A real goat farm south of Houston? I thought south of Houston was mostly suburbs and petroleum plants, swamps and alligators, until you get to Galveston and the Gulf… ha ha… ! well I’ll have to try to locate some of this stuff. (But I seriously doubt it will be superior to the marvellous soap slab from Aesop!)
Ah, I will have to go look at the Aesop soap then!
I was given a small sample soap when I was in their shop in Adelaide, AU, and it is so wonderful that I went to buy it at their boutique here in Houston. It is enormous! When they say “slab,” they mean SLAB! It is $25. It is 3 by 6 inches, and I will probably cut it into 3 pieces in order to use it. Fragrance listed on the box as including bergamot rind, ylang yang, and tahitian lime–it’s nice, not too overwhelming.
I thought I was a gonner with the description but thank goodness Calypso commented about the hoat situation south of Houston.
LOL! S’ok, did not expect it to be that easy. Still:
Naughty Robin. Still no, specially since the goats have names. (I know no goats were harmed in by he making of the soaps.)
No worries. I will find you irresistible goat soap from nameless (but happy!) goats, some day. It is good to have goals
Manready Mercantile is a treasure-trove of fun stuff! I used to get my Shinola notebooks from them. Gonna have to check out these soaps. It’s true there isn’t much south of Houston but I worked with a local goat farm that was super duper sweet. Wonder if it’s them!
