Every year the Daily Journal holds a vote for the best businesses in the Parkland area. The Parkland covers a rather large area of small and large, family owned and corporate franchise business who all cover a variety of categories from your local florist to major hospitals. Once again, the Arcadia Valley region snagged some coveted spots! Businesses in Ironton Fisher Furniture (family owned), Brad Wooten Auto Body, Missouri Farm Bureau Insurance , Adams Heating & Cooling, Punkin’s Twisted B&B and Restaurant and Iron County Medical Center. The soap shop took First Place as best boutique shop in Arcadia Valley for the 6th year in a row.
Shanda and I would like to thank everyone that voted for us and for your continued support of handmade and small business. Even though this sounds like a commercial, I do realize you have plenty of options and places to shop, and I greatly appreciate you choosing to shop with us.
As the winter holiday season begins to sneak up on us, it’s time for the over-the-top and garish holiday sweater tradition! I have had plenty throughout the years and I must admit, I didn’t think the ones I had were that bad until my little sister rolled her eyes one too many times.
So in honor of this festive time of year, we are kicking off the start of our official holiday decorating and over all shop craziness with our UGLY SWEATER event. Starting November 3rd until November 6th, you are encouraged to don your finest of tacky holiday sweaters/jumpers and flaunt them in our shop for 10% off your purchase (excluding tax of course). Shanda and I will be sporting some of the finest in acrylic fashion plus a few wool wonders from the 1960’s to 1980’s just to torment the rest of Main Street. For our online shoppers, we will trust you will be shopping in your finest so let us know by using the coupon code UGLY SWEATER for 10% off your product purchase. Again this offer is only good from November 3rd to the 6th at midnight.
Also that week we will be introducing one of our Christmas scents called….Ugly Sweater. You could see where this is going I am guessing. It’s a blend of sugar and spice with winter fruits that some of you might remember we previously called Sugar Plum Fairy. I never was happy with the Nutcracker soap so Shanda suggested we rename it and make new labels. As usual, it was a great idea and now, we have a special for it and something fun to launch the winter holidays with. I have to say I received my first Christmas sweater on Thanksgiving so it’s was a perfect way to bring in the holidays.
You’ll find Ugly Sweater listed under our Christmas Holiday Collection on line at ArcadiaValleySoap.com With it’s crazy looking shea butter soap along with bath bombs, hand pour wax melts, fragrance spray and shea butter lotion, it’s a great fragrance to make your merry and bright. We will have gift sets available too for the first time online but more on that later with our upcoming Gift Guide.
Shanda said she was willing to work more hours so tada! We are now going to be open on Wednesdays. This will really help us better at being caught up on orders and restocking.
10:00 am – 6:00 pm
10:00 am – 6:00 pm
10:00 am – 6:00 pm
9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Some things to keep in mind if you are venturing out to come see us at the soap shop…..
The Shepherd Mountain Bike Trail is opening April 3rd and then on May 2nd is the Big Mountain Enduro kick off with their first race being held in our little town of Ironton. Needless to say, there will be more people then usual for the next 2 months. If you are avoiding crowds, we suggest stopping in on Wednesdays or Thursdays. While our area has been blessed with very low COVID-19 numbers, with the influx of people arriving, some of our customers may want to avoid people coming in from all over the country during the heavy traffic weekends.
We are still offering $7 flat rate shipping for those of you that like to order online. The delays with the postal service are not as frequent now. We are trying to ship more by UPS though many of our customers have PO Box addresses and we must ship via USPS.
