Milkhouse Candle Company

Founders Eric and Janet Sparrow, have created a candle with a cleaner, healthier candle burn. The Milkhouse blend of waxes is simple: pure beeswax and natural soy wax from soybeans grown right here in the Midwest. No artificial dyes are added and there is no lead in the wick. These candles provide a safe and clean-burning experience. They smell amazing!! At Rustic Roots, we believe in repurposing. If you bring your empty candle jar in cleaned out, we offer a 10% discount on a candle of the same size. We also host a monthly drawing for a free candle (1 entry per candle bought).

Mona B

Fashion that’s earth friendly! Waste not, is the concept behind Mona B. Why make new materials when there are interesting and perfectly usable fabrics that can be re-cycled or up-cycled. They go by the mantra that one persons trash is another persons treasure. Each bag tells a story about the individual journey the material has made traveling from place to place. They are mostly recycled tarps or tents that have been previously used and would otherwise be thrown away. They have been washed to bring new life with may resort in slight color discrepancies. The texture and material variations that are distinctive in recycled and hand crafted products make each bag unique. The story of these materials continues on and the next chapter is now for you to decide.

This company believes in giving back and making people happy. Every sock sold supports Doctors without Borders. Their out of the ordinary sock designs bring a FUN humor into Rustic Roots.
