Thursday, December 23

Ho Ho Ho.....Merry Christmas! Just a few more days until the big "C"... wow. I'll bet the mall is a beehive of activity today. Glad I am done with my shopping!

As a reminder, Irvin's wax melters are still on sale both in store and online through December 24th; pricing as follows:

Mini Melters $15.00

Jumbo Melters $17.00

Oval Melters $19.00

Jar Melters $20.00

I am running low on a few designs in all four styles, so I will thank you in advance for your flexibility with substitutions. And due to the late date and our West Coast location, any online orders placed this week will very likely NOT make it to you before Christmas... please keep that in mind.

This year the Christmas goodies are going straight to 50% off, starting the week after Christmas. Since I do not have any consignment items this year, there are no exceptions to worry about! I'll be placing stickers showing the discount on all Christmas candle rings, cards, snowmen, Christmas candle scents, primitive and feather trees, etc. Technically, the sale pricing will run from Tuesday December 28th through Saturday January 8th but you might find a few bargains on Christmas Eve as well.

In other news, Bradley & Englert has decided to undergo a name change to "INDULGE." The owners of the shop feel it more accurately reflects the vibe there, and I am sure they will be getting their signage, business cards, etc. changed over in the coming weeks. Also a brief mention - there shouldn't be any variation of their hours on both Christmas Eve and New Years Eve, but if you are late heading out there on either of those days, feel free to call them at 541-747-3185.

Crossroads reed diffusers did not arrive as planned - sorry about that; we will shoot for January on those. If you were planning one as a Christmas gift, please consider purchasing a Gift Certificate from INDULGE. They do have them available in whatever denomination you choose, and the nice thing is that you can then redeem the gift cert. for any merchandise - you aren't just limited to The Buttermilk. I found that out this past week and thought it was good to know!

Back in stock and in store now are Carrot Cake wax cookie melts, Clove wax melts, and a large selection of Black Crow jar candles and room sprays. Coming soon will be Cinnamon Stix wax melts and the pretty Redwork Samplers as featured in one of my Country Sampler magazine ads last year. Web customers - I have not forgotten you and do still plan to send you a discount coupon to be used in 2011. Thank you for your patience during this transitional time for The Buttermilk.

Thank you all for your friendship, encouragement and loyalty in 2010. Till we meet again, MERRY CHRISTMAS to all AND a HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Sale on Irvin's Wax Melters - in store and online!

This is the biggest sale on Irvin's Wax Melters I've ever done.... so let the savings begin! From now through December 24th, ALL in stock Irvin's melters will be on sale as follows:

Mini Melters $15.00

Jumbo Melters $17.00

Oval Melters $19.00

Jar Melters $20.00

If you've ever tried a wax melter, you know that they are absolutely wonderful. Because the heat from the electric lightbulb melts the wax you place inside or on top of the melter, you can enjoy the fragrance of a candle without ever having to light one! No soot, mess or flame to worry about. And made in the good ole' USA to boot.

The sale prices apply to in-stock merchandise only - discount pricing does not apply to special orders. Sale prices valid both in store and online - online prices have been adjusted and are ready for you to order*. If you'd like to place an order and pick it up locally, please do so and select that option during the checkout process. I'm always happy to help in any way I can!

*Please note that because this sale is running both online and in store, your first choice may not be available at the time of order. If that is the case, I will notify you if your first choice is unavailable. However, I have lots of stock on these and it's very likely that I can fulfill your request!

Happy Holidays, one and all.

Friday, December 3

Well the transition is almost complete.... and things are looking so great at the new location! I snapped the above pictures when I was at at the new location yesterday.

I delivered votives to "B & E" (as I am calling it) as well as multiple jars of wax melts. Here is a fragrance list of what I have there now:

Votives ($2 each):
Orange Vanilla
Buttered Maple Syrup
Apple Bourbon
Orange Clove
Balsam Fir

Wax Melts ($1.50 each):
Orange Clove
Log Cabin
French Vanilla
Hazelnut Coffee
Buttered Maple Syrup
Cinnabun mini melts (pk of 10 / $4)
Candy Cane
Spice Stick - coming soon!
Brown Sugar - coming soon!

Wax 'Cookie' Melts ($2 each):
Lemon Cake
Christmas Cookie
Toasted Marshmallow
Carrot Cake - coming soon!
When you make your selections, you will notice white paper bags next to each display of 'wax.' Please utilize these paper bags for the appropriate 'wax' you are purchasing, so the staff at Bradley & Englert can properly ring in your selections.

Also back in stock is Buttered Maple Syrup in both the 16oz. and 26oz. jars. Anyone who has tried Buttered Maple knows it is simply the best out there. Over the next few weeks, I will be getting the Reed Diffusers back in, as well as a large re-order of both Black Crow jar candles as well as Goose Creek. This is the "candle time of year" and you won't be disappointed if you try any one of these fantastic candles! Don't forget that local customers may call me on the shop phone (541-998-1563) any time to pick up or have candles delivered. Email works too!

In other exciting (local) news, Ann at Emerald Valley Compounding Pharmacy here in Junction City is now carrying the Legacy line of greeting cards. I so enjoyed having these wonderful cards, but my new space was just not conducive to moving them there.... so Ann has picked up the line and has them available now. "EVCP" is located at 375 Holly St Junction City, and their hours are Mon - Thurs 9-5; Fri 9-4.

Speaking of cards, I just received a new shipment of the "Of Purpose and Spirit" cards, which are blank cards featuring beautiful photography of time worn, simple objects. There is a wide variety of Christmas images available at the new location.

Other new and recently restocked items are candy cane striped battery candles, regular battery candles, caramels in packs of 6, Holiday candle rings, cake candles in tin cans (so yummy!), gingham kraft gift wrap, a huge tin snowman cookie cutter, grubby tea light battery candles, assorted stockings made from coverlets, and much more for your Country, Holiday Home!

The next email I send will include information for the annual SALE on the always wonderful Irvin's wax melters... this sale will take place both online and in store. Details are coming soon so stay tuned! Happy December ya'll!
