Many small businesses are facing challenging times during this pandemic. Small business owners are pivoting and learning new ways to offer their products and services to their customers. Like an online shop.
stretching our minds
We are right there too. In our own business, we are learning new ways of sustaining our business. We are stretching our minds to do tech stuff that is hard for our age group. We are pressing on as we continue sharing on our social media even though our project list has shortened. We are also using our God-given skills and talents to help others facing this crisis.
Now listen, don’t think I am complaining or bragging – nothing of the sort is happening here! I just want you to know that we are continuing to look for ways to serve our customers and followers who have come to love our offerings. We want to continue to do so when all this is over and life resumes.
But in order to do that, we must shift gears, we must find new ways to present our offerings, we must press on. We will not be able to stay in business if we don’t.
And we are doing just that! Last week, I announced on Instagram Stories that we have opened our online shop! Woohoo!!
Honestly, when I updated the look here on our blog, I made sure to have the capability of having an online shop. That was over a year ago! This COVID 19 crisis has pushed me into building our online shop and for that, I am grateful for the challenging time.
online shop tour
I thought it would be fun to show you around our new online shop. It’s kinda like me showing you around Wilderlove on Thursdays as I often did before the shutdowns due to the COVID 19. We’ll be back to those days before you know it. Until then, let’s take a look around the online version of our shop!
You can see how to navigate around the place by looking at the menu just below our business name. The project tutorials we share with you are categorized with names like “Painted Furniture” and “Textile Tutorials.”
And the Shop is listed right after the “Tid-Bits of Life” category. Can you see the “Shop” category?
how to come into our shop
Click on “Shop” and you can see the different ‘departments’ in our shop!
Candles, Cutting Boards, Furniture…..
candles, candles on sale!!
If you click on “Candles” you will see in the options all the scents that Antique Candle Co offers. Let me tell you, if you don’t know about these candles yet, you are missing out!!
Each candle is a hand-poured soy candle with the most delicious fragrances you can imagine! Apple Pickin, Country Pear, Fresh Cut Herbs and Warm Carmel Crumble just to name a few! The candles come in two sizes, 8oz and 16oz and will keep your home smelling cozy during this quarantine!
And yay!! The candles are on sale!! They are on sale until April 30, 2020. And as an additional bonus, I am offering a coupon code for an ADDITIONAL $3 off per candle!! Use the code SPRING3 for the additional savings from now until midnight on Saturday, April 18, 2020
Candles make great gifts too. Mother’s Day is right around the corner so order soon! The candles can be shipped directly to the recipient so you won’t even have to go to the Post Office to mail it 🙂
handmade cutting boards
Another item that we have to offer is our handmade cutting boards. These cutting boards are so unique since each one is handmade from reclaimed lumber. No two are alike and we have some fun shapes for you to choose from….
….like this! The cutting boards vary in size so be sure to check each listing. They are perfect for food prep and serving. Can’t you just see a charcuterie for two spread of meats, cheeses and fruit on this gorgeous board??

**UPDATE ABOUT ONLINE SHOP: We decided to shut down most of what we carried in stock in our online store so we could offer these items to local customers.
We will occasionally stock shippable items here on our website.
So sorry for the inconvenience this may cause. We are so thankful for your support!
