Pillarnet's been a bit frustrating lately - no promises
but I'll TRY to post a copy - remember - this is not THE Company site -
it's a copy of the most current info I happen to have. Remember - no
matter how frustrating it is to not be able to get on the internet version
of Pillarnet - you can ALWAYS pick up the phone and call Pillarnet. 508-747-4533
No, it's not toll-free - but it is NOT that expensive. Get your tracking
numbers for your shows that way, then access the direct UPS tracking on
the UPS website. Ask yourself this question - "Will getting
frustrated and angry about the situation change it?" Not very likely,
just deal with it using an alternative method and you'll feel better at
having used your time more productively!

Cookie Party Diane
(from the candleleader list - 11/1/98)
I have heard of "cookie parties" to get
hostesses to book in December. For a cookie party, each guest would
make several dozen of her favorite or best cookies. When the guests
arrive, they trade some of their cookies for some of someone else's.
So, for example, when I go (I would take cookies too!), I'll take 8 dozen
of one kind of cookies (the more you take, the more you bring home).
If there are 8 guests, I'll trade each guest a dozen of my cookies for a
dozen of theirs, and I'll go home with a dozen each of 8 different kinds
of cookies!!! Also you should tell each guest to bring their
Additional Uses for the Hurricane Shade Mel
(from candlecyberunit list
Many people have hurricane shades already so I looked
for ideas to get them to buy accessories for their shades. I
demonstrate hurricane with the Cradle to preserve their Homecoming Mums or
Garters (for the football boys) or corsages from proms or Cotillions.
I also suggest it would be great as a bridesmaid's gift (with hurricane)
so the bridesmaids could preserve their bouquets after the wedding.
In South Texas we have Quincianeras which are celebrations of 15th
birthdays -- hurricanes and cradles can hold those bouquets as well.
If the customers don't have teenagers anymore I suggest using it in
combination with the Blue Bayou to hold Christmas balls and tinsel.
You loosely pack tinsel and blue or blue & silver balls in the shade
on top of the Blue Bayou and its a very pretty Christmas arrangement.
For a Victorian theme, use the ivory three-wick holder as a base and then
use lace & ribbon instead of tinsel. The trick is to show them
that they really need something from us to compliment their hurricane.
And One For the Fun of It...Cheree
(Candleparty list 1/99)
Here's what I do depending on the age and type of crowd.
I will hold a 3x9 pillar candle and say "This is a true 3x9 no matter
what you have been told." At first they kind of just look at
you and then it sinks in and they all start to laugh!!
Then I show them how to use the library lamp as a
weapon. For those who don't know. DO NOT LIGHT AT THE START OF
THE SHOW! Then when showing them how the candle goes in I will say
now in the middle of the night when you hear that strange sound you can go
and get your lamp untwist the candle aim and hold fire when ready.
If by chance you miss you can always play Clue and do the deed in the
library with the candle stick.

About the "Elimination
Enough has been said all over the lists and boards
regarding the timely release of information from the home office all the
way down to consultants and whether it should or should not be shared! The
reality of it is, the elimination list is a valuable sales tool - not just
for consultants to help book shows, but for the company as well. It is in
their best interest to "move through" products that are going
out of the upcoming catalog BEFORE doing any markdowns on them. It impacts
the profit and loss of any company to mark down products that are being
discontinued - anyone who has ever worked in a retail environment knows
that the more product you sell at full retail the stronger your bottom
line is! Stronger bottom line = more available capital/revenue to pour
into new products, more available inventory, new incentives, and happier
On that note - here is a positive light shining on the
heavily debated elimination list subject form the lists. Thanks Fran!
