Welcome to The Polar Bear and the Elephant! We are so excited that you have found our blog and come to visit.
We began our business as The Crafty Mermaid and we focused on creating handmade Goats Milk Soaps, Candles and Soy Wax Melts.
To this day even though we changed the name of our business the Crafty Mermaid Brand of Quality Handmade Products is still in operation creating the best Handmade Goats Milk Soaps that money can buy.
Our soaps come in a variety of fragrances, colors and shapes and our fragrances are some of the best available.
Please do not just take my word for it but come on by one of our locations in Chester, Virginia today.
Our soaps are available at Pockets of Time in Chester, Virginia.
4100 West Hundred Rd.
You can also find us on Saturdays at the Chester, Virginia Farmers Market.
11700 Chester Village Dr.
As we expanded and began to be involved in many other exciting endeavors we decided to operate collectively as The Polar Bear and the Elephant.
The Polar Bear and the Elephant is a mobile pop up handmade crafts and five dollar 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.
River Willow Apothecary was created as a platform to share with you of the abundance of our own personal herbal apothecary. This has evolved into an educational outreach where you can learn about herbal medicine making, first aid, survival, and self-sufficiency.
We are the home of Steals, Deals and Freebies which is a rather large and somewhat popular Facebook Group that share awesome deals and products on Amazon.
Lastly we are the home of Baby Bear and Friends which is both a community and a shop that focuses on age regression. We are here to help you to enjoy your regression experiences by providing you with the “little things” that make our little space a hit.
