So. To say that we’ve been a little bit behind on our once regularly scheduled blog posts is an understatement. I just wanted to take a moment to sit down with you lovely guys, gals, and walruses to explain what’s been going on with The Raw Spa for the past few weeks. Just so you have some context as to why we’ve been so delayed.
As you may or may not know, The Raw Spa is a two person show right now! There’s Guy, who runs all matters electronical (blogs, social medias, email correspondence) in addition to a being a full time Cookie Specialist and a part time Mad Scientist. Here is a picture of Guy!
Here we have a Guydunicus Computernerdicus in it’s natural habitat. Note the Mackium Wheresmyblogius in the corner preparing to pounce!
Then there is Mack, the original mind behind The Raw Spa! She started off doing all the things on her own. Now she just does all the important stuff (mixing the things, researching the things, making the new things, designing the website things, designing the business card things, and about a bazillion other things I’m probably not even aware of). Here is a picture of Mack!
Contrary to common belief and movies starting a business is really freakin’ hard, but it’s exceptionally rewarding to see how we’re growing every year. In the past year alone, we’ve been vendors at some awesome live events, advanced in little ways every day and generally are having a challenging, but fun, adventure with The Raw Spa!
Now for the longest time The Raw Spa has been based out of Mack’s mom’s house. While its been relatively cheap living there, we always wanted a space of our own. A space where we can mix and make as we please! A space filled with unique and enchanting scents! A space where we don’t have to worry about a two individuals, who will remain nameless, fighting over whether to use valuable stove top space for lotion or chicken stock.
Anyway, a little while ago a friend of ours phones us with the news that they are moving out of their swanky apartment in West Philadelphia! And let me tell ya, we dang near jumped down her throat to get into that apartment! Now, after many trials, tears, and convoluted plans to rob a bank for the first/last months rent plus security deposit we are finally finally moving into our own space!
And when we signed the lease we were all like:
Mack had a lot of Will Ferrell in her leap while Guy was working more of the Steve Carell style.
Now, on to what this means for you. As of today, 8/21/2016, we are going to be shutting down The Raw Spa for a little while while we get moved in. If you place an order via our website, we’ll be more than happy to refund your money since we’ll be too busy packing, moving, setting up utilities…you know, Adult Stuff™.
So do not be alarmed as we do a soft close of our social media and website! We’re just gearing things down on the business so that we have time to focus on moving. Once we have the lotion lab, the office, and the sacrificial circles to the dark gods of skincare moved into the apartment we’ll be sure to let you guys know. We even plan to have a “WE’RE MOVED IN SALE” in early to mid September!
Thank you for bearing with us! You guys rock! Stay crunchy!
