order.
- Hazelnut Coffee - A fresh brewed cup of coffee with hazelnut creamer added.
- Mocha Cream - Coffee with a hint of chocolate and vanilla cream.
- Coffee Vanilla - Smooth, creamy vanilla is blended with robust, rich coffee. This is comforting, warm and tasty.
- Cinnamon Coffee - Rich, warm, robust coffee stirred with a cinnamon stick to give it an extra kick!
- Cafe Caramel - Aroma of fresh-brewed cappuccino, filled with heavy cream, and sweetened with sugary caramel.
- Cappuccino - Very strong Coffee with cream and sugar.
This 6-pack of 1 oz. tarts cost $5.95.
Jack Frost - 'A crisp clean peppermint aroma with hints of vanilla bean.'
I love the Jack Frost scent. I was surprised that hubby loves it too, because he is usually so anti-mint. So heck yeah, I went ahead and ordered a bag of this scent. And how freakin' cute are they?? There are four 1 oz. snowflake shaped tarts, gorgeous icy blue-white color, sent in an equally festive blue and white snowy designed treat bag. Each tart is in its own little baggie. Ohmygosh, they smell divine. And they're so strong! I'm in heaven with this one.
This 4 oz. bag cost $3.95.
Sleigh Ride - 'A wonderful blend of pine, apples and cinnamon, bayberry,
holly, and a hint of vanilla.'
This is a wonderful scent too. It's like a spiced fruit first, with the pine swirling around it, and just enough sweetness to keep it from being too harsh. It's not a warm, cozy scent like a winter bakery type would be. There is something crisp and 'moist' about it, almost bright. And once again, these are just too darn cute. There are five little baggies in the larger Christmas tree printed treat bag, each baggie containing a 1/2 oz. green dotted tree and a 1/2 oz. red dotted tree. (Each baggie contains 1 oz. of wax.)
This 5 oz. bag sells for $4.25.
Birthday Cake - ' Lots of buttery, creamy, and vanilla notes make this scent irresistible. It is a very light scent so if you like a nice soft background of vanilla this is perfect for you.'
The cuteness continues! I received this freebie cupcake shaped tart in super yummy Birthday Cake scent. It is a 1 oz. tart, and I will save it to melt on my birthday which is coming in December.
I also received these two adorable leaf shaped freebies in Vanilla Bean, and Red Hot Cinnamon scents. Each is about 1/2 oz. I might melt them together and see how they smell.
AND . . . I received this free fridge magnet as a thank you gift.
Thank you so much for all the extras, Kathy!!!!
Woodcrafts & Candles is a fun shop to browse. Not only are there tons of tarts to choose from, but there are candles of various shapes and sizes, magnets, and (as the Woodcraft part of the name indicates) a variety of interesting wood crafted objects like candle holders, pens, and even Christmas ornaments.
Shipping was fast. I ordered on Sunday morning (Nov. 4) and had my package on Thursday (Nov. 8). Everything came nicely packaged and labeled, in a priority box. I was given a partial shipping refund, which was awesome. Owner/wax wizard Kathy was so friendly and helpful in Etsy convos when I contacted her to ask about single tarts. And these tarts are so strongly scented! They have a slightly moist feel to them, which tells you how packed with fragrance oil they are. I'm feeling pretty confident that the scent throw will be awesome.
I've been greatly pleased with this transaction so far. In fact, I'm kicking myself for having waited so dang long to order! I'm already thinking about my next order because there are so many scents I want to try, and I want to get at least one of those wooden ornaments. I am just all-around thrilled with this vendor at the moment! :)
