Change To Future Arcana New Collection Releases

Hello! How is everyone doing this morning? It’s beautiful here in the lovely Pacific Northwest and I hope to get out and enjoy it later today. I wanted to take a moment and give you an update on future Arcana restocks. I have gotten some feedback that people were disappointed in the speedy sell out of this latest Arcana release and you know what? I totally and completely 100% agree with you.

Dash-one of the reasons I need Carpet Afterlife in my world!
Dash!

The reception of this release took me (and Julia) completely by surprise. When I first opened The Rhinestone Housewife, I used to buy 3-5 bottles of each scent and those would hang around forever. lol  Needless to say that is no longer the case and I’m the first to admit that I was unprepared to deal with that sort of demand. I made the largest stock order I’d ever made in the history of The Rhinestone Housewife and assumed that would be plenty. Twenty to thirty bottles of each scent? No problem, I thought! Well you guys took that stock and ran away with it. I’m honored and delighted to see Arcana doing so well but it also created some irritation from customers that had difficulty getting what they wanted. And I wanted to say, that I hear you. We’ll be making some changes with the soon to be released summer collection.

The first change that we’re going to make it limiting the decant circle order. I hate to do this, and fully support what Angi does 100%. The way I look at it is the decant circles are there so that people can test out the scents before buying a whole bottle. Well what happened is that once the initial orders were in, there were no bottles left to buy. It sort of defeats the purpose, right? So moving forward the decant circle orders will be limited to 10 bottles of each scent with no add on bottles allowed. I know this is going to be disappointing to some of you but it’s the logical choice moving forward.

The second change we’re going to make is doubling (again) the amount of each scent that we order to stock The Rhinestone Housewife. I’m *hoping* this will be enough to to satisfy the growing demand for the lovely oils that Julia at Arcana bestows upon us. If demand for these collections continue to grow, I am happy to grow our orders with that demand.   I’ve learned a lot this past year and I hope you stick with us for the long haul because every day I learn something new and valuable.

This last six months The Rhinestone Housewife has seen exponential growth and admittedly we’ve had some growing pains. What do you guys think? I always welcome feedback and practice an ‘open door’ policy when it comes to suggestions and customer service.   I also wanted to take a moment and thank every each and one of you for allowing me to do what I love to do.  Without out all of you we wouldn’t be her.  So, thank you.
