More Soft Wax for the New Year

Katherine has just finished making another big batch of soft wax, and it’s available in her etsy store.

If you haven’t been keeping up with the Soft Wax Saga this fall and winter, she’s made some changes to her production and bottling process – upgrading the packaging and refining the recipe. Details are here.

Counting all the jars she’s sold at our storefront (and to me), Katherine has made and sold more than 1,000 jars since she started mixing the stuff in the basement in April 2016. When we began making the stuff, I helped her bottle every batch. Now she takes care of everything herself, except ordering some supplies where she needs a credit card.

So thanks to everyone who has supported her these last three years and your patience when things occasionally went wrong. Katherine’s learned a lot about dealing with adults because of this business and, of course, I’m happy to see her get a taste of financial independence.

    I’m sorry she has had to learn about dealing with adults. My condolences.

    Generally easier to deal with children, I think…

    But it’s great that she’s been so busy with making soft wax! Hopefully she’s been able to put her profits to good use! I think Finley got a taste of art and capitalism with his osage orange art project we did two falls ago. He ended up selling all 20 prints we’d prepared. He made more than I ever did selling peacock feathers and Indian corn… (er… whatever they call it these days…) to local nurseries and florists.
