Black Friday / Cyber Monday

It's Friday. You know, the official first day for holiday gift shopping. And cyber monday is the day shopping on the internet increases. In that spirit, Frontier Angel Soap will be offering some really cool specials starting Friday, November 28th and running through the weekend (special ends December 2nd).

I don't want to give away all my surprises, but here's a sneak peek what we'll offer: a discount with every order over $15, loads of FREE soap samples, and raffles that will run throughout the weekend. A purchase will give you one entry into the raffles. Yes, there will be more than one chance for you to win free soap!

I may throw in the random free shipping on a couple lucky shoppers just for fun. Even if you don't get free shipping, everyone will come away with something extra. I'm looking forward to this event, I hope you'll join us! I will be online all day Friday and Monday to help anyone with questions, please feel free to email me. Bookmark our website now!

And for those of you who live in Nevada County and surrounding areas, don't forget that Cornish Christmas begins Friday, November 28th, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Our booth is located in the usual spot, the exact corner of Mill and Main Streets, in front of Dave's Shoe Repair.

Products that we're offering this year:
  • Shaving soap with brush (for him)
  • Single gift boxed soap, ready for giving, gift tag included
  • Special edition goat milk soap gift boxes
  • Whipped shea butter
  • Complexion soap
  • And our usual selection of essential oil soap sold per bar
We may offer a few other items, but you'll just have to come visit us to see what's new!

Pink is the color of October

The "Paint the Town Pink" event on October 30th was a big success! It feels really good to contribute to a good cause, meet new people (and many current customers), and snack on goodies. I'm not sure how the event organizers knew of my love for Lazy Dog ice cream, but they put my booth right next to their signature pink truck! They had this great display of pink topped cupcakes and cookies...I must confess that the temptation was too great and I helped myself to more than one.

I had plenty of soap samples to hand out. I filled my big punch bowl numerous times. It made my heart happy to see people rooting through there looking for their favorite scent. Many took more than one sample, but hey, somehow I totally understand.

If you'd like another opportunity to buy our soap, I have a couple shows coming up. A real small one at Eskaton Village in Grass Valley. It's being held Saturday, November 15, 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. I'll have a very small display there, along with my gift sets. Coffee and snacks are being sold, proceeds going to the Arthritis foundation.

Also, Cornish Christmas is approaching FAST! It starts Friday, November 28th, the day after Thanksgiving. I'll have my usual booth set up. I'm not sure of my location yet, but I'm hoping for the same spot as last year. The corner of Mill and Main streets, right in front of our friend's store, Dave's Shoe Repair.

If you've never been to Cornish Christmas and you live in California, this event is worth the drive (45 minutes north of Sacramento). If everyday life has depleted your Christmas spirit, this event will cure even the most humbug of moods. You'll meet folks dressed in victorian costume or maybe you'll even meet an elf! Food, local crafts, carolers, name it, we've got it. It's usually pretty chilly, so dress warmly. Come and get some Christmas cheer!

Speaking of Cornish Christmas, I still have plenty of work to do before then. Excuse me while I get back in the workshop...more later.
