Soap Subscription...better than Cosmo

I've been wanting to do this for years...and finally just got around to it. Have one bar of soap delivered to you (or a very special guest), each and every month with a Sweet Petula Soap Subscription.
3 month subscription $24.00
6 month subscription $48.00
1 year subscription $96.00
Your first bar will be shipped as soon as your order is placed. Each additional bar will be shipped on the 10th of each month and arrived beautifully gift wrapped. This makes a great gift for someone special...or even yourself! Come to our Trunk Show next week and enter to win a 3, 6, or yearly subscription.
Monthly shipping is included in cost of subscription. Please let us know if this is purchased as a gift so that we can include a special message from you.
Can be bought in our on-line Etsy shop, or by calling the retail store at 206.431.9311
The following is a general idea of what will be sent. Of course, if you have a preference, we will send you whatever your heart desires.
January/Sea Spa
February/Sweet P.
March/Fleur de Lis
April/Ruby Grapefruit
May/Ginger Blossom
June/Bay Rum
July/Fresh Lavender
September/Mediterranean Mint
October/Sweet P.
November/Ginger Blossom

Heidi, the designer will be present with TONS of stock. Including lots of great scarves, in colors Sweet Petula doesn't stock, new 100% cashmere eye pillows (how decadant!), & just for showing up, you can enter to win a scarf of your very own!

Black Friday

Yuck. I hate the term, "Black Friday". The name is lame as well as all that it stands for. Normally, I keep my blog pretty happy-go-skippy, but for one moment, I am going to be pretty serious. I'm begging you all.....skip Walmart and stores of the like this year. It has never been more important to let your dollars do the talking. Shop local and put your money back into the Seattle economy. It doesn't have to be Sweet Petula, but please make it count.
And if it is Sweet Petula.......mention this email and I'll give you $10 to spend however you please.
I'm off to spend the Thanksgiving holiday in a little boutique hotel. Thanks to everyone who so graciously invited us to join their festivities. You are all too good to me.

I would really love these seasons plates from baileydoesntbark for Christmas. They are so delicate and modern at the same time.

my b.f. can be reached at Feel free to send hints and or reminders and I'll return the favor.

Can we come to your house for Thanksgiving?

Last night Tom & I were discussing our Thanksgiving plans. Unfortunately, we had to cancel our original plan to go visit my family in Spokane due to some work issues (mine). I was pretty excited to go, as my Mom just bought a brand new house and it is going to be the first Thanksgiving there. Tom was excited to get out of town & Mom was excited because Tom was going to cook. But we had to cancel. And now we have no plans.

As we were discussing what to do, I came up with the idea of spending it with a family of complete strangers. Wouldn't that be interesting? We could take out a personal ad on Craig'sList. How hard could it be to find a nice big family to spend the holiday with? Doesn't that sound like delightful idea?

Just for the record, Tom hates my idea. Obviously he has no sense of adventure. His alternate ideas are to spend the day at home, invite over friends, or volunteer at a homeless shelter. Yawn.

So if I can convince my boyfriend to join me....I'd love to come to your house. Then I can forgo the Craig'sList thing. My preference is a family that serves a traditional Thanksgiving dinner, has at least one Grandparent present, some little kids running around, and a drunk Uncle with grab hands.

I'll bring pie. Or dress like a Pilgrim...the choice is yours.

Soap Seconds Available in our Etsy Shop

Super fantastic deal for those who like super fantastic deals! 3 lbs of bulk soap packaged in a bag. Most of our regular customers know and love these bags of "soap seconds". They are now available in our Etsy Shop.
For those of you unfamiliar...when I make a batch of soap, it is poured into a huge 2x2 foot mold, that is then cut into bricks, then bars. When cutting down, long sheets are "leftover".
I also just listed a bunch of "slightly unsightly" soap bars that are about 80% perfect and come in a bulk wrap (as pictured above).
Go here to buy!

hey baby...what's your sign?

Brand NEW....from David Aubrey. Zodiac necklaces. I love these and think I must absolutely have one for myself. Available in know like Cancer, Taurus and such, and the Chinese goat, and tiger, and RAT...which I am, and quite frankly, this fact does not please me. I'd prefer to be a gazelle or swan or something. Are those an option? These necklaces are a 18kt gold plated pendant and a cluster of semi precious and glass stones with an 18kt gold plated leaf charm. It’s set on a 16 inch 18kt gold plated chain that fastens with a lobster clasp. Each comes with a message card describing the symbol. A fantastic gift! For yourself.

$45.00 each

Samples, Samples, Samples..and more Samples

Okay, so the puppy above has absolutely nothing to do with this post. Except for the fact that I love puppies. And this one is tres smoochable. I wish he were mine. I've already named him, "snickers". But anywho......

One of the great job perks I have (owning a shop), is getting samples. Tons and tons of product samples. Sent to me, handed to me at shows, dropped off by sales reps, etc., etc. It is pretty fun. Like a constant ever changing swag bag. But I'm in the process of cleaning out my office and my little sample shelf runneth over.

There is no possible way for me to try all these goodies so I've decided to give away a big bag to some lucky reader! There is soap and lotion and fingernail polish and perfume and masks, and toners, and simply too much to list. If you want it, simply enter yourself by leaving a comment and I'll pick someone at random on the 15th. Make sure you leave a way for me to contact!
