A few updates

As you may have noticed, many of the new fall scents are up. The remainder will be up by Tuesday. Halloween scents will be making their debut towards the 3rd week of September. Old fall favorites have returned as well. You may have also noticed some of the oldie but goodie products are listed with our old business name labels, Haus of Haunt. Unfortunately, the other night as I was taking photos, I dropped my beloved Canon 60D. While the camera survived just fine, my lens did not. My precious macro lens broke into pieces and my heart just sank. I shed a few tears, picked it up and showed my husband what happened. It is beyond repair and now I have to purchase another. My favorite camera store is nearly 45 minutes away and I have yet the time to go. But lucky me, my beloved husband has gone on his merry way to rescue the day! So those photos will be updated shortly. Yay!

Now, for the turn around time. The holiday season has officially begun, at least it seems so. More orders are coming in from both sites and so TAT has slowed down just a tad. Everything is taking 5-7 business days. I am trying to convo and email each person that places an order with an estimated ship date as orders come in. If you did not get an email or convo with your TAT, please contact me. Sometimes I am not online until the end of the day so that I can just process orders. So if you convo me or email me, please give me 24-48 hours to respond. 99.999% of the time I respond the same day. 

I also have another etsy shop/website as mentioned before, where I bake gluten free, paleo and primal baked goods. Usually my Sundays as well as Monday mornings involve baking. Business for this is beginning to pick up as well, thus another reason for my 5-7 turn around time. If you should ever need an order rushed, please contact me, there is a small fee for rushed orders, but we can do it. :-)

Vacation/Holiday schedule. Please take note of the recently posted Vacation/Holiday schedule. I know it is the worst time of year to take a vacation, November is anyhow, but I had no choice. I know, pull my arm right? Well, yes actually. Earlier this year my husband and I boarded a plane for Europe for a lovely vacation, nearly half ways to the next airport for a change of planes, I fell very ill and once we landed was spending a lovely night in the ER. Long story short, trip canceled and the ONLY time the airlines (don't you just love the airlines?) would give us a new flight schedule was for November. Otherwise, we had to wait until Spring of next year and my beloved husband could wait no longer, poor guy. Just lovely!! I was so upset that we had to go during the busiest time of year. So please, please bare with me as I will be working in overdrive during this time. I have enlisted the help of my family, as usual so we will move as quickly as we can! :-) Usually, worst case scenario for turn around time is posted and we can get orders out quicker than estimated. 

Also, in October I have to take another trip. This one is back east and consists of both pleasure and business for my husbands work. Again, we will be working in overdrive to get all orders out as quickly as possible for you. Especially with the holiday season coming.

Now, for the much anticipated soy wax tarts! These will be offered for a VERY limited time and in limited scents. Some scents offered will be some of the holiday scents I offer, plus a few others that will NOT be available in any other product but soy wax tarts. These will be launched by the end of the month. Everything will be a first come, first serve basis. All tarts will be made in advance and sold by limited inventory. Once gone, they will not be making any return and inventory will not be replenished.

New perfumes are coming in the next week as well. These too will be first come first serve as inventory will be limited. These scents will not be offered in perfume petite sizes.

Bathory will be making a return as soon as the weather cools down. It seems as though Fall will never come in my neck of the woods with this dreaded heat wave. Hopefully sometime in October, otherwise they will have to wait until November. These are very delicate in-the-shower body butters which can melt easily. I will announce when they are available.

Other than all that...I hope everyone has a fabulous day!
