View Full Version : I’m a newbie

I just received my display bag today and will be starting to sell asap. My mom and sister are going to have parties and I sent out an email to all my friends letting them know I'm good to go. I'm so excited to get started I can't sleep. I know I made the right decision when I brought my samples over my parents' house and my younger brothers were actually flipping over how real the candles smelled and they were going to tell their friends all about them. I know I'll have so many questions. I'm glad to be part of this elite group.


P.S. Where is everyone from? I'm in Massachusetts

Hi Ruth and welcome! :)I live in Huntsville Alabama. good old southern gal here.

PS Oliva, thats where my grandfather used to live at. So you are close to Johnson City right? I was born there, but didn't live there. ;)

Welcome Ruth! You'll find these ladies here sooo helpful! Please let us
know how your party goes. My Sister-in-Law is going to do one in a
couple weeks. I'll leave a display in her offiice (she does nails) and
she'll collect orders for 2 weeks. Most of her clients come every other
week, so this way everyone can see. I can't wait to see how it goes! I
sold other candles for years, so I'm so excited to see the response to
Mia Bella!

I'm in the Tampa, FL area.

Olivia & Frances, I grew up in SW Virginia, near the VA/TN line. My
sister was born at Johnson City Hosp (it was the nearest hosp that
could take her as she was very, very premature.)

Thanks for the warm welcome. I just can't stop smelling my scent samples. I'm not sure if I'll actually make any money because I want to buy so many scents for myself. lol. I have to stop calling them flavors but they smell so good. Ruth
