Organic Garden Center Organic Garden Center is coming to Happy Valley!

Over the last few weeks, we’ve been hard at work preparing our new State College location. We were lucky enough to find a great space in a beautiful old barn two doors down from Happy Valley Brewing Company and a stone’s throw from downtown State College.

Talking with Shana of Bathvs

We’re always happy to see our tenants build and expand their business here. One example is Bathvs, a soap and body products company that started right here and is now getting some national recognition. Shana, the creator of Bathvs, was recently interviewed by the country’s leading soapmaker’s blog–there are some beautiful photos of her Pajama Factory studio and a nice mention of the creative community at the Pajama Factory!

Shana sells her soap both online and through retail locations, as well as at our own Farmers and Artisans Winter Market each Saturday from 10:00 to 2:00.

Interested in building your own dream with us? Let us help you make it happen!

Talking with Shana of Bathvs

A few weeks ago, we received a kind message on Facebook from Shana of Bathvs (pronounced Bath-us). Shana was the winner of our Facebook Photo of the Week in June of 2014, and explained to us how the win encouraged her to push forward with her business.

Organic Gardening Center goes to school

Brian and Marc from the Organic Garden Center

Brian and Marc from the Organic Garden Center were in Blossburg this week, teaching some very lucky students about hydroponics.

If you haven’t stopped in to the Organic Garden Center lately, drop by sometime—it’s a gorgeous shop staffed by people who are always willing to share their knowledge. (The OGC is at the corner of Rose and Park, on the first floor of the Pajama Factory.)

BATHVS

Shana Eichenberg is a tenant who’s used her space in the Pajama Factory to build her bath, body and hair care business from the ground up.

Bathvs, (pronounced ‘bathus’) is all made by hand in her 4th floor studio, where Shana formulates the recipes, produces each batch, packages and ships orders all over the world and works on marketing, both through Facebook, Etsy and now her shiny new website. (She also sells her products at Roots Hair Studio by Karen in building 6 of the factory!)

We’re happy and proud to have Shana and Bathvs as one of our many small businesses at the Pajama Factory—we can’t wait to see what *you* will do here!

Here’s her new site—go take a look!
