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!!
