Our First Giving Week Was a Success!

Our First Giving Week Was a Success!

Through a combination of 10% of our sales that week and the customer virtual tip jar on Square, we raised $505. Part of the fun was visiting with some of the organizations to see what they were all about.

Forget "Giving Tuesday", Let's Celebrate Giving Week!

Forget "Giving Tuesday", Let's Celebrate Giving Week!

Why not pick five of our favorite organizations in Goshen and donate 10% of our proceeds from online and in-store sales all week!

Monday through Friday of this week, if you place a retail order online or in the shop, 10% of that purchase will go into our donation kitty. At the end of the week, we'll split the funds and write a check to each of these organizations to carry on their good works, helping to make Goshen a truly spectacular place to live.

Save Money with Your Gift Giving.

Save Money with Your Gift Giving.

Order a whole loaf of your favorite soap. Give some soap to friends, family, teachers, choir directors, the mailperson, your Aunt Maggie, and anyone else that needs a little love. And keep a few bars for yourself--we won't tell!

Pre-order at least 30 bars of the same scent (one loaf) and save $0.50 per bar.

I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.

This quote by from Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery has me stumped.

Most people love fall, and by all accounts, I understand it. Living in Northern, Indiana, we have the full benefits of all four seasons.

Fall is beautiful and the temperatures are just perfect. Drinking apple cider while wearing cozy sweaters is the best.

But, fall has never been my favorite. I get too sad about the upcoming winter and being cooped up indoors. I start feeling regret about all the things I didn't do over the summer. The shortened days bring on depression.

Send some sunshine to your loved ones!

Send some sunshine to your loved ones!

We all know that receiving a handwritten card feels a million times more special than receiving instant digital communication like texts, emails or Facebook messages.

Three Reasons Soapy Gnome is Palm-Free

Three Reasons Soapy Gnome is Palm-Free

Soapy Gnome has never used palm oil in our soaps.

Palm oil is used in many foods, soaps, and body care products. In soap, palm oil makes a nice hard bar and helps create a stable lather. In many soap formulas, it makes up as much as 50% of the ingredients. It’s also a relatively inexpensive oil which makes it even more appealing.
