Bonnie Bartley, aka soapsmith http://www.artfire.com/users/soapsmith makes some really cool and unusual soap. Like this beautiful Ruby Rock soap. I would probably buy it, and love looking at it so much I would never use it. LOL!
If you need a great joke gift for a coworker or neighbor, this Lump Of Coal soap would be perfect.
This beautiful, soothing Lavender Soap comes from http://www.artfire.com/users/YourTime . I love the scent of lavender.
