Today’s Maker Monday is extra special because we had the chance to catch up with Carla Foster of Carson Bryce Trading Company.
Fun fact: Carla was our first-ever artisan partner back in 2013 and we have carried her Atlanta Love, formerly named White Peach Vanilla, soap since. She creates some of the most divine smelling bath & body products.
Find out more about this lovely maker below.
1. Who is the inspiration behind "Carson Bryce Trading Company"?
Carson Bryce Trading Co. Is inspired by my infant son of the same name. Carson Bryce Johnson lived for 30 days. He was born premature. It remains the most traumatic event of my life. However, his life lives on in such a bigger way. Everything I do and make is in his honor.
2. How have your product creations helped you over the past several years?
Making products is a healing process for me. I feel my son encouraging me every step of the way. My process of creating is rooted in the love I have for him and my other son Chancellor Troy Johnson. Everything I make is rooted in love!!!!
3. What has been your all-time favorite type of product to make and why?
Hard to choose. So much of Carson Bryce Trading Company is also curating antiques and found goods for the home. I adore that as well. I love making soap and candles but I also live making sugar scrubs. Lip balms and body butter. Bath bombs i make with Chance. That's really fun!!!
4. What are some new scents/products we may see in 2022?
I recently debuted my healing energy and big money energy soaps. Omg!!! Divine I tell you. Divine!!! I am also working on the most scrumptious body butter evah! By Spring it will be done. Can't wait to share it!!!
