We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for coming to see us in New Orleans and Baton Rouge last weekend. We spend a lot of time working outside the public eye – sometimes with just deer and bunnies for company outside of the workshop. It means a lot to us when you come meet us at shows. It’s good to see the faces behind the tweets, emails, pins, and posts on Facebook and G+. So again, thank you. We love hearing from you and love seeing you just as much.

Hope you can meet is in Covington (LA), Cypress (TX), or Baton Rouge in December.

It’s Double-Duty Weekend: NOLA and Baton Rouge Bound!

November is one of Noir Natural’s busiest months.   We travel all over the south for shows, but there is nothing like coming home.

Baton Rouge and NOLA this weekend? Yes! Come see us at the Helen Brett Show, Broadmoor Arts & Crafts Show, or both!

And this weekend, we’re coming home and doing double-duty.  We’ll back in Louisiana for an extended weekend of shows.  NOLA and Baton Rouge, baby!  Join us starting Thursday, November 15 through Sunday, November 19.

On Thursday we’ll be in New Orleans for the Helen Brett International Jewelry and Gift Show at the Morial Convention Center.  We love this one because we get to see so many people at this four day show.  And being back home makes us happy, too.  This is an industry show, but is also open to the public. Qualified buyers get in free — store owners, owner’s spouses, and employees, that means you.  On Friday, attendees can purchase up to two guest badges for $20 each.  No one under the age of 16 is permitted at this one.  Specialty arts, crafts, jewelry, apparel and accessories, artwork, and gourmet food are among the offered items from hundreds of vendors.   The show takes over  Halls H-J in the convention center and we’ll be in booth 1505.  The show runs from Thursday through Sunday.  On Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, drop by anytime from Saturday 10 am – 6 pm.  On Sunday, join us from 10 am – 5 pm.  We hope to see you at 900 Convention Center Boulevard!

If you’re not up for a drive to NOLA, how does Baton Rouge grab you?  Join us in sharing Buccaneer Pride at the Broadmoor Arts & Craft Festival at Broadmoor High School. Proceeds from this show helps the Bucs cover equipment costs, trips for the band and choir, and teacher workshop costs.  Help the school and find what you
seek from the 250 artisans from seven states.  Join us on Friday, November 16th from 3 pm to 9 pm and Saturday from 9 am – 4 pm.  Admission is just $3 and shuttle buses
will run from Broadmoor Shopping Center and Broadmoor Middle School.  This is the 39th annual festival and our second time here.  We’ve been looking forward to this one all year!

As always, we’ll have an assortment of vegan coconut milk and goat’s milk soapslotionsanti-aging body buttersDead Sea Saltbody scrubsbath treatments, and maskssoy wax cubes and wax warmers, our new lip balms, and more at both shows.  And don’t forget the show special:  buy and three items and get a fourth of equal or lesser value for free.

We haven’t done double-duty in a while.  We’re not scared; we’re excited!

Semi-Wordless Wednesday: The Soapdish

Poor, often ignored soap dish.  Did you know that the right one will help natural soap last longer?  Proper drainage allows the soap dry out and drier soap lasts longer.  Our yellow pine soap dish has deep ridges to help air circulate around the bar and is just $4.  Treat your goat’s milk or vegan coconut milk soap to the best soap dish
