Out of the Box

A fresh blog post, inspired by some recent car troubles and the kindness of strangers. Enjoy! :-)


drevaskincare.com by Avery Chenoweth Eva turned the key. Nothing. Her face went blank, as if some basic principle of the universe had failed to show up, like gravity. Her face registered the same astonishment as if she had dropped the car keys but they fell up. She cranked it again. Now, she looked at me, and we ha

Happy Friday, Everyone! :-)

We have a fresh blog post to help you get in the mood for the weekend: "You Are What You Love", by Avery Chenoweth. Enjoy! :-)


drevaskincare.com by Avery Chenoweth  When I write about Eva’s soaps, I sometimes call them “delicious,” which may seem like an oxymoron, or just moronic, depending. An aspect of freedom and love run wild in all creativity, and the master of delicious explorations, Anthony Bourdain, lived all of that. His

Allow me to introduce my brand-new business partner: Avery Chenoweth!
Avery is a man of many impressive talents, which include being an entrepreneur himself, and the author of a list of wonderful books and novels. His creative spark and enthusiasm have been a vital driver for me this summer. Avery joins me as partner in the business, as "Chief Storyteller", responsible for branding, marketing and communications.
How often do you get to work with a dear friend who also happens to be one of your all-time favorite authors??! I am thrilled to have Avery join me, and look forward to our adventures ahead :-)

[10/03/18]   Have you been wondering where I have been?? Well, look no further :-) We have been really, really busy these past few months, coming up with a whole new look, redesigning our packaging, and developing a new range of products. We will launch all the shiny new toys this week at Martha's Market at JPJ between Thursday, Oct 4 and Sunday, Oct 7. Come on by and say Hi!

All this would not have possible without help! I have had the immense pleasure and honor to add a business partner to my venture! Watch this space for a proper introduction :-)

[06/25/18]   Dear local friends of Little Luxuries:
We are working on several products for hair care and indulgent baths this summer, and would love to get your feedback on some prototypes!
If you would like to be a "Luxury Guinea Pig", and give us your comments: Please let us know asap! We unfortunately cannot ship the products in the current hot weather, so this is for pickup/local delivery only. Thanks! :-)

[05/26/18]   We will be at the C'ville Market in the morning, at G10. Looks like we'll have some really nice weather this weekend! :-)

[05/19/18]   C’ville Market this morning! Come on out, and bring your flippers ;-)

[04/28/18]   On the road bright and early for C’ville Market! 😀
After many requests, we have added our emulsified Sugar Scrub back to the product list. This new batch has a warm orange and cinnamon fragrance. Enjoy!

[04/23/18]   The new Natural Bug Repellent Spray and Poison Ivy Relief Soap were a real hit at the market this weekend! :-)

[04/20/18]   We are excited to introduce 2 brand-new products, ready for spring and summer: An All-Natural Bug Repellent Spray, and a Poison Ivy Relief Soap Bar!
Both new products will be available at our stand at the C'ville City Market again tomorrow, Saturday morning from 8 to 12.
See you there 🙂

[04/12/18]   Hello Everybody! Spring is finally in the air, and the Charlottesville City Market is back in season!
This year, Dr. King's Little Luxuries has scored a fixed place at the market: a Coop space that switches between fellow soap vendor "Grubby Girl" and us. So, we will be at the market (space G10) just about every other Saturday all the way into November.
This Saturday -during the TomTom Festival- is our first market day, and we should have beautiful weather to boot!
We have all your favorites, plus a new Whipped Shea Butter Massage and Body Balm.
Stroll on over, and say Hi! :-)

The Haven

As announced earlier, we delivered 75% of our 2017 profits in cash and supply donations to The Haven in Charlottesville yesterday.
If you are not already familiar with The Haven, check out their website. They do some wonderful work for the homeless and very poor in our region.
Thank you for all your support in 2017! ❤️

thehaven.org A day shelter and social resource center for the homeless and very poor in downtown Charlottesville, VA.

[12/23/17]   Come on out to the Charlottesville Holiday Market today, 8am to 1pm! Last market of the year, and your last chance to get our soaps as stocking stuffers!
Remember: we are donating 75% of our 2017 profits to causes that fight homelessness.

[12/15/17]   Dear Friends:
Today, we made the decision to donate 75% of every bit of profit made by Dr. King's Little Luxuries throughout 2017 to support causes that help the homeless.

Considering the sheer magnitude of poverty and homelessness in our society, this is, of course, a drop in the bucket. But one drop joined by many more can become a flood. We have to stop ignoring the problem!

[11/27/17]   Today, we were contacted by the Ashley Chapel Educational Center.
The administrator wrote ACEC "is an alternative school located in Rockingham, NC, that serves students in grades 7-12. These students are typically sent to Ashley Chapel because they exhibit behavior problems that make it difficult for them to be successful in the traditional school setting. The reality, however, is that most of the students we serve at Ashley Chapel have social, emotional, and/or mental health issues that drive their behaviors. One of these major issues is socioeconomic status. The students at our school live in some of the poorest communities, and often come from single-parent families and foster homes. For this reason, the faculty and staff of Ashley Chapel Educational Center do what we can to spread cheer to our students and our families during the holiday season. We try to provide a Christmas dinner and gifts to our students and their families each year."

A worthy cause indeed! So, needless to say, a box of soaps is on the way to North Carolina.

Do you have a favorite cause you solicit donations for?
Tell us about it, and we will select one organization from your suggestions to contribute some of our soaps to!
