I’ve been thinking about a strategy for selling the small number of remaining old style 34 ml bottles at the old price, and I’d like to work it into a blog drawing since I don’t have enough bottles to accommodate all the orders that would likely come in. I counted and only have 30 empty old style bottles left. If I put those up on the site, I’m afraid they’d be gone within an hour or two. It might be better to hold a drawing to give more people a chance. If it looks like there is a lot of interest, I could add 10 of the new bottles to give a total of 40 bottles at the old price, but let’s see how it goes.
I’m thinking people could post below and list one to three scents each that they’d like to order in the 34 ml old style. The choices are the Boutique scents: Incense Pure, Winter Woods, Tabac Aurea, and Rose Musc. We’ll make it simple and make it $55 for each of those. Then I’ll draw winners using random.org until all the bottles are gone. The winners of the drawing will be able to choose other items in any scents to add to their orders (1 ml and 2.5 ml samples, 5 ml purse sprays, 17 ml bottles). I’ll work through all these orders before opening the cart again. This will help take care of some of the pent-up orders and will make reopening less hectic. It will also finish the old bottle issue so that people will know how to plan future orders.
If this sounds like a good idea, you can post your entry into the drawing below and say which old style 34 ml $55 bottles you’re interested in (one, two, or three). If you have questions or suggestions you can post and we could fine-tune the plan before beginning; I could start a new post for the actual sign-up if needed. It will be a while longer before I can open, but I thought this would be a way I could distribute these remaining bottles and give people a chance at lower prices. I’m not sure how many bottles will be requested, so I’m testing the waters here. 🙂 I’ll leave the drawing open for about a week before picking the numbers. Meantime I’m open to suggestions, such as whether you prefer more winners with a limit of 2 bottles each or fewer winners with up to 3 bottles each.
I will also hold some drawings for free new style 34 ml bottles in the future when I introduce new scents. It will be a fun way to celebrate the new bottles and new releases. (It won’t be 30 to 40 bottles though — as much as I’d love to do that, I couldn’t afford to give away that many for free.)
I’ll try not to comment much below except to answer questions. lt will probably take me a week or two to work through the orders after the winners are picked since I’m not back to full speed with my wrists yet, but taking these special orders first will work much better for me. It should be fine as long as folks who sign up know the turn-around time won’t be quite as speedy as my usual.
