About Vermont HoneyLights

Vermont HoneyLights (Bonita Bedard & Shawna Sherwin) opened our first retail store in 2000 in a barn just outside of town in Bristol, VT and soon re-located to Downtown Bristol’s Main Street.

At Vermont HoneyLights we are all about recycling, re-purposing and the usefulness of stuff. When we first learned about beeswax and the importance of honeybees in our society we knew that we had to do our part to ensure their survival. We developed a line of 100% pure beeswax candles that are hand-molded and poured by us in our shop.

The process begins with us making the mold and ends with a practical and useful candle that burns beautifully. We also love to sew and paint and find inspiration in antiques. Our store carries an ever changing selection of trendy vintage furnishings and other US made accessories, body care and home decor, as well as, our complete line of 100% hand-molded and poured beeswax candles.


You can even sneak a peak into our workshop while browsing. We are always happy to share with you everything we know about beeswax and honeybees and answer any questions.
