Problem with Success

We have a problem. A wonderful problem. The Globe Ice Lantern Kits sold so well out of the Patina and Shoppe Local stores that we have an inventory issue--we are currently sold out. We do have a few available for online orders, but are unable to restock any of the stores . . . for now.

See, the idea was that we would do a "soft roll out" of the product to see if it was a good idea and then take it to market on a larger scale. After Patina picked it up, it became a "hard roll out".

THE GOOD NEWS is that we are well on our way to securing vendors that can keep us in good supply of all the good things that are in the kit, so we can send them out to people who are excited about Globe Ice Lanterns.

And excited they are! I get emails everyday from people who are trying it for the first time. It is fascinating to read the different responses. My favorite is from a woman from Anchorage Alaska who said she had just started experimenting with making Globe Ice Lanterns and loved that even her rejects look beautiful!

Have fun and please feel free to contact me with questions, suggestions or to send me photos of your ice lantern creations!
