A message from Noir Naturals’ owner: A look back and to the future

We’ve had a year and a half in 2013.  Noir Naturals’ owner wanted to share a few words with you.  

As we embark on 2014 I wanted to do a quick look-back at 2013.  In August we opened our retail store, but my wife and I had to make a tough decision in November to close the retail store, due to my health.  My hours at the store robbed me of time to fully focus on my recovery.  With the flexible work schedule I now have, I am able to attend my various weekly pulmonary rehab sessions, and rest in between my work. Having another retail store in the future is not out of the question. For now however my focus needs to be on my recovery.

We are still located in Ponchatoula and all customers are welcomed to visit my workshop.  Simply give us a call to set an appointment to come by.  Our online store is always open 24/7 and we’ll meet some of you throughout the year at craft fairs and shows like we always do.  This Fall we were able to see quite a few online customers face to face at shows.  It’s always a pleasure to meet you in person.

I am very pleased to report that 2013 was a great year for our sales.  We saw a vast increase in individual sales and wholesale accounts.  We added another member to our team and have a number of exciting product plans for 2014.

Thank you for being loyal customers of Noir Naturals. We wish you all a prosperous New Year!

Remember, we’re closed on December 31 and January 1 to celebrate the new year.  Any orders received on those days will be filled on January 2.

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.

On Saturday October 26 and Sunday the 27th, we’ll be back in Vacherie.  This will be our first trip to Oak Alley since we opened the retail store and we’ll have new products with us.  Three new coconut milk vegan soaps, a selection of fall and holiday soy wax cubes, and our new Hair and Scalp Oil will all be on hand.  We’ll also have our reformulated Dead Sea Mud Mask and 100% Pure Argan Oil with us.

Will you join us on Saturday or Sunday?

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.
