    What a great idea! At least the Moms/Dads would like it! Who needs more candy?! Not me.

    :rolling:Well if that was the only thing they could find that would qualify me as a weirdo, I think I’m okay with it.

    My oldest daughter wants Bacon Soap (Bacon Fat is next to the Duck Fat). I’m going to get some this weekend to have it ready for Christmas.

    When someone comes to visit and my 5 year old starts digging out my scale, my soap equipment and slivers of soaps stored away like it's show and tell.

    You grocery shop for your soap instead of your husband.

    I actually did give out soaps at Halloween! Had made a load of calendula pumpkins, charcoal bats and cats, pure (white) skulls, burdock leaf (green) toads etc etc to sell from my barrow but my peddler's licence still hasn't come through (UK - have been waiting six weeks) so I put them out for trick or treaters. I listened at the window a little while to see how they went down and they loved them. Realised later it's not a bad marketing idea and may do so purposefully next year.

    I've noticed that too... I have a 15-year-old grandson who asked for more soap the last time he was here... a week ago. Interesting.

    That's great! Usually 15 year-old boys smell like dirty socks, at least their rooms do.

    A couple of years ago, before I started CP soap, i put together a few packages for my kids' school's silent auction. I had a big basket of various serums and oils and butters and lip balms and such (which I "priced" at $80), a smaller basket of same ($40), a package of 5 lip balms ($15) and some Star Wars M&P soaps ($12). At the end of the day, the big basket went for $40, the small basket for $20, the lip balms for $12, and two Grade 6 boys got into a bidding war over the Star Wars soaps which drove the price up to $29!! Who knew my market was Grade 6 boys???

    Lesson learned: Make more M&P bars next school auction.

    I had a similar experience the one time I made M&P bars for my 3 grand-nephews in the Seattle area. Featured a red lobster in a somewhat "fragrant" kelp background. They raved over them... of course, they're bigger now and still play with the Santa's Belly Jelly Soap from the year before.
