Something rather exciting came out of the Craft Fair on the weekend that I’d like to share with you all. The bath products sold really, really well. In fact, I totally sold out of my favorite soap, the Almond Oatcake.
This didn’t really surprise me and I’m going to make a fresh batch this weekend as well as order at least a quart of this fragrance. It’s sooooo nummy.
Part of the reason I make soap is I really love the organic feel of the process. There’s something downright magical about watching a bunch of oil emulsify with the lye solution and swirl itself into soap. I love that it’s old-fashioned, the way they did things “back in the day”.
The really exciting thing is that I was approached by Tammy, the Manager of the Creston Museum and she asked me if I was interested in putting my soap line and jewelry into the gift shop at the museum.
I have to tell you, saying yes to this great opportunity is a no-brainer for me. I’m honoured to be asked and, quite frankly, really excited about tailoring part of the soap line to the Museum itself. I’m thinking antiqued papers, sepia tones, elegant fonts. Lovely brown bottles. Apothecary-style.
If you haven’t checked out the Creston Museum yet, you really should. We often overlook great resources like this when they’re in our back yard. Pay them a visit and experience a bit of the history of your very own town. You can visit the website here: Creston Museum. Have a look and see what they’re all about!
