Like most makers, it is our hobby that leads us to our business in the first place. I started making soap 8 years ago simply as a way to be creative while staying home raising my babies. Soap making was that little bit of me time I could fit in between feedings, playing and cleaning. Not to mention everyone in my house is male, including the cats, so I tend to fancy some girl time and play with glitter and rainbows. An online business allowed me to work from home, focus first on my family. and grow Sunbasilgarden.etsy to a full time job closing in on 25,000 Etsy sales. I also extended our line to wholesale and branched out on my own website. PS. Thank you for visiting me here.
But this September, something really exciting happened to take my business to a new level. You can now find Sunbasilgarden soaps in 3 large retail malls including the very popular King of Prussia. I am so excited to be working with a retail bath company, Bath Fusion and their support of handmade means the world to me. So for those folks in New Jersey and Philadelphia, be on the lookout while doing your holiday shopping this year. I am including some behind the scenes pictures and so happy to say the order was completed on time.
