Back by popular demand: The Nest stocks Owen Drew candles, a former Dock pop-up favourite

The Nest is now officially Liverpool city centre’s stockist for iconic Owen Drew Candles, adding more locally-produced goodies to its gift shopping selection. Seasoned Dock regulars will remember Owen Drew as one of our pop-ups on the Dock last Christmas and, as a result of the candles’ popularity, has now become a permanent fixture via The Nest.

Katherine Caldwell owns unique Liverpool shop The Nest and knows that shoppers at the Dock are looking for something good quality, handmade and a bit different – and that like-minded customers would prove a fans of the candles. She says: “Drew, the owner at Owen Drew, approached us a few months ago to see if we’d like to stock their candles. They still have people contacting them on a daily basis asking if their pop up at Albert Dock is still open! I saw how popular their shop was when it was here and became a customer myself during this time – the quality and fragrances were so impressive and they rivalled pricier candles that I’d bought previously. When Drew got in touch, it really was an obvious choice!”

Katherine knows that candles will prove the perfect purchase as we head into the cosiest months of the year, and was also impressed by Owen Drew’s high quality candles. Each of them is made from vegan soy wax with a soothing wooden crackling wick; they’re also hand-poured on Wirral, using only the finest essential oils, which makes them clean burning – so you don’t get any nasty soot forming and going into the atmosphere, or marking your walls.

All candles and sprays are beautifully-wrapped in branded bags, tissue and ribbon, making them an ideal gift for the festive season. If you’re heading along for some shopping in Liverpool, make sure you pay The Nest a visit!
