Newsletter- The End is Near- for Summer Soaps

Did you survive the record heatwave much of the country suffered earlier this month? On the hottest day of that streak, I was outside, shlepping soaps at The City Flea. At one point I thought I was going to pass out, but thanks to frozen lemonades from Coffee Emporium, I stayed upright. Many, many, many thanks to my friend Mandy who was also out melting with me on that awful day. I would have been in big trouble without her help. And thanks to those of you who actually braved the heat! It was surprisingly busy. Cincinnati folks rock at supporting local makers. 

The "too long, didn't read" version of the newsletter is as follows.
  • Last chance for many products. 
  • Profile in Awesomeness: Jarrad Holbrook
  • Where you can find me in August
  • Born this Way donation changes August 1 
Happy Bathing!

Last Chance! 

In the words of legendary (and fictional) Anchorman Ron Burgundy, "It's so damn hot, milk was a bad choice." But, those warm temperatures won't be around much longer. That means it's time for some changes to The Oakley Soap Co product line! The last batches of Over Kolafied, Lime in De Coconut, Fiona Fervor and The Divider are now available. When they are gone, they are gone until next spring.  Also, going away (for good) is the chai scented sugar scrub. Get 'em while you can!

New falls soaps, and two new sugar scrubs are released on September 1st.  However, newsletter subscribers will get early access to all the new products!  Keep an eye on your email!

Profiles in Awesomeness: Jarrad Holbrook

Our July Profile in Awesomeness was posted a little later than usual because the said profile was off traveling the world and being awesome!  I'm excited for you to meet Jarrad, who, when not saving historic buildings, is off traveling world or acting in local theater productions. Go check out the blog to see why he was worth the wait!

August Show Schedule


I'll be at two markets in August. On the 10th you can find me at the Hamilton Flea from 10-4 in Marcum Park. This is one of my favorite events because you'll find great vendors that you can't find at any other market. Also, in July, they had a Poutine food truck!  I'm praying they will be back in August!

The following day, August 11, I will be at OTR's monthly street festival, Second Sunday on Main from 12-4. SSOM is always a fun event, and I hope to see you there. 

I am looking for an assistant for both August 11 and for the TWO shows I have on September 14th. You'll get free products all your expenses for the day covered. For more information, email me at theoakleysoapco@gmail.com.
