Holiday Break!

Our website is officially closed for the year. I want to thank all my faithful returning customers for their continued business this year, and to all the new customers that have found their way to our little soap business. Welcome and thank you too!

I am not done working, not by a long shot. My wholesale customers are still clamoring for more soap before "the day" arrives. The last of the web orders are going out tomorrow (Saturday). And a few miscellaneous orders are to be delivered next week about town. Busy, busy!

I can fit in that very last minute order up to the 24th if you live in Nevada County, just give me a call. After that tho, I will be incommunicado from December 25th through January 4th. Hey, even your humble soap maker needs a rest.

Anyway, thank you again for supporting our business with your purchases. I look forward to a busy 2010, I'm already planning my spring soap line, very exciting!

Merry Christmas from all of us at Frontier Angel Soap. May 2010 find you healthy, happy and prosperous.

Rained Out...

For the first time in *four* years vending at Cornish Christmas, we were rained out. Bummer. I hate missing a show. We actually did set up our booth. It was exciting getting the lighting plugged in and up while pools of water were collecting in the roof of our awning. I count it a blessing that no one got electrocuted. I put out my shelf displays and noticed that everything had a fine mist on it already. I looked up, my two faithful and non-complaining helpers were drenched, as was I, and I knew it was time to call the game on account of rain.

I hope no one was disappointed and looking for my soap. I'm hoping that next Friday, our last night vending, will be much more pleasant. If anyone needs soap before Christmas, please call 530-274-3711. I can get it to you if you are in or around town.

Signs of the Season

Winding down now to our last two shows of the year. December 11th and December 18th are the last two nights of Cornish Christmas. Join us in historic downtown Grass Valley for some holiday cheer the old fashioned way...roasted chestnuts, carolers and more.

A fine selection of local crafts are being sold, a few of my favorites; bags of handmade toffee, yummy baked goods, reindeers made from twigs, and faux fur head warmers with matching scarves. In the food department, it's hard to beat our neighbors to the left of our booth, they sell the most amazing tacos. Down on Main Street, look for the deep fried pretzels. Sinfully good, I ate two of them last Friday night.

So see, there is plenty of old time holiday fun to be found in the heart of the gold country.

I forgot to mention, we got our first nice snow of the season. You might catch a glimpse of the white stuff on the way up, but rest assured, the roads are clear and safe to travel.
