Close Buy Catalog

I got a great amount of order from Close Buy Catalog, the local school fundraising catalog that featured 30+ local vendor selling over 100 products.  I was so happy to be part of their pilot year!  They did very well and all the money made and exchanging hands came from the community and went back into the community. What a fantastic concept!

Here are some pictures while I put together the order:

Assembling the 4 packs of soap.  These 4 packs included Sea Shore Scrub, Mermaids Garden, Kitchen Scrub and Walk In The Woods soaps all nestled neatly in a square box with a clear lid.  Tied off with a brown sheer organza ribbon adorned with polka dots and a little Casco Bay Soap Co. tag, they couldn't be cuter!

Okay, maybe they could get is a 2 pack under construction.  Same idea, just 2 soaps.  This pack included Maine Pine and Mermaids Garden.

And my biggest surprise was the amount of Laundry Detergent that was ordered....

I'm soo pleased that folks are willing to try something new.  My detergent is all natural and good for both top and front loading machines.  Low sudsing and available in both Unscented and Lavender, these 2 pound bags of soap come in a resealable bag and a wooden scoop tied onto the polka dot sheer organza ribbon.

I do sincerely hope to be part of Close Buy Catalog again.  It is wonderful to help support the school children and to be included with such a great group of respectable craft people was such an honor.

The Close Buy Catalog sounds like a great idea. Good for you for going for it and participating! The polka dot brown sheer organza ribbon is such a perfect finishing touch on these soaps! Polka dots automatically make everything adorable! :)
