I haven't posted in a while. We were down in Florida, on the beach with family for the holidays. Driving home, we both realized we were sick. It's one of those long, lingering colds, and thankfully not Covid. I've been drinking astragalus tea for immunity, and watching the snow melt from my window in DC. 

I'm conjuring up the warmth of our trip south. Our brief stop in Okefenokee Swamp, where we saw Sandhill cranes, white egrets, and a stealth-drifting alligator. 🐊 We often stop here when we're passing through the state. We walk the boardwalk over a lush wetland full of bald cypress and giant tupelo trees with drippy Spanish moss, to a high lookout over a swamp, where we listen to the strange crane songs, meditate, and birdwatch.

While everyone else is posting pictures of snow on the ground in DC, I'll be a contrarian. Thinking about that evocative place, I'll raise my mug to health and a happy new year. Staying warm in 2022. ☺️☕️🌞

Just like that — it's my last market of the season. Come find me tonight in the Brookland Art's Walk until 8 PM for Festive Friday!

Artists’ studios are open. I'm popping up in the plaza with painter @rasmekpeace, Pittsburgh jewelry artist @shopcollarbone, and DJ @kryptksounds.

Yes, it's literally your last chance to shop Mayapple Soaps in person. But I've finally posted all the new items to my shop! So if you miss tonight's market, shop online at MayappleSoaps.com.

The Procrastinator's Market is having a pop-up this Thursday 5-8 PM @metrobardc, a new outdoor bar in Northeast near the Rhode Island Ave metro stop, the MBT bike trail, and just blocks from my house! The pop-up features many Ward 5 makers, including your's truly. Shop and drink! What could be finer? 🍻

The Christkindlmarket this past weekend was a hit. There was a delightful frenzy of people in my tent all weekend long. I never got a chance to post to IG until now! Big thank you to @heurichhouse and everyone who came out to support local businesses. 

One thing I absolutely love about working at market is meeting other talented, creative makers. If you #lustlocaldc check them out and follow them: @bicycletrashdc @greathillstudio @voyagerbagworks @gardenandpots @spoilmerottendogbiscuits 

There are two more opportunities to find me this week for your last minute holiday shopping. I'll be at the Procrastinators Pop-up at @metrobardc this Thursday 5-8pm (640 Rhode Island Ave NE). And closing out the season, I'll be in my neighborhood for Festive Friday in the Brookland Arts Walk 4-8pm. I hope to see some of you there!

I'm very excited for the Christkindlmarket this weekend at the @heurichhouse. 

Friday, December 3rd 4-8pm⠀
Saturday, December 4th 12-8pm⠀
Sunday, December 5th 12-6pm⠀

The event has doubled in size from previous years. Shop 35 local artisans, and bring on the holiday cheer with beer, cider, and other bevvies. It's fun for the whole family with games and ornament making for the kiddies, dinner + cookies at the food trucks: @timberpizzaco, @petitafrikdc, and @captaincookiedc.

Tickets are $10 online at https://heurichhouse.org/ckm or $13 at the door. The event is outdoors in the castle garden and on the sidewalk in front. I'll be out front if you're looking for me! The address is 1307 New Hampshire Ave NW, DC.

Historically, the brewmaster's castle was the largest brewery in DC and a household name. They are still serving up delicious brews that you can enjoy while you shop. Just upgrade your ticket to include an alcoholic beverage!

I'm very grateful to everyone who has supported my business, followed me on Instagram, given me feedback, and come out to markets. Mayapple Soaps is going into its fourth year! Homegrown and handmade right here in Washington, DC. 

This weekend, I'll be at Eastern Market with tons of new items, perfect for gift giving: holiday soaps, bath bombs, and limited edition soap dishes made by Local Potter @stehnie. I've been so busy making things to post much online, so you won't find any of these things in my shop online. 

This weekend is the biggest shopping weekend of the year, and Small Business Saturday. If you love your local businesses, show up! We'll be at 7th and C Streets SE in Capitol Hill from 9 am - 4 pm both Saturday and Sunday.
