  • I have not personally tried it. My friend sells partylite. She is not really active anymore, she occasionally does a book show but that is about it. She said she is successful as long as she is doing parties but if not, she doesn't make very much money. She also said that if you are able to recruit people to sell partylite you make more money. I do have to admit that I love the candles and with Christmas just around the corner you may beable to make some decent money. But then again with the economy in such bad shape, you just never know. I hope you do well and I wish you luck:)

  • I did Partylite a couple months back and it wasnt worth it for me. The items are really expensive and couldnt get anyone to order or even book a show. I finally gave up- I figured that if I couldnt afford the products my self that its not right I represent them you know? They do have fantastic products though dont get me wrong but rather on the expensive side.

  • I sold it for about a month. Too much hassle and it is expensive. And personally i think their candles suck. They don't smell at all. I get better smelling candles at walmart or home interior.

  • I don't think so... their things might be nice but they're way overpriced, so no one I know buys them.

    If I were going to do one of those "party selling" businesses I'd do pampered chef because their things are actually really good quality, reasonable prices, and people get ADDICTED to them and become repeat buyers.
    Or tastefully simple, though I think their things are a little on the pricey end for what they are (though they're quite yummy!)

  • I almost tried partylite, but what bothered me is the price. I lived in an area where people just wouldn't spend that much money on their items. I went with Scentsy instead. I'm not longer with them, however I did make $800 with them, I paid $100 to become a constultant so it paid off.

  • Hi, I am glad to you have decided to take charge and go into business for yourself. I have been in business with my husband for 5 years and have made a success of it. One thing we do is educate people BEFORE they make the decision to start a Home Business. Many start with a Company because they think everyone loves candles or everyone will love the pots & pans.
    There are important things one should consider when choosing a business. I don't know why you chose Partylite and they do have nice things. But the most important thing is TREND!

    There is a book call The Wellness Revolution by Paul Zane Pilzer that explains it!
    Their are two videos I tell everyone to watch so they can better learn how to make the right decision. The videos do not speak of a certain Company. You can view them at

    Good luck to you!

  • I'm with a candle business. I made a list of things I wanted before selecting a company. I wanted an affordable and quality product. I wanted something unique, something where I didn't have to haul a lot of product, something with affordable shipping, something that would generate re-orders, and something that would allow me to sell online. The business supplies had to be very affordable too. Just some things to consider when looking at a business opportunity. Candles do sell.

    Good luck.
