Longtime local school staff launches new business at Mount Mars

Kendall and Brian Chandler have worked in the education field for many years - Kendall is a teacher at Barnardsville Primary School and Brian is the Principal at West Buncombe Primary School.  Kendall now owns Quill and Honey, named after the married couple's two youngest children.

Mars Hill – Mars Hill residents Kendall and Brian Chandler worked in local schools for many years, but are now transitioning into second act after retiring from education.

The Chandlers have a business in downtown Mars Hill, Quill and Honey that sells Kendall Chandler’s local natural home and body products, including homemade soap, and other local items from about a dozen local artisans.

Kendall Chandler will retire in June 2022 after teaching in Buncombe County schools for approximately 20 years. Her husband, Brian Chandler, was principal of West Buncombe Primary School, also retiring in 2022.

“Because he retired last year, we can do this together,” Chandler said. “It’s surreal and crazy and wonderful and I love it, but it’s never lived the way I expected it to be, but better. It’s amazing.”
