In February of 2019, we were all wrapped in the normalcy of a typical northern Wisconsin and Minnesota winter. The snow was deep, the temperatures were cold and we were all eager for spring. As it happened, a young woman named Stacie from Cedarburg, Wisconsin was attending a trade show in Northern Wisconsin at the Lake of Torches Casino in Lac du Flambeau, WI. As luck would have it, a slightly older gentleman named Ben from Duluth, Minnesota was attending the same trade show and his booth was placed adjacent to Stacie’s. The two got to talking and the chemistry was apparent. The trade show ended the next day, but Stacie and Ben exchanged numbers and decided to keep in touch. This “keeping in touch” was a more serious commitment, as they both soon discovered. They were on the phone with one another within an hour of leaving the Casino and didn’t miss a day talking on the phone until 6 weeks later when Ben traveled to Cedarburg for a visit. Both the Girl and the Boy were amazed to find that, once together again, their chemistry was even stronger than they had imagined. Within 48 hours of meeting again, the two had gotten matching tattoos in Madison Wisconsin, within sight of the Wisconsin Capitol building.
People fall in love in mysterious ways. People stay in love in even more mysterious ways. The next year and a half would pose a variety of challenges for the couple. If tending to 5 children (a son and daughter for Ben, and 3 sons for Stacie) didn’t pose enough of an opposition, the Covid-19 would. In May of 2020, Ben lost his job of 20 years and Stacie’s job became acutely more challenging because of a reduction in staff. They continued to travel back and forth between the two towns to the tune of 407 miles one-way throughout the crisis. They persevered. Ben found new employment but the two wanted something more. Something that really connected them to each other. Both had been married before, so while that was discussed, it just didn’t feel like the stamp that they wanted to put on the envelope mailing the world about their feelings for each other.
Stacie has always been a candle enthusiast and over the past decade had created some orders for friends and family and small businesses through her small candle business know as “Uteaque.” The couple started talking about how they could make a business work that would allow them to be together more often, for longer periods of time. Their thoughts returned to the candles. Almost everyone loves candles, they thought. So why not see if the beautiful candles that Stacie had been making were marketable to a broader base? And that’s what they did.
In September of 2020, Girl+Boy Soy Candle Co was launched in Duluth, Minnesota and Cedarburg, Wisconsin. The concept of hand poured candles with custom labels seemed to be just the lift that people would need in the dark times surrounding the Covid 19 pandemic. The couple developed a sales platform that incentivized sales for different kinds of people – school fundraising, wholesale orders for gifts for businesses, and an a la carte program for those who might just need a candle or two. On 9/18/20, the pair produced their first order for a group of ala carte customers, and G+B S was born! Ben, though stubborn, was quick to learn the trade and found that he actually liked making candles. Stacie was already a pro at making the candles, but was appreciative of Ben’s knowledge of supply and production, gleaned from 20 years in the promotional marketing industry. The two now were able to spend a majority of their time together, in Cedarburg or Duluth, depending on who had the kids home. The candles started rolling out of their kitchens and into the hands of customers.
There are many side stories and much humor and joy that lies behind this brief synapses of this young company. Stacie and Ben are both avid storytellers, so if you see them and you’re interested, just ask and they’ll be happy to fill you in. Happy Candeling!!
Thank you for your interest in Girl+Boy Soy Candle Company!
