2020 Holiday Events

Ana Brito

This weekend, I would typically be scrambling and getting everything ready for the busy holiday in person shows. Sadly, this year we find ourselves in a unique situation, where meeting in person just isn't possible. But that hasn't stopped the amazing maker community! I'm so excited to be taking part in two amazing virtual events. Below is a brief description of each event! You can find Wren & Rita in both. We will be running a 20% off special from 11/27/20 5pm to 11/30/20 11:59pm so make sure to check out the shop!

Handmade Arcade Virtual Marketplace is OPEN. From now until 12/6, you can support small maker businesses like mine by committing to shopping small this holiday season. Visit their website at https://www.handmadearcade.org for over 130 maker businesses, virtual classes, demos, raffles, and more. Shop small, shop local, shop handmade!

Featuring more than 150 makers, artists and small businesses, you'll find something for absolutely everyone on your list in our holiday show catalog. Inspired by the gigantic print holiday shopping catalogs of our childhood, except instead of bending down page corners you'll need to print out pages and circle what you want if you need to leave hints around the house!

Benefits Of Our Solid Lotion Bar

Ana Brito

Wren & Rita solid lotion bars are made with 5 simple ingredients; Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E. This combination offers the perfect amount of moisture for your skin without leaving a sticky mess. It quickly absorbs and leaves your skin feeling smooth and hydrated.

Coconut oil is made from the kernel of mature coconuts harvested from coconut palms. 

Shea Butter comes from the fruit of the Shea (karite) tree. We use a pure, 100% natural, unrefined shea butter sourced from Baraka Shea Butter.

Cocoa Butter comes from the cacao bean, giving it its distinct chocolate scent. After the bean is dried and roasted it is pressed to extract the vegetable fat (cocoa butter). What remains is then ground to become cocoa powder. 

We selected these components because they contain a high concentration of vitamins, antioxidants and moisturizing properties. Together they blend into the perfect lotion bar, free of water, additives or colorants. We add a natural premium beeswax to solidify the oils into a bar. Vitamin E is also added as a natural preservative to extend the life of the lotion bar.

Our solid lotion bar is the perfect size to toss in your purse, backpack, and you'll never have it taken away by TSA! It's great for your hands as well as elbows, heels and any other place that could use some extra love. Our bars are available unscented as well as in a variety of scents.
