Invitation for Wholesale Buyers

This Charming Candy is excited to participate in the Wholesale event at Urban Craft Uprising this Friday! If you're a buyer who's registered to shop at the show, I’ll be in booth #28 so please stop by to chat in person. I’ll have some flavor samples to share with buyers and an exciting gift set collaboration with Sweet Anthem Handmade Perfumes to show & tell you about, called Flower + Sugar.

Flower + Sugar gift sets are handsomely packaged,
and their contents smell and taste amazing!

More importantly I’d just like have an opportunity to hear about what you’re seeking for your shop. If I can help you connect with other producers I know, I'd be glad to do so. See you Friday, and if you're not able to attend, you can always contact us at thischarmingcandy [at] to inquire about wholesale accounts.

Hexagon Candy Gems are here...

You asked, we listened: would we ever sell our flavors in individual pieces instead of on a stick? You told us that you crave candy during the workday, but not all workplaces are appropriate for having a lollipop stick in your mouth. You told us that our gems are super cute (naturally we agreed).

This spring, we finally took the time to figure out if it's feasible with our handmade methods, and decided that it was. Announcing: hexagon gems! These are the same pieces we use as flavor samples with your orders today, but with more pieces in each little zip bag.

It took some research and testing to figure out the perfect package to deliver them to you. One brave customer up in Alberta (you know who you are!) volunteered to battle-test our ideas, for which we're very grateful. Your gems will be packed in a cute and sturdy pillow box that's approximately 3 x 5 x 1 inches. It's perfect for tossing in your messenger bag, your airplane carry-on, and your secret candy drawer at work.

Currently we're offering one flavor in each pillow box, but soon we hope to offer flavor duos and trios. If the flavor you want isn't available right now, just let us know and we'll tell you when we plan to have it in stock.

If you're in the Seattle area, order on Zaarly and you'll get free delivery to your door!
Outside Seattle, we ship worldwide from our Etsy shop as usual!

Finally, a big thank you to everyone who's ever requested these. You're our inspiration.
