Well, we wouldn’t quite call it a factory, but our new soap manufacturing workshop is well underway. For all of you that were not aware, we will now be making our bath and body products right on site. 342 Adams Avenue is the new home to all of the butters we (my mother) is currently unpacking. As I write, I can hear her yelling out “Babassu, orange, horsetail…” This is just an update to let you all know that by next week, all of our products will be replenished. Also, I’m thinking about new essential oil blends for lotions, and I’ve got a few body butter/scrub concotions floating around in my brain. Can’t wait to see what comes next. Thank you all for the support you’ve shown us in our new amazing location!

Next Saturday (May 8th) is our grand re-opening party downtown. Because World Fair Trade Day is the same day we will be doing some pretty fanciful stuff, and you should be involved! Stop by for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate, a design our next soap contest, free samples of coffee and soap, plus much more! Check out our blog for more details!
Fair Trade Day will be May 8th this year, and we would like to have you to celebrate with us!
It just so happens that this year the special day lands smack dab after our new move to 342 Adams Ave., in Scranton! In light of this lucky coincidence we will be having our grand re-opening that Saturday as well. You’re invited to come down and investigate all of the new items we carry along with new clothing, shoes, and housewares. Our scrub bar will be up and running again by then as well, so feel free to drop by for needed exfoliation.
We also have special event day happenings going on as well. May’s giveaway will be a chance to win a $50 gift certificate for anything in the store, so you can enter to win. We now sell fair trade coffee, too! We’ll have brewed coffee for you to taste, and soap samples for everyone! If you’re the creative type, enter our contest to design our next soap! The winner will receive 2 pounds of their creation, plus a store gift certificate! Also, we will be giving away a Ten Thousand Villages tote bag with every order over $25.
Don’t forget that Mother’s Day is May 9. We have lots of beautiful items appropriate for any mom, from soap to sterling silver. We can show how much we love our own moms while supporting mothers all over the world!
Hope to see you then!
