About Us


One of the UK's leading independent retailers specialising in Home Fragrance and decor accessories. Established in 1995 from a small shop in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, Bigwicks was purely a candle shop. As the business grew, we had to diversify, moving to a larger premises in Chesterfield and then in 2000 opening our second shop in Barnsley.

We have been selling Yankee Candles since it was first introduced into the UK and have watched it grow into the UK and World No.1 manufacturer of premium fragranced candles. Bigwicks now sell a wide range of homeware products and gifts, but always have home fragrance at the core.

In addition to Yankee Candles we now stock a wide variety of home fragrance products from Ashleigh & Burwood, Maison Berger, Madebyzen and Potters Crouch. As our website has grown we have added new and exciting products for the home, DCUK, Voyage Maison and most recently Dora Designs and Burgon & Ball. Our range of products is always changing, our expert buyers are always looking for new brands with exciting products that we can bring to the Bigwicks family.
