Another Wedding

Our trip to markets in Cairns and Port Douglas was made worthwhile when we were asked to price Gel Candles for a wedding. The young lass selected shot glasses as thank you gifts for her guests, wine glasses as centre pieces for each of the tables at the reception, and twisted stem glasses for the ceremony.

The Gel for each Candle was coloured pink to match Bridesmaid's dresses. The shot glasses had Rose fragrance added to them. The wine glasses and the twisted stem glasses that were used for the ceremony were scented with sandalwood fragrance. Both names and date were added to each Gel Candle.

If you would like to have something different for your special day, please contact us. We can make almost any type of Gel Candle for you. Just email us and we will get back to you asap.

Kate & Chris

Kate and Chris used our candles for their special day. They were married in Cairns on the 8th of the 8th of 2008. We thank Kate for trusting Troppo Gel Candles to supply the Gel Candles for the ceremony, the tables at the reception and also as personal gifts for the guests.
We hope you both have a long, happy life together.

Fairy Gel Candle

Here we have a small ceramic fairy which has been placed on a bed of sand over which rose scented clear Gel was poured. When this cooled a top of blue coloured Gel was poured. This left a pale blue glow through the whole of the candle. Looks great and smells like a bunch of roses.

Tea light Gel Candles

We are now making "Tea light Gel Candles". These tea lights are available in many colours and fragrances. They burn for up to 4 hours and our most popular fragrance is sandalwood. This fragrance keeps away the mossies and sand flies. The cost for each of these is just .50cents. If you return the cup to us we will refill them for around .30cents each..

First wedding for 2008

Here are the beginnings of our first wedding for 2008. Shot glasses and Small wine glasses have been ordered, all in pink to match theme, with both names and date on each. More on these as time gets close.

Welcome to 2008

Welcome to the 2008 market season. We only travel to craft markets during the cooler months here in North Queensland. We started our year on the first Friday of April at the night markets on the Strand here in Townsville. Followed by the first Saturday out at Balgal Beach. This is a great friendly market, small, but well attended.
We travelled to Port Douglas during May to attend there markets. We found them crowded, but well attended and we had a great weekend.
We attended a craft market at Home Hill which was organised by the ladies of the Uniting Church. It was out second visit and we will be there next year. we only had a small area to set up so we could not show all of our candles. The above pic is of the candle maker and myself. At least you are spared the horror of seeing my face..

If you are looking for that special gift to give to someone, why not try one of our special TROPPO GEL CANDLES. We will make the candles just for you to give.
TROPPO GEL CANDLES can also be used to say "thank you" to your customers. The candle can have your logo on the glass or maybe the name of your company or the names of your customers.
Just send us a e-mail and we can discuss your needs.

We can post our candles to all parts of Australia and even to overseas countries. Just e-mail us for a quote, be different, forget the bottle of wine as a thank you / welcome / goodbye gift, give a TROPPO GEL CANDLE.

All our candles are made here in our home by us. None of our candles are imported..

Last Market for 2007

The last market for 2007 was held at Mt. Low / Bushland Beach. Only a few k's out of Townsville, it is just a great Sunday morning drive. The market only new, but will be the place to be in 2008.
