It Can Happen To You


It's OK To Be A Product Junkie
Product Body

The shop has been opened now for three months and we are still fairly slow, but we are now getting "regulars" and they come often. A lot of our online customers have become addicts and now I see it's happening right here in Jupiter. Women come in to the shop with a sense of urgency, walk over to the shelves nervously twiddling their fingers, looking for their "junkie" product in their favorite scent and when they find it, you can see their body change shape... there is a release of tension and nervous energy as they hold the jar tight.

I keep getting questions like, "this will remain a permanent scent in your line, right?" or "is this soap one of your signature ones? You will always have this available, right? I don't think I can live without it."

I am honored that people like the products and I am doubly thrilled that the soaps are such a big hit here. I can't make some of the soaps fast enough. I am getting soap requests and I am up for the challenge. In the meantime, spas are loving our Creme Fresh and saying their staff AND customers are flipping over it and the jars are flying off the shelves. Again, one of the spa owners (my customer) feels a bit like a drug dealer because people come to her frantic when the spa gets low on inventory. "When are you going to get more?.... I can't run out...."

It's better to be a Product junkie than any other kind of junkie, so yay to that.

Come to the shop if you are close. First sample is free...

Joanna, I am obsessed with Crush on You in Lemon and SLD, but I cannot justify replenishing until I am no longer unemployed. I am rationing my last bit of SLD Crush on You and pounding the pavement - hopefully I'll find a job before my current stash runs out! Now if that's not motivation, I don't know what is! Food? Rent? Bills? PRODUCT BODY! Priorities, people... ;-)
