Seconds Sale

Purchase a $20 Early Bird ticket to be the first to shop our aesthetically flawed candles, discontinued scents, and limited edition vessels (we call these Seconds!). 

What's a Second?

A second is a not-quite-right candle that we aren't able to sell at full-price. They are still beautiful, useful, functional, and safe. There are so many reasons a candle can be a second—the wick may have set a little wonky and off-center, the scent may have been discontinued by our supplier or our creative team, or the vessels were used for a special occasion and we have extras!

Because we value sustainability and limiting the waste we produce at Hummingbird, we want these candles to have a second life, even if they aren't up to our aesthetic standards. 

A $20 early access ticket will grant you 24 hour early access to shop the sale before the general public and get first dibs on your favorite scents and whatever other treasures you can discover. In honor of April being Autism Acceptance Month, the full cost of your ticket goes directly to support The Channing's Joy Foundation, an organization dedicated to promoting Autism acceptance  and inclusion of all people with support needs. ALL proceeds go to support families of children with special needs and/or organizations whose mission is to promote inclusion. Donations go to help these families afford therapy and other resources.

After the first 24 hours have elapsed, the sale will be a free for all until ALL items have sold.

Hummingbird Candle Co. aims to use our power, resources, and platform to build impactful relationships with organizations in our local North Carolina community that are supporting women and families. 

A number of the women who work to create the candles and experiences that make Hummingbird the place to celebrate are mothers of Autistic children. We are working on an individual level to create a world that empowers and supports our children and are thankful to be a part of a small business that sees this value and wants to put their resources behind the things that are important to the women of Hummingbird!
