Misery Loves Company

I’m building a forum.

Does anyone even use forums nowadays?
I’m still gonna build it regardless, because I like building them, but here’s a little bit of background info.

Back when I first started Strange Brew, it was always my intention to not just be like just any other shop, but to build a community (well more like a secret society really, but we’ll get to the handshakes and rituals later). So alongside Strange Brew there used to be a blog/forum called La Maison de la Mort, which was a a lifestyle community for the grown-up Goth/Steampunk/Metaller/Neo-viking/General weirdo etc

Anyway, La Maison fell by the wayside, but I still really want Strange Brew customers to be like a little chosen family. I want Strange Brew to be a company that listens to its customers, not only about the products but about who you are and what you do. I want to read your blogs and like your stores, and trade at your events, and go see your band play.

So, I have decided to add a forum to the website. There will be a place for Strange Brew related things, and a place for La Maison, and a place for my sisters venture ‘The Veiled Path’ (although I changed the name to Strange Brew, because, that’s what we are).

So if you fancy being part of the Strange Brew fam, sign over your souls here http://strangebrewsoap.com/forum/ talk about soaps, music, whatever you like. this is your new home


The Introduction of Alchemy

Hello Strangelings

With the help of your feedback we have decided that Strange Brew will offer some bespoke items.

 We know that some people don’t like ‘bits’ in their soaps such as glitter and flowers etc and would just prefer a plain bar, so for every bar we make with inclusions, you will be able to order a plain version, no bits, just fragranced.

Also, so we can include people whose skin is of a sensitive nature, but who like the appearance of a certain product, by request we can provide an unfragranced option.

Thirdly, you may really like the look of a certain soap, it might match your bathroom perfectly or be in your favorite color, but you don’t like the fragrance, Well, there will also be an option to have any stock soap made with any stock fragrance. As this will be an order made specifically for you as an individual, you will have to order it by the loaf (around 10 bars of soap’s worth) I’m hoping that pretty much caters for a wide variety of individual requirements and we’re always open to discussion for custom orders.
