Craftacular Vendor Spotlight: Poor & Pretty Bath Sweets and Body Treats

by Maggie Carr


Recent college grad Sami Jo Jensen turned her passion for frugal crafting into a successful business: Poor & Pretty Bath Sweets and Body Treats.

Poor & Pretty’s signature item is Cupcake Soap. Sure, it looks like a delectable treat you’d like to nosh on, but it’s 100% suds-inducing goodness. Sami packages bath “truffles” and whipped soap “frosting” in deliciously appropriate (and environmentally friendly!) containers.

All Poor & Pretty products are free of gross chemicals that gunk up your body and the environment — plus, they’re completely vegan!

Although you can find Poor & Pretty products on Etsy and in a number of boutiques in her home state of Connecticut, Sami will also be bringing her sweet treats to the BUST Magazine Craftacular at World Maker Faire! Check ‘em out on Saturday, September 29th from 10 am – 7 pm and Sunday, September 30th from 10 am – 6 pm.

 Also, don’t forget to check out Sami’s adorable blog!
