Chandelle Galerie's shop in Hyde Park will close its doors!
Very regretfully, Mel & David will close their candle shop in Hyde Park on 31st January 2017.
After trading for more than 9 years, the last 2.5 years as Chandelle Galerie, Mel & David recently announced the decision to close the doors of their beloved candle shop, citing financial (rising rental costs, import costs, production costs) and health issues, as reasons for closing.
Mel & David wish to advise customers that their beautiful 'environmentally friendly' candles will still be available online.
After being inundated with requests for the Chandelle Galerie Candle School to continue, Mel & David will operate the school from their 20-acre property at Kangarilla. They are now busy establishing a training facility and will resume candle making classes in a revised (and very exciting) format in April 2017 - stay tuned for candle class dates.
Mel & David are looking forward to the joys of semi-retirement while continuing to share their passion for candle making with students from all over Australia, and even further afield!

Well, we've done it! After 12 months of searching for a place to live where we could undertake candle production on site, we finally moved into our new home. It has great storage SHEDS and a temperature controlled warehouse for candle making. It's also located in stunningly picturesque Kangarilla in South Australia. Read Newsletter

Well, maybe it's not the worlds "largest" candle, but as a candle artisan Mel loves to push boundaries, so I thought you might like to see her latest creation. It's 10cm wide x 70cm high candle and its bigger than the collection of elephants we have at home! Scented with the tropical fragrances of freshly cracked coconut and hints of a boozy pineapple cocktail it will take you back to a sunny holiday on a tropical beach in Thailand! Read Newsletter
We are very proud to have Chandelle's Candle School featured in SA LIFE magazine, December 2014 edition, titled: The butcher, the baker, and the candlestick maker, which promotes Mel, our shop and growing candle school.
The Cuban Government adheres to strong socialist principles in organising its state-controlled economy. It provides very basic health care and education and hands out monthly rations of food staples to its citizens, but to exist, all Cubans must work. Cubans are paid similar wages regardless of what they do, so it’s not uncommon to see experienced doctors, engineers, scientists and other professionals working in restaurants or as taxi drivers. Why does this happen – because in Cuba “all people are equal”!
How does this relate to candles?
