We get asked all the time, "Why the Narwhal?"
Well...let me tell you!
All kidding aside, Narwhals are amazing creatures. Yes, they are real (we get asked that a lot!). And we love that this large, lumpy, mysterious animal has such a beautiful place in our world. They swim in arctic waters, often under the ice.
Cool Fact: They can breed with beluga whales! And have! They've created a sub-species! They are the only to animals on earth that are part of the Monodontidae family and you can find their little offspring off the coast of Greenland.
COME ON. That is cool.
So why did we choose it for our brand? Well, when paired with a Manatee, they kinda cover all waters. They are ying and yang. They balance. That's what the Narwhal and the Manatee is all about: Balance.
Finding well-sourced ingredients to take care of the Earth. Making high quality product to help people balance their skin's health and glow. Making products available that are affordable and still good for the body and the environment. Balance.
Narwhals are truly fascinating creatures and you can read more about them here: https://www.worldwildlife.org/stories/unicorn-of-the-sea-narwhal-facts
This weekend we had the privileged of doing a workshop for a group of awesome middle school girls. They were celebrating a 12th birthday...in a hotel! (Jealous? It had a pool!) They invited us to come and make bath fizzies and bubbles and we had a BLAST!
It was pretty amazing. We just set up a table and got going. They girls had a wonderful time choosing their own scents, sprinkles, colors, bubbles and (of course) GLITTER!
We came up with this idea when we would hear people say, "I tried to make bath bombs, but it didn't work so well." or people that said, "I love to make these, but it's such a mess."
So we developed an excellent base recipe and we do all of the set-up and clean-up. Easy.
The best part? It's totally affordable.
Shop Small Saturday is coming. November 25...mark your calendars.
Why is Shop Small Saturday so important? Well...after you've snatched those amazing deals at big box stores (because, come on, that big screen TV is totally awesome...and you can't beat Black Friday prices!), it's important to remember "the little guy."
In all honesty, I look forward to Shop Small Saturday ALL YEAR. It's the day we launch our amazing Holiday line. It's the day that we meet more people that ever. It's the day that we really see our community support our little shop.
And in order to keep Fort Wayne thriving, unique and inviting, we need little shops like the Narwhal and the Manatee! So, please, make sure you save back some cash, come out and find some extra-special gifts from little shops all over Fort Wayne! (remember, November 25!)
