About Us

Located in the rustic charm of the New Jersey Pines, Home Matters has been providing its customers with an unforgettable shopping experience by offering superb service and the highest quality products since 1968. During the past 45+ years we have built a loyal customer following by providing a unique collection of Antique, Vintage & New Home Décor, Fashion accessories, inspirational gifts, Candles & Holiday Décor.

As each holiday season approaches, Home Matters is transformed by our creative staff into a magical getaway. There's always something new and exciting to see! Take a stroll along our garden path and enjoy our beautifully manicured grounds with a warm/cool beverage and snack in hand. Here, you will discover many more unique treasures! During the fall season we also offer beautiful mums, hay and pumpkins for purchase.

At Home Matters you will always be "welcomed" into our store and "thanked" for visiting. Making your shopping experience as enjoyable as possible is our main objective and we make every effort to meet or exceed customer expectations. Our creative staff is always on standby to customize a gift basket, tweak a floral arrangement or help cultivate an idea you may have. A purchase at Home Matters is not just a transaction … it is an experience you don't want to miss!

Frank and Nancy Seitz, the founders of Candle Factory Products (now known as Home Matters) cared about their customers just like they cared about their family and the community they lived in. Helping and caring for others were lifelong passions of Frank and Nancy. This caring tradition is now continued by the new owners of Home Matters, the new “husband and wife team” – Matt and Aleda Vogel, and Frank and Nancy’s son, Frank Seitz. At Home Matters, we believe that family and community are still the most important things in life and that where you live, how you live and with whom you live matters … your “home” matters!
