Meet the Crew!

Felted_Slippers

Have you ever wondered who does all the running to get orders out our door so quickly? I know I am sometimes curious about companies and how they operate. Well….. I have a new photo for you. Unfortunately it does not include all of our staff, someone has to hold the camera you know!

We are missing the Beijing crew, our Salt Lake correspondent, our purchasing manager and our graphics dude. This photo comes about because I have knitted these felted slippers for my family for years. I have knit clogs for extended family as well. At times my schedule was so overwhelming that I paid someone else to knit for me. Egad! Anyway, our current crew was curious about the sheep shearing happening this spring so we started a knitting night to teach those who wanted to learn. Our project was felted slippers! We met on one evening each week and as we progressed we had a few non-knitters want slippers too. I’ve spent my evenings and weekends chewing up my yarn stash to make slippers for everyone on staff. I’ve had some great help. I have new knitters – my hobby away from my job – or as my husband calls them “Cohorts in Crime!”

You have a family photo now with most of our crew. You have our best foot forward to make your order fly through this place and on its way to you.

Cheers!
Tina

Our Sage is Blooming!

I just had to share how lovely our sage is looking at the moment. It is blooming right now! I love looking at it as I head into work each day. I got thinking about what I could use it in. If you had sage available to you, what would you make? I was thinking of a tea for a soap. Tell me what you would make if you had sage right now!

Home Sweet … Sage?

Over the weekend, I spent some time digging holes and planting some plants in the beds on the north side of our building. This took some time and LOTS of energy, but I’m excited to say I’m finished planting all of these plants!

Now, you may be wondering what was planted, so I decideded to share a picture of the new plants. (At least one of them!) I planted 6 individual sage plants and quite the collection of chrysanthemums. The sage is just Common Garden Sage (Salvia officinalis). Right now the plants are still small, but eventually we will have wonderfully large sage plants!

The sage plants are right outside our front door. Won’t these plants be perfect for welcoming visitors to our facility?

Tomorrow … The new blog kitchen!

New Paint!

Today when I came into work, the smell of paint was fresh in the air. Our painter had been in last night painting the walls. I had to take this comparison picture of both the new and old paint so you can see our beautiful walls.

What do you think of this new color? Personally, I find it very appealing.

Finding MMS in Nibley Utah

Click to enlarge.

Since we have just moved, I have a new map to our new location

Directions from Salt Lake City:
Follow 1-15 North to Brigham City. Take Exit 362 (1100 South) into Brigham City and take the right fork of the exit. This will put you on Highway 89. After you get off I-15 you will see a Wal-Mart on the right side of the road. You are on the correct road.

Follow Highway 89 into Logan. You will go through a small canyon, but the road is four lanes. Be careful going through Mantua – this is a “COP TRAP.”

As you come down out of the canyon (called Sardine Canyon) you will see the whole valley and it is a beautiful view. Stay on Highway 89/91 and you will pass a Burger King in Wellsville on the left side of the road. Along the Highway 89/91, between mile markers 20 and 21, you will pass a small gas station and a small repair shop called Ted’s. At this point, you will want to be in the right lane of Highway 89/91. In Nibley, you will pass a sign that drops the speed limit down to 55 miles per hour. The next available road to turn right onto will be 2300 South. It is also called Nibley Heritage Drive. Take this right and the road will curve and you will pass some condominium style warehouses. The road will curve back toward the east and you will see 1350 West to your right. This is a Private Road, so you will not find it on Google Maps. If you look to the South, you will see two big brown buildings. We are in the building on the east side of the road.

If you are coming from Idaho, we recommend using Airport Road to drop down to 1000 West to escape downtown traffic, but if you are only familiar with Main Street, use it and you won’t get lost.

Our address is 2490 South 1350 West. This address is actually easy to find, even though the instructions make it seem harder!

If you would rather have our latitude and longitude for a GPS unit, we are at latitude: 41.687826 longitude: -111.865160.

I’m hoping we can get signs up on the outside of our building quickly. As soon as we have signs, I’ll post a picture for everyone to see.

I have also included a PDF map for you to print when you come visit us! Click here to download the map.

Cool Facts about Our New Building

Click to enlarge the picture.
As I mentioned on May 4th, our new building uses Insulated Concrete Form walls which gives us insulated walls about 14 inches thick. There are 3 inches of insulating foam on the outside, then 8 inches of concrete and another 3 inches of insulating foam on the inside of the building. I have a fantastic picture to show you what our wall looks like from inside to outside and I’ve even included a measuring tape in the picture for you to see the thickness of the wall!

I’m so excited about this new building and as things progress back towards being completely operational, I’ll keep you updated!

Enjoy!

The Move is Finished!

I am excited to tell you we are finished moving! We moved in the equivalent of 26 trailers that were 53 feet long. Whew! I am glad that is over. Thank you for your support during this move.

We are shipping orders, so keep an eye out for packages headed your way! We are processing the orders and are getting the orders out of our new facility as quickly as possible. Though we are not completely operational (the blog kitchen is not yet set up), we will be doing our best to serve you. We can’t wait to get our blog kitchen set up. Until the blog kitchen is finished, we will have some unusual blog posts for you. If anyone is interested in writing a soap or cosmetic related blog, please contact me.

Happy Tuesday!

More Moving News

I’m back from Denver and just in time to release this very important note about our move!

As I had mentioned on April 23rd, we will be moving Majestic Mountain Sage. I now have more details for you! We will continue processing orders until Wednesday, May 12th. On May 13th and 14th, we will make sure all remaining orders will be processed completely and leave our facility. We will not process any orders between May 13th and May 31st. This will include Will Call orders and Label orders. Any order placed during this time gets a special bonus. Processing the orders will begin on June 1st.

Would you like to hear more about our new building?

Our new building uses Insulated Concrete Form walls which gives us insulated walls about 14 inches thick. There are 3 inches of insulating foam on the outside, then 8 inches of concrete and another 3 inches of insulating foam on the inside of the building. This means we will not need as much energy expenditure to heat or cool our building. The building also has enough skylights that we will be able to keep the lights off most of the time. We will also have dedicated classroom and room to expand our facility!

Order now to help you survive through mid June, then you can celebrate our move along with us!

I’m going to run a contest to see who is the first to guess how many semi-trailers it will take to move our warehouse. When we moved in 2000, it took 6 trailers at 53 feet long to handle our move. We now occupy over 4 times the floor space. Let the guessing begin!

P.S. I’ll only allow guessing until I post an update of the number of trailers and the percent of warehouse completely moved.

Thank you for planning ahead and for your continued support. As soon as I know more about the specials offered during our move, I’ll let you know.

Directions and a Map to Majestic Mountain Sage

Recently, I had to help a customer find where we are located and while I gave her directions, I realized that it might be helpful to list directions for those coming from out of the county.

Directions from Salt Lake City:
Follow 1-15 North to Brigham City. Take Exit 364 (1100 South) into Brigham City and take the right fork of the exit. This will put you on Highway 89. After you get off I-15 you will see a Wal-Mart on the right side of the road. You are on the correct road.

Follow Highway 89 into Logan. You will go through a small canyon, but the road is four lanes. Be careful going through Mantua – this is a “COP TRAP.”

As you come down out of the canyon (called Sardine Canyon) you will see the whole valley and it is a beautiful view. Stay on Highway 89/91 and you will pass a Burger King in Wellsville on the left side of the road. In Nibley, you will pass a sign that drops the speed limit down to 55 miles per hour. At this time you will want to be in the left lane, because you will be turning left soon. You will pass a Comfort Inn on your right and there will be a Flying J gas station on your left up 300 ahead. There is a left turn right before this Flying J. TURN LEFT HERE! This intersection is an odd Y type road way. Once you are on this left hand turn street (called 1000 West or 10th West) you need to travel from the south end of town toward the north side. Remember the key to all Utah addresses is the quadrant system: 700 North is 7 city blocks north of the main city road (Center Street), 1000 West is 10 city blocks west of the main city road (Main Street).

While on 10th West, you will pass ICON Health and Fitness, then an elementary school, then LW’s Truck Stop at 200 North. The light here at 200 North and 10th West is notoriously short. The buildings in our complex are white with red and green trim. Our building is the ONLY building in the complex that faces north. Once you are in the complex, you will be able to see the MMS logo on our windows. Helpful hint for your trip through this part of Utah: the mountains closest to you are on your right, this is also East.

Our address is 918 West 700 North Suite 104. For all the instructions and maps, this is very easy to find. 700 North is within the complex and is not a through city street. If you would rather have our latitude and longitude for a GPS unit, we are at latitude: 41.744167 longitude: -111.8575.

Don’t forget to submit your blog or video posts to win the MMS Perfumer’s Kit. Remember, this kit is worth $280! Submissions are due by December 1st for posts during October and November.

Where is Majestic Mountain Sage?

*Note: This blog is now out of date as we moved to our Nibley, Utah location in 2010. The blog with the new information can be found here: Finding MMS.

We often have people say they can’t find the location of Majestic Mountain Sage.  We are located at

918 W 700 N, Ste 104
Logan, Utah 84321

700 North is a private road along 1000 N, and not a public street. This means that our address doesn’t show up in applications like Google Maps. If you use our lat./long. coordinates you can find us. We are at latitude: 41.744167 longitude: -111.8575.

Does the address seem strange to you?  Utah uses a quadrant system for our addresses.  This means that Majestic Mountain Sage is 7 blocks north of the center of town, and 9.18 blocks west of the center of town.  Now does that help?  If that doesn’t help, then keep to the latitude and longitude.

See us on Google Maps

or see us on MapQuest
