We will be, for the first time, be vending at the Philadelphia Gift Show at the Greater Philadelphia Convention Center, Oaks, Pa. The wholesale show runs from July 21 through the 24th.
If you are coming, be sure to stop by our booth #1724 in the Handmade in the USA section, we'll be happy to see you and if you mention this blog post, we'll give you a small gift!
This it the show where shops and other retail businesses come from Pennsylvania, Maryland, New Jersey (and probably other states) to discover and order merchandise. Many are coming to stock their businesses for Christmas. We will be showing our special holiday packaging.
For the holidays, we repackage 4 of our soaps, spritzes and lotions specifically for the season. We offer Bayberry, Citrus Spruce, Double Mint and Holiday Wine (Merlot.)
Although we are pretty well immersed in preparing for the show, we are also stocking like crazy so we will be able to fill all the orders we hope to bring home with us!
On Monday, we were making a number of soaps and my niece, Molly, was observing. She was taken by the way we make our marbled soaps and took a picture as I poured a batch of Rosemary soap into the mold. Our rosemary soap is scented with pure rosemary essential oil and the swirl itself is a lovely golden color which comes from powdered rosemary herb that we add to a part of the batch.
