A Prickly Pair is February’s featured vendor at 2nd Street Market, and for good reason! Laurie Burns and Meghan Heater have been at the Market location for six years, offering an outstanding variety of soaps, lotions, bath gels and other beauty products that make great gifts! (See the slideshow). “We have lotion bars, which are lotion in a solid form made from shea butter, beeswax and healthy oils,” says Laurie Burns, who operates A Prickly Pair with her daughter, Meghan Heater. “The bars will heal any dry and cracked skin problems. We also have fragranced soaps in foam pumps or regular bar-style.”
Another popular item is fairy dust. “This product is a bath powder with shimmer,” Meghan explains. “It’s packaged in a decorative salt shaker that’s pretty and easy to use. It makes a wonderful gift for any special little girl.” (Or big girl).
Fragrances change seasonally: “Soon we will have the ever-popular lilac scent and we’ll bring back the Gardener’s Guardian line of products, featuring all-essential oils made specifically with a gardener’s needs in mind,” Laurie says. (If you hurry, you can still get some Christmas Tree liquid soap, which has a lovely fresh, sweet balsam fragrance, perfect for all winter long).
Personal note: I became a fan the day I was washing up before lunch at the Market and was struck by the wonderful fragrance of the liquid soap. Examining the label, I was delighted to see that this foaming soap (Christmas Tree) was sold at the Market, and have used it and given it as gifts ever since!
A Prickly Pair will create gift boxes for any occasion, and can make personalized products for bridal showers, baby showers, or even unique wedding favors. Watch the Market for special discounts—Laurie and Meghan (along with several other Market vendors) distribute a 10% off coupon in conjunction with Market special activities or classes. Currently, anyone purchasing $20.00 or more at A Prickly Pair will receive one of their beautiful, chubby heart soaps free!
A Prickly Pair products are also in the gift shop at Eleanor’s Tea Cottage in Troy, Ohio. “Our gift shop features Prickly Pair products, and we serve high tea by appointment,” Meghan says.
A Prickly Pair at 2nd Street Market is open Thursday & Friday 11 am – 3 pm and Saturday 8 am – 3 pm, year-round.
