My cold took a terrible turn yesterday so I’m blogging today! Thankfully I the worst seems to be over for me- not so much my boyfriend. I hope he feels better soon! I can’t believe we’re both sick the week of our anniversary! Sharing is caring I guess?
I forgot to give everyone a "first year of business" update! Well, I've shipped over 100 orders (some were international!), and I've filled most of my US map! I was hoping to ship to all 50 in 2015 but I came very close! Hopefully 2016 will be the year of domestic sales to these other states! #TheBlackCurrant #Holiday #SmallBusiness #Etsy #USA #Map #Shipping #Orders #Packages
Let’s take a brief look back at 2015. I made a mini goal for my business to ship to all 50 states. It was a lofty goal that I certainly didn’t think I would come close to meeting in my first year of business. Turns out I’m pretty close! I’ve shipped to more than half the country in less than a year! But I’m still hoping to cover this map in green so if you know anyone in the white states spread the word! Maybe I’ll put out a promo code once my map is filled up! 😉
For more business related news I have some stock updates. Alpine Frost, my most popular male scent since Bonsai, is down to the last few bars! As of this post I only have 2 bars left and no plans to remake this scent until Fall/Winter 2016. With the Spring line coming closer and closer, I can’t keep restocking old scents! In fact, quite a few different scents are dwindling! New and old stock is starting to disappear…
Sorry for the lack of activity! I've been sick for the last few days and it looks like it will get worse before it gets better. On another note, I only have 1 Fresh Brewed Coffee wax tart left! It burns well on its own but pairs nicely with Chocolate and Vanilla scents! #TheBlackCurrant #Handmade #SmallBusiness #Etsy #Vegan #WaxTarts #FreshBrewedCoffee #Coffee
… Like Fresh Brewed Coffee! I only have 1 of the wax tarts left! I still have a handful of soaps left but many scents in both forms are in low stock! Examples include: Moroccan Mint (1 wax tart, 2 soaps), Peach Smoothie (2 soaps), Island Coconut (2 soaps) and Vanilla Bean (2 wax tarts, 3 soaps).
Depending on what old stock is left, we may or may not see some returns! Not that I’m worried about keeping the shop stocked: I have 90 different items listed!
