Moon's Harvest Bath & Body Trends
Moon's Harvest was started in 2004 when I was looking for a retirement business and Erica was looking for a career. We have always loved bath & body products, but we always disliked paying the high prices for them.
We did a lot of studying, research, and comparison shopping and found that even though there are 1000's of product lines out there with great products, they all had one thing in common, high prices.
We knew a lot of women that couldn't afford to take advantage of the benefits of high quality at home spa treatments. And this is the foundation that Moon's Harvest was built on, high quality fresh products that everyday women and men could afford. We need to take care of our skin too!
It's really not all that hard to do. We search for high quality affordable ingredients within the USA. Companies with outstanding reputations, like Brambleberry, Coastal Scents, Saveon Scents, Wilkinson, and The Chemistry Store, just to name a few. We buy ingredients in bulk and pass the savings on to the consumer.
We use the same high quality ingredients that all the famous name brand companies use, we just take less of the profits. As a matter of fact I will put any of my products next to any of theirs in a comparison and we will probably come out on top. These companies are all about the profits, and all about the profits.
We are a Bath & Body Products company with one thing in mind and that is the consumer. We love to see people's faces when they come across our products at a craft show and see the quality for the low prices. They light up like candles in disbelief.
I am sure a lot of people walk away asking themselves why do they do that? (My family asks all the time). The simple answer is "We want to" and we enjoy it. What could be better than doing something you love and being able to make others happy in the process.
We need to get the word out there that there are companies you can count on to deliver high quality products at affordable prices. We don't want to be on the list of companies that rape consumers for their last dime and that list is getting longer and longer every day, not just on beauty products, but everything from food, gas, clothes, cars, homes and just about everything else.
Our products are not a necessity, they are a luxury, and we want everyone to be able to afford to indulge occasionally. We offer our products on line, and in a few stores in the East Texas area. For more information you can visit www.moonsharvest.net or call 903-881-0899.

Henrietta's Handbags got it’s official start in 2001 when a love of handbags and sewing turned into a thriving business within a few years.
I always loved bags ever since I can remember and my happiest hours were spent playing with my Mom’s purses in the bottom of her closet. This passion for bags blossomed when I started sewing at the age of 16 but found that making clothes did not give me any satisfaction but sewing handbags was a complete pleasure! You had a finished project in anywhere from hours to a few days and family and friends seem to really appreciate a handmade handbag.
Henrietta's Handbags first began as an experiment on E-Bay with a few hand-crafted purses and they actually sold, which was confirmation that something I was doing that was completely fun could really earn me some money! This is when the idea of an online handbag business was first born.
Within a few years of starting the online handbag business, we added purse patterns to the site and found that a lot of our biggest customers were in Europe and Asia. We also found some very talented pattern designers in Australian, including Monica Poole/Moonshine Designs and Melly & Me. There are also some lesser know American pattern designers that we carry such as Purse-O-Nality of Palm Harbor and StarFlash Designs as well as the more well know companies like Amy Butler, Indygo Junction, and StudioKat Designs.
A few years ago, I decided I wanted more control over how the website was presented so I started reading books on web design, which eventually lead to taking college classes towards a Web Design certification. I have found this is yet another avenue towards exercising creativity and I have come to love working on Henrietta's Handbags almost as much as making bags!
Our goal is to give our customers the greatest variety of purse patterns to choose from at the best possible price. About a year ago we decided to offer free shipping on all purse pattern, purse pattern, purse pattern kits, and purse pattern books. The response has been great and we have testimonials from many satisfied customers.
We plan on expanding Henrietta's Handbags by adding an even greater variety of purse patterns, unique handbags, and purse pattern books. We also offer a blog that is updated weekly, an RSS feed, and a handbag fact of the week to keep the true handbag fanatic up to date on the latest and greatest bags and patterns. As we grow, our product line will continue to offer top quality at the lowest possible price. We have been online since 2001 and plan on staying true to our commitment to our customers.
