Message from Noir Naturals’ owner: Changes

Hi everyone,
 
It is with deep regret to share the news on a difficult decision my wife and I had to make. Effective December 22nd we will be closing the store due to my health. We really enjoyed having the store which made it an even harder decision. We made some great connections, gained new customers and major wholesale accounts as well.
 
During my recent hospitalization over the week of Thanksgiving my pulmonologist gave me a serious warning that I needed to reduce my work schedule to focus more on my health. Having to be in the store 40+ hours of the week was not helping my recovery along, and the doctor advised that if I continue at this rate I could have a fatal end. With the store closed and a part-time flexible weekly schedule, I will be able to fully concentrate on my pulmonary rehab and get better at a faster pace. I am getting better currently, but slower than I should be.
 
The good news is that though the store is closing, Noir Naturals is not. We will open by appointment and everyone is welcomed to come by to shop like in the past, or catch a glimpse of products being made. Just like in the past you can contact us and let us know when you would like to come by and we’ll be waiting for you. Our telephone number will remain the same and we will still be at all our regular shows, and a few news ones in 2014. We are also working on our list of new products for next year, all of which you requested and we are very excited.
 
We will consider a store again in the future but right now my recovery is paramount. We wish to thank you for all of your support, concern, well wishes and prayer over the past year. God bless!
 
Charles

We cannot wait to see these tour guides again!

We’re like kids on Christmas break – excited, giddy, and downright bouncy.  Oak Alley Plantation does it to us every time.  We always say this, but this arts and crafts festival will be the best.

New store hours and more

Check out our new beeswax cubes!

Happy Fall!  We just plain love this time of year.  The temperature starts to change, nights get a little longer, and we hit the road.  We love the fall show season and have a few stops planned.  Before we hit the road, we made some changes.

First, we’ve changed our store hours.  Not by much, but we think you’ll like it. Come see us from 10 am until 6 pm Tuesday through Friday and 9-3 on Saturday.  We’re closed on Sundays and Mondays.

We’re adding new products to the inventory.  New coconut milk vegan soaps are coming and new beeswax cubes are in the works.  Everyl-Ann made her first batch this past weekend while running the shop. In addition, keep your eyes open for the 2013 line of fall and holiday scented soaps and wax cubes.

Finally, we’ve tweaked our show schedule a bit.  Our first stop is in Hammond this weekend.  On Friday, September 27, join us at the 2013 Brews Arts Festival.  This one is strictly for the 21 and over crowd.  From 5-9 pm enjoy music, arts and crafts from local and regional artists, live demonstrations, food by Kevin Cote, fresh homemade sangria, and an extensive selection of beer.  Tickets are $20 per person in advance or $25  at the door.  Get your advance tickets from the Hammond Arts Center during regular gallery hours, by phone at 985-542-7113, or online.  Hope to see you on Friday behind the Arts Center in the Morrison Alley parking lot.

Yes, Fall is Noir Naturals’ prime time!  Learn more about us at NoirNaturals.com, Facebook, Twitter, G+, or Pinterest.


Changes in our fundraising program

cover soaps

Try a fundraiser that offers something useful – our natural, handmade soaps!

It’s that time of year already.  Kids of all ages are making the rounds with multiple fundraising catalogs and we wonder how – and if – we’ll find anything we can use for ourselves or as gifts.  With Noir Naturals’ fundraising program, you know you have a product everyone can use.  We launched our fundraising program to offer something different and think the new changes will make it even easier for your organization to stand out and earn more.

Noir Naturals program is available for individual student and student groups of all ages, pre-K through college, to generate income for trips and various causes.  Adult mission and ministry groups are welcome as well.

We now offer three options for our fundraisers.  Customers can purchase bars online from a personalized fundraising website like Haley’s, offline via catalog, or at our retail location in Ponchatoula.

We’ve also increased your organization’s profit on each bar.  Instead of $1.50, your group can earn $2.50 per bar.  There is a small minimum target – just 50 bars.  If each child sells one to two bars, the minimum will be met in no time.   And at prices at just $5 or $6 each, customers may buy more than one bar just because.

There is still no upfront cost unless your organization wants to pre-purchase bars to sell at an event. Imagine setting up a table at the Fall or Holiday Festival and selling out.  You could launch your fundraiser then and have customers swing by Noir Naturals to purchase more.

All of our goat’s milk and coconut milk vegan soap bars are available including our Baby Noir Soaps, Asta Doggie Soaps, and new Powder Puff Goat’s Milk Soap.

Let us help your child’s school, daycare center, club, or group raise money for trips, projects, and more.
