First and foremost, I would like to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! I hope you have a wonderful day and have many, many reasons to be thankful! That brings me to my next point, this year I am truly thankful for my job and all of the amazing people I have met in the past year! I feel very blessed to have been able to take on the STW line and begin some new product adventures and NON of this would have been possible without all of you! You all stuck with me through the mind changing and organizing and computer problems I've had this year and for that I could not be more grateful!! SO, my sincerest Thanks go to you!
OK - now on to the fun, not so mushy stuff! This years Black Friday - Cyber Monday event begins this evening (Thursday 11/22) at 11:00pm CST and runs through 10:00pm CST on Monday 11/26! I will post the code tonight on Facebook, here on the blog, through Twitter and of course in the Etsy shop. It will give you 15% off all in stock products!!
During the sale, I will not be able to take reserved listings or custom orders due to the limited quantities of each product, it will be on a first come, first serve basis. I will be adding things and relisting items as my supply inventory allows. So, if something you wanted sold out, check back through out the weekend and if it is restocked, grab it up and I will combine shipping for all your orders and refund any shipping over charges like always!!
All orders from this sale will begin shipping Monday so I'll be able to go through all of them and check for multiple orders, however if you do make multiple orders, it would help me out a lot if you add a note in the message box during checkout! :)
If you have any questions, you can always contact me through Etsy or my e-mail at ShopRachelRene@aol.com or even through Facebook and Twitter!
Do you need another reason why our Vegan Deodorant Sticks are amazing? Well, here's one I completely failed to tell you about!
I use a bio-based propylene glycol which is typically derived from soy bean or corn!
The manufactorer creates a renewable, biobased propylene glycol that meets USP and USDA Certified Biobased Product Label standards. It has also earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label, ensuring the product contains 100% biobased content.
This particular propylene glycol has been utilized in our deodorant since December 2011.
I've received notice yesterday and today that some of my suppliers are unable to fill certain product orders due to their manufacturers being affected by Hurricane Sandy. Some are without power still and cannot fill/process supply orders at all.
I do not know how long it will be before they are back up and running and shipping supplies to my suppliers or even what ingredients/supplies will be out of stock yet. I have been told that numerous fragrances *MAY* run out of stock and could be out of stock for quite some time.
One product for sure that will not be making it's debut on the 12th is the Bubble Bars I have been raving about for weeks. I'm told that the ingredients I ordered last week will not be arriving until the 14th at the earliest. So, unfortunately, it will be around the the 21st -25th before Bubble Bars are listed in the shop :(
As for fragrances, I cannot order them from anyone else as they are not all created equal. I do have a enough for now but I'm not sure how long they will last or if they do run out, when they will be back in stock.
I'm giving everyone a heads up that it could be weeks before things get moving again so if there is a particular scent that you are almost out of or were thinking of ordering, you may want to grab it now while it is in stock.
I will be going through the site this evening and pulling any items that are not physically in stock right now as well as posting any that are in stock and not listed.
I apologize for future delays this may cause but I've been assured that once things are back to normal, all supplies will be available again.
Thanks everyone and while this may be a bump in the road I'm grateful that the suppliers I use gave me a heads up and were not more harshly affected by the storms!
