Here's a quick preview of the yarns coming on Friday 26th December at 11am GMT, as part of The Twelve Caesars Collection of Domitian, the last Caesar in the collection.
Thank you all so much for making The Twelve Caesars Collection a roaring success this year! In the Boxing Day sale starting on December 26th at 11am there will be a sale section with all the leftovers from previous Caesars AND Domitian will go straight into the sale.
Just as a warning, sales and updates can go pretty manic at Countess Ablaze and I'm afraid that once any items from The Twelve Caesars Collection have gone, they're gone for good.
On the morning of the 26th the shop will be locked down and password protected so that final adjustments can be made and that the shop is completely ready. This is not a cause of concern and you will not need a password to get in. The shop will open at 11am. Be patient! (I say this as last year I had a lot of panicked emails from people who were trying to shop before the shop was open).
Countess Ablaze is a one woman dyeing and packing order operation so orders will be sent in the New Year. Just a gentle reminder that small businesses need time off too so please remember that the Countess will still be replying to emails whilst celebrating Christmas and shall reply as quickly as she is able.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas! ~ Lyndsey
