As many or some of you already know, a coffee shop in Citrus Park, Florida is gracious enough to allow me to sell my candles in their fine establishment. The name of the coffee shop is "Sips", and it is truly a wonderful place. The drinks are delicious, the staff is super friendly, and the atmosphere is quite cozy.
I approached them with my candles just before Halloween, and they were a big hit! So, the owner said I should make some for Christmas. I did, and I haven't been able to check on their progress yet, but hopefully they are just as big of a hit.
In the past, I have posted Christmas candles in my Etsy store for sale, but no one bought them. I'm still not really sure why - but it was a little discouraging because I always put a lot of time and thought and creativity into each candle that I design and make.
So...I figured that this year, I wouldn't let the past get me down, and I didn't want to deprive anyone of the Christmas candles I'd created just for the coffee shop.
I have now listed on my website
and in my Etsy store all the Christmas candles I created this year, but only have had on the shelves of Sips - until now! And I also tacked on a 20% discount coupon, since it's so close to Christmas. (Coupon code: XMAS20)
Hopefully those who do order my candles will enjoy them - my mother, my boyfriend, the fine people at Sips, the customers of Sips, and myself sure love them! :) And if orders are placed quickly, there's still time to get them before Christmas!
I appreciate everyone's support of my candles over the years, and I only hope to keep it growing. I couldn't have gotten this far without you guys. Thank you :) And I hope you will treat yourself to some of my Christmas candles - they're all made with love, especially for you ^_^
