Periods and Folly Farm
Hello there people of the internet! I’m here to talk about periods and Folly Farm. Don’t worry, they’re not linked. I didn’t magically start having periods while checking out the penguins. But this is one of those “two emails for one” type deals. You lucky bastards.
Periods and Folly Farm
Let’s start with periods then I guess.
So we’ve just launched the PRE-ORDERS for our period box. I know, you might be there going “that’s a bit of a random box to do, Ross” and yes, it probably is. But someone suggested it via TikTok and here we are.
We’ve always been quite open to where we go next as a business as sometimes you guys say something and we do roll with it.
The only reason we’re doing it as pre-orders is because it will contain reusable pads made by another small business in Izzy Wizzy Roo. We’ve always wanted to try and support other small businesses with what we do, but it can be quite difficult to realistically do so.
Your next question might be “what else is going in the box?” which is fair enough I guess. Make me work why don’t you. Here it is:
Go With the Flow Teddy Clamshell
Chocolate Orange Teddy Clamshell
My Bloody Period Teddy Pot
Hand made reusable pad from IzzyWizzyRoo - 7.5 inches Regular absorbancy
Terry's Dark Milk Chocolate Orange "Sharing" Bar 85g
Chamomile and Grapefruit Essential Oil Bath Bomb - 140g
Stress Buster Bath Salts - 140g
Mini hot bottle
Hot Chocolate sachet
Fini Burger Gum - it's a burger sweet with red juice that comes out 😅
Plus it’ll be free postage as we’ll kinda be doing it like a subscription box in the sense they’ll be packed and sent with the top card and not packed like an order. It’s just something to help save us time to make the price more doable at £26.99.
We aim to get it sent out around June 1st, but it all depends how everything comes together.
We might make this a monthly thing, but like with anything, it all depends on how it does.
Anyway… Moving on seamlessly to Folly Farm.
We Packed an Order at… FOLLY FARM!
So yeah… I have no idea how much longer I’ll do these “Packed an order at…” videos as they do take a bit of time to film and edit - not that we mind going to Folly Farm for the day, let’s be honest - but it’s also not like these videos do all that well either.
Don’t get me wrong, I 100% know that it isn’t all about the views. But at the end of the day, there are LOADS of things that we could do with the business, so I have to be sensible with what I pick.
Maybe I just need to put less time into the edits and stop with the faff. Just quick, candid videos of what we’re up to.
Or maybe I just make shit YouTube videos that are a bit boring. Or perhaps I just need to give it more time. At the end of the day this is only the 4th video I’ve done since being “back” on YouTube and sometimes these things take time. Who knows.
Anyway, here’s the video, feel free to give it a watch if you want:
Large Letter Postage is back!
Lastly, I thought I’d mention that large letter postage is back on the website!
So you no longer have to pay small parcel prices - which used to be £3.50, but is now £3.75 Tracked - and instead you can have it for £2.50.
This will basically be for smaller orders that mainly consist of Teddy Pots. We can still do large letter postage for the £4.99 Teddy Clamshells as they fit, but the XL will always be a normal parcel.
We only scrapped the large letter postage due to the time it took us to manually apply all the postage in the night off of everyone’s sheets. Now that we have a Royal Mail business account everything is done there and then when an order is packed so it doesn’t really make anything more complicated.
We know price is a big thing now more than ever, so we are looking at ways to try and help with that.
Thank you for reading, I hope all is well with all of you!
