Time is running out to find that perfect holiday gift.
To help spur your gift-giving ideas and keeping in the "Shop Local" spirit, Patch is showcasing one hot item from Dunedin's Mom and Pop shops each day until Dec. 25.
With just three shopping days left until Christmas, consider this idea from Two Palms Soaps at 1356 Main St:
- Item: Handmade, all-natural, scented and unscented soaps
- What Makes it a Perfect Gift? Twelve years ago, owner Shirley Crawford started making her own soap when she discovered she was allergic to everything else. Her soaps are made from scratch with all-natural ingredients. She mixes special recipes for an array of fruity, floral, fresh and clean, and minty frangrances, but also keeps plenty of the standard, moisturizing Goatmilk unscented, color-free soaps in stock. Her soaps are made using a process that takes weeks to complete. And with names like "Mistletoe Kissed," "Veeery Sexy," and "Minty Mudpie," you know these soaps are fun.
- Price tag: $2 for a guest bar and $6 for a regular size bar
- Store Hours: Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, closed. Crawford said she will be open on Christmas Eve.
