Posted by Angela @ farragio on Thursday, January 16, 2020, In : business 


circle of smiling people

Back in the day when mom & pop stores were more common, the store owner would welcome you with a friendly smile, often knew you by name, and was ready to help you find what you were looking for. Now in this age of internet, that personal touch isn't quite so easy to achieve.

The third Thursday of each quarter is National Get To Know Your Customers Day, and it's a helpful way for business owners and customers to stay connected. I'd love to learn a little something about you, so in honor...

Why Handmade Is Better

Posted by Angela @ farragio on Monday, July 29, 2019, In : business 


hands holding box

While there are exceptions to every rule, overall handmade is a much better alternative when you're looking for quality-made items. Here are just some of the reasons why:

1) The artisan(s) making the item personally cares about what they're making and will take the time to make sure it's made properly.

2) The artisan making the item also cares about their customers and wants them to feel that personal connection.

3) Buying handmade helps the community. According to Mental Floss, st...

Guest post by Desiree Heiser

So you may ask yourself what are the benefits from buying handmade products from a small business as opposed to a bigger corporation? Well, for one, you know exactly what the ingredient list is and don’t have to worry about putting harsh chemicals onto your face or body.

I prefer supporting small business owners and entrepreneurs when I can. The reason why is knowing what is going into the beauty products that I will be purchasing since I have sensitive...

Why Buy Handmade

Posted by Angela @ farragio on Wednesday, February 6, 2019, In : business 


hands in shape of heart

With a new year comes new opportunities to learn and grow. I'm having so much fun running farragio and am excited to continue learning and growing as I develop my business in the new year.

I was pondering this morning what it means to buy handmade. Sure, there are the economic aspects of it, but it goes deeper than that. Even as I make handmade items I also shop handmade because I like contributing to other artisans who are just as excited and having just as much fun honing their craft...

When I set out to develop my skin care products I wanted them to serve more than one purpose, which prompted the name Dualistic, but I'm excited to be rebranding them under the farragio umbrella. So now your skin care needs will be met with farragio All-Natural Skin Care products.

A little history . . .
