Stuff for your skin. Crap free. Guaranteed.

I don't actually know why it took me so long to think of this. I don't.
I go places, and then I write about it. That's it, that's the blog.
I can't say that 'darkly seductive' was what I was going for, but I'll take it.
It smells like orange. Fortunately it also cleans like orange.
I go places, and I take pictures while I'm there.



Welcome to The Vagabond Tabby, where everything is crap free, guaranteed.

I only use ingredients I know are safe. They’re natural, often organic or wildcrafted, the highest grade. I test anything new on myself before I start selling it. ‘Natural’ is where I start, but I also research each ingredient’s safety, effectiveness, and environmental impact. And then I only pick the best.

I want to offer you what’s best for you β€” even when it’s more work and costs me more money, when taking a shortcut would sure hell be easier. Because this is what I believe in, this is my passion: making sure that what I sell really is that good.

Why do I do all this? Because soap matters. Never underestimate soap! You use it to scrub your skin (the largest organ in the body), you rinse it off into the earth. You spray my bug spray into the air we all breathe (and on your kids) and rub healing salve into hurty spots and soak your hide in my bath salts. This stuff matters.

    It’s probably a good thing I can’t get out of the booth more often, all things considered, because I’m hardly the only merchant at Estrella, and there are people out there with really, really tempting stuff. And some good friends of mine as well. We spend all day, every day, in our booths…or at least […]

    Mulling Spices Soap

    It’s cold out. Might could be you could use something to warm you up. No detergents, no fragrance oils, no petroleum (save it for your car!), just straight-up, crap-free, gets-you-clean soap. What it’s got instead is an almost ridiculous amount of happy skin stuff: Shea butter, mango butter, and cocoa butter. Handmade, natural, and crap […]
