Local Local Local

Local Local Local

Increasing product awareness in my home town of Terre Haute, IN is one of my goals this year, and this summer I am doing that in two ways. The first is by participating in my local farmers market, and the second is by expanding my presence in local stores.

Saturdays from 8-12, local vendors can be found in the Clabber Girl parking lot selling fresh baked goods, produce, cheese, eggs, soap, and more. Growing weekly, the market is a great place to support local businesses, and get great fresh items for your home! If I am not away at a festival, you will find me there. The market runs through October, so stop by weekly, selections change as the season does!

If getting out of bed early on a Saturday does not sound like fun, stop by Modern Charm in Downtown Terre Haute! A fun shop full of handmade wares, unique gift items, and true to its name charming finds, I am proud to be offering a selection of soap, scrubs, bath bombs and lip balms there. Next to the Crossroad Café, at 683 Wabash Avenue, Suite 208, check the website for hours.

Festival Schedule for July

This July, I will be vending at two great festivals! The first is CarmelFest in Carmel, IN. Held in Civic Square, this show is full of quality artisans all helping celebrate the town of Carmel celebrate the 4th of July. Held both the 4th and the 5th, there will be a parade, fireworks, and many events to fill the day. For more information visit for upcoming details.

July 17th, I am excited to return for my second visit to the city of Brownsburg for the Festival of the Arts in Arbuckle Park. This festival is growing yearly and is the perfect location to start stocking up on holiday gifts. Packed fill of handmade wares, this is a unique festival focusing on shopping! A children’s area and music will make the day a pleasant experience for all. Check out for upcoming details.

Mystery Boxes

As a child I loved the grab bags at stores. The brown paper sacks sold at a discount, content hidden from my eyes held so many possibilities. When my mom would say yes, I would tear into the bag, looking over each item, full of excitement.

Today, I offer the same experience to my customers. KBShimmer Mystery boxes are your chance to try our products at a great discount. I fill them with soaps that are great, but might be a discontinued scent, the wrong color, or dented. Bath bombs that may have cracked or faded, lip balms with labels that are not on straight, or other items that are great for use, but not perfect will find their way into mystery boxes.

Get one while you can. I don’t always have items to fill them, so quantity is limited!

In The Pot Swirling - Video!

I though that I would practice a bit for my upcoming swirling demos. You will notice I like to talk.
