Soaps and Such By Katrina
Our business continues to grow THANKS to each one of you and your support. We also want to send out SPECIAL THANKS to Miss Marandia who helped us throughout the summer months. She is now back in school and studying harder than ever. We continue our weekly spot with The Historic Marion Tailgate Market which has been in full swing since May with Local Produce and Fresh Baked Goodies. We are now transitioning into the Local Fall Produce (which includes greens, turnips, sweet potatoes, fall lettuce, honey, jams, jellies) along with the Fresh Baked Goodies (which includes sourdough breads, cupcakes, cookies) that you have come to expect at the Market. We also started bringing in Local Handmade Crafters, who will be at the Market throughout the latter part of the Market season. Local Crafters started on September 3rd and will be available until December 17th. Come out and show your support of these folks and the products that they produce and bring to the market. We are also still committed to the Marketplace at the Mills which takes place at the Union Mills Learning Center every Friday night from 5pm til 9pm. Marketplace at the Mills and Music at the Mills is a great local event for families to gather together and enjoy a good meal, Great Musicians and Music and to interact with Local Artisans. Come out and visit the Union Mills Learning Center and see what a wonderful job the Board Members and Community are doing with this Old School. Their efforts are very obvious in the improvements that have taken place in the 2012 and 2013. Lots of things happening and we want you to be a part. Come and check it out for yourself and support your Local Musicians and Artisans. Many other events that we will be participating in throughout the rest of the year, We hope to get the opportunity to see you and spend some time chatting and catching up on what has been happening with you during 2013. WELCOME TO FALL...YA'LL...

My name is Katrina and I am a new small business owner in a sole proprietor role. In 2011, I retired with 20 years of service, from a major retail corporation to pursue my goal of owning my own business and carrying on the Art of Soapmaking, Handmade Stitchery and other Handmade Crafts as well as making Homemade Breads. I am sure that this will be a great journey and that I have a lot to learn along the path that I now travel as a business owner. Blogging is a new adventure for me. So here we go...Hang On...
