Less than a month ago, in one of our events, we met a delightful and amazing woman who was searching for items to outfit her new store. She selected a few items there, and then made an appointment to visit our place since she needed a few more tables, mirrors and such.
I am talking about Peggy O'Kelly, president/founder of the St. Helena Olive Oil Co.
Peggy told us that some of the images on our web site had inspired her and that she wanted to create her new store, Napa Valley Bath Co. with a soft and feminine touch. By the way, her new store will be opening on November 25.
Napa Valley Bath Co.will feature a line of organic and natural bath products made from organic lavender that they distill in the Napa Valley. It will have a scent bar where customers can experience the different aromas and learn about the plants and their therapeutic values, etc. It will be a blend of aromatherapy and bath and body. Follow Peggy on Facebook for more information on the grand opening. here
When she came to our place, we were pleased that she was able to find plenty of pieces she could use. While she selected them, we were impressed by her pleasant nature and strong sense of what she liked and wanted.
Peggy has strong core values about her products and life in general. She takes great care to understand each step of the way in the creation of her products because she aims to provide healthy products that both go in and on the body. For more on her philosophy and production ethics. Here
She shared a bit with us about her two tasting rooms and their "look." Yesterday we paid her stores a visit and saw that they are both tastefully and yet daringly decorated in a French, rustic style that fits quite well with her products. We walked around the stores admiring all her pieces and vignettes, as we sampled some of her delicious variety of dipping olive oils. Johan couldn't resist taking some photos and as we admired them later, decided to share this amazing place with you. We also couldn't resist buying a few bottles of oil to enjoy later. I chose one bottle of jalapeno flavored oil, Johan chose the one with basil, and Martin chose some wonderful Dijon mustard. We just enjoyed some of those before and during dinner.
Next time you are in the Napa Valley area, pay Peggy and the St. Helena Olive Oil Co. a visit, either the tasting rooms, or soon at her bath and body store.
