... of sheer, unadulterated pride today!

Recently I acquired a new wholesale account that for me was a really BIG deal! :) The store is a chain, and is in 4 states.. their first order was uhmm huge! So huge in fact, that it literally ran me out of my house, and I had to rent a place to make candles in order to get the order done on time.. it was just going to be a matter of time before this had to happen anyway, so not such a big deal, but that part of the story is a whole different thread lol.

I dropped the order on Monday at the store's main warehouse here in our town. I stopped by the store today to "visit the candles" hehe. WOW! What a cool experience this was for me. This may not be a big deal to a lot of you who have a ton of wholesale accounts, but standing there looking at the candles and realizing that they weren't only here, but in 10 other stores in 3 other states was such a great feeling! They are going on the front page of their Mother's Day full color 4 page insert ad which hits the newspaper on May 10th. I'm like a kid at Christmas.. so damned excited! Just wanted to share!

Congratulations!! That is very exciting! I understand exactly how you're feeling...I went out last week to deliver some candles to one of my accounts. The owner was so excited that she started telling one of her customers there to smell the candles, told her I was the lady that made them and the customer bought 3 pillars while I was standing there. THAT was cool...to see someone actually BUY them in a store!

So congrats again and best of luck! This is just a start for you...they'll start ordering even larger quantities soon!!

Prairie-

Congrats are most definitely in order!!! :highfive: Having a wholesale account is like an ultimate dream, a dream that I am surely not ready for, but a dream I am sure that you've been planning for awhile. Not only did you get to be on the cover of their magazine, your candles will be located in several other states. There's no looking back now, PrairieAnnie... but up, you're aiming for the stars now!!!:yay:

Good Luck!!!
