‘First-of-its-kind’ new business opening in Downtown Tiffin




TIFFIN, OH — Debuting during the 2019 Downtown Chocolate Walk, Simply Susan’s and Tiffin Candle Company have partnered to for a first-of-its-kind in Tiffin experience-based business at the store, 70 S. Washington St.

Wax Lab is an extension of Tiffin Candle Company’s offerings, allowing people to pour their own candles from a variety of scents and even create a custom label.

Prices start at $22, and appointments can be made in advance by contacting Simply Susan’s and walk-ins are welcome. The process to pour the candle takes about a half hour to 45 minutes and it takes about an hour to 90 minutes to cure, during which time people can explore the downtown or come back the next day to pick up their product. Wax Lab is to be available for events such as birthday and bachelorette parties.

“This is another great activity for people to check out in downtown Tiffin,” said Susan Wilkinson, owner of Simply Susan’s. “Come check it out and see all that there is going on here in downtown.”

Chelsea Bilger, owner of Tiffin Candle Company, said she’s excited for this next chapter of the business. Tiffin Candle Company has been in operation for about a year and has expanded to Fostoria, Findlay and Lakeside. “This has been such a fun experience, so I’m excited for Wax Lab to take off next.”

The Wax Lab will be on display during the chocolate walk, and officially opens for business Sunday, March 31. Plans include seasonal scents and incorporating with other events in downtown including Third Thursdays.

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz congratulated Bilger and Wilkinson. “It is great to see local businesses expanding and offering new, inventive ideas in our downtown,” he said.
