I went in and immediately saw this place as something special. The founder and owner, Vivian Dritsas runs the shop. Her friendly manner and spunky personality immediately draw you in, peaking your curiosity about her products. She informed me that while the shop in Astoria is there for locals to peruse and shop at, the majority of her business takes place virtually through internet orders.
Vivian's earth friendly products are definitely worth bragging about--delicious smelling soy candles ($8), buttery-soft lip balm ($5), organic spa shower gel ($16) but of course the main show-stopper is her handmade soap made with minerals from the Dead Sea ($6-$10.50). From Egyptian Geranium to Mild Lavender and even soap that cures stinky feet, the Little Soap Shop satisfies your every soap need.
Take a walk over and smell the scents coming out of this sensational "soaperie."
