Happy June!

For my June promotion — enter to win a $25 gift certificate to my Etsy shop!

It’s so easy to enter, and no purchase necessary. Just send an email to orders@savorsoap.com with your favorite scent. The subject of the email needs to read “My Favorite Scent” in order to qualify. Please be sure it is exact, as I am going to filter all the results automatically to a folder! One entry per address please.

I will choose four random winners and send an email to you if you’ve won. Deadline is Friday, June 3 at midnight Eastern US time (New York/Etsy time).

If you don’t want to enter via email, there will be a space on my Savor facebook page shortly and you can leave your entry there instead.

Canada Post
If Canada Post goes on strike, as may happen June 2, I’ll be temporarily suspending shipments to Canada until the strike is resolved. Other countries will not be affected.

Savor November Newsletter: Savor Saver Time!

Black Saturday: Savor Saver

SATURDAY, November 27th, please join me at http://savor.etsy.com for a fantastic Savor Saver sale!

Beginning at 10 am Eastern Time (aka “Etsy time”) and lasting until “whenever” there will be wonderful deals on goodies of all kinds in my soap shop. Limited editions, old favorites, and current stock might be featured as a Savor Saver. They’ll all be very clearly marked and in the Black Saturday section.

1-3 items will be posted approximately each hour. I have no set finish time but it’ll probably wrap up around 5 pm Eastern.

I will be listing high quantities of items. However, the items still sell out EXTREMELY fast. Often under two minutes! You must checkout quick to secure your purchase. No reservations are possible. You are welcome to buy more than one of any item, but please leave some for the other shoppers too.

Many treats will be created ESPECIALLY for the event and might be exclusive and never offered again!

WHERE TO JOIN IN: I’ll start a forum thread on Etsy and link to it from my shop, so we can all chat while the sale is ongoing. I won’t be able to read or answer everything posted in the thread so if you need to reach me during the sale please send me a direct note! Other sellers might post their sales in our thread. If you aren’t interested just don’t respond – since it’s an open forum I can’t make it exclusive to us.

SHIPPING: Each item will have a shipping fee attached. US: $1, Canada: $1.50 and Everywhere else: $3. If you wind up paying too much in shipping cost I’ll send a refund after totaling all of your purchases. Regular items will have regular shipping prices attached.

All shipments will be sent out on DECEMBER 2.

PAYMENT: All purchases must be paid for at the time of sale. Checkout won’t be complete until payment is submitted, since Etsy has revamped their shopping cart system. No coupon codes needed!

SWAPPING: Unfortunately I cannot swap or trade items between customers this year so please choose carefully! All sales are final.

Holiday and Vacation News

The Savor November Newsletter will be going out soon so please sign up on Savor if you would like to receive it, I’ll also try to post it here on The Cookbook.

Here’s a link to last year’s Savor Saver event! There will be some wonderful handmade soaps and whips and goodies for you this year. All the details will be written up in my November Newsletter — start time, shipping details, etc.

And one last goodie — Etsy has introduced coupon codes. Yay! I will be posting codes from time-to-time on Savor’s Facebook page, or tucked into your order, or other little places. They are so easy to use, just plunk the code in during checkout and you’ll get an automatic adjustment, no need for a refund or invoice. It will show you exactly how much you’re saving! The code works on anything in the shop and you can re-use it as long as I have it activated.

Savor’s June Newsletter

New Arrivals!

Happy June, my friends!

I’m writing with extremely exciting news — I’ve been bursting to tell you all, I’m going to have a baby this summer! I am due at the end of July with our first, and she’s a cute and sweet little girl :) YAY!

Yes, this is why I’ve had to slow down the shop over the past months — so much to do around the house! I have been quite fortunate that I’ve been quite healthy and mobile the whole pregnancy, but I did have to cut back on my working hours. Manuel has been an awesome help but he has taken another job for the summer — and he suggested his fiancee Abby as his replacement! She’s been wrapping soap for me the past couple weeks and she’s simply wonderful. She’ll hopefully continue to help me after the baby arrives, so that I can keep the shop open as much as possible.

So — there may be a last-minute shop closure coming up soon, I will try to make sure all orders are taken care of as speedily as possible. Mike can take over shipping for me as needed.

And now for this month’s sale — I’m listing sets of baby/child-friendly gentle soaps! The sets are being sold at a wonderful discount (just $18 for five bars!). The scents are RANDOM but the listing contains more details. Check it
out here!

One last note, I’d love to have you as a facebook fan!

Savor April Newsletter

Upcoming Vacation Dates!

Hi friends! Happy New Year! My neglected blog is getting an update today :)

I’ve marked some upcoming vacation dates on my Savor calendar. My friend Ronald has pretty much finished the structure of my newly redone website, I think it turned out so pretty! We tried to make sure it looks lovely on all browsers. Currently you can’t shop directly on the website but I plan to open a shop there in the future and sell directly from the site.

While Savor is on vacation, you can always shop online with these wonderful ladies — The Soapbox Co and Faery’s Muse.

If you’re a retailer interested in wholesale with Savor, I’ll eventually place a password-protected file here for you (just contact me for the password). Right now I’m handling by email at orders@savorsoap.com.

Here’s to a lovely 2010 for everyone!

SATURDAY, January 16, I will be discounting all 8 oz Creme Fraiche jars to $8! The discount will be already built-in to the price so there will be no need to ask for a refund or custom listing, you can just browse and choose at your leisure! We’ll be busy restocking scents and creating new CFs this weekend. The sale will last until Friday, January 22.

Please note that this discount cannot be combined with any other specials and cannot be applied to past purchases.

Original price of the 8 oz jars is $11, so they’re just a dollar an ounce during the sale! :)

Black Saturday: Savor Saver

SATURDAY, November 28th, please join me at http://savor.etsy.com for a fantastic Savor Saver sale!

Beginning at 9:30 am PT and lasting until “whenever” there will be wonderful deals on sets and singles in my soap shop. Limited editions, old favorites, current stock, all manner of different goodies might be featured as a Savor Saver. They’ll all be very clearly marked!

Items will be posted approximately each hour. I have no set number of items and no set finish time.

As we did last time, I’ll start a forum thread on Etsy and link to it from my shop, so we can all chat while the sale is ongoing. For those with allergies, I will post an ingredients list before posting the special item, so that you can see if you wanna participate.

I will be listing high quantities of items. However, the items still sell out EXTREMELY fast. Often under two minutes. You must checkout quick to secure your purchase. No reservations are possible. You are welcome to buy more than one of any item, but please leave some for the other shoppers too :)

Many treats will be created ESPECIALLY for the event and might be exclusive and never offered again!

SHIPPING: Shipping has always been the toughest thing to juggle with these sales, as Etsy calculates it so strangely. So — this year, I will be invoicing for shipping **after** you are done shopping. This means that the Savor Saver items will temporarily be set to $0 in shipping cost (regular items will be set with regular rates). You should pay for your purchases when you check out, and once you are all set, just convo me and let me know. I will, of course, do flat rate shipping if that saves you money!

Because of the high volume of parcels after a Savor Saver event, please know that it will take approximately 5 days for me to ship out all orders.

Questions can be asked in the comments here! I will answer anything that I can. Updates will be posted to the blog if I need to make any announcements.

One last thing!!

YES YES YES: I’m happy to hold orders placed now until after the sale, if you wanted to save on shipping.
