Here We Grow Again!

November 02, 2010

As our little venture has grown and taken on a life of its own, we have been quite fortunate to run into some kindly entrepreneurs along the way.  Several of these kindred spirits have taken a liking to us and our products and have partnered with us to bring great soap and lip balm to their customers.  We have already announced, via this blog or facebook, our partnerships with the Union Square Emporium, Deborah’s Gracious Gifts, and The Artwalk in Boone.  We are very excited to announce that we have also partnered with Amanda Carroll at the Bead Boutique in Matthews, NC.  This is a huge step forward in extending our market presence as it gives us our first footprint in the Charlotte Metro area. Here are a few pics of our product in Amanda’s shop.

While our initial space in the Bead Boutique is fairly small we are looking forward to a successful couple of months that will justify our expanding our footprint in a wonderfully unique store.    We had lots of fun getting to know Amanda and her sister who were neighboring vendors at the recent Christmas in the Valley show we attended.  If you are in the Matthews area, stop by and visit with Amanda and her team and buy some soap!

This year is shaping up to be another big festival year for us.  With the purchase of bubbles (our soapy van) we have the ability for the first time to transport proper furniture to our multi-day shows.  It was a huge change for us and came with some trepidation as we tried to decide what […]
