We have really enjoyed watching and pulling for the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers as they battle their way through the College World Series against powerhouse University of Arizona. Tonight is the championship game and it has all the indications to be a great game.
But win or lose, we are both so proud of Coastal and how well they have represented our state. In honor of them we are offering a special coupon from today until Saturday. Type in CWS (that stands for College World Series) in the coupon section at checkout and receive 20% off all orders!
I mentioned last week that we had some exciting news coming and we are finally ready to announce it.
Starting in July, Carolina Wren candles will be available in the South Carolina State Museum "Cotton Mill Exchange" gift shop! We are extremely excited and proud to be working with yet another state landmark. You may recall that last week we announced that you could find us at our state capital.
The gift shop will be carrying a variety of fragrances --- Apple Jack & Peel, Cashmere, Lavender and Campfire.
If a visit to the state house or the museum is on your list of things to do this summer, please go to the gift shop for a souvenir and show your support for local businesses.
We are...hand cut, hand poured, hand made.
Summer is finally here! (actually, it usually gets to South Carolina sometime around April.) It brings back memories of care-free days, playing outside with my brothers and sisters or a visiting cousin or friends.
One of my favorite things was to run through the clothes hanging on the line. The crispness of the cloth and wonderful scent of sunshine always made the day a little bit better.
To celebrate the 1st day of summer we are offering a special on our Clean Cotton candles, today and tomorrow. Enter the coupon code Summertime at checkout and receive an additional 10% off.
Today is bottle pick-up day! We get to collect our bottles from our participating restaurants on Mondays (because of their busy weekend) and Fridays (to get ready for their busy weekend).
These trips give us the opportunity to touch base with new friends and see how their week has been. Our partners always seem willing to take time to share and to allow us to share part of our lives in return. We learn about their families and friends and what's new in their business. They share ideas, recommendations and requests.
We also get to see what new inventory will be available for the coming weeks. We have our standards that we get every week, but invariably there will be a few different shapes and sizes that catch our attention and get us excited all over again. We have even had some customers request a candle be made from their own favorite bottle. If this is something you'd like, please contact us through our Contact page.
Unfortunately, we can't use all the bottles we collect. Sometimes they have an odd shape or maybe the putt is too large (that's the dimple in the bottom of the bottle). But don't worry - we take the ones we can't use and deliver them to the local recycling center so none of the bottles are wasted.
Please feel free to comment and/or share our blog and keep a look-out for some exciting news next week! Thanks again for all your support and until then we are... hand cut, hand poured, hand made.
