All are Welcome Here

All are Welcome Here

Since we opened our brick and mortar in 2014, we have strived to have a welcoming environment to everyone regardless of race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, country of origin, age, and even ability to pay.

We want to be warm and welcoming within our walls and we want those good vibes to spread into the community.

Finding Treasures for My Customers

Finding Treasures for My Customers

I went to America's Mart looking for treasures and I found them! I wasn't very optimistic about finding things that would complement the bath products, teas, men's grooming, and cozy things that I already carry, but I found a few things that are practical and fun! Most are supporting small family businesses too--how could it be any better?

Planning for America's Mart in Atlanta

It's really interesting, helpful, and sometimes stressful to play both sides of the retail world. I am a manufacturer/wholesaler AND a brick and mortar retailer. This means, that I get to learn what is frustrating for both manufacturers and retailers since I have both roles.

Shaving Soap Leaves My Skin Feeling Great!

Shaving Soap Leaves My Skin Feeling Great!

Sure, it takes a little more work to use a brush and create a lather with the shaving soap, but the benefits of using a shaving soap with natural ingredients makes a difference in how my skin feels after shaving.

The Glamorous Life of an Entrepreneur

The Glamorous Life of an Entrepreneur

I was standing in a barn with broken glass at my feet, my arm up a two foot high glass pillar vase and my jeans soaking wet from where I accidentally dumped a vase of water on myself. My friend needed some help washing glassware, so I was pitching in.

Soapy Gnome Goals for 2016

Soapy Gnome Goals for 2016

Sometimes I run across folks that think my business is cute or a glorified hobby. I'm not trying to pay for my soap habit, I am building an honest to goodness business. The day it becomes a glorified hobby I'll stop making soap.

Life Long Learning And Masterminds

Life Long Learning And Masterminds

Before becoming a soap maker, I was a teacher of high school kids. As a teacher, I firmly believe that to live life to the fullest, one should be a life-long learner. 

Learning new things has always been a lot of fun for me. I've taken classes in pottery, painting, spinning wool, yoga, photography, dog agility...the list goes on.
