Black Friday. You've probably heard of it. The day after Thanksgiving where you wake up at 3 am to get in line at a big store and get all your Christmas shopping done by 9 am.
Instead...think about Shop Small Saturday!! It's November 26 this year, lasts all day (so you can casually shop, instead of try to avoid a punch to the gut in the check-out line), supports local business and you'll be giving the most creative, unique gifts this season!
We are absolutely participating (and are SUPER excited) and you can find other Fort Wayne small businesses that are part of the event here:
Seriously...give it a try. Support local. Support small business. Be cool.
We really love our customers. But you know what we love more? HELPING our customers!
Recently, we had a "regular" come in with complaints of her rough feet. And, well, we'll let her explain...
"My feet get extremely calloused, cracked, and rough during wintertime. This year I have a job where I wear high heels on a daily basis, often times I walk to work. My feet became the worst they have ever been. I've tried pummel stones, scrubs, lotions, and just about anything I could think of and I still had pretty gnarly dragon feet. I messaged one of the owners of The Narwhal and Manatee and asked for some help and she recommended the Neat Sweet Feet Balm. It is basically a lip balm for feet. It's made with cocoa butter, tangerine essential oil, beeswax, Shea seed butter, cinnamon leaf oil, wheat germ oil, and cedar wood essential oil. I love the container! It's so user friendly. You don't have to touch your feet at all. You just roll the buttery goodness on your feet and watch them heal immediately! It's not super oily or messy at all. I was able to walk on my feet right after applying it. My feet were completely healed, soft, and back to normal within 36 hours. This product and the company definitely gets 5 stars from me!"
And, guess what? She shared photos! Now, we realize they are feet pics, but it shows how serious we are about our products and how much we stand behind them. Plus, we are totally stoked that someone trusted us enough to take pictures of their FEET! Thank you! You're AWESOME!
Three days! Seriously! That's all it took! Want some?? We've got some both in our shop and online!
Ok. So you know that we do customizations: weddings, baby showers, birthday parties. We love it! But did you know that we can help you create your own signature scent and make customized products just for you? We can!
Our awesome friend, Micki, came in with three scents in mind: Chocolate Peppermint, Blueberry Vanilla and Butter Beer (yes, from Harry Potter!). She wanted whipped sugar scrubs and whipped body butters. And we said, "Ok! Let's do it!"
And we did! And they are awesome. She'll tell you about it...
"I am in so much actual heaven right now with my custom made sugar scrubs from The Narwhal and the Manatee! Thank you so much M Elizabeth Sutton and Traci Henning-Kolberg for being so great! The sky's the limit with these ladies! If you haven't ordered a custom made product you MUST!!! WOW!!!!❤️"
She was so excited that she took this picture in her car as soon as she got them. We love Micki!
But really....think of the possibilities! You could seriously up the ante on ladies' night by creating your very own signature scent and wow all your friends! OR you could create super fun bath fizzies for some extra-special stocking stuffers for all your nieces and nephews! OR you could flatter all your co-workers with a relaxing, personalized hand lotion. Seriously, the possibilities are (pretty much) endless!
