Meet the Vendor: Seagrape Bath + Body
Who are you and what do you do?
Hi! I’m Maria, the owner and operator of Seagrape bath + body, a handmade artisanal skincare and home goods line operating out of Portland, OR.
What was your first memory of making something?
I began blending essential oils while I was in college and remember being completely blown away by the variation and depth I was able to achieve with just a handful. Once I began a collection there was no end in sight- and here I am 6 years later!
What do you love most about craft show vending?
I love meeting all the other talented and hardworking babes making their dreams come true. It’s inspiring and I always walk away with amazing purchases and trades.
Is this a full-time business for you?
Yes, Seagrape is my full-time baby. I was able to open up a retail location this year and have been working both production and the retail end of things out of the brick and mortar. I love that people are able to walk in and see the various stages of production while they shop the finished product.
Who’s your biggest fan?
My spouse is behind me 120%, and sometimes even comes to the shop after work to help be box and label product.
