Hands and Soap
Last time I looked for census details, Mendocino county had under 100,000 residents all told. So our farmer's markets are truly local, from a small population base. Right here in town we have a wonderful soapmaker, Dancing Madrone Soap Company, with products sold at many outlets around Willits and beyond. Here at the weekly market, the owner/crafter (and former nurse) sells end-cuttings, close-outs, or vaguely not-perfect pieces to wise consumers. Even as she counts the packets, this guy can't help reaching for yet another bar.
I was honored to learn that my soapmaker already had this blog bookmarked! And hello to her daughter too. Remember everyone, tomorrow is Mother's Day here in the US.
