A few notes from Beth

Facebooktwittergoogle_pluspinterest

This season has taken me a bit by storm and it’s hitting me that I am over whelmed a bit. In an effort to stay in the magic I will be scaling back on some of the projects I had originally hoped to work on. This will include the Small Business Circle previously advertised. We will resume in the fall when our busier season dies down at the store front.

I am creating summer products and listing them as they pop in the Etsy store for you. Etsy is raising their prices from 3% to 5% and includes shipping taxes. Also listing fees. This will impact every etsy seller and prompts everyone on the platform to consider changes. Prices will have to reflect the changing of the times on this end and with the store front hoping to stand tall on its own as I evolve into the next area of my work.

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are staying warm in this fickle weather. We are going to wait till it’s a little warmer to do our grand opening so right now the Self Care Cove store front is officially open on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays – 11 am to 7pm.

My store is located at 515 Drum Point Road – Brick NJ 08723 – It’s a little yellow building and if you can back into the driveway, you might wish to.

The store features all of my favorite holistic bath and beauty brands and some new ones you’ve maybe never heard of. I have scouted independent brands from etsy and all over and have connected to bring you unique and honest products meant to make you happy and feel whole. I have handpicked such amazing items for you to explore. Books, Candles, Gifts, Home Fragrance, Plants and so much more.

This has been my life’s passion and it means everything to have gotten this far and to have the support of the community. We have a suggestion box in front of the check out desk if you want to tell me about something you love or would like to see me carry at the store. We are also looking to host some support groups, open crafting hours, lectures and more in the space. Please look for BethKaya and Self Care Cove on social media / facebook & instagram.

Greetings friends of BethKaya! It’s been a bit too long since my last check in before the holidays. Great News: We cleared all of our store inspections at last! This means we can start prepping and planning for the grandest of openings.

They're back ⚡️

They’re back ⚡️

This has been SUCH a long road for me as a person to get to this point. Finally moving in and stocking the shelves with all of my favorite brands, it’s incredible. Stretching into new designs and birthing some new wonderful tones to fall in love with. Happy to be working with a great crew who is assisting with the pace and you will meet them soon on a bio page here but also in person at the store and in person at our events.

Speaking of events – We LOVE the Asbury Park Bizarre ! We signed up to do the Valentine Market! Details Can Be Found HERE and below.

Store Opening Dates Coming Soon! Stay Tuned for all the fun brands we are bringing in and the latest designs from Beth! Stay Warm!

Holiday Season Update

This has been a hard and emotional week. Stretched beyond what I ever thought imaginable, and strained by relationships sometimes. I think I need to be firmer about not people pleasing and honoring my truths and boundaries. What are ways you assert yours? Melissa from the @selfcarecove crew made these with flowers and herbs from our family garden. Black eyed Susans are my home state's flower (MD). They are still blooming in this crazy Cali weather!!

Greetings! The holiday season is almost here! A time to share our gratitude and love for one another.  Our focus has been creating the perfect bundles to help you care for your mind/body/spirit.
Give the gift to yourself and loved ones this season of self-care!
We are kind of going on tour! We have been working hard to prepare for some exciting events in Asbury Park this December with the store opening being so up in the air. We want to get the products in your hands however we have to do it!
December 10th and 17th, we will be returning to the Bazaar in Convention Hall for their annual holiday vendor event. The Indian Summer bazaar in September was a blast and we are anticipating this will be even more so. Grab some hot cocoa and join us for the fun!
On December 22nd, we will be in Asbury Park once again for a very special workshop. Keli Skellinger, the esteemed owner of Maitrisage – Massage + Reflexology, invited us to her monthly Sukha Series to share our wisdom and products right before Christmas. We decided to offer a relaxing bath soak and tea ritual that has been a staple of our daily self-care. For a $15 suggested donation, you will be able to create your own salts bath to take home! Bring your oils or use ours and we’ll bring the salt bar! We will have a table set up for the event as well, so it will be a perfect time to stock up on any last minute gifts.  By the way, Keli is an amazing body worker – Asbury Park and Jersey Shore locals need to hit her up if you need the best massage you’ve ever had. She’s magical.
Be on the lookout soon for our upcoming store announcements. We have been creating a beautiful space in Brick Township to share with all of you. Our permits were released TODAY so that means it will be a few more weeks yet. Maybe December 1? We will see – I hope you’ll support us now and when we finally open. Our loyal patrons have been so wonderful! Until then, you will be able to shop online at https://www.etsy.com/shop/bethkaya
**If you are local, you can save on shipping and pick up your online order at the store! Just mention it in the comment section. We will refund/ or hold your shipping and arrange the best time for you to pick it up. Also, we ship ALL over the world and gift wrap, so if you want to beat the holiday rush at the post office, once the store is open, we can totally assist.
**Those ordering BethKaya goods online, please note that shipping times are 10-14 business days. Please take that into consideration when placing orders, we do high volume and there is only a few hands in the pot – we never want to rush our process.

Additionally we have holistic products galore in boxes waiting for our store to open. We have ALL of the best brands, BethKaya of course and names like Jason, Zum, Aura Cacia, Burts Bees, Doctor Bronner’s and More!

So if you follow us on social media you see a lot of changes we are going through as a business. For one I keep saying WE – yes we- I have a dear friend Michelle Russo who is flying copilot right now with BethKaya and the new venture – Self Care Cafe. She’s a beautiful soul, if you’re a friend of BethKaya, you know her by now but I will just formally say she is helping me keep my head above water. Along with several other players, you know who you are, and your time is coming. Thank you to everyone again and again for donating and supporting our self care mission!

Big meeting today - cohorts ;) if you are on the jersey shore and want to catch some poetry Sunday eve DM me!!

We leased a space in Brick NJ and it’s adorable, the issues we are having getting into the space however, not so adorable. That’s an entirely different post and for all things considered, let’s keep the tone happy.

I just did a late season restock on some new soaps, scent sizes, crystal parcels and orgone pieces. As I have money invested into the store front – I simply need your support. Things I’ve been sitting on are going to need to get uploaded and move out! So stay tuned to the etsy shop and keep checking back. It will take time for us to get into the space and we need the online business to have the same level of dedication if not more to be able to keep this dream floating.

INDIAN SUMMER

We are signed on to vend the Asbury Indian Summer Bazaar on Sunday Sept 24! I will be releasing more info about that in a little while but for now mark your calenders, it’s my birthday weekend btw so you simply can’t miss it! Not to mention tons of amazing vendors in the hottest spot on the jersey shore!

I wrapped up the kiosk this weekend at Jersey Shore Premium outlets. What an experience that was. I really enjoy setting up an installation that is unique to each venue I am at and really each day I am there. I take something away and adjust each time.

There were some moments of conversation that I will bring with more forward forever. A friends father visited the booth for a while and he is undergoing stage IV cancer treatments throughout his body. He was just so happy to be around and grateful through the words he shared. He told me how he had to fly to Georgia alone for his treatments. He wasn’t complaining at all I just remarked “That must be so difficult to do the travel on the heals of everything.” He just looked at me and said ” I have held my dying child, this is nothing, I can do anything.” He meant it. He also remarked “Every morning I look up at the sky and say thank you, cancer changes you, it really does.” So above all that conversation comes with me and helps me ground my gratitude practice.

Incredibly beautiful photo of @faerieblessings in her glory rocking a crystal sphere and orgone point ring I sent her way ⚡️ she is magical!

@faerieblessings “crystal sphere and orgone point ring”

I put some new things up in the etsy shop, some essential oil blends, some candles, new scrubs and new edition soaps perfect for the thick of summer. I am really loving where the shop is headed and how it looks.

It’s been such an evolution. I have some new orgone pieces coming trickling into the shop too and would love for you to check it out and tell me what you think!

There is a black crow perched above me as I take this photo and stare into my own shadow against the panes of my humid house. When the black eyed Susan's bloom a part of my heart explodes a little, every year. The crow nods as if he knows why. . . . . . Orgone Rose necklace strung on blue chalcedony rosary. ⚡️
