  • German's love Cassoulet soup and our unveiling as Thyme + Season

    Nov 19, 2012

    Transforming from Sugarplum Fancies to Thyme and Season has been an absolute whirlwind. Ordering supplies, tracking equipment from abroad, packaging design and coordination, designing banners, designing signage, endless administrative tasks, mastering Quickbooks accounting, implemeting inventory tracking software, website development, booth design, just to name about 10% of the 'what I have been up to lately' list. I made it through the firestorm that has been surrounding me the past few months and I can only hope that you are as happy with the newly repackaged company as Kaitlin and I are. So on to blogging about it and maybe I...

    To our valued customers, Kaitlin and I have been working hard for the past 9 months to give our little big company a much needed makeover.  We have been working with Kim Barufi from The Phoenix Studio which is a company that specializes in rebranding.
