My X-mas santa bears were a big flop.  Maybe I'll try candles for V-day

Danno:

  Sorry to hear that the bears were a flop. I hestitate to market directly with the holidays and if I do, I usually market somewhat broadly and do a basket or something like this.

 For the first time, I will give valentines day a shot. We will be doing a 1 pound squeezable dripless bottle of chocolate honey and a 8 ounce honey bear of maple caramel honey. I will include a lip balm, 4 romantic recipes all bundled up in a honeybe themed bag with a naughty romantic poem on the outside, honeybee themed of course! :)

See, I have all the stuf already except creating the recipes and poem on nice paper and all which I will do to order so it is no big lose if I do not sell any.

I did bags of honey- and beeswax-based soap and lip balm. Sold about 5-6 for V-day to friends and coworkers.

Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him
Is aristocracy.
