MAY THE VACCINATION PROGRAMME BRING HAPPINESS AND A RETURN OF CONVIVIALITY
APRIL/MAY 2021 UPDATE
We don’t have any markets booked for 2021, however you can order from us direct, see our Contact page for email address and message form. Stocks are rather limited at the moment so please let Susan know what you would like and she will do her best to accommodate you. She will be making soap and more of her various face and body creams soon, we will update the website when she has done this.
Our best deal at present is four wrapped soaps for £16.50 plus £3 2nd class post and packing. Double the order and p&p is free!
The early part of the year is always a quiet time for soap sales so Susan has been busy creating new artworks in pastels. We’ve put some of her images up on this site. She’s also been teaching art via Zoom using a super bendy iPhone holder to hold her phone which is doing a great job as a second camera for her online classes.
We’ve been busy producing a book about the history of the Old Convent where Susan makes the soap and teaches art. You can read all about it here
ABOUT VICTORY SOAPS
Susan started making Olive Oil soap more than 20 years ago. Family and Friends asked her to sell it to them so in 2011 she started selling it at Craft Markets and Christmas Markets in Sussex and Kent. There weren’t any of these in 2020 of course however we did enjoy exhibiting at the Hastings Arts Forum Christmas Fair.
Susan is a trained artist so she decided to create original art for her soap wrappers and gift box labels. Her customers liked the art so much that they kept the wrappers and gift boxes after they’d used the soap. The labels make great scented book marks!
Susan’s original drawings and paintings are available as Christmas and Greeting cards, printed in small quantities on 300 gsm Fabriano watercolour paper. The wrappers and labels and cards are all printed on recycled paper using environmentally friendly solid wax ink sticks on our Xerox wax printer.
Our hand made creams are made with the finest natural ingredients with a base of finest quality Cretan Olive Oil.
