Sweet reaches the end of the road

Sweet  Feb 3

Thank you all for your patience and support through this difficult process.

I write this with a heavy heart. Due to poor sales and our inability to raise enough capital to continue operations, Sweet has no choice but to file for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection. All operations cease immediately.

A bankruptcy trustee will be assigned to the case and will administer the liquidation of Sweet and any and all refunds to customers. You will receive a notice in the mail regarding your rights and will be able to contact the trustee directly, if you have any questions.

As most of you know, Sweet was much more than a business to us and you much more than customers. It has been a painful road to get to this point. Sadly, I’ve exhausted all possible avenues to continue with Sweet.

This is a profound loss for all of us and the community. It is my hope that you will continue to use our Facebook group to connect and support one another. Nothing can take away the love, friendship and kindness you’ve spread throughout the world by rescuing animals, helping women and children, cleaning up beaches, planting trees and gardens and so much more.

Thank you for sharing your lives with us. It’s been an absolute honor to serve you.

Shine bright,
Shannon

A Sweet Time in Curve

Sweet  Nov 26

sweet curve cover A Sweet Time in CurveWhoo hoo! There’s a totally Sweet story in the holiday issue of Curve Magazine.

From a lesbian ATV trek to our community library and garden projects, Samantha L. Stewart wrote all about our unique blend of debauchery and do-goodery.

She lets the cat out of the bag about what makes Sweet so special. “The secret is in its hybrid formula: Mix exotic locations, adventurous excursions, and live entertainment with large-hearted, eco-friendly volunteer projects in local communities,” Stewart writes in Curve.

Jen Foster rocks the Island of Women in 2014

Sweeties,
I’m pleased as punch to invite you to join me for Sweet’s Isla Mujeres Resort, September 28-October 5, 2014, where you’ll be serenaded by the ridiculously talented singer-songwriter Jen Foster in one of the most romantic places on earth. We’re taking over this posh resort for a week of romance, friendship and fun.

It’s impossible to overstate the beauty of Isla Mujeres (which means “Island of Women” in Spanish). It’s part volcanic coastline, part pristine white sand beaches. It’s a tiny island. Technically, it’s itty bitty. It’s also absolutely stunning. A short cab ride from our resort is Punta Sur where there’s a temple to the fertility goddess Ixchel. The ocean is clear and warm. We have a ton of beach activities, like kayaking and volleyball, plus a ton of beach chairs to plant yourself in for a day of indulgence. We have a huge pool with a swim up bar, too.

The Sarah Smith files

Sweet  Sep 16

sarah smith 470x320 The Sarah Smith files

Find out why you’re Sweet lesbian musician Sarah Smith’s hero, why she adds a U to some words and how she prefers bridges on her guitar to actual bridges.

1. What’s your Zodiac sign? Does it fit you?
GEMINI. And yes, OMG, yes. I am definitely a twin personality. Crazy. I think that’s what Gemini means? LOL.

2. What are you looking forward to on your first Sweet trip?
I am really excited to be able to meet all the Sweeties, new people from all over the world, new friends, new family. I’m also totally pumped to be able to have my wife on vacation with me. And I feel that the Sweet trip will offer us a comfortable place where we can just “be ourselves.”

3. What attracted you to Sweet?
My friend and very talented photographer, Cheryl Mazak, was the one who introduced me to Sweet. And I will take no credit for this. She was the one who made all of this happen for me. AND I LOVE her for this!

4. When I’m not playing guitar and writing songs, I’m __________.
enjoying the simple things in life. Relaxing with Janene and our two golden retrievers, Daisy and Dallas, sitting in silence, trying new food, walking, athletics, reading self-help books, chores around the house, social events with my close-knit group of friends and chilling with my family.
