Produce Bags!

I don't know about you but when I go to the farmer's market, one thing that tends to bother me is that when I pick up produce, it is dumped into a bag mixed with all my other produce.  I would rather keep things kind of separate and be able to just put it away when I get home.  Well, we are going to offer a solution to that problem!!  Reusable (and completely washable!) produce bags!  These are completely hand made!

Made of 100% cotton muslin, double-stitched seams (to prevent fraying and prolong use!) with a draw string, these bags come in various sizes!   Extra small for items such as cherry tomatoes, cherries, etc.  The long (small) bag is great for carrots, celery and anything that is extra long.  The small bag  works great for regular sized tomatoes, onions, and more.  The medium bag is wonderful for small bags of potatoes, kale, lettuce, and more.  And the large bag is big enough to hold lots of great things such as broccoli, cauliflower, and lots more!  Prices are from $1 to $5 each or get a full set of all five for $12 (save $3).  Toss these in your market bags and when you shop, no need to worry about what to carry your produce in!  When you get home, you can store then in the bags in the fridge or remove the items and then wash them for future use!  Just don't forget to put them back in your market bags!  These will currently only be available at markets but depending on demand and emails, we may put them on the web-site.  So, come see us at the markets and get your bags today!

Registered with FDA!

I have officially registered with the FDA under the 'Voluntary Cosmetic Registration Program' to ensure my body care products meet the stringent standards of products!  I'm awaiting 'approval' that they meet the proper standards and my labeling may be 'adjusted' to ensure they do, but I want to ensure all my customers that we are compliant with all labeling and manufacturing practices!!

This is through the FDA's Office of Cosmetics & Colors.  I will be submitting each and every formulation to them over the coming weeks!  It is a VOLUNTARY process that manufacturers go through.  Not all businesses do this at all.  Be sure the company you are buying from is following good manufacturing practices!!  A Form FDA 2512 has been filed for 2 formula's already.  Every item we have will be filed with them!  I will keep you all posted as we proceed through this process!!

Happy 4th of July!!

Just wanted to take a moment to say Happy 4th of July!!  Despite the turmoils of our country we still live in the best country in the world!  We still are able to choose careers, do things we like, go where we like, and have more freedoms than any other place in the world!  Yes, these are very difficult times for us all but lets celebrate what we are thankful for!

Friday night we will be announcing what market we will be going to on Saturday.  Due to some difficulties, we as a company have decided to try other avenues for Saturday's.  So, stay tuned!  Where will we go?  It will be a blast wherever that may be!  We will have some great new items as well!  New soap, new bug repellent spray, new items!! See you soon and be safe this holiday (if you're in the USA that is!).  Have a great day everyone else!!
