Just for Schvitz & Giggles
Inspired by a love of old-world-meets-new and a reverence for Jewish grandmothers everywhere, each piece in Candleschtick’s collection highlights an original design—then kitsches it up a notch. Our clothing and tchotchkes bring humor with a touch of nostalgia to delight the modern soul.
Bubbie would approve.
Kibitz (Yiddish): \ˈki-bəts\ To Chat
Just like our grandmas would say. How many of these words do you know?
What's Our Schtick?
In 2020, three friends, inspired by our grandmothers’ wit and wisdom, decided that the world could use a little more Yiddish humor. We sought to reconnect with traditions-past in a fun and modern way. We grew up with grandparents who shared old-country recipes, whispered “kinehora” after kvelling, and hosted epic family gatherings for holidays and beyond. Many of these tradition-keepers have passed, but they are fondly remembered, along with their humor, charm, and delicious apple cakes.
No Yiddish? No problem. We celebrate “Yinglish” - and love words with an absurd number of consonants! Schtick around. We'd love you to join in the fun...and the occasional matzoh ball soup tribute art.
