a Dripping Springs, Texas Art Gallery, Sculpture Garden and Shopping Destination
Developing wholesale accounts has never been part of my Haiku Soap business plan. With that said, I DO have a few wholesale accounts (and I can count them on just one hand). I don't service them because they sell a high volume of product, or because they offer high profile visibility for my beautiful product line, or for any other sound business reason. I do it because I genuinely LIKE the business owners, LIKE having the excuse to visit with them regularly and LIKE making a contribution that I hope helps their business' grow.

I fell in love with Sol'stice Gardens on my first visit about 45 seconds after getting out of the car. My sister actually 'discovered' Sol'stice. She and her husband were visiting from Colorado and we took a very scenic Texas Hill Country drive from my house in Spicewood via Round Mountain to Johnson City (for some shopping and beef jerky) circling back on Hwy 290 toward Dripping Springs eventually planning to make it to my retail store Under One Roof, On the Square in Wimberley Texas.
As we cruised into Dripping Springs 'proper', a moving metal sculpture dancing on the horizon caught my sister's eye. It reminded her of an artist's work she had seen on a recent trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico. (In a conversation with Sol'stice Gallery Owner, Chris, we learned that the metal sculptures showcased on the grounds are in fact made by that same Santa Fe artist, Mark White.) Joe (my brother in law) was commanded by Joy (my precious little sister) to slam on the brakes and turn right back around!
Now you have an idea of some of the reasons why I fell in love with Solstice Gardens. I hope I've given you a taste of just how delightful this little jewel of a spot is. I hope you'll put Sol'stice Gardens on your 'must do' list next time your route takes you near Dripping Springs, Texas.
Oh, and after you check out the lovely grounds be sure to go inside to see the local artist gallery showcase. You'll find an inviting selection of some of the finest locally handcrafted soap available in the Texas Hill Country ... and I do say so myself!
