First of all I would like to wish you a Happy New year, may it bring happiness and opportunity.
Here at Celtmyth we have a number of exciting developments that are going to take place this year. The biggest is the transfer of Tredegar House and the associated Craft Workshops to the National Trust who have taken a 50 year lease on estate. Visitor numbers are expected to treble in the summer because of this so we are revamping the retail side of the shop in preparation. So if you do visit the wonderful Tredegar House please pop on over to the Craft workshops and have a look around.
A large proportion of last year was spent updating the personalised candles designs to make them compatible with our new printing system and as a result a lot of work went into the website as all the designs had to be changed. Thankfully that is now complete and so the next stage is to add some new categories such as valentine candles as well as more personalised candle designs for existing categories. New designs on the drawing board as we speak include stained glass, angels, floral shapes which will be rolled out through the year.
We are also going to be including a gift boxed option on all our candles which includes not only pillar candles but tapers as well. For those of you who have an artistic streak we will also be creating a design-your-own-candle section on the website which will provide you with the necessary candle sizing templates to allow you download and then use in either Photo shop or Elements to create your own design. You then just upload your artwork with your order and we then put it onto a candle for you.
So all in all its going to be an interesting and very busy time.
