Metropolis Soap Company has been around since 2009 and has become a soapy POWERHOUSE. Or, it will be....once we get to the New York International Gift Fair!

The New York International Gift Fair is THE premiere wholesale tradeshow for gifts and housewares....like us! The bath and body section, known as Ex-TRACTS, houses some of the most well-known brands in the country (Crabtree and Evelyn, Archipelago, Voluspa), and up-and-coming brands....like us! It runs January 28 - February 2, 2012. Check out more info on the gift show here: www.nyigf.com.

Currently there are not many 100% vegan and natural companies showing at the Gift Show and so our message of cruelty-free ethics in skincare would be a refreshing change for the buyers!

The fee will be used solely for our booth space and electricity. We're ready to cover the manpower, the inventory, and fixtures needed to make our booth a success.

We've got the stock, we've got the look....we just need the upfront cash to pay for a space! Unfortunately, it gets a bit pricey to get into the show, and it's the ultimate catch-22: to get into the show you need the capital, but you get the capital from the buyers at the show!

Please help us make our dream come true and support your favorite vegan small business.

Also? Maybe check out the website to see what we're all about: www.metropolissoap.com

we're on etsy too: metropolisbody.etsy.com
