Handmade handcrafted Coffee Soap - Java Bean Scrub---hmmmmm!

IT'S BACK! RE-FORMULATED! 

Contains Starbucks® coffee!

Coffee lovers, you can now slip into the biggest coffee pot---YOUR TUB! And did you know coffee is a natural deodorizer? The entire liquid portion of this soap (usually distilled water) is made with freshly brewed double-strength coffee, as well as we added a ribbon swirl of ground coffee thrown in for ever-so-light "scrub". It also makes a highly effective deodorizing HAND SOAP sink-side in the kitchen to help remove onion, garlic and just about any kind of smelliness you can cook-up! For some, well, we know you just love lathering up in your favorite brew as you sip a cup in your morning shower. What a way to WAKE UP!
No scent oils added whatsoever, however it smells like coffee from the coffee used to make it!

Black Sari Silk Ribbon Scarf, Hand-Knitted

This beautiful black loose-knit lacy scarf is the PERFECT accessory for casual or dress-up! The 100% sari silk ribbon has iridescent sheen up-close that looks almost like raven wings! An assortment of black wooden beads and black iridescent smaller beads grace the fringe and give it decidedly gypsy boho witchy flair!

Seven feet long (including fringe) and depending on how stretched out you stretch it, 10-14 inches in width. 

Can even be used as a light shawl to cover your shoulders! 

Care: Hand-wash in cool water with a mild soap (Woolite or Dawn) and rinse in cool water, squeezing out excess water, and lay flat to dry.

Vintage button and crochet lace embellished leather wrist cuff-bracelets.

Carpal tunnel sufferers (like ME!): Tired of ugly wrist supports when your wrists are flaring up??? (Gawd, I hate those things!) Well, I decided to *cute-up* my supports and offer some for sale as well......in the form of cuffs adorned in crocheted lace and vintage buttons!

Handmade Handcrafted Soap - Bar Soap User Conversion

Retailer Client email sent today: "Carol, I have to tell you a funny story. A long-time customer came into the shop today and asked what new liquid soaps I had in. I pointed her in the direction, and on her way she passed a display I had of your soaps. She bought 12 bars! And NO liquid soap! Funny how even non-bar-soap-users suddenly change their minds when they see your soap. Thought you'd enjoy that chuckle!" - Anna, CA
(Thank you, Anna! Yup---love to entice even non-bar-users! Muwhahaha!)
