Launching My Own Etsy shop (1 Year Blogiversary)

Monday, 1 January 2018

So has you probably saw, yesterday I suddenly dropped the news that I'm opening my own candle store called Taken Moons. I only told a couple of people and my family so for everyone else, surprise!

Since it was quite out of the blue, I thought I would put together a little post to give you all of the information you might need. The support yesterday was really amazing and I couldn't be more grateful to each and every one of you.

My shop will be officially opening the end of January on the 31st, this is so I can finish designing the last few of my release day candles and get the labels ordered etc. When I open I am hoping that there will be six to eight unique designs available, one of which is the Jurassic Park candle I announced yesterday.

I will be slowly revealing the labels and scents of these candles over the next couple of weeks and there will be another giveaway coming soon.

For anyone who has ordered the 'Into The Jungle' Wildest Dreams Book Box you will be getting a 10% off discount code that you can use on your first order, these codes will be active from January 31st until March 1st, so save them until pay day but don't wait too long! 

I want to host a rep search in the next few weeks, I have a couple of candles to give out to friends too, so don't worry if you see some folk taking photos and sharing my candles -you haven't missed out on anything.

The candles themselves are around 6.7 ounces, the jars state six as this will always be the minimum, but to protect the wick from getting lost in the pour, the candles remain less than 7 ounces. Some of the scents work simply when the lid is off, some require burning to smell them in the air and some scents are stronger than others. All candles are hand poured so results can vary, but if you burn an even layer at a time you should have no problems. There will be more technical information on my Etsy shop at a later date.

Each candle will be £8 and there are a couple of choices for postage, again this will be on my store information at the end of the month. I have considered selling cheaper candles with slight imperfections but I'll announce this officially closer to the time.

And that's everything! I just want to thank everyone again for their kind words and support, especially to Zoe for inspiring me and to Aimee for always cheering me on. Thank you girls!

Today also marks my one year of blogging, so thank you for sticking with me for a whole year <3
