We’ve been open for over a month now and it’s time for some updates, introductions, and explanations. Let’s jump right in!
Same Poison Apple, New Owner
First off for those who didn’t know, Poison Apple Apothecary changed owners in May of 2014. My name is Jessica and I am thrilled to be able to continue the PA legacy. As soon as I found out that Angela was willing sell I knew that I’d be perfect to take over and make sure customers get their fix of amazing products. I am the mother of four and the wife of a documentary film maker. I’ve been a teacher, photographer, video producer, and jack of all trades in my husband’s company. I have a wildly creative mind and support system that is unrivaled, this is how I am able to do so many things and do them well.
New Look, New Shopping Experience
We spent the summer perfecting the branding of the company. For anyone with a small business you know how vital this is to success. It was worth the wait to have everything perfect, including a proprietary website. This brings me to my next point, Etsy. Many customers wonder why we aren’t there anymore. The answer is simple and complicated. We love and appreciate all that Etsy has to offer, it’s where we got our start. The goal of every business is to grow and expand and having our site allows us to do that. We are able to reach more customers, accept more payment forms and communicate more clearly. You will only find our perfume oils on Etsy for a while but our full product line will live here at www.poisonappleapothecary.com.
Where’s My Favorite Scent?
This is a question I get A LOT! To clarify I promise I am not holding any old favorites hostage. When the company was purchased I only got the formulations of the most current line. Anything that was sold prior to this no longer exists. I assure you that before a scent is discontinued it is carefully considered. If a product isn’t selling we are unable to continue carrying it. As I said before we plan to expand and grow, many more exciting things are to come, stay tuned!
* Be on the lookout for a very special Valentine’s Day cross promotion with two very special vendors. Details to come soon. Sign up for our mailing list for the latest details!
* A new scent (or two) will be debuting in March. I have been wearing the latest formulation and absolutely love it. This is an unexpected combination that I simply adore. Description to come soon...
* We offer corporate gifting and wholesale opportunities. Just think of the creative ways you could share Poison Apple Apothecary with your friends, family, and co-workers. Soon we’ll dedicate an entire post to this but in the meantime if you have any questions or ideas please e mail me at email@example.com
