 Ms. Candy Carlyle smiled down at little Johnny, handing him his two bags of penny candy. “Now, run along, young sir, and go have yourself a wonderful day, okay? I’ll see you next week!” Johnny couldn’t answer as he was shoving half of one of the bags in his mouth already, but he managed a nod and a smile as he ran out the shop door, the bell above tinkling gently as he left. She watched from behind the counter as he ran out from under her red-and-white-striped awning and across the boardwalk to his pregnant mother who was pushing the pram containing his two little sisters. Her dress was tattered, her gloves were ripped, but she kept a smile on her face whenever she ran errands with her children. Candy smiled and waved, and she waved back. Johnny excitedly handed his mother a sweet, and she popped it in her mouth with glee. It gave Candy great joy to provide sweets and special memories from her shop to children of all ages, even if those children were actually adults. 

Candy’s Sweet Shoppe has been a hit on the boardwalk since it opened last year. She made almost all of the candy herself, except for a few specialty chocolate bars she had imported and sold to her higher end clients who came during the summer. Thankfully, she had plenty of local clients who lived near the beach year-round who loved her homemade sweets. Some even claimed that her treats had powers. She demurred whenever anyone asked her directly, but, secretly, she considered herself a kind of good fairy, or good witch, or something mystical who made her candies with specific intentions. One of her best summertime sellers was her renowned Crystal Mint, a delicious sweet of fizzy peppermint that made your mouth and lips tingle, send delightful shivers down your body, and make you feel calmer. Though it wasn’t technically penny candy, she always slipped a few into the bags of penny candy for children like Johnny as a special treat. It was clear the family was having a hard time, but that’s why she added the Crystal Mints. Peppermint was calming, soothing, and still delicious. She was sure Johnny’s mom could use as much calming for herself and for her children as possible. She made a mental note to bring in some of her old dresses and gloves to give to Johnny’s mom the next time he could make it into the shop. 

She had several more customers over the course of the afternoon; at one point, she was so busy she revisited the idea of hiring a shop girl, someone to assist her with the making and selling of her sweet treats. It was the busy summer season, after all, and it shouldn’t be too hard to find someone. As the afternoon came to a close, one young woman was loitering, twisting the handle of her parasol in her hands. “Hi,” Candy said, coming over. “Can I help you find anything?” The girl smiled. “No, thank you, miss, I was just looking. I’m afraid I can’t afford anything. Your shop was just so inviting, I had to come in and look at your offerings.” She smiled and gave a polite curtsy. She was about to walk out the door when Candy asked her to stop. “What’s your name, darling?” she asked. “Patricia, but everyone calls me Patty.” “Well, Patty, would you like a job here?” Patty’s face lit up. “Yes, yes I would love that!” Candy nodded. “Be here at 7 tomorrow morning. We’ll be making Rainbow Sherbet candies.” Patty nodded and gleefully left the store. Candy locked the door and changed the sign to “Closed.” She couldn’t wait for the morning. She hoped Patty was as wonderful as she seemed, and deep inside, she knew that she was.

Didn’t love a scent? Not a fan of that body product? Not a problem, as we here at Sucreabeille have an Extremely Generous Return Policy!

We’re committed to making the returns process simple and easy for you.

But first, a few things to note:

We really encourage you to wait to make a return until at least two weeks after the receipt of your order. Why? As indie perfume makers, we don’t use stabilizers in our blends like mass perfume manufacturers. That means that your scents might undergo the perfume equivalent of bottle shock in transportation, due to extreme fluctuations in temperature, aggressive package handling (tee hee), etc.

You can absolutely sniff your scents when they first arrive, but note that a resting period of at least a few days can make a world of difference in how a scent smells.

Store them in a cool, dry place for a little while and see how they can change. But, if you don't want to wait that long, we understand!

Returns must be initiated within 60 days of purchase.

There must be at least 75% of the product left in the container for us to accept the return.

If you don’t love a scent but would rather rehome it than return it, or swap it for something you know you love, we have an awesome swap/sell thread on our Facebook group (and it’s for all indie perfume companies, not just Suc). You can join our group here (https://facebook.com/groups/sucreabeille) and then search for “swap/sell” within the group. We post a new swap thread each month, sometimes two!

Sucreabeille reserves the right to limit returns if we have reason to suspect misuse of our Extremely Generous Return Policy (such as, but not limited to, excessive returns, reseller activity, or fraud).Items from the Indie Marketplace are eligible for return.

Items purchased from other retailers, dealers, or resellers and not directly from Sucreabeille are not eligible for return, refund, or exchange.

If you used Sugar Points on your original purchase, we will not be able to refund those to your account. Instead, we will give you a shop credit. (It's basically the same thing, it just won't be found under your Sugar Points.).Here's how it works: Send us an email with a note about what you’d like to return, and we’ll send you a shipping label. Send back the product according to the terms above. Once we receive it and make sure it’s eligible, we’ll issue you a shop credit or a refund to your original form of payment in the amount of the product plus your original shipping charge. We must receive the product before we can issue your credit or refund.

If you need help, send an email to shopsucreabeille@gmail.com. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have!
