We are so grateful to have built a network of incredible retailers across the United States. So many of our customers first encounter our all-natural products in these shops and we thought it time to introduce them to you. Our first retailer is The Ballog, an artisans market located in Serenbe Farms, close to Atlanta, Georgia. We asked Kelsey Edwards to tell us a little bit about this lovely shop.
How did you start your business and what do you primarily sell?
The Ballog started as an artisan’s night market. We hosted our event on an empty outdoor lot and filled it with string lights, local artists, a food truck and DJ. The event was a success and we had a great response from the community, so when a boutique in town closed the community asked us to turn the night market concept into a brick and mortar – and here we are! We sell curated home goods, local art, and unique gifts for men, women, and children – all with an emphasis on ethically sourced or American made products.
Tell us about your area and some fun things to do nearby.
Our shop is located in Serenbe Farms – a sustainable living community south of Atlanta. The community was built around an organic farm with a great emphasis on health & wellness, education and the arts, so it is a very unique place with all kinds of creative people living here or visiting for a nice retreat.
What’s your favorite thing about running your own shop?
We love finding new artisans and vendors to represent. It is very important to us to know where our product comes from, and we really enjoy sharing the stories of all the makers we carry.
Do you sell other natural products? What are some that you’d recommend? We believe very strongly in the use of natural products and carry a variety. We carry some natural body washes, lotions, oils, body scrubs and candles. Our Sallyeander bar soaps are some of our most popular items, people are always coming in and commenting on how great they make the shop smell. The No-Bite Me is another bestseller – we have had a number of repeat customers for this particular item. We personally love the Rescue Me – you can use it for anything. Being in the South – it is perfect for bug bites!
What is your favorite thing about SallyeAnder products?
There are so many things we love about Sallyeander. Aside from it smelling amazing and working well – we love the fact that is all natural, safe to use and made in America – all things we wholeheartedly believe in!
