Inside the Food & Fiber Pavillion

2013 October 5

#gotexan  #SFOT

We sell some our products at the Texas State Fair through the Go Texan program which has a store located in the Food & Fiber Pavilion.  If you haven’t ever visited this building during the Texas State Fair I thought you might be interested in what you can find there.  It is a busy place with lots of entertainment, shopping and sampling opportunities.  To list just a few of the activities available: you can visit Elsie, get a free ice cream cone, see the live bees, sit in a stone garden and shop for a wide variety of products all created in Texas.

I hope you enjoy the photo montage below of some of the people, products and entertainment that come together at the Food & Fiber Pavilion.

What’s New With Susan’s Soaps?

2013 September 24


We have new products here and more coming soon.  Our all natural liquid shampoo has been getting great feedback.  We are getting wonderful comments from customers on how much volume it is giving their hair.  In addition it is very conditioning for your hair and scalp.  I am not using a conditioner at all anymore.


The Texas State Fair opens this Friday, Sept. 27th and Susan’s Soaps will be there.  Some of our products will be available for sale in the Go Texan store at discounted prices.  In addition, I will be demonstrating our scrubs Tues. – Sat. (except TX-OU weekend when I will be there on Sun. instead) from 10 – 12 and 2 – 4.  I am going to be posting pictures and tidbits from the fair as we go through it so check in frequently.


Due to the rigorous time demands of the State Fair we will only be shipping orders out on Mondays while it is going on. That means we only be shipping orders out on 9/30, 10/07, and 10/14 before returning to our regular shipping schedule on 10/21.  I hope that doesn’t inconvenience anyone too much but there are only so many hours in the day.

Coupon code active for Small Biz Sat. Sale thru Cyber Monday

Fir & Cedar Soap smells like a Christmas Tree


The coupon code is now live on our website.  I apologize for any confusion I caused by putting the wrong dates down in my post.  Tomorrow, Sat. is the 24th, not the 21st and Monday is the 26th, not the 23rd.  Unfortunately, I just realized my mistake as I sat down to set up the coupon code for tomorrow.  Again, I apologize for any confusion, but hopefully the rest of my discussion about Small Biz Sat. and Cyber Monday helped to clarify my meaning.

Anyways, I did just test the coupon code and it IS working.  Just enter your order and enter NOV2012 into the field labeled Promotion Code  when checking out.  This field is located under the box where you indicate any Special Instructions.  The coupon is limited to one per person.  If you have any questions or problems feel free to email me.

I headed my post with a picture of our Fir & Cedar Soap because that is the new Soap scent that is on special on our website.  It is a wonderful holiday scent as it smells like a Christmas Tree.

Speaking of holidays – I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving yesterday and that the rest of your holiday season continues well!

Sale on Small Biz Saturday and Cyber Monday

2012 November 21

Our Christmas Soaps make excellent stocking stuffers.

Black Friday is the time to hit the malls and big stores.  Saturday is the time to shop the small businesses.  And Cyber Monday is internet mania.  Susan’s Soaps & More fits in the last two categories and we are offering 20% off everything in our store beginning on Saturday, Nov. 21 and running through Monday, Nov. 23.   Simply enter Nov2012 into the coupon area when checking out and you should see your discount reflected. Don’t forget that we are also participating in the American Express Small Business Saturday program which is a GREAT way to maximize your dollar.  If you registered your American Express cards back on  Nov. 18th then if you use one for a $25 purchase or more with us on Saturday, Nov. 24, you should see a $25 credit on your American Express Bill.  Remember these three things must apply:

  1. You must use an American Express card that you preregistered with the Shop Small website.
  2. You must make your purchase with a qualifying small business, which Susan’s Soaps is, on Saturday, Nov. 24
  3. The final bill must total $25 or more.

Note: The $25 statement credit is between you and American Express.  If for some reason it does not reflect on your statement you need to contact American Express.  It is NOT the responsibility of Susan’s Soaps & More to credit this to you.  For more information on the American Express Shop Small promotion you may visit their website.  You can even look up a specific business there and make they are part of the program.
