I finally just bit the bullet and opened the store. I may not be 100% prepared or ready, but I need to start selling soap instead of collecting them in my kitchen! Production lately has been a little slow due to me having a baby and all, and seeing as infants are a bit needy and tiring, I've been on "maternity leave". Additionally, owning a business that makes a product costs money, and as much as I would love to buy ALL THE THINGS to make this business successful, I'm trying to be responsible and conservative and not spend all our personal funds on the business. It's time that it started paying for itself!
The product line up is small, but again, so is my business, and my kitchen. I have featured the autumn-type scents but honestly, they're great all year long. I'll be back in the kitchen soon, I'm just trying to get the hang of this whole having an infant AND a toddler, on top of school aged kiddos.
Christmas scents will be cured by the end of this month and I hope to have them all on the website by November 1st. Supplies will be limited because market research wasn't optimistic about Christmas scents, but since I personally wanted a few select scents for my own home, I chose to make a few batches. Depending on how they sell this year will determine how much more, or less, I make next year.
Along with Christmas scented soaps, I should have some Lavender and Chamomile scented car soaps available, and maybe dinosaurs, by the first of November. Again, due to not being very familiar with what my customers will and won't buy, I'm having to test the market with small quantities and go from there when gauging how many need to be made in the future.
If you don't see a scent now, or in the future, that you would like, please let me know! I can either make you a custom order or, depending on the popularity, add it to the regular inventory. I'm always open to suggestions.
I'll try my hardest to stay on top of blog posts so that you will know what's coming and going, but you can also subscribe to the newsletter for monthly highlights and updates.
Well, that's all for now! Stay clean!
