The story of the Cats in the Cradle

Cats in the Cradle was started in 1991 as a means to help support an ever growing number of stray and injured cats that found their way to our old New England farmhouse. We found homes for many of them over the years but inevitably others became our own house pets.
Today that number is much less, we now dote on our few kitties and do the best we can for the occasional transient stray.
In addition to handmade soaps and skin care products, I offer vintage and antique treasures gathered far and wide from years of collecting. I still love hunting for wonderful old treasures and offer some here in my shop.
My handmade soaps and skin care products are made in small batches using the finest natural botanical ingredients and cold process. They are long lasting and beautifully packaged with vintage images, original artwork and antique papers. I hope you enjoy using them as much as I enjoy making them!

New vintage items are offered weekly so do check back often. I generally do not do "layaway" but if requested Items can be put on "reserve" or "layaway" with at least 20% down payment and final payment due within 2 weeks.. If you change your mind or fail to pay the balance on time item will be relisted and your initial down payment will not be refunded.
