I am so excited, I had to come post this. I have been making soap for a while now using Suzanne’s tutorials until I got comfortable and then venturing out into new territory. I decided finally to try to sell some of it locally and within five minutes of posting on a local website, I had sold 13 bars!!! I am going to expand this idea by taking samples to the many shops in town to see if I can’t peddle my wares using their overhead! I am so excited. Thank you again Suzanne and Chickens in the Road for giving me the knowledge to conquer this skill! I just had to share with everyone!

There are a few farm women here that put a basket of soap on the check out counter in the local hardware store and at the farmer markets.

I’ve seen homemade soap in baskets at a small town beauty salon.
