I love that gardeners scrub it transports me to summer and sunshine, every time I use it!

I learned about you recently from Wendy the owner of Moop bags through her newsletter. I have a little toddler and have to hand wash constantly. Washing with your soaps is a treat. Congrats on 10 years!

Congratulations to a wonderful, sweet and fun shop. It’s always such a pleasure to stop in and smell the beautiful products the makers are making. I first went in to Handmade, and Winston’s, with my mother in law because of the sweet time and sweet finds she found in store. We can always find something to take home with us or for a friend, from the citrusy scented soaps and lip balms for myself to the funny cards and novelties for a friend, it’s always an enjoyable time. Many thanks for your place in La Connor, your kind staff, and hard work at consistently being a great part of the community.

I first heard of Handmade La Conner from Three Hearts Home in Somerville, NJ. They closed shop maybe five years ago and I needed to buy the best, creamiest, citrus smelling hand lotion that they used to sell. I luckily had taken many pictures of it because of the cute packaging and because I posted it to my social media a lot. Years after they closed, I managed to find this website and order it from here. My other favorite product would be the Neroli + Sea Salt hair texturizing spray. It smells good and with my curly hair, this spray makes it look like I’ve just come out of the ocean. It tightens my girls and gives me the ocean waves in my hair. I’d love for Handmade La Conner to make face mists or body bronzer to make me/my hair have sparkles.

My words of wisdom: keep making high quality products. If money is tight, decrease your product lines but never decrease the quality. I searched for you from pictures I took years ago! This loyalty can only be made due to your high quality products.

I wish you the best in health, love, happiness, creativity, and financial well-being :) I’m glad that you have both an in person and online market.

I first learned of your products in a store in Seattle, Station 7 on Capitol Hill and I fell in love. My favorite product was a hand soap you made for a restaurant down the street from you, Sage and Grapefruit? It was wonderful. I love your laundry soap.
