Soap Shop closed on Friday 24 November
Fri 24 Nov 2023

We are very sorry, but the Soap Shop will be closed on Friday 24 November. We apologise for any inconvenience. We will be open again on Saturday 25 November, ready for Wells Christmas Tide. https://wellschristmastidefestival.co.uk/  

Wishing you a calm and warm Christmas
Mon 19 Dec 2022

We'd like to wish all our customers and suppliers a peaceful and happy Christmas.

We're past last posting dates for Christmas orders and while you can still order from this site, we're probably not going to send any more orders out now until after the Christmas weekend. We use the Royal Mail and their hard working staff have enough to be getting on with and frankly we'd rather parcels were a little delayed and reached you in good condition than got lost, damaged or delayed in the present disruption.

On the positive side, Inez has said she'll keep our little shop on Wells quayside open from Wednesday through to around lunchtime on Christmas Eve so do drop in for last minute gifts, to treat yourself or just to say hello; it's not as cold up here as it was.

The shop is easy to spot under the gantry on the quay... it's the one with the cat curled up by the warm fire in the window!

Our ever popular Christmas special soaps... yule love'em
Our ever popular Christmas special soaps... yule love'em

We do know it's not quite Christmas but some people like to be more organised than we ever manage so we've made the first batches of our ever popular Christmas soaps... Three Kings, Pomander and Christmas Spice. These are available as individual bars or as a joyful stack of three tied off with a golden ribbon. All three are palm oil free.

Ukraine Flag soap in support of refugee relief efforts
Fri 11 Mar 2022

МИЛО РУЧНОСТІ is made with Sunflower oil – the national flower of Ukraine –  and is scented with a fresh, lemon scent which, to me, represents hope. 

We're donating every penny of the purchase price for every bar ordered directly to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal at https://donation.dec.org.uk/ukraine-humanitarian-appeal ... so that's a £10 donation to help provide food, water, shelter and healthcare to refugees and displaced families along with a lovely soap bar on which you're only paying postage.

This is a palm-oil free soap and will only be available while stocks last!

Shop closed in January
Sun 2 Jan 2022

Our little shop on the quay will be closed for winter hibernation as usual throughout January and back open in February.

We are working as normal at our 'factory' so you are welcome to order from this website or, if you're in Wells and don't want to wait for the post, you can place a click-and-collect order and collect from us at Unit 2D, Maryland, Wells. 

Sssh, the you know what's are now available

Shop opening hours
Mon 5 Jul 2021

Just a reminder that our tiny shop on Wells quay is open from 11am to 4pm on Wednesdays through to Saturdays throughout the summer and into the autumn and winter.

The shop is almost under the gantry on the much-pictured Granary building on Wells quayside (NR23 1JT for SatNav or immediate.occupy.dark for What3Words) so it's easy to find but if you're coming by car you'll need to be parked nearby, either on the quay or in one of the town's other car parks, as there's no parking outside.

 

Shop window for Pride
Wed 23 Jun 2021

Radclyffe Hall, Marlene Dietrich, Alison Bechdel, Tove Jansson, Frieda Belinfante, Megan Rapinoe and Virginia Woolf grace our shop window this month for Pride in a set of beautiful pen and-ink portraits. Slightly less tastefully, the window also features a limited edition Gay Bar, a multicoloured (though not quite rainbow striped) special edition made from our other soaps priced at £5 per bar, all of which we are donating to AKT (the Albert Kennedy Trust), a charity which provides invaluable support for LGBTQ+ young people facing or experiencing homelessness or living in a hostile environment.

We've only made a few batches of this soap so first come, first served...
