Only the best stuff baby!
It burns clean with our natural scents and makes everything around
you smell better.
Our head quarters are at
in Scranton PA.
But our products are available in many other places....
Our main focus is repurposing
vintage soda bottles. Vintage bottles were made to be reused many times and often had great graphics.
But, we also do new bottles too.
Andrew was born in Michigan, raised outside of Philadelphia, and now calls Scranton home. Raised by a father that fixed things rather then getting them fixed, Andrew enjoys working it himself. His father taught him a lot, but the most important thing was not being afraid to give it a try. That helped him learn about and then work on classic Volkswagens and old property rehabs. It's something that Andrew hopes to pass to his two sons. The world has become much more disposable and it's important to see that the new one is not always the better one.
Andrew spends most of his time with his two sons and his partner Meegan, because that's what makes him happy. A lot of time you can find him at On&On Marketplace in next to National Bakery in Scranton. This is where the Wax Junky factory is housed along with the main retail location. If you are in the area stop by.
Always keep a burning candle within sight. Extinguish all candles when leaving a room or before going to sleep. Be sure the wick ember is no longer glowing.
Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire. Keep burning candles away from furniture, drapes, bedding, carpets, books, paper, flammable decorations, etc.
Keep burning candles out of the reach of children and pets.
Trim candlewicks to ¼ inch each time before burning. Long or crooked wicks can cause uneven burning and dripping.
Always use a candle-holder specifically designed for candle use. The holder should be heat resistant, sturdy, and large enough to contain any drips or melted wax.
Be sure the candle-holder is placed on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This can help prevent heat damage to underlying surfaces and prevent glass containers from breaking.
Keep the wax pool free of wick trimmings, matches and debris at all times.
Always read and follow the manufacturer’s use and safety instructions carefully. Don’t burn a candle longer than the manufacturer recommends.
Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents, ceiling fans and air currents. This will help prevent rapid, uneven burning, and avoid flame flare-ups and sooting. Drafts can also blow nearby lightweight items into the flame where they could catch fire.
Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room. Don’t burn too many candles in a small room or in a “tight” home where air exchange is limited.
Don’t burn a candle all the way down. Extinguish the flame if it comes too close to the holder or container. For a margin of safety, discontinue burning a candle when 2 inches of wax remains or ½ inch if in a container.
Never touch or move a burning candle or container candle when the wax is liquid.
Never use a knife or sharp object to remove wax drippings from a glass holder. It might scratch, weaken, or cause the glass to break upon subsequent use.
Place burning candles at least three inches apart from one another. This helps ensure they don’t melt one another, or create their own drafts to cause improper burning.
Use a snuffer to extinguish a candle. It’s the safest way to prevent hot wax splatters.
Never extinguish candles with water. The water can cause the hot wax to splatter and might cause a glass container to break.
Be very careful if using candles during a power outage. Flashlights and other battery-powered lights are safer sources of light during a power failure.
Extinguish a candle if it repeatedly smokes, flickers, or the flame becomes too high. The candle isn’t burning properly. Cool, trim the wick, then check for drafts before relighting.
Never use a candle as a night light.
