Lake Wales - Have you ever watched one of those Hallmark movies in which the main character is a beautiful lady who also happens to run her own small-town small business? Well, guess what? While visiting Lake Wales' Farmers Market, I got to meet Lake Wales' own real-life Hallmark small-town business owner. Meet Donna Whetsell-Cerrone, from RCDC Essentials Artisan Soap.

   Since establishing her business in 2016, Donna has been creating hand-made artisan soaps made simply with only carefully sourced, premium-grade, organic & natural ingredients. But her products don't only include soaps... she also offers a RCDC Essentials Bath & Body Collection, which is her line of Luxury Artisans Bath & Body products. All of Donna's handcrafted bath products are made simply with only the finest 100% pure, natural and sustainable ingredients that are carefully and responsibly sourced. She believes in keeping her products green, proudly cruelty-free, and never tested on animals.

   Because all of her bath products are handcrafted, made to order, and painstakingly inspected, the love she shares in her creations are never rushed.

   When we met Donna, she was accompanied by her husband Rob and her cousin Morris. Rob, a retired Navy Veterans is the perfect addition to Donna's business. He not only serves as her "personal assistant," but he also acts as Donna's publicists. You don't believe me? Ask Rob about Donna's love for her business and he will go on and on about how much Donna loves what she does. He was actually the one who told us how much Donna loves Hallmark movies and that her dream has always been to create a small-business just like the ones she sees in those movies. Well, guess what? She did it, and she is killing it!

   We invite you to stop by the Lake Wales' Farmers Market every 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month from 8-1, so you can take a look at all the products that Donna has to offer. I, personally, bought two products... the Wild Summer Berries Body Mist and the Wild Summer Berries artisan soap. Even my husband bought a product... the Driftwood artisan soap. Give Donna's hand-made products a try. I promise you.. you won't be disappointed!
