Welcome to The Stuff I Love About us Page.
Soap and So.
Hi I am so pleased you found us! I am Donna and I started making soap in 2015 as a hobby and also for our home! They are gentler and less irritating than commercial brands and as I suffer from eczema I had to find an alternative that was luxurious without stripping my skin. I made many for Christmas presents and the family loved them however after accumulating a a lot of soap I decided to start selling at local craft fairs. These provided an opportunity to get feedback and help support further product development. Since then I have added some different items to my range including bath bombs, bubble baths, and eventually candles and wax melts which I sell under the brand name Soap and So.
Since then the business has grown to the extent that my products are only available online with thestuffilove.com being the main online outlet and the occasional craft fair at Christmas. I work from my soap kitchen at home in the Lincolnshire Wolds and always habeen several greyhounds close by. Both of my passions in one place, greyhound rescue and soap making.
We are members of the The Guild of Craft Soap and Toiletry Makers
Our recipes are safety assessed by a U.K. chemist as required by EU legislation and all candles and melts are CLP compliant.
The Little Woodwork Shop.
Glynn Wright had started out as a maintenance man and found himself often being asked if he could design and make various pieces and items from wood. One of the very first projects was a cabinet with shelves that slid forward for heavy metal case file holders to sit on and in for an elderly lady. This project was duly completed in a 6 x 10 ft garden shed and the kitchen floor.
Since then the shed has grown along with the tools and the knowledge to use them.
Necessity is the mother of invention
The display stands have developed from a single stand (that didn't collapse down) that was made for Donna to take to her craft fairs and sell her soap and bath products on.
That first stand rattled around the back of her van for days on end when it wasn't needed and it didn't take long for the necessity of a collapsible stand to become clear. After Glynn designed the first Collapsible Stand it was soon taken to a craft fair where the interest from other stall holders was instant.
Since then Glynn has allowed himself to be guided by customer requirements and with a few revisions in the design has and continues to develop a range of quality stands.
All the stands Glynn makes are made by hand with no laser guided computer controlled widget makers in site.
All the cuts are set up using tapes and rules and template the stands are all sanded and the edges are rounded over and every stand goes through a pre-fit and build before leaving the workshop for country's all over the world.
Some of the country's Glynn has sent stands to are
America including Alaska and Maui
