Staying Local in Coeur d'Alene - Shipping Around the United States
Our home is in Coeur d'Alene which is where we've located our flagship store. We moved from a smaller space on South 4th Street to our own building directly on Sherman Avenue (the former Everson Jewelry space) in October of 2016. This has allowed us to have a 1000 square foot retail store and internet and wholesale fulfillment on the main floor, 2000 square feet of production space in the basement and office space in the loft. We extensively remodeled the retail area including removing the 1970's popcorn ceilings, ripping out the sheet-rock wall to expose the buildings original 1920's era brick and, of course, adding our Mountain Madness style to it.
Located directly on the shore of lake Coeur d'Alene, downtown and Sherman Avenue is always a hotbed of activity. A major tourist destination at all times of the year, there are many local shops and restaurants to choose from. With a plethora of outdoor activities to do all no further than 15 minutes from town, Coeur d'Alene really is a great place to live or visit.
Our Basement is Our Workshop
With the move to our new building, we have been able to consolidate all of our production into one collaborative area with enough room to comfortably grow into the near future. This is where we continue to hand-make all of our products.
We make all of our soap using the cold process (CP) method which utilizes lye to convert vegetable fats into soap and glycerin. This is the old fashioned method of making soap from "scratch" and you will not find any melt and pour bases in our soap bars. We continue to make our soap in small batches which gives us the ability to add our artistry to each bar and to stay true to what makes our soap unique.
