…the prodigal returns

Back where we came from, reluctant returnees.

Customers who become friends

1 Comment


One of the nice things about our new Lujos business is that I sometimes get to meet customers! This happens most frequently in our part of Spain, because I can personally deliver the products rather than posting them.

One lady further down the valley ordered for the first time a few months ago – she had seen an article about us in The Olive Press, and wanted to try more natural products (she has a healthy skepticism wrt so-called “natural” products, because many of them are anything but!)

Anyway, she placed an order for a few products, and I duly delivered them to her. We met at a coffee shop in Coin, the nearest biggish town to us. It was lovely to meet her – we chattered away for about an hour, drinking coffee, getting to know each other. She is Swiss, but amazingly, she spent part of her childhood in North Dakota! Shock. I’ve never met anyone who grew up in the same part of the US that I did!

She is a lovely lady. She has continued to buy Lujos products, as have her family and friends (she likes to spread the Lujos word for me!). I have developed a new face cream just for her, and named it after her – it is for especially dry and sensitive skin (it will go on sale on the website soon).

Anyway, to return to my point. It is great to meet customers, always – and even better when they become friends!

  1. Thank you so much for the nice write-up! I don’t deserve such praise.You have also become a LOVELY friend, and I find your products ARE really good for me and it’s exciting to find such an excellent range of NATURAL products at such a reasonable price.
