I can finally say I saw our soaps on TV.. You haven't yet, but, we got to go to Miami and film a segment for the series, Showcase Marketplace. It was a blast. To sit in the studio and watch as a commercial was made for something that you help make was a really weird feeling. Charlie did a stellar job. Elizabeth the shows host made us feel at home and after a few takes of "one of her longer intros", they got a dialog going and it was off to the races. Charlie tried to ge
Started everything as usual. Packaged up the 7 orders. Went to USPS.com, put in all the info and OMG they raised their rates!!!! $1.55 a box. Now as you all know, we pride ourselves on our $2.00 shipping. Well we do that for you. Truth, we eat $3.25 on every small flat rate box we ship. That is our gift to you. Would you pay $6.00 for a bar of soap and then shipping of over $5.00? Didn't think so. I wouldn't! Well now, because we love you and we truly believe in ou
As I sit here going through our "book" from last year and deciding where we should go this year, I'm thinking back to each show or festival and just reliving each event. We have so much fun doing these events. We went to some shows this year that we probably won't go back to but we still had fun at them. For those of you that braved Gahanna's Blues and Ribs fest. Do you remember the rain? Pretty much 3 days of it, with Saturday raining continuously from about 9 in the mo
Doing a show or festival lots of people have question about why our soap is different from the vendor down the row, or questions that they have about different products that they see or hear about. African Black Soap being one of the big ones along with Goats Milk Soaps and soap that comes in logs either wholesale or retail. So here is some info on these questions.
Some say there is no such thing as "liquid black soap" while you can still find it all over the internet and
Hope everyone else is enjoying the fall season as much as we are. I love the golf courses right now, (hard to find your ball sometimes) with all of the leaves changing colors and laying on the green grass. Thought about this after this weekend, because so many people asked about apple scents. We had decided to make our Apple Crisp a fall scent originally, then kept it on, but, decided this summer to make it fall only again. Of course by then most of the soap
Good Morning Everyone
I haven't really posted much on here because I'm still not really sure what I'm doing. Have a free weekend this week so getting some things done. Charlie is actually starting the Christmas Soaps today. They need to be ready in September, so 4 weeks out, yep, fall is getting close. We only have one extra show, other than every thursday at Easton in August. That will be the weekend of the 7th and 8th. We will be in Zanesville at the Y Bridge Festiv
It looks like we might get wet this weekend in Gahanna, but, that goes with the territory with outdoor shows. We are thinking about extra Jewelweed Salve for all of those concert goers with being down on Creekside. Mosquitos should be rampant! They Creekside Blues and Jazz Festival has a great line-up for all 3 stages. Of course music is abounding in Cols this weekend. If you don't like country, jazz or blues, I'm sure you will find your music somewhere. Selling quite a
I think the new website is absolutely everything Charlie and I wanted on the site, except for no music. Then again, as you are going through the site do you want to listen to our idea of "soap" music? Hey I think soap and water would make nice music. Think Celtic. Not the step dancing kind, more like Enya. Love her music. Listen to her frequently. Anyway just wondered what people thought about the new site. If I am going to start blogging, I guess I'm going to have to
A short note to let everyone know that Sharon M. from Powell won the free soap from the Utica Ice Cream Festival. We don't always have the basket out at every show. Sometimes table room plays a part in this. There is just no room to put it out. If you want to put your e-mail in for a chance tell us. We always have the papers there, just not out.
Also, it looks like the new website is ready for launching! Hopefully this coming week. It is absolutely w
New website is looking good. Hope to have it up soon. After it is up I get to start blogging!! This weekend is the Utica Sertoma Ice Cream Festival, on the grounds of the Velvet Ice Cream Company on Rt. #13 between Newark and Utica. Fun, fun, festival with all kinds of old time games and races, huge bounce house area, zoo animals, crafters and of course ice cream eating contests. We are under the tent with a corner space. Getting low on Springtime soap. Our shaving mu
Great show last weekend in Cincinnati. Yes, it was hot and humid. Love being right on the banks of the Ohio river, but from a humidity standpoint, not so much. Made lots of new friends with the soaps and also with the Jewelweed Salve. Still getting those moments when people look at you with awe, when they put the salve on an itch or rash and it stops itching or goes away within seconds. We keep telling them,"Mother Nature in her glory with NO chemicals"!
