Sporting a new business brings with it many daunting challenges. Finding just the right article to make available to your customers requires continuous research. All the hidden costs need to be taken into consideration in order to offer the article at a price the customer can afford and would choose to pay.
Much of our research lately has been involved with the category of quality bath robes. Finding a vendor who carries a brand name quality bath robe and at a reasonable cost is first and foremost these days. After all our mission statement says it well; Quality Merchandise at a Fair Price.
We work for you “The Customer”. Check us out!
Judi and I both enjoy camping. Our favorite place to go, of late, is New England. Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine call to us often.
One of our trips took us to Vermont. There we stayed at a campsite called Horseshoe Acres. Nice people run the place and they were so kind and helpful to us. Actually, the way we happened upon the community was quite by accident. Our ancient 1988, “Minnie Winne” was being a little contrary to all those hills we chose to drive up and over. Just what you need when your on vacation, right?
We just happened to mention our dilemma and asked if there was a service near by that we could trust our motor home to for repairs. Well they were so nice and made a couple phone calls. Next thing we knew we had an appointment for the next morning to have it repaired, and very economically I might add. We are not likely to forget those folks up there in Vermont at Horseshoe Acres.
Finding nice people, good service, and economy makes for a good experience. Just like shopping to save money and yet purchase that gift set/basket as a token of thanks to good folks.
When it comes to enjoying the Summer season, a quick and spontaneous adventure is always a delight. Just to drop everything and get away for an unplanned day trip of sight seeing can be an enjoyable, and memorable time together.
We all have favorite places we love to visit again and again. Perhaps it is the park in the village green, or maybe run over to that quaint seaside vista where we can view moored boats and mingle with the other passers-by.
This would be relatively easy enough to accomplish spontaneously, including bringing along a picnic lunch we could savor in the shady glen or park. We’ll use the Picnic Backpack we recently acquired as a gift from our friends. The lunch will fit nicely inside and there are place settings for four, as well as a thermos pocket. Best of all, it goes with us easily as we trek to that special spot. Very outdoorsy. Very chic.
GO FOR IT!
History has shown that ancient Egyptians were noted for using fragrant oils from plants for religious rituals, and embalming rites. As time progressed, they continued to refine their use of these oils in medicine, cosmetics, and perfumes.
Modern research to date is limited on the scientific effects of aromatherapy. Yet, these limited studies have shown that aromatherapy may have health benefits, for:
1) Relief from anxiety, stress, and depression,
2) Improved quality of life, especially for sufferers of chronic health conditions.
Aromatherapy is thought to affect smell and skin receptors, which send messages through the nervous system to the brain; the part that controls the emotions. (the limbic system) The “Plant and Fruit Oils” used in aromatherapy are extracted from selected plants and fruits, and are then distilled, where they become highly concentrated oils. These oils are known as “Essential Oils”.
Through the use of various diffusers they can permeate our living atmosphere. They can be released through the burning of scented candles. They may also be applied to the skin as in lotions, bath oils or bath salts. Even without our knowing we enjoy these scents at the holidays, in our soaps and shampoos, when bathing, or when applying those skin lotions after a refreshing shower.
