Much time has passed since we last blogged. So much has happened and there isn't enough time in the day to do all of it. Here's what's new...
1. By the Bay Botanicals has a new home at 7 East Main Street, Westminster, MD. Our Grand Opening was June 22, and was a big success. Granted we did have some computer burps in the first two hours but finally had that corrected before more customers came after 12 noon. Since the opening we have had many returned guests talking about how they loved their freebie candle and back for more or wanted to redeem coupons given out at the event.
2. We have a new employee - Crystal. She is our chief retail sales associate and store artist. Crystal, a Westminster native, has a lot to offer from an amazing creative talent in drawing, but shares our passion for our candles eager to share her own experience about the candles we offer and helpful for all who have questions. To boot she makes authentic dream catchers that we sell in our shop too!
3. We have two new candles - Westminster Candy Apple and Kentucky Vanilla Sunrise. While the Westminster Candy Apple candle is available on our website, the new Kentucky candle will be added shortly for all to purchase.
