It's been an exciting week at the hive - a flurry of activity in the lead up to TEDxSydney AND we've negotiated new international shipping rates which finally make shipping Queen B candles around the world affordable. As I didn't want to crash the site, my clever web guy loaded the rates in a week ago and we've been doing testing for the past week... and reweighing every product so we can ship them as cheaply as possible. Interestingly, in the 5 days following the new rates being loaded we did as many international online sales as we did in the previous 12 months... just in case you were wondering whether we are genuinely impacted by shipping charges. In order to get these rates I've had to commit to spending $5,000 on international shipping (which is a fraction of what we spend domestically). So, it is a considered roll of the dice. If you have friends or family living overseas who you think may be interested, please pass on to them that our shipping rates are now about 1/3 of what they were. So, with no further ado, I declare Queen B open for business internationally... at far more appealing and competitive rates than we've ever been able to offer. The rates embedded in the website are exactly what we get charged. Best of all, in all those parcels already making their way across the world is a bulk box of our tealights to light up a wedding in Canada. You've seriously got to love that. ___________________________________________________________________ Queen B beeswax candles are made with 100% pure Australian beeswax, a pure cotton wick and copious amounts of hand made love.
