Perfect time for a drive

With fall in the air, one of our favorite stress relief outings is simply driving around the Shepherd Mountain Lake area. It’s a lovely local hotspot and one that Shanda’s family use to go on Sunday drives after church. So for that reason, we decided on making a soap honoring the simple pleasure of a drive around the lake.

To make even more locally orientated, we had a photography contest for the picture on the soap bag. Let me tell you, I didn’t realize how many amazing pictures could be taken of the lake! Shanda and I selected the final three contestants, then we let our Facebook people choose the winning photo that would go on the bag.

The winner was Ariel Simms! We love the photo with it’s rich colors and the canoe laying where you just want to take it out on the water. We hope you enjoy this cool wintery linen scent handmade soap that goes with this special bag.

We are very please to announce that you will be able to find our Arcadia Valley Soap and MoSoap products this season at Missouri’s Montauk State Park Lodge and Fishing Shop!

 If you aren’t familiar with the park, it’s located about 2 hours south of our soap shop and is a great destination for those that love hiking, fly fishing and camping.  Quoting their website, “Montauk State Park’s premier attraction is trout fishing, and the Current River contains both rainbow and brown trout. The pristine waters and natural surroundings of the Current River are an excellent background for trout fishing. Trout season opens March 1 and lasts until Oct. 31”  Here’s a link to their fishing information page –

When you check in at the fishing shop, grab a bit to eat or check into the Lodge, you will pass their gift area.  There you will find our soaps and peppermint lip balm. 

 Currently, the soaps they have at the time of writing this are:

 So if you are looking for a great trip for the whole family, make sure to check into Montauk State Park.  We appreciate them greatly for offering our soaps!!!!
