We have made such lovely things since our disaster (see previous post and F'ugly) -4 huge Christmas batches and 8 new fun soaps as well as our market leader and best Olive oil soap ever - Puro.

Shelley had found some great local contacts but it seems, they could not supply us on a regular basis, then the barman and general village oracle Artur told Shelley about another goat farm not too far from our village, gave us directions and we went. Found a really lovely Portuguese goat farm, all goats, they looked lovely, really well looked after with free access to a nice pasture, day and night (very rare) and very pretty.

|Everyday goats bells for when they forage far from home|
|Such a fantastic selection, the really big goats bells right down to the little babies|
|The really special ceremonial bells used during village parades - these are huge!|
We have also been working on our new display, driven a little by Naturally Made Soaps we decided to go for fabulous, handmade wooden trug style display boxes, coloured in a fantastic aray of tints that would show off our soaps to their best, as well as a smaller, more subtle set to display our exclusive Puro soaps.

|Beginnings of colour, just wait until you see them all done!|
