Nonna's Grocer is a concept store creating candles for humans and their homes. The studio is inspired by our Great Grandparents who founded a local fruit shop in Daylesford, Victoria.  A teaspoon of locally made, a pinch of small scale and a touch of perfectly imperfect... you got yourself an object with the essence of ya’Nonna.


On that note, Nonna’s Grocer is inspired by family and run by family.

Madeleine Hoy (on left) founded Nonna’s Grocer amidst an ongoing battle with a chronic illness. She designed her way out of a 9-5 job as an event designer, and into a thriving design brand, where she can explore beauty and craftsmanship through object design at her own damn tempo. 

Isabel Hoy, her sister, jumped on board shortly after as co-owner.

Both sisters are passionate about good food, creativity and community.
