Great Market Today!

We had a great time today at the pop up A Day For Us market for women and minority run businesses! The organizers did a great job and turnout was fabulous despite the cold weather. Also, it supported a good cause – we and other vendors contributed 15% of our sales to the Virginia Anti Violence Project. You can donate here.

 We also have to give a huge thank you to our friends and family who came out to support us and the other vendors. It was great to break from this cold weather and get to see so many smiling faces. We would have nothing without our friends and family. They also watched the kids for us so we could get down to the business of vending. 

Items we still have for sale:

1 oz or 2 oz tinctures of: lemon balm, elecampagne, elderberry, milky oats, crampbark, red raspberry, yarrow, mullein $8 or $15

Smoke Less For Success Herbal Tea 1/2 or 1 oz – mullein, wood betony, chamomile, lemon balm, and cinnamon $3-$6

Lavender and Calendula Lip Healing Balm – in natural or pink shimmer $2.50 a tube, $4 a tin, containing organic shea butter, beeswax, calendula oil, lavender oil, lavender essential oil, and pink mica for the pink version

We also have a stock of furniture for sale. We can do custom pieces and signs for others as well.
