Come along with me to *The Bathing Boutique*

...a little slice of heaven inside Flint Farmers Market.

When we were visiting our daughter last weekend we went
to the Farmers Market again and I fell in love with this
amazing *bathing boutique*. I sure wish this was
closer to where I live because I would be a regular
customer!

I absolutely love this idea for display.
Old sewing machine drawers with a large drawer on top
and can you say white?? :)

I think these are just gorgeous! Wouldn't you love to
take a bath with one of these cupcake soaps?

Loving the tray they are setting on as well!

I thought her whole booth was done just perfect and oh so pretty! Makes me want to to take a bath right now!

I purchased a couple of these gorgeous lavender
sachets. I would have spent more, but we had
just come from Peacock Park where I had spent
my wad for the day! lol.

They are sooooo pretty. I would like to make
something similar, but first I have to drag out
the sewing machine.

{I will show them better in another post}

Lovely rose sachets

sachets in all shapes and sizes

I thought her vintage suitcase display was a great idea.

Angel face soap

After my first time around I came back for a second
look and talked to the owner more. I feel so bad that
I don't remember her name, but it kinda rhymed with
Sandi...Cindy? Mindy? Oh dear. I really enjoyed talking
to her. Definitely a kindred spirit!

Bath salts in beautiful display containers as well.
I just wanted to pull up a chair and sit here all day long!

Can I just say that I love to support people who make
lovely handmade items because I know the work involved
and then you hope that someone will love your things
as much as you do. Well I do love her items and can't
wait to go back!

If the owner is reading this please contact me with your
name...I feel like a dufus that I forgot.
Happy bathing!!!

I love handmade soaps very much, Sandi. These look gorgeous and are displayed beautifully too. There must have been a wonderful smell around this booth.
Have a great weekend :-)!
Hugs to you,

Great post, Sandi. I love your white, but it just doesn't happen for me, perhaps it's our climate. We'll have to settle on being Ebony and Ivory. I have some of those drawers that I use for my fat quarters, they look great, haven't made anything with the quarters yet, but they look good.

Sandi I am heading to the Flint Farmer's Market in a couple of weeks... I hope she has a booth set up that weekend, too. Looks like a great addition to the Market.
