|Some of our Fish Soaps for Upcoming Island Shows|
We are gearing up for three shows on South Padre Island in February. If you are anywhere in the area, please come see us...Well, go to the beach first, and THEN come see us!
On February 2, 2013, We will be at SPICE, South Padre Island Chili Expo...Actually, it's a CHILI & BEAN COOK OFF! It will be held at Louie's Backyard on South Padre Island. Are you kidding me? Chili and beans? and Louie's Backyard? Three of my favorites! I'll have to sneak out of my booth and try some of those entries! They are also having a little "mercado" outside, a series of vendors selling various wares. That's where we will be. Look for us. And the event is for charity...Did I mention that? A breast cancer charity...Walk for Women....We are so pleased to be a part of it. And we even have a Pink Warrior soap in honor of this.
Then, on February 9, we will be a vendor in the Winter Outdoor Wildlife Expo! This is a HUGE event! This is their 19th year, so you know it's gonna be a hit! The event is open all day, from 8:00-4:00 at the South Padre Island Convention Center. Check out their facebook page for a look at their program. It's amazing!
Winter Outdoor Wildlife Expo
The raptor guy is going to be there. Do I need to say more? I'm seriously going to have to tie David down in my booth if I'm going to get any help from him at all....He will definitely NOT be thinking about soap...
Then, we will be debuting our new deodorants...well, actually we have already shown them at the SPI market. They were a great hit!
I have been wanting to make a deodorant with no aluminum for a long time, and we finally did it...We have two types. The first one is made with a baking soda base and the second one has a cocoa butter and tea tree oil base...We call our new line Padre Pits...ha..The deodorants come in two sizes, a trial size and a regular size. We will be putting these on our website soon. The white one is scented with spearmint eucalyptus and the second one is an orange spice.
Of course, every Sunday you can find us at the South Padre Island Farmer's Market from 11:00-1:00. If you haven't been there yet, you really need to try and visit. It's hard to describe the fun of shopping at a farmer's market with a backdrop of parasailers floating in the breeze, the sounds of sea gulls serenading you and the smell of the ocean filling your nostrils...It's just a magical experience...and the produce, of course..yes, they have that there, too...
They have every kind of produce that you can imagine (in season)...and it's organic....and usually heirloom..and so so interesting...I mean, you can find black tomatoes, purple cauliflower, just a plethora of interesting varieties that you will never see in a grocery store...and the kettle popcorn...mmmm...and even fresh eggs and grass fed beef...oh, and there's a honey lady...and baked goods...and LIVE music...what more could you want? I should have been born a beach bum....It's really quite a place.
And every other Saturday, when we are not participating in a show, we are at the Brownsville Farmer's Market...which I'll talk about another time...also a fun place to visit...right next to the zoo...You can hear the....another time....adios
