The last couple of weeks have been so wild! It started with a phone call to Missy, the owner and founder of Twisted Wares. We were discussing the newest changes to one of our 3rd party selling sites and we both said we needed a vacation. She joked she was ready to get in her car and drive to Seattle and I said I’m ready to jump on a plane and fly to Dallas. We laughed a little and I said “you know what? Fuck it! I’m coming down this weekend!” And I did.
She booked us in a charming hotel that had an outdoor firepit and we just sat around the fire laughing and telling stories of small business life all weekend. It was perfect and the refuel I needed.
I came home Sunday evening, unpacked and accidentally started a new show. I kept seeing the Blacklist on my FYP on Netflix and thought I’d just watch the first episode.
5 hours later, I looked up and it was midnight. I get up at 5am everyday and knew my Monday was fucked. Not regular fucked, but SUPER-fucked, like Monday was going to be wearing a cape.
I drug my ass in, plugged in my laptop, opened my email and there it was. THE EMAIL.
Amazon sent a notice that the shipment they picked up the previous Thursday was rescheduled. I immediately got scared! They had picked up 5,000 candles, our inventory to support Black Friday and Cyber Monday! The best part is Amazon won’t let us start an investigation until December 25th!
Since there is nothing we can do except nod slowly and while muttering “Sounds about right” here we are. How can Amazon reschedule a pickup AFTER they already picked up our cargo and signed for it? This is a new one for me!
Photographic evidence Amazon picked up the 'Cargo.'
Start a business they said. It will be fun they said.
This week’s $15 candle is Fuck It infused with Just Fuck It, because…Fuck it!

Have a great weekend & Stay Malicious,
