Pickerington business tempts you to ReWax and UnWined

TK Madison isn’t one to sit still — at least not for long.

With her second venture in Pickerington, the local entrepreneur continues to look for ways to bring relaxation and entertainment into the heart of the community.

In addition to helping raise her three children, AJ, 17, Kaela, 16, and Zion, 9, and being caretaker to her father, Donald Kelley, Madison also owns and operates Enhanced Brow n Lash Barn, 12975 Stonecreek Drive.

Yet she still wanted more.

In April, Madison embarked on a new entrepreneurial venture by opening ReWax and UnWened at 24 W. Columbus St. in Olde Pickerington Village. The 1,076-square-foot shop offers individuals or groups the opportunity to make candles and, if they wish, to bring their own wine to enjoy.

The company offers customers a private lounge that can be reserved for special events. Madison said she’s hosted a variety of gatherings in the space, from bridal showers and family reunions to birthday parties and bourbon tastings.

“For the community, any kind of school event, or even church event, or any kind of family event, or otherwise, I think we’re a good match,” Madison said. “We have the ability to host virtually any type of event.”

A Dayton native, Madison and her husband Anthony moved to Pickerington and the Longview Highlands area about five years ago. The move comes after Madison operated the Luxury Beauty Bar in Gahanna from 2016 to 2018 and moved the Enhanced Brow n Lash Bar from Easton to Pickerington in 2019.

Madison, 43, describes herself as a “serial entrepreneur.” Constantly looking for business opportunities, she believes that ReWax and UnWened and their private lounge give her the flexibility to be creative and help create events that everyone can enjoy.

“We are owned and operated by people who live in the community,” Madison said. “So we’re consistent with what Pickerington is looking for.”

Madison said the candle-making side of the store is set up for family members or groups of friends to spend an evening together and make candles, and for guests to meet new people.

Visitors are assigned a personal “mood specialist” who sets the tables and serves the drinks they have brought with them. Each guest can craft two complimentary 8 ounce candles.

ReWax and UnWened also provide every party with a sausage board and snacks.

“You would come because you want a different experience in Pickerington,” Madison said. “Maybe you want to talk to someone you’ve never met before. You want to make candles that not only smell good, but that you made yourself at a fraction of the cost of visiting a big store. Pick your own scents, you can customize them with different scents, herbs, and colors.

“If you’ve had a long week or are a teacher and want to get away with your friends, come to ReWax and UnWened. When you need a new date night with your husband or wife, come to ReWax and UnWeined. If you’re hanging out with your coworkers or your sister is in town, come join ReWax and UnWeined. It’s for everyone.”

Madison, the private lounge, offers space for people who have their own ideas for their gatherings, or it can serve as a hands-on organizer, helping them connect with caterers and others who help run the events.

“We host private parties, birthdays, bridal showers, family dinners where you want that space that makes you feel right at home,” Madison said. “We can accommodate up to 50 people inside, and outside we have a gazebo, tables, cornhole.”

Barlag said plans to bring in-house alcohol sales to the site will expand entertainment options in the area.

“[Madison]and her husband have created a beautiful and inviting space for gatherings, including a lighted courtyard, that is a hidden gem on Columbus Street,” Barlag said. “Their business goal of bringing alcohol sales to this neighborhood needs our support as it will enhance Olde Pickerington Village and bring more commerce to the area.”

Madison said she continues to envision how ReWax and UnWened can continue to evolve to serve the community.

This winter, she’s planning a Christmas Hop that will cross-promote other Olde Pickerington businesses, and she’s hoping to bring food trucks to gatherings like Ohio State University and high school football games.

“When you talk about the commitment and nurturing of these community relationships, I really want to give,” Madison said. “I don’t want to leave Pickerington. I’m here for the long haul. So I kind of wanted to put something in the ground that I knew was going to grow and grow and grow.

“I think there’s going to be a lot of opportunity that way because Olde Pickerington adapts to what the community is like. People want to do more down here. We really are coming into 2023 with our racing shoes.”
