My biggest issue with this purchase isn't even how small this bottle of bay rum is or how overpriced it is. I made this purchase on the 3rd of March 2016. The seller didn't bother to contact me after I had waited a week and asked why my item didn't ship. Some time later I opened a case. Still no communication. Out of the blue on 19th of March 2016 I get a package. I open the box and to my dismay is the smallest bottle of bay rum I've ever seen. Good for maybe half your face. Not worth the wait or the money. It would cost more to ship back and get a refund than to just keep it. I should have read the description carefully for it did state volume, and that is my fault. Like I said though, this is about the massive delay in shipping, gross neglect in communication, and overall disappointment with the purchase experience. Never agai

Soaps inspired by songs

In 2011 I released an album called "The Victorian Dead" which included spoken biographies and songs about famous Victorian figures like Edgar Allan Poe and Annie Oakley. The same year I made my first batch of lavender soap, which I dubbed "LavenDarwin". The puns continued as I experimented with new scents, and soon I had 6 different soaps named with puns of Victorian characters. I opened the etsy shop in August of 2012.
