Buff City Soap – Lane Parke – Mountain Brook

I’m the girl who goes to a Farmer’s Market and walks away with anything but fruits and veggies. I get caught up in homemade products like bread, jewelry, and my very favorite, soap. I will actually wait to buy soap from a Farmer’s Market so I tend to stock up when I go. Well now, right here in Lane Parke, is an entire store dedicated to handmade soap! It’s a thrill for me just walking through the door, seeing all my choices, each one with a pleasing aroma, but not too much, not overpowering … It’s scent heaven. The staff are super helpful answering all my curiosities about each product and the way it’s made. The days of needing a storage unit for soap are over :/ and now I’m on to another new obsession as well, their laundry detergent. Stop in and see for yourself, and read more about simple pleasures in my book, Soul Speak. Get yours on the Shop Page. #CleanSmellsDelightful 🙂
