NEW PRODUCTS AT SHEABUTTER COTTAGE

Been such a long time since I posted on this blog.  So many things have happened since my last post.

* Launched Sheabutter Cottage in Ghana last year [June 2013]
* Won a GUBA award [November 2013]
etc, etc.


Why not join us via the social media platforms Instagram, FaceBook  to keep up with what is happening at the "cottage".  You can also join us on our Sheabutter Cottage - Ghana fanpage [a bit quiet at the moment] where we will announce our next Sankofa Day event.

Anyway, just returned from Ghana with some new customised/handcrafted products :






We look forward to serving you online/in store

SANKOFA DAY : GHANA

Been quite busy lately in between attending events, packing orders and preparing for our Sankofa Day in Ghana.  
Yes, it is almost time and due to overwhelming response after we sold out of the first 2 sets of tickets, we have decided to make this an open day. All those with tickets are entitled to a FREE swag bag.

Keeping fingers crossed that there is no rain and no power failure.

Bring a friend along not forgetting your purse or wallet and let us have a chat.



I am really looking forward to this and I hope you are too

Best wishes
