Meet the Vendors

 

Brittanna English Lavender  is so excited to introduce the unique vendors who will be joining us at the Happy Valley Lavender Festival on June 30. These businesses represent some of our old favorites as well as some new friends. We think each will bring something special and complementary to the atmosphere at the farm. From hand made jewelry and home goods to locally grown flowers and plants to all sorts of sweet treats, and even relaxing massage, this crew will have something to tempt everyone. Check them out. Your mouth will be watering and your wallet tingling!

 

 

 

Come see us at Happy Valley Lavender Festival

If you follow Brittanna English Lavender on Facebook, you have seen posts about the upcoming Happy Valley Lavender Festival. This is the first festival that Brittany will be offering on her farm. Brittanna will be the hosting vendor!

Although we only intended to start small this year, we have been overwhelmed by the enormous response to the event thus far. Clearly the Treasure Valley wants more lavender! We hope to help provide it slowly, growing this event in years to come.

We expect a great time on June 30 celebrating all things lavender with fresh bundles, u-pick, live music, wand making classes, food trucks, hand-selected vendors, and, of course, Brittanna English Lavender products. It’s very possible that demand for fresh lavender will outpace supply this first year as Brittany’s 1200+ plants are still maturing. Come early if picking lavender is your priority, but come anytime between 9 am and 4 pm to enjoy a great day on the farm with plenty of food, drink, and shopping.

We haven’t been at the Nampa Farmers’ Market yet this season as the exploding interest in the festival has us scrambling to get ready. If you been missing us, be sure to mark your calendar for the Festival to shop our full product line and stock up.

We’ll see you on the farm!

Tea Time and other luxuries

After a long day of grading papers, wrangling kiddos, and hawking lavender products, nothing is as relaxing as climbing into bed and dipping lavender shortbread into a steaming cup of tea (in your favorite purple mug with Gilmore Girls playing on Netflix, of course). That’s exactly what I did tonight.

If that sounds good to you too, we’ve got you covered. Try our Tea
Time gift set. This kit includes our Lady Grey loose leaf tea blend, our lavender infused sugar, and a package of lavender shortbread for a special price of $15—everything you need to create a perfect bubble of relaxation (in which none of your small children can hang off of you…that part isn’t not guaranteed for the $15 though).

Back to school, back to the Market

School is starting up again, the weather is cooling down a bit, and we are heading back to the Nampa Farmers’ Market this weekend!  To celebrate the pending return of fall, we are introducing a new warm scent: lavender vanilla. Try any lavender vanilla product—body butter, bath salts, bath bombs, sugar scrub tubs and cubes—for $1 off each!

So spend your holiday weekend stocking up on everything you need to smooth out the back-to-school nerves. Whether you are the student or the parent of one, school can be stressful. Try calming the nerves of your little ones (or yours!) with some lavender linen spray on their pillows.

School comes with mixed emotions for me. On one hand, I’m delighted to get my lovely rugrats back into the classroom, so we can resume some semblance of a schedule. On the other hand, I teach college classes, so back to school means I’m back in the classroom as well. So it is with experience that I say BE KIND TO A TEACHER—and I don’t even teach second graders. I know my son’s second grade teacher will be getting a start-of-school thank you in the form of lavender products. I shudder at the thought of teaching second grade!

Or maybe, like me, you are the teacher. Treat yourself to bath bombs and Lady Grey tea to put yourself to sleep without those first-day-of-school teacher dreams. You deserve a bit of pampering too.

Even if the start of school means nothing to you, you might want to consider celebrating that fact as well. 🙂  Regardless, come welcome us back to the Market on Saturday and enjoy a discount.

 

 

Bathe more

It’s August already! I can’t believe school will be starting in a few short weeks. While we have been taking a little break from the Market, I’ve been savoring the last long days of summer. I was reading my MaryJanesFarm magazine (I take my farm girl status very seriously), and the topic of the issue was lollygagging—something, the issue argued, we don’t do enough of. I couldn’t agree more. Working long hours, consuming too much technology, and sleeping  too little are a way of life for most of us.Bath bombs

This musing inspired me to take a bath, not a quick, functional shower, but a long lazy bath. I sneaked down into my pantry and got into the Brittanna inventory (maybe you shouldn’t let me keep any at my house, Brittany!) to select the perfect thing. I decided on the bath bombs. The bath tea is my everyday favorite, but this was going to be a long, luxurious bath, and I wanted something exciting. I grabbed three magazines—sure one of them was a parenting magazine, but still—gave the baby to my husband, locked the door, ran the water, and dropped in a citrus lavender bath bomb.

I spent thirty minutes kid and phone free—except for taking this one little photo, of course—thinking about nothing in particular and wishing my dad would build me a tub caddy so I could keep my magazines dry. It was heavenly! Although a bath isn’t always the first summer treat that may come to mind, I highly recommend it. It’s simple, it’s affordable, and it’s way fewer calories than the Sonic lavender wildberry milkshakes I keep craving. Frankly, we Americans really ought to bathe more. Not that we aren’t impeccably clean as a country, but we really do need to slow it down and take some time to soak.

If you just can’t bring yourself to enjoy the treat of a cool summer bath, then find another way to make the most of the last days of summer. Maybe invite yourself over to your best friend’s pool (hint, hint, Brittany) and make a spa day of it with some cooling peppermint lavender foot scrub. Foot scrub

However, you like to pamper  yourself, you deserve it, and we can help. Pick up your favorite Brittanna bath product, grab a glass of wine—or a root beer float in my case—and soak your stress away. And when you finally have to get out of the tub because your kids are banging on the door and slipping their little fingers under it, be careful not to slip. Our products are very moisturizing and a concussion will really ruin the whole relaxation thing.
