Our Story

Rockport Candle Company was opened the summer of 2016 by friends who love Rockport and life by the sea. We felt that scented candles would be a beautiful way to recall and share memories of times spent on the coast. Our retail shop is located on picturesque Bearskin Neck in Rockport, Massachusetts, and all of our candles are made by hand by us here at our in-store candle studio. We also host events and offer our DIY Candle Bar experience.

If you're inspired by the sea... if coastal towns like Rockport have captured your heart... if you love high-quality, handcrafted soy candles... if you feel at home near the ocean... if you have fond memories of times spend by the sea... then you're a friend of ours. Please stop by and say hello!

Not sure which scents are for you? Contact Christina, our chief chandler (that's candle-maker!) for recommendations based on your likes and interests. She can also suggest candle fragrances which are sure to be well-received gifts for far-flung family and friends. CONTACT US today!
