I also think I got into a shipping frenzy with a friend and I shipped out a couple of orders with the perfumes requested on the orders. However, later a couple of clients asked for something completely different. I do try to accommodate changes whenever I can and I am sorry if I ignored your requests. Didn't do it on purpose. I can't really expect my help to read all the posts made, they are good at plowing onwards. So, sorry sweeties. :hrt::

ROFL I just sent you a request last minute. No worries if you already sent mine. It's just one of those things. Besides, I can always gift my sample to someone. :hug:

I am starting to run out of the samples from Yule 2015. If you are interested, you should grab your fill now because I am through decanting for Yule. :snow:

In case you had not heard, there will be a price increase by the USPS on the 17th of January. My shipping software will be reflecting this change automatically. Alas, alack. But it's still the cheapest way to ship. :maily: Here are the details:

Some of the expected USPS rate changes include:

The First-Class Package weight limit will be increased from 13 to 15.9999 ounces.
First-Class Package rates will see an average increase of 12.8%.
Priority Mail rates will see an average increase of 9.4%.
Priority Mail Express rates will see an average increase of 15.6%.
Parcel Select Non-Presort will now be called Parcel Select Ground.
Priority Mail Regional Rate Box C will be discontinued.

Please note that starting on Monday, the USPS will be raising their rates considerably. Unfortunately, just about everything I ship is going to have to increase in the price paid for shipping. But please remember that USPS is still the cheapest way to get your Possets to you. Also, Monday is a Postal Holiday, it's Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Mail will flow out of Possets promptly on Tuesday as usual.

I hate having to say this but the greatly beloved Lavender Corset is endangered. I have a very few bottles left and then she is gone. Ingredient issues again. :cry:

Same goes for Hot Cross Buns. :cry:

I second that it must be hard! As in every beginning, there is an ending. And every ending is some beginning's end. It's sad but I know from past experience, that it only makes you more creative, in finding a way to put the old into the new in some form or fashion. :hug: They never truly die, but come back as something else. Like Theodora becoming Mona Lisa.

Well, it's that time of year! It's St. Fabian's Day and time to celebrate for 24 hours only, with the superb blend of saintly goodness which will tempt you sorely: rose, two ambers, and a small amount of incense in the background! I love this blend and have been known to sneak a bit off season. Get it while you can, it is going to be gone on January 21.

Ooooh, sorely tempted by Fabian as I've missed a year of ordering and we just bought a house and I kind of need a celebratory treat! (Other than, you know, owning a house! ;)). Off to check out the reviews!
