About Us

Luxurious + clean fragrance for a happy home.  

Thank you for your interest in Truck & Barter! I first started pouring candles in our tiny studio apartment in New Orleans almost 10 years ago. What started out as a hobby quickly developed into a little side business. At that time we owned a general store called Homestead. I started selling my candles in the shop and they quickly sold out. I really started falling in love with the process of mixing scents, discovering new vessels, wax and wicks and finding the perfect balance between them all. 

Since I first began, many things in my life have changed! My husband and I moved back to my hometown of Petaluma, California in beautiful wine country. We have taken the candle production to a new level and are excited to offer our products wholesale. If you are interested in becoming a retailer, please sign up using the form on the WHOLESALE page. We now have two little boys who keep me very busy! They are my reason for doing everything I do. I want them to see that with hard work and never ending perseverance, you can achieve anything you can dream up. 

Thank you for supporting our business, we really appreciate you!
