  1. I am looking for frosted jars in 3 different sizes. Ones that can take a screw on cap. I ordered from SKS, and now they cant deleiver for 10 days, becuase I ordered too many (10 cases...hey whatever) so I need to find somewhere else. Any thoughts?
  2. I think it was sold to some lady named Anne...sorry thats all i know...Im not really helping
  3. I did email one of the owners, as I talked to them before many times over the years. It was read...but no response
  4. Has customer service dissapeared because of online websites. I called a vendor today and they are always helpful. I order in bulk and my item is not on the website, as they custom make them for me. They informed me I HAVE to order on the website of my order can take 2 weeks because they only have a person come in 2 days a week to enter orders! WTH!!! I've never heard of this. I said, well i will order somewhere else then! How sad!

    Do they sell? I really don't know of anyone using or even making them. I need something new to my line, Im so bored with candles. Im country/prim so thinking this is not my thing, but maybe there is something to this. Thoughts?
  6. Just an FYI out there for anyone looking for the colored mason jars, Tractor Supply had them for 7.99 on clearance!
  7. I use vintage props, anything odd i can find the better!
  8. its spam... the main way to tell between real and fake is normal people dont talk like that!
  9. thats one of the ways, you can also get a mold that makes them or drill it out.
  10. My minimum is $200. However my direct competitors offer anywhere from $50-$300. For me, anything under $100 costs me too many administrative costs. Every company is different, so you need to find what comfortable for you. I have a very large and complex line, so to have a small minimum would not work well for me, if you have only a few options, $100 is typically the average in the gift industry.
  11. in tutorials, I have some basic Q&A....wholesale is all I do. 1500 accounts and counting...
  12. Blogs Facebook Twitter Myspace(coming back?) Instagram Pinterest youtube Foursquare Goolgle + Linkdin and more Im so over this social media crap.....as soon as you get somewhere on one of them, another one pops up! my goal is to blog and tweet and instagram more often and get some youtube videos up.....maybe I will have time in 2015, by then it will be something else new.
  13. great ideas! Ill be working on my new website and promote that! Also, going to try Pinterest and Amazon. Hoping there will be no slow season!
  14. We are suppose to get paid doing this? LOL Your price structure should include cost, overhead , and profit. The profit is where your pay should be. However as we all know, we end up blowing that for more supplies
  15. I do a handful of retail shows for publicity reasons or for favors and not neccesarily to make money, although I always do as I choose shows wisely. I line item my booth fees as advertising and its an overall cost of busienss like electric, w/s, insurance, etc. Sometimes shows can vary due to weather /economy so not sure how breaking it down per candle would make any sense, you should look at it year end, but evaluate your shows based on sales whether to do them again or not. Not sure of that makes sense...it does to me
