WHAT ARE THE RECOMMENDED CARE INSTRUCTIONS TO KEEP A SENEGALESE BASKET CLEAN?
Please wipe the basket with a damp cloth. If you choose to use soap, please use it lightly to avoid saturating the basket and the stalks located inside the coils.
WHY ARE MY BASKETS NOT THE SAME SIZE AS ADVERTISED?
Our Wolof Weavers is a group that employs 100 highly skilled women in nine villages. If efforts to preserve this traditional technique, The Little Market has not requested standard sizing.
If you purchase two of the same basket, you might notice size variations. We do our best to make sure each basket is within the parameters of the size we advertise on our site. We hold our handmade products in the most high esteem and we hope that you enjoy these variations as much as we do.

We will always try to update shoppers as frequently as possible regarding new shipments. If a product is out of stock, you can sign up for the wait list on the product page to be notified as soon as it becomes available.
WHY DOES MY SOY BLEND CANDLE HAVE BUBBLES AROUND THE EDGES
Each candle is hand-poured in small batches using a clean-burning mixture of GMO-free, Kosher-certified, American-grown soy, and U.S. food-grade paraffin. When these candles are exposed to changes in temperature, sometimes the wax will pull away from the glass, while in other spots, it continues to adhere. This is commonly referred to as wax spots.
All waxes are affected by temperature, expanding when warmed and contracting when cold. The wax spots (or bubbles) most likely form when a shipment of candles travels in a cool shipping truck or a plane or is stored in a cool warehouse. Other companies hide these spots by adding ingredients that increase adhesion, whereas others mask the spots by using colored glass, opaque containers, or full-coverage labels. Since The Little Market's candles come in clear glass jars, these spots are even more visible. Once the candles have the opportunity to be lit, the wax will become warm and fully set into the glass jar again.
