The wholesale costs have increased significantly (from the manufacturer) as well as the transportation costs of getting them here. This combined will result in having to raise prices once the existing cups are sold as we are not in a position to absorb these increases any further. We do have a significant amount of cups in stock however there will be a change and felt it important to give fair warning to everyone. I know this does not help all the candlemakers trying to keep their businesses moving forward but is a sign of current times!!
