Discover Wisconsin

The Kenosha Harbor Marketplace was filmed for the Discover Wisconsin TV show last Saturday. Maybe our market managers knew about this in advance, but I was taken by surprise.

I was thrilled when she came by my booth and had her team do extensive photo shoots of my product.

Why? It turns out that Capitol Brewery is a sponsor of the show. And of course I use their beer in my two beer soaps. Why choose this beer you may ask? I love it and I'm a stock holder in the company.

The wheat is grown on Washington Island Door County, WI for this beer. That makes this soap truly a home grown Wisconsin product.

Beer Soap

Patti's Potions Island Wheat and Wisconsin Amber beer soaps have been selling like crazy at the Kenosha Harbor Marketplace this summer.

Beer is not just for breakfast anymore. You can bathe with it.

new items

We have some fun, new, handcrafted, soap decks at Patti's Potions.

As you can see, they range from very light to quite dark to compliment any bathroom decor.
All are made of oak for long lasting quality. Each soap deck features grooves so that your handmade soap dries rapidly.

Why a soap deck? A wet soap bar or soap ball has more surface tension than a dry one. The desire is to create less surface tension with your soap container. Wet soap will melt away much sooner than one that is allowed to dry out between uses. This saves money in your wallet and means that less product is wasted.
