We are still taking orders for the T-shirts. We have about a dozen or so, so keep them coming in.

CrabbyLover77 I will see what we can do with possibly getting 3X too.

We have decided to open shop on Etsy. We thought everything was inactive, but we had our first official "unofficial" sale already. We listed our jute climbing nets, flower pot hides, and curiosity cubes for now. We want to start slow with a few items and slowly add as we go.

Oh boy-- I see those cubes! Will definitely be putting some money aside for the next time I order off Etsy (You're my new store I'll be buying from besides Maddamay's)!

We are so excited we got our first reviews today! They were positive too! I still not happy the postal service delivered our very first order to the wrong address! Not how we wanted to start off! At least they don't blame us for it!

Thanks Joe!!

I've been trying to figure out how to casually advertise without being annoying. I can't stand going though a feed only to see post after post from the same business. I think one, maybe two post a day should be more than enough to promote, not every hour. On Facebook we made a page. Since I only use FB to post on groups and don't add friends we have no way to share since it's frowned upon but most groups. I guess four sales in the first week is pretty good! Plus we had a sale or two through here as well!

Hello everyone! As the anticipation of the scritchy scratchy of little pinchers against glass fills the air, we decided to temporarily close Coenobita Curiosities starting Sunday June 7th around 6pm EST. All orders received will be shipped in a timely manner, but no new orders will be taken.

This will allow our stork to work on our "Baby Bundles" for Crab Con 2020. This will also allow us to rebuild our inventory to come out of the substrate refreshed bigger and better!

Here is the link to sign up for Crab Con 2020 too!

I believe the regular and full access are avaliable at anytime. The VIP sign up will be ending on June 15th. The reason the VIP is being cut off early is so the swag bags can be shipped and received before the actual event!

The swag bags will include various items and discounts codes from most, if not all of the vendors participating at Crab Con 2020. I don't know what everything is for sure but it will be a good variety of stuff.

I'm so glad I saw this post! I didn't know that those stickers were for covering up exposed molters! How genius! I love it! (I haven't used mine yet!) You should sell those in your store! I'm ashamed to say I haven't used my cubes yet, but I did hang one of my bridges. :)

I love your advertisement for being closed to prepare for CrabCon! I must know...is FleaBag and the stuffed hermit crab going to be in your CrabCon video? :hlol:
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com

We have been using the window clings as advertising. We figure everyone will put them on their tanks so they will be functional and advertising. We thought about selling them but until Etsy and mail them we figured there wouldn't be much room for profit.

Fleabag and our other critter will be making appearances! I believe Fleabag may be making a cameo in another presentation too! Did ever hear of hidden Mickey's at Disney Parks? We will have a hidden Fleabag in our presentation. Whoever finds him first and contacts us will receive a prize!

How is it your stuffed animals look like they're posing for the camera? Mine are never that cooperative! Image
