Meet Gretchen Hollingsworth, Atlanta gal and the founder of Paddywax. For a girls’ night project with friends, she made a few of the candles, enjoyed the process and continued making them as a hobby. She moved to Atlanta to live near family and with that, she began making small batches of pillar candles, beautifully packaged – a signature element of the Paddywax brand, present from the beginning – to sell at craft fairs.
