What you'll do

Let's make some soap! We are a small soap company from the local area using local plants and ingredients in our soap to bring something unique to our customers. Join us as we demo making one of our soaps as we measure, mix, mix a scent, and handcraft a Tall Tales Soap design. Then join us for refreshments (a drink and a snack) and questions as you browse our soap collection. We will send you home with a recipe card, instructions, a bar of our signature soap and a mini lotion bar!

My cousin and I started a soap company this year to try to get away from our day jobs and do something that makes us happy. We love customizing for our customers and making the soap of their shower dreams. Tall Tales Soap Co. was born out of a string of DIY Christmas gifts and birthday presents as we tried to give something our friends and family would know was crafted with them in mind.

Very sweet host, however not what we expected at all. We were expecting a class in a store with other people where we would be able to customize and be more involved in the process. That’s not what we got in return. The location is far out at her house where we did it in her kitchen. We were not involved in much of the process other than mixing scents and colors. I wish we were able to customize our own soap and have more part of the process. Considering we paid $60 for two of us we did not get $60 worth of an experience out of this. I could have easily done it at home for much cheaper. At the end of the day I feel like I just helped her make her soap for her next costumers.

As you travel away from the busy city of Chattanooga towards a calming county side of Athens, one wonders if it truly worth the drive. The Answer is Yes and more. Maria was very welcoming and considerate. The soap experience was very enjoyable, fun and surprisingly informative. Maria told stories of her failed experiments, goofs, and don’t not try this at home; to how she made wonderfully smelling soap. It was not just the soap which I signed up for that made this experience wonderful but a family warmth. It felt uniquely special. To top it off, was her adorable dog Dixie, my girlfriend could not get enough her. We purchased Maria soaps and yes, she sells them online. So there you have it. One does not need a extravagant vacation to make memories. Just slow down and capture the moment. Maria’s soap making Airbnb experience proves that and more. Just try it out for yourself.
