Moving, and sale. Moving sale!


Guess what. I’m moving! I’m gonna be a West Philadelphian. I’m gonna have indoor plumbing in the same building where I live!!!! This is huge. I think it’ll be a good place for my mini-family. I’ll have lots of space for projects and we can walk to the farmer’s market.

Also, roof access to the nice flat roof. When the weather’s nice I’m going to do nothing but cook prancy food and eat it up there.

Also also, there is nice new light carpet. I happen to have a nice black cat. I see and investment in a good vacuum cleaner in my near future. Anyone have one they’d recommend?

In honor of the move (and because I want to take as little with me as possible) I’m having a moving sale! 25% off eyerything on the One True Mango site until March 24 at noon with the coupon code WESTPHILLY.


Spring cleaning soap sale and giveaway!


It’s springtime! It snowed today, but it is springtime because I say so. Also, the first brand-new flowers say so.

In honor of self-proclaimed springtime, I have cut the prices of my soaps in half for spring cleaning and am now offering them for $6 apiece. I’ve got a range of colors, scents and patterns including LGBTQAcetera pride inspired designs. Check out the full selection!

What is a One True Mango felted soap, you may ask? It is a soap that I have hand-poured and scented The scents are NICE, too, every time I bring these to a craft fair people stand around smelling them and going “mmmm.”

When the soaps are done I felt them with soft fluffy roving. The result is like a soap and washcloth all in one! It’s gently exfoliating and there’s no squishy mess like with regular bar soap. As Stephan says, “I didn’t really get felted soap, but then I tried one. Now I want ALL of my soaps to be felted.”

In addition to awesome new prices, I am holding a wee giveaway of three felted soaps. Your name goes back into the running each time, so you could conceivably win two or even three if you are super lucky.

I’m drawing for one each of the following:

A spiral blue patchouli soap,

patchouli blue

a pink cherry blossom soap,


and a blue-green stone pattern rosemary mint soap!
