Thanks for checking out North Ave Candles! I'm Amanda, the candlestick maker and creator of North Ave Candles. 

What started as a way to give personalized, homemade Christmas presents quickly turned into a passionate hobby and then a full time business shortly after the birth of my daughter. Our humble one-woman show has since evolved into a woman-owned + operated team-- and each candle is handcrafted by life-long candle lovers in our Pittsburgh studio.

We create each candle using old fashioned methods and premium ingredients, taking care that everything produced has an eco-friendly focus. Only the finest fragrance oils and natural waxes and wicks are used. Then they are hand-poured into small batches after meticulous testing to ensure that each candle is fragrant and clean burning. We specialize in clever candles for literature lovers!


Handcrafted in Pittsburgh since 2013.
