The Soap Tribune, Issue #224--one more time
August 10, 2023
new storeWhile Andy has been making soap, I have been in the office working diligently to keep up the pace of running a small business. I thought I would be finishing a really cool article I've been working on for the past few weeks and that I would be publishing it this week. It will have to wait.
Because of unannounced changes to our online store, we made a decision to move it, once again. This is a big task that I only have a few days to complete it.
There was a banking change with my online store provider, that I did not agree with. They changed how their customers pay for their services. What they don't tell you, is there are also changes in how accessible your income will be. As an online store owner, I had to figure this out while I was on the phone with a customer service representative.
Every time I asked a question concerning a revelation I was having about their new services, I was met with silence. That was last Friday. I decided to move the store and have been working on it since.
When you have an online store, you pay for the service. I opt for the yearly fee. My year is up this coming Sunday. So I'm hurrying.
The good news is, I will have a brand new state of the art website, when I finish building it. You should have no trouble accessing it, since the address is the same as usual. ithacasoap.com
Please visit the new store, serf around, and let me know what you think. The blog section of the website should be unchanged. soapisbest.com
Thank you for listening and supporting us! We really appreciate you.
Farmers MarketA friend came to visit while I was putting my blueberry bounty in my dehydrator. He wad just frozen his yearly supply. We froze ours for years, but the dehydrated are so much better, in my opinion. I gave my friend a few to sample and he agreed.

3 reasonsLet's all put our heads together and put a stop to manufacturing liquid soap and packaging it in plastic bottles.
I made a little marketing ad and put it all over my social media. If you know anyone in the soap manufacturing industry ( a company, let's say about 5k times bigger than us, lol), casually mention that you have the answer to the pressing plastic bottle issue in the personal care industry.
