Happy Fall 2 Candles for $25 October 05 2014

Dear Flicking Fans,

It's officially the Fall season. We've got some exciting developments happening here at the Flicking Candle Company. First, the 3rd fiscal quarter has come to a close and it's official: our profit is up 1000% from last quarter. Mostly this is because we didn't exist last year, but, needless to say, all two of our stockholders are thrilled. Currently, you can't buy stock in our company-- but you can buy candles that are in stock here.

Secondly, we're at war with The Huffington Post. They reviewed 16 pumpkin spice candles and our very own Nicotine Pumpkin Patch didn't even make the list! We think they shafted us on purpose. Six of the 10 reviews were Yankee candles...we think big business & the Media are a little too friendly with each other. You've been put on notice, Huff Post...However, this doesn't stop ups from loving your original shout-out to us back in June. Thanks again!

Check out the contest page. We're looking for YOUR idea on new candles. Also, check out who won our last contest by default: We only had one entry.

In other news, our very popular 2for25 coupon code is back! Just type in 2for25 at the checkout screen and have our candle order of two candles just cost 24.98 + shipping! Fun fact: If you order 3 or more candles you can still use the code and it'll deduct 8.99 from your order. This is due to the fact that we don't really know how to make our cupon codes work correctly, so you win!

Monday Update: June 30 2014

Dear Flicking Fans,

I spent the better of this weekend ignoring all child labor laws and inviting the neighborhood kids to play ‘Factory’ as we boxed up all the weekend candle orders. Anybody who ordered one of our lovely candles Friday –Sunday, your order will ship by this afternoon.  We thank you for your order.

The other good news I have to share is that by this Thursday evening (July 3rd), we should have a huge supply of all of our favorite scents ready to go. I’m proud to say there should be no shortages of anything! I will send out a reminder to everyone on my mailing list. This Thursday: Every scent available and in large enough quantities to meet the demand.

I’m happy to say that all of this will be set up just in time for America’s Birthday. Although no shipments will go out on the 4th, you will still be able to place orders.  Enjoy! -- Mark

Well That Escalated Quickly June 25 2014

Dear everyone who has bought my candles and visited my site:

I can’t thank you enough. Until a few days ago, I had not shared these with anyone except for a few people. I showed them to some of my close friends, and when I told my wife I was going to start a candle business, she thought I was crazy-- but she supported me anyway because she legally has to.  I am both thrilled and overwhelmed that (ironically enough) Freshly Signed Divorce Papers made it to the front page of Reddit. I also want to thank DudeIwantThat.com, Pastemagazine.com, and Odditymall.com for the awesome write ups.

Many of you have asked me about when Freshly Signed Divorce Papers is coming back in stock. I should have everything restocked and ready to go by the middle of next week. I am also developing more scents for the fall. Some of you have asked about signing up for my currently non-working newsletter. I should have that up and running by tonight or tomorrow, and I will be announcing my new scents through there. This sudden popularity really caught me with my pants down, and I haven’t had an incident like that since 1995.

One sure-fire way to contact me now is through the ‘Contact Us’ button on my website.  Thanks again,  -- Mark

 Update 6/26: The Big Flicking Newsletter is working. You can sign up to receive emails, future coupons, announcements, and my general thoughts on life here
