Hey! I am Taryn Lee, the one woman show behind Bear Den Candles.
Bear Den Candles was started in the kitchen of my rental home in Wakesha, Wisconsin with the intention to put less glass in the landfill. Reusing wine and beer bottles for the candles gave a unique twist and will always be a part of my business.
Since then, my family and I have moved twice and settled into our forever home in Sidney, Montana. Right back to where my husband and I grew up (literally, we moved back into the home I grew up in). I work in a small portion of my garage during nap time while raising my three young girls. I love the freedom to be able to be with my family and doing something I love.
My hopes for these candles are that they bring people joy and comfort. That they might spark up memories of special occasions with loved ones or be there to create new ones. For an easy gift that is extremely thoughtful keep a few on hand, purchase a gift card, or choose one of our amazing scents to send to anyone who might need to know you're thinking of them.
I carefully select each vessel I carry with the intention that whomever purchases it will reuse it in their home. Think beautiful counter top storage, decoration, flower vase, a set of drinking glasses, or maybe even a planter for your ever growing plant collection.
Although I run the business and the making all by myself, it couldn't have gotten this far without help. As you explore the website you will notice the most beautiful photography and design, all credit for that goes straight to the exponentially talented Kylene Wolf. I am so lucky to call her my dear friend and you can get to know her over at kylenewolf.com, her new blog!
I truly hope that you fall in love over and over again with my products.
