July 30, 2017 - garden totes

LAKE COMO, NJ — For Michelle Fontanez, it all started with a Crock-Pot in her kitchen. That’s where she done her initial collection of hand-poured soy candles scented with perfumed oils.

Little did she know 3 years later, she would spin that entrepreneurial examination into business success with a opening of Surf’s Up Candle’s sell store, located during 1703 Main Street in Lake Como.

During a grand opening jubilee on Jul 27, Fontanez and her staff greeted scarcely 200 guest who visited during a four-hour eventuality to suffer light refreshments and get their initial glance of a shop’s flourishing line of products.

Upon entering a creatively designed space, there is no evading a array of aromas emanating from a eco-friendly candles, bath bombs and other scented products that fill a store. From fruity and floral to a uninformed fragrances of a Jersey Shore, their names contend it all. There’s Citrus Splash, Apple Pie and Coconut Lime, Hyacinths, Sunflowers and English Garden, Beach Bum, Surf Wax and Deep Sea, usually to name a few. And Surf’s Up has not lost a holidays —one of a many renouned candle-giving seasons — with scents such as Gingerbread, Crackling Firewood and Mistletoe.

Fontanez has also ventured into other products, including motel-style keyrings, stickers and create-your-own permit image signs, and has complemented her sell line with equipment from other vendors, with such offerings as totes, pillows and wall art.

The store’s opening represents a verbatim break-out impulse for Surf’s Up, that has operated a medium room trickery during this plcae for several years before transforming a front of a building into a sell space. In further to a tiny pointer that still stays on a side of a exterior, a building’s front façade facilities a canopied storefront, confidant signage and French doors — all in bluish and white.

Fontanez credits her success in building her code not usually in a community, where she sells her products during internal present stores, flower shops and plantation markets, though by attending vital trade shows to foster her lines to retailers national and abroad. “Today, we’re in several thousand stores via a United States and in other countries, including Austria, Switzerland, Japan and France,” pronounced a Belmar resident.

While it’s been a whirlwind of success for a mom of four, it doesn’t delayed her down. Fontanez is now operative to move Surf’s Up signature scents to another product line – aroma diffusers.
