Congratulations to Jen at Healdsburg Soap Company! It’s the grand opening of her new shop today.
I phoned to congratulate her and she was positively ebullient. She said they had been busy all with well-wishers and shoppers. The big hit for the day is the Moroccan Fig and Jen reported that the Champagne Soap were also selling like crazy.
I met Jen two years ago at the National Soap Guild conference. I immediately was taken with her positive attitude, fearless confidence and driven personality. Though I haven’t been to Sonoma County to visit her shop, it is on my to-do list for next year! I’ve been saving up my airline miles and I’ll get to her shop (and maybe a little r & r in Sonoma County, California) next year.
In the meantime, a big positive shout-out to Jen for taking the leap and opening her first shop. We wish you much success and joyous days, making soap and delighting customers every day.
