Kickstarter Project A Huge Success - Best Candle Project Ever!
We're absolutely thrilled with our latest project that is supported our first order of custom glass to be made exclusively for us right here in the USA. Please take three and a half minutes and watch our video to learn more details. Our project hit its initial funding goal in only 53 hours and after a week hit its first stretch goal. By its end on December 8, 2014, it was the biggest project in the candles category in Kickstarter's history! We delivered all of our rewards on time by Christmas, and couldn't be more delighted with the quality of our new Made in the USA glass! Thanks so much to all who've supported us and our project.
On Thursday, November 7th, 2013, the League of American Bicyclists named Middle Davids a Bicycle Friendly Business, one of only 27 in Indiana and the first in Johnson County! Click here to read the whole press release, and look forward to our celebration candle to be released soon!
You found us!
And that makes us happy. We're a small company founded ten years ago with two big ideas: make really great stuff and serve really great people. So far, so good. For five years running now, our shop has been a finalist in the voting for the Best Gift Shop in the greater Indianapolis area, and we've now won twice, which humbles us, and encourages us to continue to do our best to make the best candles we can and feature other great artists who have a similar passion to make great stuff! We continue to expand our fundraising relationships,helping students excel in music, athletics, missions and travel, which is an honor that inspires us every day.
So thanks for stopping by!
For centuries, candles have been a source of light, and our goal is not only to share the candles that we create, but also to add a little light to our community. Presently in addition to our candles, we feature the work of more than a dozen other artists -- pottery, weaving, jewelry, visual art, woodcraft, metalcraft, hand-bound journals and more. If you are nearby, we invite you to visit our shop, share some of your story, get to know our artists, watch or help us make a candle or two...
If you can't come by, check out our tour online, learn more about our work with non-profit fundraisers, other merchants who stock our candles, our corporate gifts program, or just go shopping right now.

We're humbled and appreciative of all of you who took the time to vote and make us the Indianapolis Area's Favorite Gift Shop for 2010, Runner up in 2011 and winner once again in 2012. It's fun to do our very best to bring you really great stuff, crafted by hand by real humans who live nearby, and we're so thankful that so many of you honored us by voting for our "little shop with big ideas."
All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle. Be Light!
