About Hometown Candle co. & Gifts
Reclaimed Heart was born in February 2015 as a creative and therapeutic outlet for owner Tina Richardson. After losing her mother unexpectedly in March 2014, Tina felt like her life needed more purpose. With encouragement from her woodworker husband Russ, Tina left her job in health care and began her exploratory journey in the arts. With a love for anything rustic and bringing new life to what some consider junk, Reclaimed Heart was born.
With Russ' help, Tina creates, repurposes and transforms rustic home décor and gifts. Showcasing her work in shops in Bothell, Monroe and Snohomish, WA since 2015, Tina and Russ took the leap and opened their own storefront in Arlington, WA in September 2017.
As their small business evolved, their line of hand-poured soy candles grew larger and became the focal point of the brick and mortar store. With that evolution came a rebranding in early 2019. Reclaimed Heart became Hometown Candle Company & Gifts.
Tina and Russ also welcomed a new member to their family in summer 2017, "Betty" the 1965 Jet Trailer. They are having a blast fixing her up and sharing her with fellow glampers at events throughout the Pacific Northwest.
