Advent day 11, win a soap, Fabrikat, and an idea

This draw is closed: Thank you and please make sure not to miss your chance to win an explorer set Dec. 13 (open until Dec.1 5).

Today, day 11, you can win a soap, perfume in a soap,  “Mandarines ambrées”, again. Just leave a comment and you are in. See also the fine print below.
We have another prize on the advent calendar today, 80$ going to the Swiss Red Cross. They have my full trust and support; they are big, but highly effective. There exist many other local and national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies.

Today’s picture shows you my contribution to a lovely idea of Regina and others behind the shop FABRIKAT in Zurich, Switzerland. They sent out a piece of paper (actually 3) and a Kaweco pen, asking the recipients to write, draw X-mas greetings. They collected the contributions and share them now in the advent time, in their network, for instance through their newsletter. I love this idea!

I have to be honest with you: I mentioned making soaps for a store, from time to time. Fabrikat is the store. If you find time and if you are in the region of Zurich: This store is a must. You will find the most amazing products that you would not believe still existed. Like hand made scissors, from Japan. Or the most amazing pens from the UK, the “Oblaten” from Germany are to die for, and and and. And the shop’s interior is just, like, wow!

Today will be a nice day, for sure. And I hope that your’s will be lovely, too. Let’s share the joy!

And here’s the fine print: we pick a winner using The soap ships from Zurich, Switzerland. And wherever you live, local taxes, VAT, and import fee may apply and are not covered by Tauer. The winner is responsible for making sure that they are allowed to import the prize. The draw is open for anybody, but winners from these countries should provide a mailing address elsewhere: Italy, Russia, Spain, Croatia, Greece.
