This is the story of a rollercoaster… not the Luna Park kind, the emotional kind. Small business is kind of like that.
About 6 weeks ago, shortly after I had launched the Bee Lights, I gave some seconds to one of our lovers who happens to be a metal spinner. I gave him my usual spiel about putting them in “anything”… apples, small vessels, sweet potatoes… you know the deal. I had no ulterior motive. Promise.
Four days later he walked in with the first iteration of Mini-Marilyn.
Guess where I was on the rollercoaster at that stage? No prizes. OK, so I seriously need to get a life, but I was ecstatic.
Remember when you finished school?… I was happier
Remember your first kiss?… I was weaker at the knees
Remember the first song that made you cry… I was more emotional
Yes, I worry me too.
Anyway, so we need to deal with the bottom of the roller-coaster.
As is so often the case with manufacturing in Australia and using quality materials, when push came to shove, we just couldn’t make the pricing work. I wasn’t going to be able to sell them at a price that I found palatable.
Which brings us to today’s special offer.
Clever Queen B lover during the testing phase delivered me a bag of 50 brass and then 50 nickle plated “Mini-Marilyn” Bee Light holders. That means we have 25 pairs of each (actually it is only 20 because I am keeping 10 of each for myself and the Queen B museum & dowry. That’s all… in this design. We have other designs on the way.
So, if you love our Bee Lights (and personally I think they are my best work yet) and you aren’t into fruit or vegetable holders, then grab yourself a pair before they all go. They are being sold at the never to be repeated price of $25 per pair.
And please take a photograph and email it to me. I love seeing our candle living their destiny.
Queen B beeswax candles are made with 100% pure Australian beeswax a pure cotton wick and copious amounts of hand made love. We stock beautiful and stylish candle holders, personalised candles, votive candles and pillar candles that nourish the human spirit and our environment.
