marks the 8th year that Union Street Soapworks has been on the market
scene. And while itís been an amazing run, I feel itís time
for this soldier of cleanliness to retire from the sudsy service.
sorry to say that Union Street Soapworks will be closing its doors
forever this Fall. Production has ceased and every remaining
bar of soap is officially a collectorís item. For the time
being, you can still find your favorite USSW soaps either on the
website or at the DC area farmers markets but supplies are very limited
and Iím recommending that everyone stock up while they can.
I depart the DC market scene, Iím actively looking to train a
hard-working person (or people!) from the local area who would like to
take my place at the markets or inspire a new soapmaker in a faraway
place. Iíll share every *dirty* secret---the vaunted USSW
process and recipes, hardware, materials, unlimited technical help, and
placement at local farmers markets. The only thing that is
not available is the USSW name, which Iíve decided to retire.
if youíd enjoy the relaxed lifestyle of farmers markets, working with
your hands, and making lots of new friends---for a modest investment
this is for you! Interested parties please e-mail me direct
the bottom of my heart---thanks for giving me eight awesome years as
your soap guy!
