Romantic love is all well and good, but I love to use Valentine's Day to celebrate the other loves in our lives - especially our girl friends!
We here at Pink Salt Riot kind of think of you all like our girl friends - the women who keep us running with your orders, send us precious notes of encouragement when we do our job well, and follow us across the whole wide web, cheering us on, loving on us, and keeping us able to keep serving you.
And ya'll are good friends.
So when we started thinking about Valentine's Day, we really wanted to love on you, big time.
And Love Boxes were born.
I have always been committed to bravery. My first startup was literally called Favoring Brave, and we are still legally Favoring Brave LLC. I realized our brand needed to pivot in the new year, and I knew that would leave us with a fair amount of inventory that no longer fit our direction, which is moving towards custom pieces and small batch goods and jewelry, designed and made from raw materials in house on our new laser.
(It’s going to be kind of awesome.)
But fear told me to hold on tight to everything and continue to sell our older things off in a small sale, sticking to what we know and coasting on that without innovation.
Courage, however, asked me to step out and make what I wish existed. Courage asked me, as it so often does, to do the harder, better thing.
Courage also asked me to give without counting the cost. When I closed Favoring Brave 2 years ago I had about 50K in inventory left. I called the newspaper and created an event on Facebook. We gave every last piece away to all the people that came. And it was one of my favorite days ever. The grace that space - that freeness from my creative past - created was the birthing ground for Pink Salt Riot and all our company is today.
Pink Salt Riot is a different animal these days however, and as much as I’d love to do a big giveaway again, the added costs of our space and personnel, as well as the cost of shipping, make it impossible to just send out free boxes to all interested parties.
So we are doing the next best thing.
For the first two weeks in February we will be shipping out Love Boxes worth $100-$200 for $25 each, shipping included. These will have a variety of products both from our online store and from our one of kind inventory typically reserved for shows.
Our shipping manager is going to pray over the orders each morning asking the Holy Spirit to get the right things to the right people.
For those of you that have seen us at conferences, these will be like our regular conference grab bags on STEROIDS. At SEEK 2019, our 250 grab bags sold out 21 hours after the doors opened, plus tons of people came back wanting more throughout the conference. We are kind of good at doing the grab bag thing, not to brag.

So if all this wasn't enough, we have an added incentive for you:
ONE random box ordered on February 1 will be filled with products worth $500!
These boxes are a perfect way for people to stock up for gifts, treat themselves, or bless other people. I know someone that is planning to send boxes to several friends and relatives as an extravagant but low cost way to love on their friends. They also make great Galentine’s gifts for girlfriends near and far! (Want us to put a note in your Love Box so you can send it right to the recipient? We can do that! )
Lots of love!
