They really are wonderful, hope you wrap them to show off the swirls to best advantage!!! 8)

Now, for the lamest question so far................I know, I know, there is no such thing as a stupid question, but I think this one at least comes close................

Insurance???? I had NO idea I needed insurance to sell soap! :shock: Where would one aquire said insurance, and here's the clincher...how much dough-ski can one expect to shell out on this insurance??????????

expectantly,

Della :?

Having liablility insurance is always a good thing to have to protect your business. Since I also sell skin care I wanted to protect myself in the rare case something happens.

I went through the Handcrafted Soap Makers Guild to get mine. Once you become a Soapmaker Member you are covered...It was $480 for the year.

MUCH better! The charcoal doesn't "bleed" from wet soaps like other colorants do.
