  • If you have nothing illuminating to say, don't say anything at all

    I've had a rule at Queen B for the past decade which is that having access to someone's inbox is a privilege and if I don't have anything befitting that privilege to say, then I stay quiet.  It seems to breach every currently practiced law of marketing, but then again I've always marched to the beat of my own drum... Funny, I just caught myself out...  I was about to say "I don't like to follow rules" but if you saw the list of rules that I live my life by you'd laugh.  Let's just say that my rules are a bit different to normal business rules!

    So, why the blog post then?  Two reasons... firstly, the volume of emails and calls from you guys checking in to see whether I was OK has been escalating! (heartening to know you care).  Secondly, we've been doing a big clean up from last year and "Second's World" at the hive is full and needs emptying.  And that means there are some bargains to be had.

    Here's a list of what we've got going (on a first come, first served basis):

    You know what else I've realised in writing this post?... I've actually missed it.  You know how when a loved one has been away for a while and you're a little anxious about their return?  Will it be the same?  Will they still like me?  (does my bottom look big in this?!)

    Sure, I promise (again) to only write when I feel I have something interesting and/or edifying and/or relevant to say BUT in truth I think I was just having a bit of trouble getting back on this horse.  Now that I'm here, I'm wondering what I've been fussing over.  It's great to be back.  May 2014 be happy, healthy, fun, filled with laughter and may it be filled with the beautiful light that nature provided for us in the guise of beeswax candles.

    (Belated) happy new year loved ones.

  • Buy 3, get 1 free

    So, we tried crowdsourcing which I would say was a moderate success, and now we'll try bulk discounts... as in, we will buy our most popular holders in bulk on your behalf and then hand on the savings (plus some in this case) to you.  What we need to do is get our turnover up by around 50% in a viable way.  Ie yes I do realise that if I halved the price of all the candles we'd probably get turnover up by 300% but we'd also be out of business in weeks.  So, we need to find another way of doing it!

    We recently scored a bit of a deal on the beautiful porcelain dome holders that fly off our shelves. So we bought our two favourite designs in bulk and thought we'd pass on the savings to you. Here's the deal:

    * the porcelain domes usually RRP for $24.95 for 36 hours only if you buy 3 we'll send you 1 for free... that's 25% off. That means you'll have 4 gifts for under $20 each in the cupboard. Bargain.

    You get to choose between the Filigree Dragonfly with tealights or without tealights or the Cherry Blossom with tealights or without tealights.



    You also get to choose whether to buy WITH a box of 4-5 hr tealights to go with each tealight holder, or WITHOUT the tealights. If you purchase with the tealights, the same buy 3 get 1 free offer applies for the next 36 hours. We have NEVER done 25% off tealights ever before so get in fast!

    This offer expires at 8am on Wednesday, 18th April 2011 so we can get the orders shipped prior to Easter.

    Queen B beeswax candles are made with 100% pure Australian beeswax a pure cotton wick and copious amounts of hand made love. We stock beautiful and stylish candle holders, personalised candles, votive candles and pillar candles that nourish the human spirit and our environment.
