Rewined is now sold in over 1500 stores in the U.S., and in 70+ stores internationally, but coming this fall you can find Rewined candles at Candlefish- a brick-and-motor candle shop brought to you by Adam Fetsch. The shop at 71 Wentworth street will carry Rewined candles along with 30 other carefully selected brands - including Candlefish's own line.
Want to support the local economy? This is the way to do it. Rewined was recently featured in the 2nd Annual Inc. Magazine Hire Power Awards recognizing the private businesses that have generated the most jobs in the past 3 years (2010-2013).
