The Scenter's Back!

The Scenter is back online!
The Scenter was founded by Alan Hargreaves in 2011, pretty much by accident. A couple of years earlier a friend had given me some incense cones as a Christmas present, they were put in a cupboard and forgotten about.
Since leaving school I was working as a CAD Draughtsperson for a heating and ventilation firm, where I stayed until it closed. Looking for something to do I found the cones and decided to burn one.
I had never used incense before and was immediately hooked. I started reseaching them and decided I could keep myself busy whilst job hunting by buying some incense from a wholesaler and selling it on eBay. I reinvested the profits and added more lines, and thought I'd try selling them at the Long Eaton market. I gave that up after a few months since it wasn't profitable, but in that time I was selling much more through eBay that I could do it full time.
It was time to also have a website, which I designed myself. It worked, but not knowing what I was doing it never took off and eventually it was closed so I was just concentrating on eBay again for a couple of years. But now we're back, with a website designed professionally by the good people of it’seeze.
To start with stock lines will be a bit limited, since we've been trading only on eBay for so long everything we sell has been geared to what works through that. But we shall be adding new lines to the website regularly, so hopefully soon it can be your one-stop-shop for all your incense needs and beyond.
