SoapSpaces: Irena of Gingers Garden!

Wednesday, August 12, 2009 |

The incredible and super-helpful Irena of Gingers Garden opened up her SoapSpace for us to drool over!
My space is a sealed off former formal living room.
It's located in my house.
My favorite find is my curing racks that I found at a restaurant supply that was going out of business.
I've had my soapspace for 12 years here in the desert. Before that I've had a retail space and a studio in Santa Barbara.
Do you keep anything around for inspiration? I keep my mother's handmade soap as a reminder how much harder it was for her to make soaps then. It's a little shop worn, but it's still a good soap.
Do you like to have anything on in the background while you work? Techno and Adult Contemporary music keep my pace up.
How often do you visit your soapspace? I go to my soap space at least once a day. On soapmaking or shipping days much more than that.
Is your soapspace a public or private place? My soap space is mostly private. I did let my mail lady and my USPS man come and choose a soap of their liking in thanks for their help over the years.

Thanks, Irena! Be sure to check out her incredible selection of'll definitely be able to find something there for everyone! Gingers Garden
