At various events that we are able to setup our mobile shop we get asked the following question frequently.
How did you come up with the name of your shop?
Presently The Polar Bear and the Elephant includes …
- The Crafty Mermaid
- Green Path Monastery
- River Willow Apothecary
- Steals Deals and Freebies
- The Little Corner
We needed a shop name that would be inclusive of our various brands and endeavors.
So Lacie and I decided that we would go with our spirit animals and The Polar Bear and the Elephant was born.
The Polar Bear and the Elephant is a mobile pop up handmade crafts and jewelry shop. We are also located at Pockets of Time in Chester, Va.
In brief the above is true however we are really so much more.
We are the home of The Crafty Mermaid brand of Quality Handmade Products. We specialize in making goats milk soaps, candles and wax melts.
We are the home of Green Path Monastery. Green Path Monastery has been created to share with others how we have reconnected with nature and spirit utilizing the Wheel of the Year. Our focus as a Shrine is on healing ourselves, our families, our communities and our planet.
We are the home of River Willow Apothecary. River Willow is an educational community outreach teaching outdoor skills and extolling the benefits of wild foods and herbal medicine.
