Where has the time gone? It's hard to believe the Holiday Season is upon us.
And because it is ... I want to let you know of my holiday schedule and gift to you this year.
Thanksgiving is Thursday, and the salon will be closed through out the weekend. I will be back on Tuesday, November 28th.
Over the weekend I will be decorating the salon and setting up my retail displays. That's where my gift to you comes in; mention this message and save 15-20% off ALL retail items! That includes Holly's Hobbies Unique Boutique items.
Honeys, Luscious Lotions, Body Whip, Hand Cream, Lip Balm, Wound Paste,
Healing Balm, Paw Wax for pets, Bees Wax Candles, Himalayan Salt Lamps,
Crystal/Gemstone Trees, Chakra Gemstones and Pendants and more.
If you're looking for a special or different kind of gift, come on in.
The salon will be closing Saturday December 23rd at 2:00 and will reopen on Wednesday December 27th, 11:00-5:00 and Friday the 29th, 9:00-2:00.
I will also be closed Saturday December 30th.
My regular schedule will resume on Tuesday, January 2nd;
Tuesdays, Fridays & Saturdays 9:00-2:30 and Wednesdays 11:00-5:00.
I wish you, your family and friends a wonderful holiday season and a Happy, Healthy New Year!
Have you seen the changes?

Other than those days, I will be keeping my usual hours.

Have you seen the changes in the salon? I've expanded Holly's Hobbies, and now offer things like Himalayan Salt Lamps, Chakra Stones and Balancing, Jem Trees, Chakra Tree of Life Pendants, Skin Remedies and more.
And of course ... my Fresh Fruit Jams! 1st up, Strawberry Rhubarb, ready the first week of June. Strawberry and Raspberry will follow in July.
I have my fingers crossed for a good Honey season. Right now I have 4 strong colonies, and hopefully one in the making.
In closing, I'd like to wish you a happy and safe Summer. And remember, you can stop into the salon anytime my OPEN flag is out. And as always, you can make an appointment with me by scheduling online or calling the salon at 207-721-9393
What a beautiful Summer we've had, and now Autumn is upon us.
I thought now would be a good time to let you know my vacation and Holiday closing schedule, as well as an update on what's happening with Holly's Hobbies.
The salon will be closed:
Friday (16th) & Saturday (17th) of this week for my vacation.
Saturday October 15th for the annual Bee Keepers' Conference
Thursday November 24th - Monday the 28th for the Thanksgiving break
Saturday December 24th - Monday the 26th for the Christmas break
Saturday December 31st - Monday January 2nd for the New Years break
beginning November 1st, some services will be going up $1 or $2. I just
wanted to give you a heads up. If you have any questions about which
services, please don't hesitate to ask.
Now, for some good news from Holly's Hobbies ...
I have Buxton Honey! In spite of the super dry summer, the Buxton girls did great! I have both the light amber and darker honey. I will know at the end of the month how the Topsham and my home hives did.
Thank you for your patronage, and I hope to see you soon.
May 24, 2016 Summertime
Summer is coming, and with that, vacation days and holidays.
The salon will be closed on the following dates. (Some of these are my regular days off.)
MAY ~ 28, closing at 1:00
JUNE ~ 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20
JULY ~ 2, 3, 4
SEPTEMBER ~ 15, 16, 17, 18, 19
The end of June is also the time when I get busy with Holly's Hobbies. I'll be making the first few batches of Strawberry and Strawberry Rhubarb Fresh Fruit Jams after my beach vacation. As my other fruit ripens, the other flavors will be made.
I'm hoping for a good Honey Season again this year, and will have them available hopefully in late July.
Available now are my new Skin Remedies.
I hope you have a great Summer!
PS Don't forget about the Monthly Internet Special, the Frequent Visitor Club and Referral Reward.

Spring is here and Shear Body is ready!
I've been as busy as a Bee. If you haven't seen it yet, I encourage you to check out my new website.
Shearbody.com has been revamped!
I want to first apologize to those of you who had scheduled your latest appointment on line , accessing Schedilicity from the new Schedule Now link, I thought the issue was with Schedulicity having updated their website, when in fact I was the one to blame. After checking things out, I realized the link wasn't complete which put you on their home page, and not Shear Body's page on their site.
No worries now, it's been fixed, as well as the link for GiftCard Cafe Did you know you can shop for gift certificates to Shear Body online as well?
I want to also remind you about my referral program. When you came in for your first appointment, I asked that you fill out a contact form (if you were here for a waxing, that form also serves as a release form), it asks if a friend referred you. If you named someone, they received a Thank You For Your Referral postcard for $5 off their next appointment. So ... for every new client you send, you will receive a Thank You postcard as well! And, when they come in, they will receive a I Liked You So Much post card for $5 off their next appointment.
Did you know I also have a Frequent Visitors Club? You can earn $3 for each visit you spend $30 or more (services only). After 5 visits in a 12 month period you can use that card of $30 off!! This offer is limited to when you pay with cash or check.
If you haven't "Liked" Shear Body on Facebook, I encourage you to. I'll put your name in the jar for a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate. Drawing will be on Tuesday, May 31st.
The new web site has some new information and links as well as the new Holly's Hobbies page.
I'm excited to be branching out by adding more products from the hive. Lip Balm, Hand Cream, Soothing Healing Cream and the latest, Moisturizing Body Whip.
Many of you have commented on the various pictures I've taken, and now some of them are available in canvas prints. 12 X 18 are $45 and 20 X 16 are $60.
Over the next year I'll be adding more items to my "Boutique". I thank you in advance for supporting my many endeavors.
Now for a subject that is bitter sweet; Cancellations and No Shows. I say bitter sweet because I'm happy that my schedule is as full as it it, however it drives me crazy when someone doesn't show up for their appointment and doesn't call to let me know. These No Shows cost me money and time when I could have scheduled someone else. In response to this, if you don't call or email me to let me know you can't make it, I will send you a bill for 1/2 of what your appointment would have cost. I understand things come up at the last minute, please, just give me a 'heads up'.
Thank you for being such a big part of my success (and reading all of this) :)
HAPPY SPRING!!! (May today's snow melt soon!)
