LuminousBoutique Posted December 14, 2009 Report Share Posted December 14, 2009 I decided to start selling my candles this year at the farmers market - (I've really been lazy about it in the past because selling both candles and B&B requires registering twice. blah, lol) So feeling confident in my candles now and hoping to make some more money this summer.. I'm going for it. My only concern is that my booth, while shaded by my canopy, gets HOT. I live in Utah and an average summer day for us is anywhere between 85 -105 degrees; and is most often on the higher side of that. I've never had my candles outside for long periods of time, and never in the daytime/summer. I pour 8oz square masons and 7.5oz straight sided glass tumblers. Anyone have any experience with setting up outside in the heat and having problems? I dont really know how to test this because my oven wont go lower than 170. I could pop a heater in a room and try to get it to 105 for 6-8 hours just to see what might happen (and I'll likely do this) but without the filtered sunlight added in I think my results would be skewed anyways. I'm anticipating that maybe there would be some sweating, or pulling away from the sides of the jar? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
