Roving Reporter Cathy Gibb de Swarte visits a special Littleport Gift Shop
“Excellent quality candles and melts, aroma fills your house whilst burning, all handmade by a lovely lady and at very reasonable prices, so much better than shop bought”.
“Just got new box of 6 sets of 6 different aromas. Some supposed to be for Christmas presents”.
“Love the way they were tied with the vintage string on box. It’s little touches like that I love…”
“Amazing quality and service. Highly recommended.”
These are just few impressive comments from Mandy Wright’s customers as she continues to break the mould!
As Mandy Wright explains: “For those people who don’t know, at first my homemade aromatic melts and candles was purely a hobby and I was working from home, but it just expanded and eventually became a business.”
In the ever growing popular scented candle and aromatic melts business which now seems to be flooding the commercial market including today’s supermarkets, Mandy wants to provide a local service for the Littleport community with affordable products, while also promoting local artists and authors by selling their work in her local Westcott Aromas shop on Saxon Business Park opposite Delaynies & The Vintage Collective Store.
Mandy said, “At first I named my business ‘Mutleys Delights’, but because it sounded like doggy merchandising, I then renamed it Westcott Aromas before renting the Unit in Saxon Business Park last February.”
Mandy currently works there on her own, but she is hoping to train her granddaughter Tyler who will then be assisting her in the shop.
Mandy stocks a variety of items from jewellery, soaps, bath salts, and horseshoe sculptures which are made by her talented 13-year-old nephew Jack Wright.
The opening hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm but is closed on Friday and Sunday.
It really is worth a visit for that last minute prezzie or a browse round to see what some local artists are producing as well as Mandy’s own homemade products.
