Dear Friends of Raven Hill Botanicals,
In December, I sent out a newsletter with the news that I would be closing my doors. However, I heard such an outcry from my customers that I thought I should re-access my options and see if I could save it, or at least save it at some level. After Christmas, I usually take some time off for much-needed rest and recovery after the long holiday season. This year has been doubly hard for me after the loss of my dear mother, and it has taken me longer than usual to get to this matter of my little cottage industry. The story of my business began seven years ago. On January 1, 2022 I entered the eighth year of business. I thought that a full seven years was a good long run for a business into which I have poured my heart and soul. We are already into February, and I apologize for not getting this newsletter out earlier. If I try to resurrect my business or a part of it that has the most interest, I would greatly appreciate your feedback in order to know if I should try to keep it going.
Many of my skincare customers are wondering when I will be able to get inventory in stock. Things may change, as far as bottling and packaging, but rest assured, it will be the same quality product you are accustomed to receiving. Do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or by responding to this newsletter.
I was feeling very devastated by the decision to end the business. I have always felt so wholly invested in it. Still, I needed to do something soon because I have significant expenses with the website coming due again with the e-commerce for the year and reinvestments into supplies for running the business. It is amazing what it takes even for a cottage industry like mine, but dealing with every aspect of a business without help is part of the issue. I was hoping to be able to branch out and have needed some representatives, but with the on-going pandemic everything has been even more difficult. There was a great outpouring of love from my customers pleading with me to find a way forward and then came the award from LuxLife. So I find the next step will be to find out people's favorites and preferences. I must know this to prioritize what I will be able to do. I would appreciate whether you could also communicate to me whether you would be a month or bi-monthly supporter of the skincare lines. Thanks for getting back to me in a timely fashion.
Some of you may have heard that I won a prestigious award from LuxLife luxury magazine at the end of 2021~The Global Excellence Award~ if you would like to see it:
Following is a list of my products. If I continue with this business, it is critical to have customer feedback on this. The matter will have to be laid to rest, once and for all with your feedback or lack thereof. Find the complete descriptions and ingredients lists on About Our Products and under the product descriptions.
