meet nicolette finch creator of bird bath body treats. here are some words from her:

Birdbath is a handcrafted small-batch luxury skincare line from Trabuco Canyon, California. Our products feature high-performance ingredients of the highest quality to nourish and treat your skin well. Every Birdbath product is paraben and phthalate-free, and most are vegan with the exception of our balms, as they contain premium white beeswax. We do not test our products on animals, all birdbath products are cruelty-free and our ingredients are sourced from vendors who are committed to providing cruelty-free products.Each Birdbath product is comprised of key skin loving ingredients designed to work in harmony to maximize their skin benefits. We use many different exotic butters, oils, extracts, clays, and powders without adding anything that does not benefit your skin. We want every product we craft to feel like you are treating your skin to the good stuff!

Believe it or not, Birdbath started in our kitchen. About six years ago, I found myself struggling to afford Christmas presents for our family, friends, and my sons teacher and aides. I had always made my own basic skincare products because my skin is crazy sensitive and would freak out over most store bought brands. I decided to gift everyone handmade sugar scrubs and bath bombs since I had been making those for years. I packaged them in pretty blue glass, carefully chose healthy ingredients, and come holiday time I had a slew of handmade gifts ready to send off. I had no idea how much I would love creating things for other people and something in me wanted to create more. I started playing around with different ingredients, started making lotions and masks, and unknowingly gave birth to Birdbath. With the support of my hubby and kiddos, I grew my recipes, sourced a little packaging, and did my very first farmers market in June of 2017. I haven’t looked back since! Birdbath has grown in ways I never imagined and I can’t believe I get to make awesome things for a living now! Thank you for supporting this small little business of ours, it means the world to us.

Xoxo, The Finch Family

MEET SHEILA PAYNE, CREATOR OF HUMBLE GOODS. HERE ARE A FEW WORDS FROM HER:

Humble Goods was established in 2009 with a strong desire to make a product that was not only useful and simplistic, but also beautiful and usable. We started selling our handmade lines at local shows and we were quickly sought after by shoppe owners shopping at the local markets I was selling at  to offer them at wholesale pricing. ALL of our products are machine washable, and made to last, we offer hundreds of designs form sassy to inspirational as well as customizing too. Humble Goods is a Cottage Industry based business and all items are done in house from sewing and printing to shipping by myself and our sew team (aka) my Mama.

MEET AMANDA MOORE MAKER OF THIRD MOON BAKERY. HERE ARE SOME WORDS FROM HER:

My name is Amanda Bonzagni, and I am the owner of Third Moon Bakery!  This company is my forever daydream turned into real life. I create all of my hand-crafted sugar cookies from scratch, and with so much love. For many years, I have worked in the restaurant industry, both in front of the house positions, and as a pastry cook for a Five Star kitchen. 

I have perfected my sugar cookie recipe to have a soft bite, but not too crumbly. Not only will these cookies bring the perfect finishing touch to any event, they also go great with a cup of coffee, and they travel well to take along on adventures!

I am so thankful for each and everyone of my clients who help my dream come true each day. I can't wait to create something special for you! The possibilities are endless!

Cheers to pretty, delicious cookies!!
Amanda

MEET diana lauzon, creator of farm stand apothecary. HERE ARE SOME WORDS about her:

Farm Stand Apothecary was created with the idea of bringing an extra element of FUN to self-care.  We pride ourselves on sourcing the highest quality ingredients and then adding a little something extra.  Whether it is the surprise inside our bath bombs or our beyond cute packaging, our aim is to provide you with Good Clean Fun.

All our products are lovingly made in small batches and by hand. We use the best essential oils, BOTANICALs, and fragrances to ensure the highest quality in everything we make. At the core of Farm Stand Apothecary is a nod to life simplified, with pure ingredients transformed by hand into something unique, purposeful, and exuding joy.  

Of course, it is a family affair, with my three kids and my husband being roped into, and tapped, for their RESPECTIVE TALENTS.  Lastly, our dog Molly, a rescued Yorkie-Poo whose intoxicating cuteness is equally offset by her hot-messpersonality, is a lesson each day in patience and awe that keeps me going.

MEET MONICA LEON, creator of TINY HEIR MOCCS. HERE ARE SOME WORDS about her:

My name is Monica and I'm behind Tiny Heir Moccs. I would like to tell you a little bit about me. I'm a single mom of 3 amazing children that have inspired me to open up my own little business in hopes of preparing them a better future. I come from a long line of a very crafty family and was introduced to all sorts of crafts at a very young age. One of my favorite smells in my fathers workshop was the smell of leather, so naturally I wanted to learn how to work with it. My father has thought me all I know and is still teaching me as time passed. I love making your Tiny Heir's moccasins and accessories, I take pride in what I make and hope you enjoy my craft. I also have a full time job as a waitress and sometimes I may get behind, but I'm very fortunate to have my father around, who will help me catch up on my orders. Thank you for stopping by and reading my little story and for your support as it is a great financial help to my whole family.
