Just wanted to let you know that I have decided at least for the time being to stop selling my soaps online. Unfortunately I just don't have the time to run Desmond's Barrow properly as a viable business. Soapmaking was always a passion and a hobby and I eventually decided to sell it in a more organized way because of the requests I was receiving for it.

But it's become evident that until I'm able to dedicate more time and resources to develop the product line and grow the business, it's best that I return to soapmaking as a hobby. I would certainly be pleased to continue to sell the soap on a casual basis when available.

Thanks to everyone who was so supportive and a very special thanks to Phil in particular for allowing me to have a nook in the Nook!

Peter

Peter, your soap is among the best I've ever used. Hopefully, at some point in the not too distant future, it will be the right time to resume business operations. Best wishes to you Shy

All the best to you Peter and a special thanks for letting me acquire that last puck of Joie de Vetiver awhile back. It's my absolute favorite Vetiver scent and also one of my very favorite soaps period!

I went to your site this morning to order a few soaps and couldn't get to the payment now I know why. Your soap is wonderful and I for one will be looking forward to be able to purchase your soaps again. All the best.

I'm sorry to see you close shop Peter.  I placed an order from your first batch and I've really enjoyed your soap.

I was fortuate to get a near the end tin of JdV. It is excellent and a fine part of my vetiver rotation.

Thanks, Peter. Fortunately, I have a couple of tubs of your wonderful soaps. Between work and hobby, I choose hobby.
