These people get me.
For one, the Oklahoma Red Dirt soap was placed riiiiight next to the pickle soap. Oklahoma red dirt and pickles are pretty much my two favorite things. Especially the dirt. And the pickles.
For two, the Okie Crowe folks make beer soap (tallboy, oatmeal stout, pumpkin lager…the list goes on). And beer hand scrubs. And peanut butter beer dog treats, made from spent beer grain. Inventive!
For three, owner Kelli Groblewski’s husband was really nice to me when joy and happiness came out of my ears at him when I spotted what was inside of the Okie Crowe booth at the Sand Springs Herbal Affair. It’s a lot to handle when that happens, so I really appreciate his kindness and understanding.
You don’t have to wait until the next festival to check ‘em out. You can see and order Okie Crowe merch on their Etsy page, or you can go to one of these local retailers to see the array of Okie Crowe goodies.
That Oklahoma Red Dirt soap, by the way? I bought a bar of it (how’d you guess?), and let me tell you, it was almost a spiritual experience—I never knew that bathing with a bar of soap made of dirt could be like that. I mean, I’m a fifth-generation Oklahoman. Odds are that I’m made out of the same stuff that soap is. My great-great-grandma (b. 188-something, I.T.) washed red dirt out of her clothes with a washboard, and thanks to Kelli’s genius, I got to use it for a home-spa day. What? Yeah. Super cool.
Okie Crowe didn’t sponsor this post or compensate me in any way for writing it. I just find the stuff to be delightful.
