To Sale or Not to Sale...That is the Question

I typically resist the usual "sales" in my little shop. 
However, I usually mark all inventory down in August. August  is simply too hot for all of my base oils and product. I  think of the summer clearance as "Christmas in August".
I have been toying with the idea of a monthly 'special'.
I invite your comments on this notion.
What do you do in your shop?
If you are a consumer, what draws you to a shop?
I created many new soaps before Christmas, as I like a good, long curing time - although that is not always possible with 'in-demand' soaps!
I am now thinking of some new strategies for 2011 (Can you believe it is going to be 2011?!).
Any thoughts, comments and suggestions are welcome!
As always.......thank you
I love our 'soap blog' community. 
I have found that most of my blog readers are more supportive, respectful and helpful than any of the soap forums.

December 18, 2010

I wanted to take a few minutes off from wrapping and packing orders to say "thank you" to all of my followers!
As the Solstice grows closer, my wishes for you are love, joy and true warmth of the heart.
Let each and every one of us continue to carry this transformational energy, lest we forget that the Holidays are not the only time to feel love, kindness and compassion.
We need to love and care for ourselves before we extend the same to others.
Warm Wishes for All of your Days!
Angelic Hugs!

Holiday Soaps on Sale!

I have caved to the pressure...but also mindful that many people's purses are not as full these - I am offering three (3) of my limited edition soaps at special prices.
Candy Cane Swirl
Candy Cane Swirl has a sweet scent of spearmint, vanilla and sweet orange essential oils. This soap and scent is one of my personal favorites! Now ON SALE in the Etsy Soap Shop until December 21, 2010.

Frankincense & Myrrh
The classic and timeless scent of Frankincense and Myrrh in a beautiful, swirled shea butter recipe! Now ON SALE in the Etsy Soap Shop until December 21, 2010. This scent is made with a combination of REAL frankincense and myrrh essential oils with added fragrance for staying power. 

Cedar Chest   
Cedar Chest is another shea butter recipe that smells exactly like Grandmother's cedar chest. The scent is extremely soft and great for men and women! The soap is beautiful, snowy white with delicate swirls of spices. Topped with Copper Penny mica, Cedar Chest is gorgeous! Now ON SALE in the Etsy Soap Shop until December 21, 2010.

I believe that these three soaps are some of my best creations! 

All three are limited editions.

In Peace, Truth and Beauty......
