Did we forget to mention...

We've opened up an Etsy shoppe! If you're not familiar with Etsy it is an online marketplace for buying & selling all things handmade. The site was launched in June, 2005 and now has over 100,000 sellers from around the world. Etsy's mission is to enable people to make a living making things, and to reconnect makers with buyers.

Here's a little peek at our Etsy Shoppe:

What's next on our schedule?

June 21, 2008
10 AM - 5 PM
Tappahannock, VA

Rivafest is a tradition here in Central Virginia that many families whether they live here or have moved out of the area flock to attend each and every year. It is sponsored by the Tappahannock-Essex County Chamber of Commerce. It's a fun community festival that is held in downtown Tappahannock Prince Street. The ever popular Fireman's Parade will open RivahFest on Friday evening at 7 p.m. with a judged parade through downtown, starting on Water Lane and turning on Prince Street. The Miss Flame contest open to young ladies from Essex and the surrounding counties will be staged at St. Margaret's Stage 2 on Saturday morning at 11 a.m.

Back by popular demand this year are a huge Arts, Crafts and Antiques section, Children’s Activities area, an expanded Farmer’s Market and the “Treasures of Tappahannock” historic walking tour. Two Entertainment Stages will feature a wide variety of performers, headlined by the legendary musical style of Steve Bassett, Ammon Tharpe with the Mystic Soul Bubbas and supported by one of Richmond, Virginia's favorite hometown hitters Janet Martin Band.

We'll be there bright and early. Look for our cheerful faces and great smelling soaps in the Farmer's Market area!

Don't forget!

If you're in the Richmond area this weekend you simply must check out the Ashland Strawberry Faire on the campus of Randolph-Macon College. We'll be there glowing (ladies don't sweat) in the oh-so-hot weather that's being predicted. We've created a special yummy strawberry soap just for this event. It's a limited edition, so if you want one, you better come early. They're sure to go fast!

Some recent press

We were tickled to have been mentioned in some local publications recently. If you flip through Richmond Magazine you'll see our soaps in the RHealth and Beauty section. And if you live in Hanover county you may have seen us in a great write-up in the Mechanicsville Local. Our thanks to the terrific writers. They made it a lot of fun!
