November update:

Hello Moon Friends,

  Missing everyone and we sincerely hope you are doing well.

Regarding our business and building, we have changed our plan several times since the fire happened and we are just now realizing the path we may have to take. We did have replacement value insurance on the building, however it is not enough to rebuild. We have received only partial inventory money. We have not received any money yet from the third floor personal policy. We have business interruption money that is currently behind and there is no information as to when they plan to cut the next check. With all of these obstacle's in the way we are finally absorbing the fact we may need to sell the property and possibly open at a different location. The property taxes and many ongoing business expenses remain even though we have no income from sales. We cannot move forward until we have all of the settlements due to us. While we expect everything will eventually move forward, we are told this process can take up to two years. We are not asking for money or a Go Fund Me as we think eventually this should pan out. In the mean time, we continue to receive so many supportive emails and we really appreciate all the kind words. We have over 4000 on our newsletter list and we are really thankful for our True Moon Friends. 

   At this point it may be a possibility next year to reopen with a smaller line of products at a different location - but this all depends on many factors. I especially hope to make my Glow line along with many other top sellers. We have no equipment, supplies, boxes, labels, tins so I really don't know how far I will get. Labels, labels, labels are a huge problem as you have heard me whine about too many times I'm sure. All labels are destroyed in the fire. Bottles and tins, I know this sounds like a broken recording, but the variables remain the same and the resources are not here yet.


In the last few years we had made some major strides with growing our business and we were fortunate to have only one single down month during the entire pandemic. We were definitely on the upswing and our plan as I have previously explained was to one day sell Moon River Soap Company when Carlos reached his mid to late sixties. Our established soap and skin care business would be sold and handed off complete with national accounts, our logos, branding, recipes, trade marks, equipment, trade secrets, etc. We were hoping to find just the right person to match with our loyal Moon Friends.


We end up going circles on almost any day, we have changed plans many times and we will be able to move forward once we have received all settlements.


We have faith in God and we trust His plan. We feel safe in our church and community. We miss our Moon Friends and we wish you a warm winter.
