Black Friday may seem "business-driven", but in fact it was the consumer who created this magically chaotic post-turkey shopping frenzy. It began in the early 60's when shoppers would kick off the holiday buying season on the Friday after Thanksgiving. Did you know that Black Friday shopping is a purely an American craze? So grab your purses all you Patriots and let's dive in to this year's online sale and gift giving guide.
The early bird catches the worm here on the homestead. My regular wake up time is about 4:30 AM everyday. With time allotted for my coffee to kick in we'll open up Early Bird specials at 6:00 AM CST on Friday 11/26/21. The entire shop will be 21% off and each order will receive a free sack of soap "coal". There will also be a couple surprise Door Buster items to stock up on. Early Bird shopping ends at 10:00 AM CST.
From 10am to 8pm we're offering a BYOB - Build Your Own Box sale. Curate a customized holiday gift set from some of our most popular handmade artisan soaps and bath/skincare items. Have them shipped to you or directly to a family or friend...either way all orders over $50 get FREE shipping!!
More of a night owl than an early bird? The late night sale starts at 8pm and ends at Midnight. Buy any 2 regularly priced items and get a third at half price. Watch for surprise "night cap" deals.
Shopping can be stressful so we created a Holiday Gift Giving Guide. Everybody uses soap...or at least we hope they do :) Our handmade artisan soap is something every man, woman, and child can appreciate. We also have some great stocking stuffer items too. Nonetheless, here are some suggestions that might help find the perfect gift for that special someone.
**For Her** - give the gift of self care!! Foaming Bath Milk is a "must-have" bottle of decadence to create a relaxing spa experience at home. Add some Satin Body Butter to seal the deal.
**For Him** - we have several artisan soaps geared specifically to the needs of men. From rugged manly fragrances, designs for dudes, and all natural ingredients...we got you covered. Be good to your beards with Beard Balm & 'Stache Wax or conditioning beard oil.
**For Kids** - the iconic Duckie Soap is a favorite among the littles. Add a sack of soap "coal" and they'll go from naughty to nice real quick.
**For Couples** - create a "His & Hers" gift set.
**For Teens** - a fun and whimsical artisan bar specially for them. Create an entire gift box of items to wow even the toughest of teen tyrants.
**For Anyone** - make it last...give the gift of handmade soap all year long. Purchase a Slices of Soap SoS Subscription so each month they can receive a uniquely curated box delivered right to their doorstep.
