October ushers in my favorite time in Southeastern Virginia. Temperatures start to finally cool off and it seems like every weekend there is a festival, market or special event showcasing the best of this beautiful area we get to call home. With all of the fun “play” comes a lot of work as we are finishing up our holiday seasonal lines to ensure we have a great launch on November 4th. We think you’ll be very happy with our holiday collection that will feature some of our past favorites and a few new, exciting products to try!
New Product Alert!

Creamier than our standard lip balm, our lip butter is made with Organic Sunflower Oil, Shea Butter, Beeswax and Vitamin E to nourish and soothe tender lips. Sold in a seasonal set of 4, our lip butter is available in Butterbeer, Cinnamon Swizzle, Cozy (Apple Pie flavors) and Perfectly Pear'd.
Meet the Team - Main Street, Smithfield
Last month we introduced you to our Williamsburg Downtown team. This month, we’d like to introduce you to our Smithfield team. They’re an amazing group of ladies who love what they do, and it shows!
Erin is the Gal Gadot of superwomen, the Annie Oakley of outlaws, the RBG of justice, a rebel without a cause …. when she’s not filling sippy cups, changing diapers, walking the dog and trying to find time to shower … or managing our Smithfield retail store! Erin’s a mom of 2 kiddos… a 5 year old and a soon to be 2 yr old as well as an old Lady Boxer, Lou. She’s Indiana born and raised, but has been living here and loving Virginia since 2002.
When we asked Erin about her self care routine, she let us know that one of her favorite ways to self care is to treat herself to a weekly facial mask whilst enjoying 10-15 minutes of alone time locked in her bathroom with noise canceling headphones. She loves all things Rosemary Mint and her pro-tip is that our lotion bars are super concentrated… less is more. If you’re greasy, you’ve used too much!
Jessie is a wife and girl mom to a soon to be 2 year old. Originally from NC, Jessie moved to Smithfield almost 3 years ago. Jessie’s a lady who knows what she likes … 11 years ago, she dated, engaged, and married her now husband within a 6 month time frame (IYKYK)!“ Jessie loves to take EXTREMELY LONG showers (minimum 45 mins) and pairs her long showers with our eucalyptus mint shower steamer.
We asked Jessie about her favorite products and her overall favorite scent is Pink Peppermint, although within the seasonal scents that pop up her favs would be Exotic Jade, Giving Thanks, Noel, and Jack Frost. When it comes to her can’t live without it product, Raspberry Seed Oil in the morning paired with our After Sun Vitamin C Serum at night, keeps this busy momma’s skin glowing!
Jessie’s pro-tip – Pop your cucumber eye gel in the fridge for an even more soothing experience!
Robin grew up in a small town about an hour south of Buffalo, NY and currently makes Isle of Wight County home with her boyfriend, Kevin. Her three children and three grandchildren bring her much joy. She loves to spend time outdoors as much as possible; hiking, biking or just hanging out at the beach.
Robin was first a customer, since 2015, back when we sold our products from a booth at the Smithfield Farmers Market, and in 2021, she joined our team. We asked Robin about her favorite products and she said our Fresh Linen Scented Laundry Soap is a favorite because it has a wonderful scent and makes her clothes and linens feel soft. She also loves our bar soaps because they are very moisturizing and she uses the Glow Natural Facial Oil every night. Robin’s pro-tip comes from her grandmother who looked very young even into her 90’s. Her advice to great looking skin was…. to moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!!!
Jill is a fisheries manager for the state of Virginia (how cool is that job!) and works part time at our Smithfield store. Jill loves the outdoors and can’t imagine a summer without our leave-in conditioner spray and our coconut sea salt spray!
Right now hee favorite soap is the pink peppermint salt soap for its lather and awesome smell! Leaves her skin feeling so soft and clean .
Jill knows a thing or two about fishing and her pro-tip is that she keeps a lemon pop super scrubber loofah soap at her garden sink to get her hands squeaky clean after gardening or fishing. Fresh, smooth & soft!
Chelsea is a wife and dog mom who grew up right here in Smithfield. She enjoys traveling and spending time at outdoor restaurants and breweries. She’s been with our team part-time since 2018 and always looks forward to new product releases ... and our spray deodorant has quickly become her new favorite product! Chelsea’s Pro-tip: If you find you're obsessed with a particular scent (like Chelsea is with our spring seasonal Midnight Plumeria), she recommends you utilize our Perfectly You product line to layer your favorite products in that scent you can't get enough of!
