As the weather and leaves start to turn, here at Nostara we’ve definitely got that ‘Back to School’ feeling… but what of the Summer? Why haven’t we been blogging during the last few months? Because we’ve been busy, busy busy!
What have we been up to? Well, in the last few fabulously sunny months, we’ve mostly been in (rather warm) marquees up and down the country! Luckily, it’s just been us melting, not our candles.
We’ve had a whirlwind of a time getting to meet lots of our customers and making new ‘Friends of Nostara’.
As an online home fragrance company, we knew that until ‘scratch and sniff’ technology was invented, we needed to get as many people as possible smelling and seeing our beautiful candles and reed diffusers. We decided the best way to do that was to get out and about, meeting and greeting our public and showcasing our wares. And so, we’ve met many of you out at Country Shows, Craft Fairs and Pop-Ups - it’s been a blast!
We’ve been overwhelmed by the positive reactions we’ve had and feel as though we’ve made genuine connections with our customers. It’s also been lovely to see some of you at more than one event - we really appreciate you coming to say hello again!
So, as the silly, summer season comes to a close will we be going into hibernation? You must be joking! We’ve got a jam-packed calendar of events taking us right up to Christmas. You know we want to keep in touch, so we’ll be adding an ‘Events’ page to our website soon, so you (and our families) know where we’ll be and when… Why not make a date in your diary to come along?
We look forward to letting you sample our gorgeous scents and helping you with your Christmas shopping as the big day approaches.
In the meantime, we’re thrilled that our 1st birthday is just around the corner. We went live with our website back in October 2017, and we’re now looking forward to celebrating how the Nostara brand has grown and generally treating it as an excuse to have lots of cake! Watch this space for our birthday news…
Well, it’s all over for another year! We hope you all had a lovely Christmas with your loved ones. It sometimes feels that all the hype is over all too quickly but it’s one of the holidays when you make time for your family, and those nearest and dearest to you.
Love it or loathe it, it’s coming! We're in the 'love it' camp, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. But, one thing's for sure, if only due to time alone, our Christmas preps are a bit different this year.
There'll be less cards written and more focus on keeping things simple. And, it’s not just us. There’s a whole movement of less waste and valuing what we have...
