West of Olympia is an artisan maker of shaving soaps. Everything is made by hand in Kelso, WA one batch at a time by me. This is a business motivated by passion and pride, not by money.
I hope you enjoy the products as much as I enjoy making them.
Is my store currently sold out?
No, I haven't stopped making soap, and no, the store isn't idle. I make things in very small batches and they tend to sell out rather quickly. I maintain a careful control over the products I develop, make, and test, which unfortunately makes for some extended stock-outs. I'm also just a hobbyist (with a "normal" day job), so I can't devote every waking hour to this.
If you notice things are sold out, the best way to catch product restocks is to sign up for the email newsletter. I make sure that the people who are on that list are the first to know about product releases and stock replenishing schedules. You can sign up to receive those emails on the bottom of the homepage.
And of course, I'm always around for any other questions you have: firstname.lastname@example.org.
