The Road to TRF Part 2 – Gourmet Happiness

Gourmet RTTRF

*Update* Road to TRF – Part 2

Over the weekend of August 13th, the performing company at TRF started Dress Rehearsal and it was great! The smell of the bakeries making their first batches of baked goods brought a great new idea to our minds. So we decided to update The Road to TRF with the next Fragrance Family as…..*bum bum bum* Gourmet!

Gourmet!

Now who doesn’t love great scents that remind us of pies, cookies, and baked goods? No one, that’s who! So if purchase you any -Votive 4 pack in Gourmet, you will get 4 votive holders for free! Whats better than that? Well we have a new product to answer that question. An -18 Count Votive box of assorted Gourmet Fragrances for only $18. Just like the earthy special (Creative, right? Don’t worry, we have more specials to come.) This special will again, last for 5 days so jump on it while it is here.

The Road to TRF – A Walk Down The Road

1st Road to TRF 2016@0,5x

On the Way to TRF

Here we are 49 days from the opening of TRF and we are excited! As we go to our booth to get it ready for our amazing friends to come visit us, we wanted to bring you updates and a few Deals! Because we are on the Faire Site often in these leading months, we often have moment to pause and appreciate things. First, let me say, the Site takes a bunch of work to get ready. Since we where there just recently, we noticed the grounds crew making it pretty. Things like cutting grass, pruning plants, and bringing in new soil for the gardens.

Just imagine it!

So, here we are a candle company being bombarded by the scents of Outside! Grounds keepers cutting the green grass. Gardeners pouring soil around new plants. Us sweeping leaves out of the booth. Other booths preparing their gardens. Since we love our plants, we are already out there tending our potted flowers.

This got us thinking and we had our first thought about The Road To TRF. As we walk down this road, giving you updates on what we are doing and what’s going on with the site, we will be offering Special Deals on things the site reminds us of. Yep, that’s right, New Deals!!! So what is our first Special Offer, you ask?

Earthy Fragrances! Votives Galore.

Because everyone loves fresh cut grass and new soil, we are putting everything in our Earthy fragrance family on Special. So if purchase you any -Votive 4 pack in Earthy, you will get 4 votive holders for free! What’s better than that? Well we have a new product to answer that question. An -18 Count Votive box of assorted Earthy Fragrances for only $18.

Keep up with us.

We have 49 days until TRF so these offers will last 6 days each and highlight a different fragrance family and a different stage of set-up. We will update our blog of The Road every 5 days and update our Offers at the same time. Check back, Like, Comment, Share and enjoy! Also, check out texrenfest.com for their constant stream of fun and excitement.

Product Photography

It’s here! Photography!

I’m sure during this promo you have all seen our astounding lack of product photography. Well, that is coming to an end. We have started the road to filling the website with beautiful pictures of beautiful Candles. This process will take a while so I am going to update this post often with benchmarks to show everyone how we are doing.

Update 1

So, we have set up our photo area and are starting to get under way.

Here you can see our photo lab being in the midst of being set up. Photography at its finest.

Yep, Aaron trying to get an idea of lighting and color balance. Gotta love his commitment to good photography.
