From a press release:

The Post Home and Body in downtown Scranton will be celebrating its second birthday this Friday, Oct. 7 from 5 p.m.-9 p.m. by serving cake and drinks crafted from drink mixers by Cocktail Crate. The Gypsyjane Pop Up Vintage Shop will be featured for the evening.

The Post Home and Body (344 Adams Ave., Unit 2, Scranton) is a brick and mortar shop in downtown Scranton. Its mission is to provide customers with quality handcrafted goods, priding themselves on supporting local and carrying over 30 handcrafted businesses from around the Northeast. The shop’s wide variety of products include soaps, lotions, men’s grooming products, local honey and food items, stationary, pottery, jewelry, and dog treats.

Each month, The Post offers maker’s sessions to teach others how to craft natural products. Customers are also able to purchase raw materials by the ounce to make products at home.

Owner Ashley Paschke is an avid maker who loves working with her hands and scouring old estates for treasures. Her venture in all-natural products began four years ago when she was introduced to essential oils and homemade soaps. After starting Reclaimed A Candle Company, her interest in all-natural products began to grow. This little soy candle company helped drive her towards a larger dream. She created a brand that includes natural products that are safe for the body and whole family.

Paschke is also active in the local small business community. She is a founding member of the Boss Ladies of NEPA and regularly attends Scranton Tomorrow meetings while serving on their holiday planning committee.
