Brittney Hippensteel

We are very pleased to introduce you to Hamilton Wax Co….the quintessential “Shop Local, Shop Small Business” company.  Hamilton Wax Co has been in business for a year, based in Lancaster’s west end neighborhood of Hamilton Park.  Named after the neighborhood, this small business is run out of an 850 sq. ft. home that was built in the 30’s for the Hamilton Watch Factory workers and their families. The owner’s love for beautiful home goods, and simple design is where this dream began.

Brittney Hippensteel has a BFA in Graphic Design, but loves all kinds of art.  In addition to creating quality hand crafted candles, Brittney is a full time Graphic Designer.  She enjoys package design, photography, and social media marketing. As a self taught candle maker she has fulfilled her dream to make something tangible – outside the computer generated graphic design world.

Hamilton Wax Co offers 5 classic scents in 9 oz jars or 8 oz tins.  Holiday and seasonal scents are available as well. The candles are richly scented, soy wax candles poured in small batches. All candles are proudly vegan and phthalate free. Orders can be placed by visiting the Hamilton Wax Co website or locally at the following vendors:

Sophie Stargazer – 323 N Queen St, Lancaster, PA 17603

Realm and Reason – 213 W King St, Lancaster, PA 17603
