Curing, Pouring & Boxing Up Some Soap for the Big Day!

We are preparing for the Big Day After Thanksgiving! We are currently mixing, pouring & labeling lots of goodies for the shelves. We have over 600 bars of soap curing! This is no small task for it takes at least 6 weeks for these bad boys to cure. But have no fear, the soap will be here! Early birds will cash in on some extra savings at 8am on Friday, however if you can't make it out that early, we will be open until 6pm and 5pm on Saturday. Check back on this blog to make sure you are up to date on the latest savings!
Happy Thanksgiving! We are thankful for each and every one of you!

NYC Marathon 2010!

Wow. What a year we have had! We gave the shop a face lift, added some new products, tightened up some loose ends, partnered up with a couple of new ventures, went to the Emmy Awards and sponsored a runner in the NYC marathon.
I have got to say...this was one of the best things we sponsored all year. It all started over a sippy in a joint in NYC while working at the Emmy gig. George (pictured above) was talking about running the NYC Marathon and my ears perked up! A second consecutive visit to NYC and another sippy later, I agreed to get this fella geared up with some HSCo attire. It actually turned out to be a last minute thing, but our LOCAL folks in Asheville NC from On a Roll Screenprinting were able to get this shirt ordered, printed and sent out within 2 days. Can't beat the local support!
George finished in 3:18 and we were so proud to see this pic of him! On the back of the shirt it read "George is FAST & DIRTY"! What a trooper he was to represent HSCo!
Hopefully next year I will be running the NYC Marathon with a WaynesVegas crew!
Thanks again for listening to this crazy ole soap chic! Till next time...
