     Jon and I are having fun mixing up some great craft beers from Derrick Chapman into our amazing ‘beered and body bars’. We also made some ‘Coffee Oatmeal Stout Soap’; same Great, limited edition soap we made for you last year, with the same Great scent! The smell is filling our house and I love it! It’s so warm and earthy, smells like fall.  Look for our beer soap at Dwell Local, Autonomy tattoo and on our website in October.

The Weathered & Rusty Market 2014

05 October, 2014 0 comments Leave a comment

     Today is our last day at The Weathered & Rusty Market. Despite the 'lip balmy' temperatures, rain and wind we have had a lot of fun and met some great folks the past couple of days. We saw old friends and made new ones. We met returning customers who were given great soap as gifts and came back for more.
     It was fun making gift boxes with my daughters, Tia and Zoe. We honored our rescue dog “Lulah” on a couple boxes we donated to the silent auction for Small Dog Rescue of Minnesota. It felt really good to help raise some money for this important work in our community. Because we had recently lost our dog we wanted to do a little something extra for the cause and donated 10% of our profits from our sales Friday to Small Dog Rescue of Minnesota.
     We have had the best vendor neighbors at the Weathered & Rusty Market selling beautifully handmade products. I have been admiring their work and wish I could buy something from all of them. Zoe and I will highlight some of their amazing work on Instagram and Facebook this morning. If you haven't made it out to the Olmsted County fairgrounds yet, we hope to see you today!
