Park Avenue was our home. It's where all the hopes and dreams for my children were nurtured. Big dreams of children being happy, loved, and growing up to be responsible, kind and successful adults. For Drew, it was not so easy. After many evaluations and visits with doctors, therapists, and neurological exams, we finally had a diagnoses at the age of 15. Drew has paranoid schizophrenia and it was rocking our world. Not in a good way. There were many battles ahead of us and we did not win them all. Finding a place for Drew to continue his education and live in a safe environment has proven to be a challenge. We , his loving family consisting of one father, one step father, 2 brothers, 2 sisters and myself,continue to provide Drew with the emotional and financial support he requires. He is one of the lucky ones. Too often those who suffer end up on the streets with no where to go. We will not let this happen to Drew.
Park Avenue Pieces became an outlet for me to create something beautiful out of something old and beaten. It gave me hope. Giving a second chance to these "things" in a way gave me a second chance. I had not always dealt with Drew's illness in the best way. As I said, my world was a rockin'. Then I decided to make something I had always loved. My own line of candles. I had dreams of teaching Drew how to make them so that one day he could run his own business, and that is still a goal of mine. We decided that we wanted to make good use of our abilities and so we made these wonderful soy wax candles and vowed to make contributions to a worthy cause in Drew's name. We choose NAMI since it had been my monthly support all these years.
I have met some pretty wonderful people since this journey began in 2017 and it is true. We are not alone. So many people suffer from mental illnesses such as bi-polar disorder, major depressive disorder and schizophrenia to name a few.So we continue to reach out to you and ask, will you help us shed light on this affliction?

Hi Kelly, this is Kim I met you on Sunday (10/21/18) I just wanted you to know I’m enjoying your scents, I love love love them lol they smell amazing, looking forward of purchasing more. I will be promoting your products for sure, it was very nice meeting you.. much success to you and family.
Drew’s Candle-Vanilla Hazelnut is everything I had hoped! The fragrance is like having a fresh cup of java on the countertop all day! It is mild enough to not interfere with my cooking and burns beautifully. I received it early with a nice Thank You note from the business owner in excellent safe packaging. I am ordering another one right away for a friends birthday. I also love that this purchase gives back to support Mental Health..it will be a top contender for many gifts to come. I highly recommend Park Avenue Pieces❤️
These candles are awesome! The smell fills the room without being too overwhelming! They seem to last a good amount of time too! Left burning for hours and there is a ton of time left!! Will be coming back for more!
