Stacks of Wax – Newtown


I love the gentle light of candles and buy my candles from this wonderful small, special shop “Stacks of Wax” in Australia Street Newtown. Andrew the genial owner makes me handmade egg shaped candles infused with Sandlewood.

Established in 1992 it supplies Australia’s finest range of candles and candlemaking supplies. The village of Newtown encourages small artisans and specialized stores like no other. Yet another reason to stop WestConnex.

  1. Hi Lorrie,

    I am married to Andrew (of Stacks Of Wax) and am trying to help him stay afloat in these challenging times so are considering developing a website that can really show off his beautiful handmade candles to their best. I found these beautiful photos and was therefore wondering how you might feel about us using these as we have limited access to others and how we might be able to compensate you if you might consider this. Thanking you in advance for your time. Vey best wishes, Marion

  2. Thanks Lorrie, I had forgotten about this place and I love candles so I will check them out and buy from here – happy to support local artisans and good on you making that very valid point about WestConnex!

  3. Thanks Lorrie. Time to buy some more lovely fat and generous candles.

    And yes, imagine negotiating your way to Australia Street past 10s of 1000s of extra cars that have spewed out of WestConnex?
