"The Traveling Penny was created from our love for adventure and exploring. Our unique pieces are handcrafted using repurposed, vintage coins, especially pennies. Each piece we create is thought of as a tiny token to take with you wherever you go--a small symbol of exploration and story telling that has traveled along through the hands of strangers. Carry them with you & keep them close!" -The Traveling Penny
"I have been crafting cold process soap on and off for over 20 years now and love it! I really enjoy the creativity and the science behind soap making. About 10 years ago I started making wood wick candles as well. I love the crackle sound they make when they are burning! I am always learning, creating and perfecting my skills whether it be bath and body products or candles.
I have always wanted to turn this into a full time business but never seem to have the time to really invest in a new start up, but as I was getting older I started getting tired of saying I am going to do this one day, and as they say in the south "Getter Done". I am finally after all these years pursuing my passion and dream! Never Give Up!" -Southern E-Scentuals
"We’re a small business selling handmade dog bandanas and other accessories! We make the best products so you and your pup can live Gatsby Style." -Gatsby Style
"Once you start digging into the wonderful world of goat milk, you'll quickly discover the many uses. There are numerous benefits of goat milk all the way from gut health to skincare. The pH in goat milk is the same as your skin so there's no disruption in your skin's natural microbiome. This is especially good news if you have skin issues and are looking for more natural options. Many of my customers have found relief from dry, itchy skin or other skin conditions like dandruff or eczema.*
My journey with goat milk began as a result of a cow dairy allergy. I wasn't keen on non-dairy alternatives and I came across information on goat milk and how much easier it can be digested because of the shorter fat molecules. I began purchasing goat milk from a local farm and then made the jump to starting my own dairy goat farm in September 2017. I began making/selling soap and other skincare products so others could benefit from goat milk the way I do.
Our goat milk soaps, lotions and bath soaks are made with the milk from our own farm. We source phthalate/paraben/sulfate free fragrances and care about what goes into our products. We also have a collection of products made with essential oils if you prefer all natural ingredients. Give our soaps a try and you'll discover how much better your skin can feel."
