Buy Some Brotherly Love

Welcome Brotherly Love Creations to 23 North Centre Street, Merchantville. The Brotherly Love team started when Mike, the founder, lit a one of a kind candle that was shared between him and his late friend on one of his most difficult days during the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. It immediately cheered him up and even better - sparked an idea - that lead him to want to share this special and personal experience with others. His grass-roots start quickly picked up momentum from doing local pop up shops around Philadelphia. Their products, which bring the best of Philly to you, are clean, cruelty-free & vegan. Their soy wax candles are created with care for our customers and the environment. Shop hours: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 4:00-7:00 p.m. and Friday and Saturday from 11:00 a.m. - 7:00 p.m.
