Belle's Books & Candles was created in 2020 by the owner of Belle Regalia, a bookish jewellery store founded in Melbourne in 2014. The name is a play on the ritual of Bell, Book & Candle, that was used by Catholic priests in pronouncing "anathema" or major excommunication of those suspected of witchcraft. 

We're a bit more light-hearted here, and believe everyone deserves the opportunity to develop their literacy and self-care regimes with a good book and a beautiful candle.
