Couple open stunning new homeware and hand made candle shop named after their dogs

Nestled in rural Keelby is a brand-new chic and stylish boutique which offers homeware and candles galore.

Established by Benjamin Jerrard-Hattersley, Leya & Buster Candles provides primarily home fragrance products including candles, diffusers, room sprays and wax melts, along with gift items and home decor products.

After trading online and at markets and craft events since 2019, the opportunity finally arose for Benjamin to pursue his dream and set up a base for his home fragrance passion.

Together with husband Darren, Benjamin officially opened Leya & Buster Candles at 1 Yarborough Road in Keelby on Friday, March 4.

He told Grimsby Live: “Leya & Buster Candles started in early 2019. I had been making candles as a hobby for a long time before this as I just love everything home fragrance related, especially candles. I created my brand named after my two beautiful dogs Leya and Buster.

“During lockdown I was unable to do my other job as a hairdresser, so I used the opportunity to perfect and test my products to the highest standards. Then I started selling my products at markets and craft events and then I set up online and it has grown from there.

“I’m absolutely passionate about my candle business and the opportunity became available to have the unit in Keelby and I just went for it.

“There is nowhere else like it round here and a large proportion of my existing customer base are actually from this area or surrounding towns and villages.

It is a platform and a solid base for my business as well as for the online site. When it comes to home fragrance I feel there is only so much you can do online. People want to smell the products and get a feel for the brand which they can absolutely do in the shop.

“My main focus is home fragrance products such as candles, diffusers, melts, room sprays, hand and body wash, lotions and dog cologne. We have a selection of gift items, cards and some home decor pieces too. We’re next to Lilly’s Tea Rooms so it’s a nice little place to go for tea and cake and then have a little browse in the shop.

“All the home fragrance products are made in-house by myself or my husband sometimes, all with cruelty free ingredients and most are vegan too.

“We also have local crafters’ products featured in the shop too. At the moment we’ve got items by Nurtured by Nature and Pebble & Stone Pottery, and this will expand.

“It’s a perfect location to buy something special but also to support local small businesses in Lincolnshire too.”
