Earlier in the month was National Entrepreneurship Week so we wanted to shout out these three small businesses in honor of it!
This Denver-based small business offers high-quality candles with natural ingredients. The candles are 100% soy wax with coconut oil, so you won’t have to worry about sensitivities or harsh chemicals. These candles come in a variety of aviation-themed smells such as “Jet Fuel in the Morning, “New Airplane Smell” and “Hangar Hangout” to transport you to the cockpit.
This company is based in Midland, Michigan, and owned by Chris, a pilot for a major US airline. It was created during the pandemic in 2020 when he was grounded for nine months. Chris and his kids wanted to create something that their community would enjoy. Chris combined his passion for baking and aviation to fulfill his dream of owning a small business.

Lastly, this Canada-based company repurposes aircraft parts, wood, metal, and automotive parts to create furniture. They offer one-of-a-kind pieces to add personality to any room.
