About Ava’s Country Cupboard
Hi! I’m Lindsey, owner of Ava’s Country Cupboard. I’m a wife, mother of 4, dog lover, and wax addict. I started under a different name in 2004, but quickly changed it to Ava’s Country Cupboard in 2005 when I was pregnant with my first daughter.
You guessed it – her name is Ava.
How Ava’s Started
Finding out about wax tarts and warmers, changed everything. I found tarts can fill a room – or two – with unbelievably yummy scents! They are just as good as candles, if not better. Plus they’re so much safer than candles.
After buying a few tarts that I loved, I decided to try my hand at making my own. And not to toot my own horn, but I was pretty good at it ;)
Making handmade wax tarts for my friends and family quickly became my new favorite thing, and brought me so much joy. Every special occasion someone was getting a bag of tarts. And I always received positive feedback.
People who didn’t know what they were started to go out and buy tart warmers – and tell their friends.
I realized I was on to something here. What started as a hobby, turned into much more. This is when Ava’s Country Cupboard was born.
Ava’s Country Cupboard Now
Fast forward sixteen years! After realizing I had a knack for making homemade wax tarts I became a full-time indie wax vendor. And now sometimes one or two of my children are helping me out!
Ava’s Country Cupboard has over 200 different blends of wax tarts. There are so many tart scents I ended up having to make my scent list in alphabetical order.
Anyone can find something that they love. Are you looking for...
✓ Bakery– Vanilla Bean Waffle cone is very popular!
✓ Seasonal– Fall Frosting or Christmas Cookies are some customer favorites!

I’ve learned a lot in the last sixteen years making handmade tarts. There were many trials of tart blends until I found the perfect mix. I use a custom paraffin and soy wax blend to give my tarts a better melt and longer throw. Throw is how strong the scent of the tart is if you’re new to the wax tart world.
In fact, customers have lost tarts, found them years later and they still smell amazing.
These wonderful handmade tarts come in a variety of shapes and sizes. For the smaller tarts (2oz), just throw them in your tart warmer. The larger tarts (2+ oz) can be cut into smaller pieces before putting them in your warmer. I offer a variety of sizes for you to enjoy and share with loved ones.
I love what I do – making different scent combinations come to life brings me so much joy. I also love it when I’m able to make my customers’ suggestions come to life!
