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.
