Today we would like to feature Deirdre Skiles of Detroit Rose, a candle and skincare brand based in Detroit, MI. We collaborated with Deirdre to make our T&B signature candle, which is a romantic blend of rose, cardamom, bergamot and amber. Join us at the Detroit Rose studio to hear the inspiration behind our candle, as well as tips for pouring your own candles at home.
Today I would like to take a bit of time to introduce myself! My name is Diana Marsh and I am the owner of T&B. Some things about me:
-I grew up in the Ann Arbor area and graduated from The University of Michigan in 2004.
-I Iived in Brooklyn, NY for 11 years, Carroll Gardens to be exact, where I was an elementary school teacher at PS 58. I have a Masters in Environmental Education and have a real love and appreciation for all things nature. I was the science teacher and started and ran our school garden.
-I always dreamed of opening a shop and exercising my creative muscles. Two years ago I decided to take that big jump, move back to Michigan and open a shop. I made the decision when I was visiting family over the Christmas holiday and stumbled upon a vacant storefront in Kerrytown. The tiny space was the perfect place to make my dream a reality. There is never a dull moment, and I am loving every second of it.
