River Bar Soaps

River Bar Travelers

20131004_183703We started making these smaller soaps for a couple of vacation rentals we’re working with and for wedding favors, and this year I decided to take them to the Downtown Crescent City Farmers and Artisans Market where I hang out on Wednesdays.  They’ve been a hit with travelers on distant journeys, with those who want to take a little gift from the Redwood Coast back home to the neighbor who watered their plants, and with those who just want to try a new fragrance without purchasing a full size bar.

I have had people ask about the wrapping: “How do you get all those little accordion edges to fold in like that?”  “Aha, my little secret,” I say.  No, really, I’m eager to divulge.  They are cupcake liners, and by a happy accident, the diameter of our soap mold is the same as that of a standard cupcake liner.  This is really fun, because there are so many different liners to choose from these days!

Our grandson Ezra calls these Ezzie-size soaps because they fit just right in his hand. I think he likes the Licorice best . . . or is that his mom?
