We reach the end of another year, surrounded by Christmas lights, friends' laughter and the popping of champagne bubbles. 2021 has been an eventful year, filled with fun, chaos, love and growth.
We wanted to take this opportunity to thank all our beautiful customers for the support you've given us over the past year, whether you've been with us from day dot or only discovered us this year. We have a passion for seeing you succeed in your candle making, soap making and are delighted you choose us for your supplies.
2021 marked the beginning of a challenging year. With heading into lockdowns in January, and what seemed like they continued scattered throughout the year. All couriers being pushed to their limits and those around Australia waiting so patiently for their supplies to arrive. Our glassware shipments continually being delayed to up to 3 months (always arriving just in time) saw us finally rejoice when we saw the shipping container pull into our drive way. Luckily all our fragrances are Australian made and never saw delays with them.
While we manoeuvred the challenges, we saw some exciting things happen at SCS. We introduced a few new products including Melt & Pour Soap Bases, Liquid Soap Bases, metal pouring jugs, wax melters, CocoSoy Wax and even our very own, in house designed advent calendars. Our team were so excited to see all these new arrivals and even more excited to see the final products you made using them! Keep tagging us in your Facebook and Instagram photos so that we can see your creations!
With this, saw the growth of our team, followed by our huge warehouse move. We welcomed into our SCS family 5 new team members, in both our warehouse and showroom and to accommodate all our new products and staff, we moved across the complex to Warehouse 1, double the space. We (the showroom team) were very excited about this while the warehouse team sweated it out for a week to move the whole warehouse across, while still packing and dispatching orders every day.
All in all, 2021 is going to be a year to remember, if not for the challenges, for the moments we knew why we were doing this. Hearing your stories of candle making, bonding with your friends while making candles, seeing you visit us, and seeing you grow your own businesses too. We are in this for you and we are so lucky to be able to share our passion of candle making with you. So, here's to an equally incredible 2022.
