Peta and I were in Hobbycraft today looking for some ribbon. We’re making a prototype of our forthcoming Beeswax Candle Kit aimed at people who want to make candles without heat (including, of course, kids).
And then we spotted the thermometers. These are exactly the same as the ones we supply for £2.99 except, in Hobbycraft, they cost 3 times as much!
While we were there, we also noticed that 30ml of candle oil costs £7.49, on our site it’s £2.99!
I do appreciate that retailers have stores to run but this is a huge price difference being paid by the punter. I also appreciate that we charge postage but then, unless you have a retailer within walking distance, you’ll need to drive there.
