Sally started designing microwave heat pads in 2008 for her mom who suffered with fibromyalgia. She began selling her hot and cold pack designs on etsy under the name theferriswheels, http://www.theferriswheels.etsy.com Sally's maiden name is Ferris and this was a tribute to her mom and dad. Sally quickly learned that there was a need for unique and attractive therapy products and kept designing more styles. Her husband Chet joined the business in 2010.
We are always thinking of new heat pack designs to help ease every ache and pain. All microwave heat pads are made by us in the USA.
WHAT'S NEW WITH US ....
Well, we're entering the dog days of summer here in Florida. This is the time of year I use our cold packs on a daily basis just to cool down a bit! Hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing and pain free summer!
We're gearing up for the end of school as I'm sure many of you are. Quick reminder - HotColdComfort's Heating Pad Gift Sets make wonderful graduation presents! What a great thing to send off to college - a little heated hug when you can't be there to deliver a hug in person :-)
*** HotColdComfort Coupon Code for 10% off. Use the phrase HappySpring2013 through June 30 for the discount!
We're now supplying eye pillows and small microwave heating pads to www.mamlanabox.com for their Boxes of Bliss. So honored to have our products included for all the moms to be!
*** Brrr, FINALLY getting a bit of chilly weather here in FL. We're snuggling up with our microwave heating pads at night :-)
We've had some wonderful wholesale customers lately - thank you! HotColdComfort Heat Pads and Cold Packs are in spas and clinics all over the country!
*** Give a heated hug for Valentines Day with HotColdComfort's soothing gift sets! Beautiful Microwave Heating Pads make the perfect, unique gift for someone you love.
We've been working hard this month with several large wholesale orders, but are still taking care with our wonderful retail customers :-) We've also ordered some new fabrics that will begin popping up on our websites and venues soon.
February has brought great sadness to our household with the loss of our precious dachshund, Beauregard. For those of you who follow us on Facebook, you've come to know Beau through our Weiner Dog Wednesdays. Sadly, he was taken from us much too soon - we miss you Beau!
*** Happy New Year! We're so excited about this year. Sally has a lot of new ideas for product design that we're hoping to work on soon. We've also expanded our fabric selections and we're adding new pictures as quickly as we can.
Thanks so much to all our wonderful customers for allowing us to provide all your microwave heating pad and cold pack needs :-)
*** What a wild and wonderful holiday season we have had! Thank you to all our customers from the bottom of our hearts.
Please excuse so many 'sold out' products. We will have our entire line of hot and cold therapy packs back up for sale first thing in January (with new fabric selections to come!).
Merry Christmas everyone!!
*** The holiday shopping season has begun. We are so grateful for so many repeat customers and facebook friends purchasing. Hoping you all have a wonderful holiday season!
*** Whew, busy October here with Sally having some health issues of her own. My sincere and utter empathy for anyone dealing with chronic pain.
As for the business, we are staying busy and ready for the holiday season to go into full swing!
*** We've started a new Facebook page! www.facebook.com/hotcoldcomfort
We're continuing our theferriswheels facebook page as well with plans in the future to merge the two. We'll be posting new products, discounts and coupon codes to both :-)
*** It's back to school time, so we're gearing up to send our three kiddo's back after our nice summer break. This is also the time of year our business begins to really pick up (when the weather starts getting cooler, folks buy heat packs, imagine that :-)! Wholesale requests need to be in within the next two months for us to be able to supply for the holidays - so get your orders in now to ensure we can meet your needs!
*** We started August with a bit of a shock. We discovered our product pictures had been stolen by an overseas manufacturer and placed on a wholesale website. We're currently working to get our copyrighted photos and descriptions removed. It doesn't appear that the manufacturer actually makes our products, just uses the pictures to lure in orders.
Rest assured, the product designs, photos and text on our website and various selling venues are all our own. (The thumb and wrist in the pictures are even mine!) We design and handmake each therapy heat and cold pad just for you.
HotColdComfort does not authorize the use of our pictures or products by any outside vendors. If you see any of our pictures around the web that are not sold by HotColdComfort or theferriswheels (that's us too!), please let us know. We appreciate it!
*** July is our month to plan for the Christmas selling season! We've been stocking up on fabric and supplies all month long. We've also made a TON of microwave heating pads, just waiting to be filled when the holiday orders start rolling in November and December.
HotColdComfort prides itself on quick shipping, so we always want to be ready to send you just the gifts you need when you need them!
*** We've been working on a large wholesale order for a radiology clinic. We're making small hot and cold packs for patients having their blood drawn. We're also supplying microwave heating pads for patients undergoing cancer treatment. The clinic says their patients love the comfort our products bring, and we are so humbled to be able to provide any kind of relief for those fighting cancer.
