Changes and gearing up for holiday season
Here at Anderson Soap Company, we strive to provide exceptional service, ship your items as quick as humanly possible, and attempt to keep our shop stocked with every item made as humanly possible for us. In the past, we had tracked our inventory per sale and if something went into "negative" on my inventory sheet, then we would have to make it to successfully fill an order. Moving forward, we will only be selling what we have made and producing what has to be made, so we can streamline our packing and shipping a bit more. The positives is I will be a more sane person, the negatives is some of you may have to wait a little bit for me to make the items you wish to purchase. I am still going to do custom orders until I come to a point where I have to shut it down until after the holidays.
Okay enough with all of that mumble jumble... Lets get to the good part.
Holiday soaps & scents are coming! Lots of limited editions!
Portland customers can enjoy a new variety of whipped soaps available at the Pearl Whole foods we delivered our second order today! Also a new shop on Fremont will be carrying Anderson Soap Company, the shop is called Sugar Me its a natural hair removal boutique (1313 NE Fremont).
Last month we were contacted to make 1000 soap snapshots for a movie premier party. We had a pretty fun time doing it, even though when we started, it was in a bit of a heat wave up here in Portland. Well it took us about 2 weeks to do it, only because we took some days off and had a little help and on top of filling orders. Hopefully some of my snapshots get noticed by alot of people! We have to wait to give more details until they have a premier party date then we will share pictures and info on the movie :)
We have just started to roll out some Room Sprays in a larger size than before and liquid soaps are made labeled and waiting to photographed so they will be coming shortly! Also I am going to be discontinuing some of my items, not the really popular one, but some slow movers and then start adding some new awesome stuff!
Lastly, we are moving again by February. We just have to do it, because our setup in the current house isn't really practical when you have a 3 and 4 year old craving attention 24/7, so we will be looking avidly for the perfect place to move so we can be better and more on top of things for you.
