BullardRandySantaLand Workshop39Side WalkPersonalized Hand Made Christmas Ornaments. PLEASE move us to booth 37 Butch and Lynn Mayes have retired and and have sold their business. We would like to request their booth 37. The sun was shinning directly on our Ornaments which causes the clay to get too hot causing problems in personalizing as the ink gets very tacky and will not dry. Their booth had more tree coverage which will fix this problem.

LehmanDavidEarth Drops102MeadowI would like to take this opportunity to acquaint you with the superb quality all natural handcrafted soaps that my wife and I produce. Our soaps are in no way comparable to the other handcrafted soaps you may have seen or used in the past. Our customers many of whom are connoisseurs of handcrafted soaps say that the soaps we produce are the finest they have ever used. Since 1996 we have made our soaps from scratch using our own private recipes that my wife personally designed. They contain only the finest food grade ingredients found in most gourmet kitchens. We use only pure essential oils for the bouquet of scents and benefits our soaps provide there are no man-made fragrances involved. Our soaps contain absolutely no man-made chemicals colorants additives or preservatives. The two main ingredients that we start each batch of soap with are; olive oil and coconut oil. Then we build on that with other vegetable oils essential oils herbs and other plant produce such as oatmeal and almonds. By utilizing our own time proven recipes the finest ingredients and an established manufacturing process we produce the ultimate bar of soap. We do make twenty varieties for people and five designed specifically for your favorite family pet. My wife also assembles some very beautiful gift sets of various sizes using our soaps as the centerpiece to streamline gift giving by our customers. Most recently Cheryl has been making some wonderful birdhouses out of gourds and bamboo from our property. They are really beautiful built to last and made with the bird’s needs and wants in mind. We also grow luffa sponges that can be used for all kinds of scrubbing needs from your body to vegetables to dishes and even your floors. We at Earth Drops are proud to offer our uniquely exquisite products to everyone. Although our company only consists of my wife and myself we provide many thousands of bars yearly to our valued customers nationwide. It is my pleasure to have had
