  1. No. I haven't tried any of CS' reformulated. Heard so many bad reviews from ya'all I don't want to waste my time and money. If I have to (basically) start over on the reformulated scents from CS, I figure I will look somewhere else and start over with them. Does anyone know of a good replacement for OM &A?
  2. I shipped an item on Dec 2 usps priority. from Northern Cal to Tucson AZ. It is not there yet! Last tracking update was Dec 6th. According to usps it "will arrive late" ya think?
  3. Hey ya all, I am trying to narrow down my suppliers to Aztec, NG and FB. Any good or decent choices for the following scents? Or somethin similar or close to? Any suggestions or thoughts appreciated. If its no good I wanna know that too. Thanks! vanilla cinnamon bun coconut lemon verbena pine?? gardenia green tea lavender honeysuckle rose sunflower sea/ocean lime/citrus
  4. @Lighten Up did you ever find a good substitute for CS' very vanilla? I'm so discouraged with them and their clean scents.
  5. Natures Garden 10% off Fragrance oils: BLACK2020
  6. SHOPPING CART Item Price Qty Total 8 oz. Candle Tin 12 pc Case $11.56 $11.56 Canary Yellow Dye Blocks 1 pc Block $1.19 $1.19 Navy Blue Dye Blocks 1 pc Block $0.96 $0.96 Red Dye Blocks 1 pc Block
  7. I think that is a good idea, start out with small quantity and figure costs. 10 pounds of wax, a dozen tins. CS is a good one stop shop. I can do a mock order for supplies and get total prices and shipping cost. Shipping costs will vary of course, I am on the west coast, so maybe someone on the other side of the country can do a mock order too so we can get a shipping cost range? I have to admit I've never even considered factoring in my time for sourcing, partly because I love to "shop" for FO's etc. But yeah, that is a LOT of time spent, and if I was paying an employee
  8. I love this idea! I know I need to raise my prices, but have been reluctant to do so. This exercise will help me "justify" . Can we start with a candle. then maybe a bar of soap?
  9. Just saw where Brambleberry is doing a sweepstakes thing on instagram instead of a sale.
  10. be sure and give us your website when you are up and running . I am always looking for suppliers on the west coast.
  11. I suspect we won't be seeing as many deals from suppliers this year. Anybody know of any yet?
  12. Those are beautiful! sorry I can't help you with suppliers.
  13. I've been doing the q-tips in a baggie, but never thought about putting them in a jar! Great idea!
  14. "it shrinks like a frightened turtle!" (sorry, I couldn't help myself) 🤣
