Winter Market 2018

Thank you to everyone who came to see us at yesterday’s Winter Market. Your wonderful feedback followed by a complete sell-out of our just-restocked Menthol Shower Vapor Crystals made for a gratifying day. Setting up and breaking down is a tremendous amount of work, but it is worth it. Playing Store was always my favorite childhood game. Some things really do never change!

Below is a virtual tour of the booth, for those interested (read that: LOOK, Mommy!) lol. I created a new YouTube channel to post this, so I am now on a quest to gain 100 followers, so that I can claim a custom Youtube URL. Please, consider subscribing to my channel when you watch this video. You can always turn off notifications from me, if not really interested. THANKS!

Now that my public holiday sale events are over, I can concentrate on updating the website for all the holiday shipping orders I am going to attempt to not only generate, but actually accept, for the first time ever.

I usually shut down the page for shipping orders early in December, but this year I am going to brave the one-hour lines at the Post Office at least 2x and more usually 3x per week, for the duration. (No mail delivery or pick up available here “in Paradise”.)

I may also offer once-weekly local deliveries with a minimum order amount, which has yet to be decided. Stay tuned for more details – when I figure those out, I will post again.

I ordered new packaging at around 2AM for the next restock of what is slowly but surely becoming known around here as “Crystal MeNth”.

It’s okay, though. THIS is a healthful addiction.

8 ounces $15

Back in stock by popular demand, and I am really glad, thank you, because I missed having it around myself. 8 ounce tub as shown is $15. The price per ounce has gone down, and it should be easier to dispense from this wide-mouth tub.

Things have been crazy busy for me this year so far, and I have not had a lot of time to craft, but all that changes NOW. I don’t want to spend every January immersed in financial and payroll reports for multiple entities any more (​just Re-dew reports!)

I am looking forward to swapping that lid out for a white or perhaps green one, but honestly, it is like this… Until I finish crawling out of the hole of debt that I accrued setting up ‘The Lab’, I am sort of making do when it comes to container colors (haunting clearance sales and snapping up any USA-made bargain containers that I  can use.) When it comes to ingredients, however, I have never and will never cut ANY corners. I like to think that those priorities are also yours, and that you will forgive me the occasional odd color choice during this first year of operations.

Available now in Citrus Basil Scent ~ Coming Next in All Natural Lavender & Lemongrass ~ Coming Soon in ?? Make your wishes heard now!

INGREDIENTS:  Sucrose (Organic  Fair Trade Cane Sugar), Organic Liquid Castile Soap (Water, Potassium Oleate,  Potassium Cocoate, Glycerin, Potassium Citrate, Potassium Palm Kernelate, and Palm Kernal Acid),  Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Fragrance
