Remember the first time you used a bar of handmade soap? The difference in the texture of the suds, the richness of the lather, the lack of dryness after using it? I still do, and it’s been 34+ years now. That is the magic of a well made bar. It’s an affordable luxury that no one should be without. Come peruse these and our other fine bath and body products.[...]
It’s very nice to see Gastown slowly coming alive once more. However, there is already changes happening in the landscape that surrounds Gastown Soapworks. Some shops have already closed and will be sadly missed, but most of the family-run shops have re-opened. People are respecting Social Distancing and we love to assist everyone to stay healthy with their favorite bath and body products. We would be proud if everyone would consider us as being THEIR soap shop! Stay healthy! ~Louise[...]
What a week!
It seems like every day brings new joys and challenges. It was great to get back in the shop and make some soap! It has been absolutely gorgeous and warm and we really miss seeing the groups of tourists hover around the Steam Clock just to take photos. I never got tired of it! This week we saw quite a few photographers taking pre-nuptial shots of brides and grooms. That was very lovely.
Once again I must say thank you to our wonderful customers who keep choosing us to be YOUR soap store. We have been licensed to make and sell sanitizer by Health Canada so am pleased to say this is now available in limited quantities. You can purchase some by clicking here.
Take care and stay safe! ~Louise[...]
