Hi everyone, I just joined the Atlanta group and am looking forward to connecting with all of you. I am a soap and candle maker, and I live in Lawrenceville. I am in a bit of a dilemma right now. I am trying to get my business license. The city won't allow me to make soap in my home so I am looking to lease something with a very conservative price :) of course since I am just starting out. I work full time and can only make soap on the weekends. My job is going to end in December, so I am preparing to be full time with my business Jan. 2015. If you happen to know of some place even a partial space to share in a warehouse...could you please let me know. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and Happy Friday! Tara Lee

Hello ATL! 
My name is Carrie and I am new to this group and to IBN as well. I live in Bonita Springs, FL but have a place in GA; so I visit frequently and I would love to attend any upcoming group meetings etc.

Hi gang: Wanted to invite you to a free teleclass. Create Your Own Mobile Beauty Business (http://mobilebeauty.eventbrite.com).

I think it's great for product manufacturers because this represents a growing, nontraditional channel for getting your products in the hands of professional estheticians, massage therapists, etc. as well as new retail customers!

Hope you can join in!

Hey everyone!  I am actually hosting the ATL Spark & Hustle event this June and want you all to sign up and attend!  I have known Tory for years and have spoken at her event a few times in various cities on the subject of how to prepare your product for selling to major retailers - among other subjects.  If anyone wants, I can send you all a discount code to attend the event since I am the host so just let me know ok?  I also would love to meet up with you all to say hey being that I am also an IBN member and a good buddy of Donna's!!

Thanks!! Jim

Hi Ricci, I'd love to meet up; unfortnately, I'm on hospital bedrest right now. I am very interested in homemade products but want to understand the profitabilty. I will be the sole investor. I've been looking on this site but it's hard to find answers to those questions.

Hi Atlanta Group - Anyone game for getting together in Dec or Jan?

Comment by Toni V. Martin on May 24, 2012 at 1:18pm

Perfect! I knew I came to the right place, Ricci!

Toni - Let's get together on your event.  Yes, there are numerous formulators in Atlanta (I'm one).  I have connections in the Atlanta area with other cosmetic chemists, fragrance formulators, flavor formulators, etc.  Write or call me and we can discuss further.  I know there are others interested in the topic as well.

Hi all, got a question!

I am planning an event around creating your own line of cosmetic products for skin care specialists. I wondered if there is a cosmetic chemist, formulation or private label company in metro Atlanta that you guys know of? I would like them to come speak.


I know this is the Indie board, but this event is for people who know what they want but don't want to/can't formulate it themselves. Thanks a bunch!!

Hi Atlanta Indie Group - I sent a message earlier to the group, but don't see it posted.  I can most likely attend the Spark & Hustle at the Cobb Galleria on June 15th.  Let me know if you can attend and we can make plans to meet.
