21 years of soap and lip balm

Has it been that long?

21 years of soap making. And I've spent 32 years living in the Ithaca Community. I have grown up here and still feel like I have so much to learn. Read below for a celebration gift.

As the world changes, we change with it. I have received so much help and direction with the new web site from some of you. I really appreciate it. There are things I miss, or back burner and then forget about, so direction is welcome.

For those of you who have been with us for most or all 21 years(!!), remember these boxes?

Back in those days, I spent my days toiling over bubbling vats of magic tweaking recipes to fit my personal care heart's desires.

As an anniversary gift, put the code "happy21styear" in the notes section of your order to receive a free LiXTiK Lip Balm on orders over $32.00. Also select which flavor/scent LiXTiK you would like. Choose from

Our celebration free lip balm offer is good on orders from today through 12/17 Beeswax Lip Balm

The old website is no longer. I will send one more e mail from it in the next few days and then delete it.

Rutabaga Curl 12/19/20

If you've never curled, this is usually a game played on ice with these tea kettle looking pucks, that you slide in an attempt to hit a target in a concentric circle court. Sort of like shuffleboard or bowling.

We, at The Ithaca Farmers Market's International Rutabaga Curl, have an agricultural twist and play with regulation rutabagas. These are grown specifically for the game. You can come as your own hand picked team, a protester, a cheerleader, a single player, a spectator.

Dress in costume, sporting attire, headdress. Whatever strikes you as appropriate for the player you wish to be. This is another occasion where masks can be fun.

We have had teams travel from the other side of the world to play and been featured on NPR's "It's only a Game"

Dress for the cold temps. This is a winter sport. Our court is in the market pavilion. I have no idea how things will play out this year, but usually there's a fire to warm your hands, and venders feature hot cider and hot chocolate, and rutabaga treats.

All ages welcome. Prizes. Lots of laughing. IFM Rutabaga Curl
