Thank you for your interest in Alchemist of Avalon! Unfortunately I've decided to close the shop. I'm so thankful for everyone who came out to support us online and at conventions.

It breaks my heart to make this announcement because we really started to hit a stride in 2021. I am proud to say that we were profitable within less than a year, which is a milestone many entrepreneurs don't reach for many years if at all.

Soap making is a very labor-intensive process. The business was at a point where it needed undivided attention or the help of a few dedicated employees to be really worthwhile - essentially a "go big or go home" scenario.

This is a very difficult call that many small business owners face as their companies grow. At this point in my life, I don't have the time to grow the business to its fullest potential. Thank you for your support and for making my business a success while it lasted!
