How It All Began

The vision for Bookmarksical began when owner/crafter, Amy O'Connor, decided she wanted a cute shop like the heroines in her favorite cozy mystery books. While she still doesn't have a brick & mortar shop (some day!) she's thrilled to offer her candles here at Bookmarksical.net and at various businesses & craft shows in the Central Pennsylvania area.

Combining her love of candles and murder mysteries, Amy opened Bookmarksical in late 2019. Her small candle business features hand poured soy candles and wax melts with unique scents and names teeming with cozy mystery charm.

Her customers enjoy browsing scents like In Cold Blood Orange, Seaside Alibis, Trick or Treason, and Irish Coffee Conspiracy. And of course, since Bookmarksical's candles have #scentstodiefor it's hard to pick just one!
