Stockist Feature: Bread & Butter Boutique

Published Sep 16 2019 in Customer Appreciation, Products, Stockist Profile

More than ever, we need to look after main street stores and businesses.  Our cities and towns are scattered with vibrant independent shops and boutiques, proudly stocking American- and artisan-made goods. Harmony Farm Candles is deeply fortunate to partner with some truly lovely stores that are adding to the uniqueness of their communities. And I’d like to share them with you in periodic stockist profiles! - Erin


For this very first profile, I’m delighted to introduce Bread & Butter Boutique in Oregon City, Oregon. 

Owner Heather McDowell is celebrating one year of business this Saturday, September 21. So if you're local to the Portland area, stop by Bread & Butter Boutique for a delicious fall coffee beverage, sugar cookies and a chance to win a $50 gift certificate!
