Items being restocked

We are working feverishly to restock all the sold-out items in our shops! Every year we sell out of LOTS of items during our End-Of-Year Clearance Sale during the last week of the year. The 2012 sale produced the same results. If you visit any of our online marketplaces, you will see that MANY items have been taken down or have been marked as sold-out. We will be spending the next couple months restocking these items. It takes awhile to get everything back in stock, so be patient with us! And FYI...our soap takes the longest to get back in stock because of the long cure time. We try to restock the soap based on popularity of the scents.

Today we just restocked a few lotion sticks, including Unscented, Spellbound and Warm Vanilla Sugar. (we will be restocking all the time, but will only occasionally be posting notices)
3 Lotion Sticks BACK IN STOCK!

Rolling out some seasonal faves!

Woohoo....fall is here! Isn't it just the BEST season? I know it's my favorite. I love wearing a certain sweater around the house, over every outfit, almost daily. It's like a warm hug....ahhhhh! I also love pulling my swing coat & pea coat out from the back of the closet....LOVE them....and miss them in the off-seasons. But, of course, one of the most fun things about fall is getting ready for the holidays. And besides all the excitement at home, the fun is also building in the soap kitchen! It's time to welcome back our autumn/winter limited edition handmade soap in an amazing array of sentimental scents & fun shapes. A few of our seasonal soap scents are now available...with many more coming out in the next week or so. Watch for our tweets to find out when your favorite is back!

So far, we have welcomed back Pumpkin Spice in it's sweet little pumpkin shape:
Pumpkin Spice Handmade Soap
and Bayberry Spice in a classic oak leaf shape:
Bayberry Spice Handmade Soap

Both are perfect for your fall entertaining and gift-giving needs! Of course, you can always keep them all for yourself....we won't tell!

You can find these fall favorites in any of our online shops: Website, Etsy, Artfire or Zibbet

Preparing for the holiday RUSH

It's that time of year again....time for our little handmade soap business to become a mini factory! Soap bars are flying by like beer bottles on the line in the Laverne & Shirley opening. (did that just totally show my age? or was it the use of the word TOTALLY? LOL!)

We have been making TONS of soap in seasonal scents, special shapes, building inventory of our 'regular' fragrances & restocking scents that we offer in limited quantity. Boy, oh boy, does it smell good in here! All the little soapies are nestled & snug on our curing rack waiting for their time to shine! The photo below is a few years old & shows how we used to have soap curing. Now we have one of those rolling baking racks with a gazillion shelves. It is able to temporarily house TONS & TONS of curing soap....and it's mobile! Thank goodness for that rack, it was one of the best purchases ever. Although, we need to get a second one now.
What else is going on? A few new ideas are currently being worked out. Local craft shows have been booked. Black Friday sales & giveaway details are being planned. In fact, we *just* placed an order for a special FREE giveaway for our Black Friday sale. We're not telling what it is'll have to stay tuned to find out all the details!

Well, I  guess that is all for the update for now. I'll be posting, tweeting & blogging when items become ready for purchase. So....stay tuned for the Gingerbread Man's return announcement!

We would LOVE to win an Intuit Hiring Grant for Concord Soap! Oh....the things we could do!

Newer items that have been added to our ever-growing list of products:

We've had such a GREAT reaction to our laundry soap! People everywhere are now enjoying the menial task of doing laundry now! You only need 1 tablespoon to clean an entire load of laundry. Give it a try....we have small 3oz samplers available.

Woohoo! Only 5 more states until we've shipped to every state!

Since I had some free time today (sarcasm), I decided that my time would be well spent by checking how many of the 50 states we have shipped our goodies to. (again, sarcasm) To my surprise, we've almost shipped to every state in the country, 45 out of 50! WOW! I was really surprised....I knew we had shipped to most of the states, but I was expecting more like 40 or so. Of course, the next question you are all wondering is...which 5 states have we NOT shipped to?

Here's the list: 
Is it weird that 4 out of the 5 states begin with an N?'s a challenge.....if you place an order in our Etsy shop to be shipped to one of these 5 listed states you'll get 15% off in our quest to conquer the country!! (you don't have to live there, it can be shipped to a gift recipient in 1 of the 5 states, as well)
Use code: ConquerUSA15 to get 15% off at

And, YES, we will be making up a world map plot conquering the entire globe! Mwahahahaha!

NO...we didn't fall off the face of the blogosphere...

We're still HERE! lol Well...what can I say? Ummmm...I am really bad at keeping this blog up-to-date! Here's what we have been up to...
BEER Soap!

We had a very busy Black Friday-Cyber Monday 2010 weekend. Our BEER SOAP was blogged about & we were selling it faster than we could make it! Throughout Nov & Dec, we participated in our usual local craft shows & even added a new one in Mayfield Village, Ohio. Then it was the mad rush of holiday shopping that kept us busy. But nothing compares to how busy we get during our Annual Half Off End-of-Year Clearance Sale!!! Phew...that week is sooooo CRAZY!! We sold almost every last bar of soap that we had! At the end of the week, we had about 10 bars of soap left...that's it!

Red Clover Tea Soap
So, as you can imagine, we have been busy busy busy restocking all our inventory. In fact, we are STILL working to restock lots of our regulars...and some scents that have already been restocked (like our MOST popular, Red Clover Tea Soap) are already getting low again! So, as you can tell, we are keeping very busy. So forgive us for not posting more often!
As a very special thank you to our blog followers, we are offering a coupon code that you can use at our Etsy shop, http:/// Use code BLOG25 to get 25% off your entire order!!
Thank you for a wonderful 2010! We look forward to an even more amazing 2011! We look forward to being your supplier of high quality, handmade soap, bath & body care products!
