Spring and Summer Activities

Crocheted WashclothsThis past week, I received a wonderful package of handmade crocheted washcloths, scrubbies, and bath puffs from my friend, Mary Ann Huslig. I am excited about offering these colorful accessories along with the usual soaps and bath treats; they will be a nice compliment for your own pampering needs, and for those fun gifts for special friends. The Bath Puffs are my personal favorite; I've been looking for something like that to add to our line-up for a long time! Thank you Mary Ann!

The 3rd Annual June Jaunt on June 6th - 8th is just around the corner and it marks the kick-off for our busy summer season. The event started in 2012 when several communities along K-96 banded together to create a fun-filled weekend for locals and visitors alike in Central and Western Kansas. In Great Bend, there is Outdoor Vendor Fair all day on Saturday, June 7th at Jack Kilby Square. Artisan Soaps will be there with a variety of soaps, bath salts, lotions, lip balms and other fun accessories---like colorful crocheted wash cloths and bath puffs! Come on out and stop for a visit!

After the June Jaunt, Artisan Soaps will be present again at the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings at the Great Bend Public Library. We still intend to make it back in time to have the soap shop opened at noon, though, we WILL be closed for a couple of Saturdays so that I can visit my folks on their 50th Anniversary next Saturday, and then help another friend get married the following Saturday. It's a busy time!
