New Tiki November

New Tiki November
We are so close to reopening our store with new packaging and are so excited! While soap never technically goes 'bad', it does lose its scent and can develop stearic acid precipitates over time (aka 'steric spots'), especially if the soap gets hot during transport.  To say thank you for being a loyal customer, to help clear out your shaving den, to replace a scent you d...

How Tiki Bar Soap Was Born

Me at my First Ever Craft Fair. I entered 2 Holiday shows in December of 2011.
Many people have asked me over the years 'How did you come up with the name Tiki Bar Soap anyway?'

Chicago Skyscape
