King's Country Scents, a brand new shop I'd found on Etsy. Immediately after receiving that first order, owner/tart maker Tammy and I were chitchatting via Etsy 'convo' and she asked if she could send me a test package. She had gotten some new molds and wanted to see how the tart shapes would hold up in a different shipping container. My first order had come in a box. She was concerned that shipping would be too high that way and wanted to try lowering the cost by using padded envelopes.
Would I be willing to help her?
Well, heck yeah!
So she made up several different shapes and sizes to see how they'd hold up. She asked if there were any particular scents I wanted, but since these were going to be free to me it didn't feel right saying 'I want this and this and this,' so I told her to just surprise me with something that leaned towards Christmas. The package arrived very quickly and everything survived nicely. Since King's Country is a 'primitives' shop, the tarts are mainly grubby style. I love the grubby look!
And what did I get? I'll do a quick run through, but more detailed descriptions will come later as I melt them.
Thank you so much, Tammy! Everything arrived in great condition, and I love all the shapes. I don't think I mentioned in our Etsy convo, but I really like the cinnamon dusted look. It definitely adds to the grubby feel.
I will be ordering from this shop again for sure. If you haven't checked it out yet, I highly encourage you to do so! And look for my first Melted post for King's Country tarts coming soon.
