Who: The Soap Kitchen
Where: Pasadena, CA
Why: I love small businesses and learning the stories of the owners. My sisters and I went to The Soap Kitchen yesterday and met Dali, the owner, and her shop dog Shea Butter. She has been in business for over 10 years and is a soap magician. She creates, makes and sells all of the soap from her little store only using natural ingredients. When I asked her why she got into the soap business she said, "I love that I can make something with my own hands and have a business out of it." If you are ever in Pasadena, stop by her shop or check out her website and order online.
