We did something new this winter. Typically, we collapse in January and recover from the whirlwind of Christmas craft fairs that run from late October to mid-December.

Our customers were clogging the walkway, actually. A woman several customers away called to me, “Do you live in Briargate, […]

The Skinny on Skin and Chemicals

Introducing Black Currant Vanilla Body Mousse

I actually had this scent ready for September. I thought it would be perfect for those warm summerlike days that turn into cool refreshing nights. Think warm berries with vanilla ice cream, mmmm.
