Sixteen-year-old Mike Kittredge, too broke to buy his mother a present, melts some crayons to create a homemade candle. A neighbor takes an interest and wants one of her own. With that small stake, Mike buys enough wax to make two candles — one for his mom, and another to sell.
Soon after Mike begins to design and handcraft candles in his family's kitchen. With his father's help, he opens a small retail shop — which will eventually lead to hundreds of retail stores and over 35,000 authorized retailers worldwide.
