Our Story: Sweet Tea’s Soaps & Stuff was started in January 2011 by Beth Barton. Some local farmers decided to create a Summer Market and had asked local crafters to participate in this new community endeavor. Beth was publishing a local interest magazine called “Sweet Tea, The Magazine That Refreshes” and thought it was a good place to distribute this free, feel good publication to the masses. A closet crafter for years, Beth decided to learn how to make handcrafted soap to sell each Saturday morning along with her other offerings – the magazine, a cookbook and sweet tea. Her husband Perry was a natural salesman at the market as he used and believed in the fantastic feel and benefits of the all natural olive oil soap. They found they LOVED the market and Beth LOVED to make soap so they continued to do festivals for many years. Beth even retired from the publishing business at the end of 2012 after 26 years to pursue her “hobby” as a full time endeavor. Since the business’ conception, over 50 retail stores partnered with them to buy products at wholesale which they, in turn, offered customers in their establishments. Online sales took off, too.
Not all good things come to an end – sometimes they just get better. This was the case when Beth crossed paths with Hannah Goodman at the beginning of 2018. Hannah is a licensed esthetician and knows skin care. She recognized Sweet Tea’s Soaps were the best around for all skin types and expressed an interest in the business. So, at the beginning of 2019, Beth retired and Hannah became the new “Sweet Tea Lady” when she purchased the business. Hannah studied all the recipes of the wide variety of products and learned the tricks of the trade. She offers the same products (and more) at festivals, stores and online. Sweet Tea’s Soaps & Stuff will grow to new heights with Hannah and her tremendous marketing abilities, youthful energy and desire to make great products for those who truly need them. She has added new retail partners in Georgia and other states just in the first few months of ownership! Hannah’s husband Mason will join her at most shows just as Perry did for Beth. They make a great team!
