Fall season starting

The Leavenworth County Fair in Tonganoxie gets us ready for the fall season and we're working our new candles, new looks and restocking what is low.
Thank you to those who came to our booth and those who purchased. We hope you enjoy your products.
We have restocked some candles: Drakkar™, Love Spell™, Lavender, Lilac, Sweet Pea™, Red Clove, Mulled Cider, Basil Sage and Mint and Tiger Eyes.

In incense (expected arrival Sept. 1): Drakkar™, Merlin's Forest (new), Strawberry Musk, Jasmine, Witches Brew (new) and some others will be coming soon.

In lip balm: Margarita and Peach Daiquiri are back in stock. Witches Brew and Pumpkin Pie will among the fall flavors returning.

Bath bombs: Ever popular were these gems this past week. We're working as fast as possible to get Lavender and Lilac into stock. We will be restocking Misbehavin', Pretty, Sandalwood Rose, Karma Chameleon, Goddess and Tahiti Temptation quickly. Also coming back will be Kai™, Kimono, Pure Seduction™, Queen Bee and several newer ones as long as the strength holds up in our hands.

Soap: We're dangerously low on Patchouli and a batch will be finished Monday night. We're a little behind on Apple Jack, Cranberry Citrus and we're hoping to add Snow Queen, Raspberry Patchouli and a few others. We ran out of a key ingredient that just arrived, so it will be 4-6 weeks before these soaps will be ready. We will announce them on the site.

New this week in candles will be Marigold Mint and Merlin's Forest. Merlin won't debut till Wednesday at the latest. Marigold we'll be offering in light and dark. You got a preview picture at the opening of this thread.

We will be restocking Patchouli after Merlin and promise to get Driftwood back in stock as well as Lustful Thoughts to go with some newer fragrances.

Hot Summer Nights sale near!

Now that vacations are out of the way, it's time to get down to some serious summer enjoyment.

The heat is back and while we've been around, we're kicking into gear.

Starting Wednesday, we're discounting everything in our online store by 20% to kick off a Hot Summer Nights sale that won't end till midnight Sept. 20, 2009 (the last breath of summer, according to the calendar.)

But to still encourage you to stretch your legs and enjoy some fresh air, we're also adding an coupon online that you'll need to print and can bring with you to our shows for the remainder of the year to get 10% off your purchases in our booth. With that said, how will this affect the stimulus package for those who are members? In person, it doesn't. It means you'll get 25% off if you use the coupon and present your card. Now, that's savings.

Online, it's a different story. It has taken me a long time to try to figure out how two codes can be used on our site without redoing all the pages. No matter what I've tried, it hasn't worked, so that's why the sale has been mighty slow in coming. The easiest alternative is for us to reimburse you the additional 10% off your purchase and that's what we're going to do. You will need to include your Stimulus Package code in your Paypal payments to get it and you will get the discount.

Most summer sales seem to last a few weeks, but this one will be going down to the last tick of summer -- ending midnight Sept. 20. The sale will be good for all items that are in stock. When something is gone, it's gone.

Turn around time, that is processing, packaging and mailing your package, may require up to three to five days, especially if you're ordering bath bombs or candles in the 3x6 and higher range. We don't keep a healthy stock of that size because we simply don't have the room.

There are no new soaps on the rack right now. Give me this weekend to get the fall and winter lines going.

We're looking forward to seeing many of you throughout the show season.
