As most of you already know, I've been working very hard for the past few weeks on building a website.  I am so excited to tell you that it is now open for business!  It's been a painstaking process but every minute was worth it because the design and functionality of the site are exactly what I wanted. 

Grand Opening Sale

The Grand Opening Sale is only good on the website and cannot be used in the Etsy Shop.  However, any coupon codes that you may have that say they are good only in the Etsy Shop are now good on the new website as well AND you can combine them with the Grand Opening Sale to save even more!  Please note only one coupon code works on the website at a time.  

Also, I would like to point out that I currently only take Paypal on the website but if you want to pay by credit/debit card, you can do so from the Paypal page during checkout.  Instead of logging into your Paypal account, just scroll down a little and click that link that says "Don't have a Paypal account?" (see below)

And you can write up reviews and rate all of our products individually right on the site!  I really like this feature because nothing lets people know how a product performs better than having an actual customer who has bought and used it tell you!  Best of all you don't have to sift through hundreds of listings to find a review, they are right there on each individual product page underneath the title! 

A another key point I'd like to mention.  I will STILL refund any shipping over charges.  I'm working on figuring out the shipping calculator so that it will account for Flat Rate Envelopes and other bundled options. 

Also, in regards to the Etsy Shop, I will be keeping it open for at least the next week or so to make sure that the website is operating smoothly and working on any kinks that may be found but I do plan on closing it entirely by mid-September and I hope that you will all follow me over to the new website. 
Please contact me if you have any questions, concerns or problems using the new website or for any other reason! :)

Congratulations!! haha I didn't know you were going to close the Etsy shop, I somehow thought you were going to keep both open (because Etsy is so convenient, what with the feedback and all that).

The new review feature is great!!! and I love that we can make a wishlist, I'm going right now to make one. :)

Yay for 10$ off!!!

Thanks Pili and Denise!! I really love the look of the site and as I figure more things out will be improving it daily I'm sure! Yes, it's always been my intention to open a site and close Etsy but with the year being so busy I wasn't able to until now. I considered leaving Etsy open but managing to inventories is nightmare for me so this is the logical choice! The review feature was key for me. I think word of mouth is the best way for people to know how products/scent work and feel so that was a feature I absolutely HAD to have on the site! :)
