Our Story

TheShabby Wick is expanding from an online candle gift store to a local artisan retail store in Dripping Springs. We will showcase our own handmade candles and fragrances and also provide a marketplace to showcase other high-quality, hand-made, sustainable products from small business brands locally, in Texas and the USA.

More About Us:

During our time selling my products at local area pop-up markets, we met so many amazing makers and artists. This really reiterated for us that people still value handcrafted, artisan, one-of-a-kind items and above all really want to support local brands. Brands that have a story and put their hearts and souls into creating unique products. Products that are made by a real artist and who appreciate every single sale.

Beyond being a marketplace, The Shabby Wick will be a place where neighbors, friends and visitors can gather and learn new skills through workshops. Classes will be taught by seasoned artisans who have a passion for sharing their crafts from candle making to paper making - and everything in between! So whether you are a supporter of local talent, or simply someone who appreciates the beauty of handcrafted or sustainable goods, we invite you to visit our store and celebrate our
artists and brands.

We strive to support our neighbors in Dripping Springs where we live ourselves.  We have lived in Drip for the last 13 years and The Shabby Wick was born out of the desire for new ventures. Owner Nikki closed a 17-year teaching career and opened an online small business in 2016. With the
support of friends and family we have grown and are now ready to place our feet at
the corner of RR12 and Fitzhugh!
