We Are Most Thankful

Thanksgiving at Island Thyme Soap Company

Tomorrow is Thanksgivng

We will gather together with friends and family to celebrate our blessings while we share a traditional dinner of turkey and cranberries and all the trimmings. Tomorrow is for family. Today we thought we'd celebrate what we're grateful for as a small business.  We are thankful for our loyal customers. 

Although we include a handwritten personalized thank-you note with all orders, that small gesture can't really express just how much allowing us the opportunity to serve them again means. We couldn't continue grow without them. We couldn't keep doing what we love to do, without them.

So to our loyal customers, we are most thankful.

This weekend kicks off the holiday shopping season.  We have three days for getting deals – Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday. On #GivingTuesday, we have a day for giving back. It's a celebration of America’s greatest traditions: generosity, entrepreneurialism and community. As in years past, there will be site-wide deals to be had all weekend for our shoppers and on Tuesday we will again donate a portion of proceeds from the weekend to those charities that are close to our hearts; The Fisher House, the SPCA Tampa Bay, Big Cat Rescue and Metropolitian Ministries. 

But we wanted to do something a little different this year.  We also want to donate to the favorate causes of some of our most loyal customers.

Be sure to check back Tuesday to read about some of our customer heroes and sheroes, and the causes close to their hearts!
