Welcome to Cats in the Cradle Farmhouse Soaps!
MERRY CHRISTMAS from our old farmhouse to your house!
Well, it can't be the 4th of July forever now, can it?? This past year has gone by like a whirlwind! I apologize for not updating the site sooner, but we have had an incredibly busy year in one way or another. I hope you all have a very merry and safe Christmas and happy New Year!
don't forget to visit our main online shop:
There you will find many lovely soaps, skin care products, beeswax ornaments and castings made from antique molds, and of course lots of wonderful old vintage and antique treasures. It's fast and easy to order on Etsy!
Fragrant Beeswax Santa Candles poured from vintage molds, available on Etsy
Our handmade soaps make a thoughtful holiday gift Silent Soaps will be returning to this site very soon so check back after the holidays!
Check out our photos on Picture Trail! New updates and photos coming soon
Vintage offerings on ETSY are from my own private collection gathered from years of treasure hunting, and from recent trips to do what I love doing most....perusing flea markets and antique shops!
We are located near beautiful Alton Bay in the "Live Free or Die" state of New Hampshire! If in our area, stop by to say hi!
Our chubby boy is always happy to see visitors and
will extend his paw in friendship (he thinks he's a dog).
The folks at Cats in the Cradle have a sense of humor and we hope you do too......the late great Jackie Gleason says it all.........
We love our pets, all of whom are (and were) strays in desperate need. The kindest and most rewarding thing you can do is to help animals in need right in your own neck of the woods. Please consider donating to your favorite local shelter or adopting a shelter pet. Help make this year a happy one for homeless animals and provide a "forever home" for a shelter pet. Charity begins at home!
