I am excited! I am "do a little dance and squeal" excited! Okay, now it's time for me to get it together and be calm, cool, and collected. The Smiling Goat Soap Co. has swag. I mean, we are cool by nature...bib overalls are a way of life, not a fashion statement; insert a wink. However, I mean we have Swag Bags! (Dance and Squeal again!) I had an idea several months ago, and surprisingly, The Bibbed Wonder jumped on board. I know this may come as a shock to many of you, but The Bibbed Wonder is not a consumer. He doesn't care for swag, bling, or, well, really anything not farm-related. He doesn't understand swag. I wanted to provide bags at the market for my well-loved market family. However, I wanted to do something out of the ordinary and high quality. The Bibbed Wonder thought I was silly and frivolous, but I get swag. I love swag. I will shop to obtain swag. Please insert the dancing again.
I found lovely, quality canvas bags in my beloved black and natural with cotton rope handles, and they could be printed with our label. FUN! After several days of pestering, leaving the site up nonchalantly to be seen, discussing the benefits of swag, whining just a little, and promising not to go over the top, I got my swag bags. Now, you can get swag bags too! I apologize, peeps (I feel it necessary to use pop culture slang when discussing swag); swag bags are currently only available to our market family. The Bibbed Wonder is a tough negotiator with ridiculous terms for said swag. However, you can be the first to obtain the limited edition swag bag by preordering for Ligonier Country Market Pickup. The bags are free for orders of $50 or more. We will also have the swag bags at the market for in-person purchases for free with a $50 or more purchase. However, quantities are limited. Hence, my promise not to go over the top.
It doesn't take much to make me happy, but these bags definitely have me doing a happy dance. I can't help but smile every time I look at them. They are perfect for shopping at the farmer's market, going to the beach, or just hauling your summer gear. I believe you will be as impressed with them as I am. They are available just in time for the holiday weekend, and we will be releasing a new soap this week. I hope you have fun filling your swag bag with fun, quality products. Note, you will get bonus points for squealing and dancing when you see them.
As always, dear reader, stay safe, be smart, enjoy the swag, and wash your hands.
