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.
I hope you are all enjoying summer and take a look at my events tab for details on the other events we are hoping to still pop off!
It’s been a great 2 months that we’ve been open. The etsy store is still in full swing and all the new product that BethKaya rolls out with will get split between the store front and the etsy store. So if you are local you can come check out the latest in the line as well as all the new stuff for all the other brands the cove carries and if you are far you can shop etsy! I will also keep adding special intentional sets to etsy that are just exclusively for etsy.
So as we get an idea of what customers are enjoying both online and in the storefront, I am learning about the needs of each person. The single lady, the gym rat fella and the at home mama or papa. These dynamics are important to understanding whats happening and how I can help with the mission I am on. The mission is to connect people with products that are better for you and assist in your overall well being. I seek this for myself and my family.
Eventually we will roll out a membership co-operative. I’d like to give wholesale access and some other incentives to those interested in joining the self care cove-op! (Cute isn’t it?) If you’d like a little more info on this subject email me at BETHKAYA AT GMAIL.com Subject: BETA CO OP and we can open up a dialogue.
Also we will have some faces other than Beth behind the counter. I’ll be sharing more info about our friends and team soon!
This season is in full swing with the latest scents at BethKaya and the Cove. Right now I am feeling notes like : Bergamot, Lemon, Guava, Cherry & Tobacco, Mint, Mandarin, Tangerine, Frankincense, Cedar, Coffee, Madagascar Vanilla, Arborvitae and Vetiver. Crystals I am feeling right now: Apatite, Rutilated Quartz, Peridot, Amethyst, Citrine. What are you feeling this season? Comment Below!
Also we have rolled out some pop up services and events at the store – for all of the latest info check out the cove facebook page // events will be listed there and we also have a monthly small business support group that meets monthly where we discuss ideas and projects that are coming to fruition or are in full swing. No project or idea is too small!
Shop the latest BethKaya gear on etsy and stay tuned for more info. We are updating the entire site to include more information about our projects, staff and direction with this fast moving train! Thank you for all the support and love through out the journey!
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.
Stay tuned for more to come with my Spring line up!
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.
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!
Don’t forget! Come see us on SUNDAY 9/24 – In Asbury Park at Convention Hall’s grand arcade for the Indian Summer Bizarre! Awesome vendors, music, food and more, it’s one of the last bash’s of the season. You can’t miss this!
