2017 Safe Soap and Moisturizer Resolution #1

This is a year of big changes for Phoenicia Soap Co. I'm ramping up production and making soap my primary vocation. I have gone from churning out soap in less than 20 square feet (including the top of my dryer) to a roomy 40 square feet of production area. You'll see that I'll have more inventory and new product listings on this site in the coming weeks.

New Year's Ablutions

My friend Jana Martin blurbed Phoenicia Soap's Calendula Spice Shave Soap in this month's Chronogram. It's in their Well Spent section that she dubbed "The Ablution Edition."

Mall of the Dead

Macy's in the Hudson Valley Mall in Kingston, NY is one hundreds of stores closing in the next few months. This follows the closing of JC Penny's, leaving 2 of 4 anchor stores in our Mall. I'm sad for the workers who will be displaced by this closing. Kingston shoppers just aren't supporting big box and chain stores as they once were. Hudson Valley Mall has been off and on the Dead Malls list for years.  This change is consistent with my own shopping behavior. When I first moved here in 2006 I shopped (food, clothing, what-not) in Kingston at least...
