Burlap & Twine (Hamilton Independent Business) Bath Bombs

Burlap & Twine Bath Bombs - All Types

I love supporting local businesses so am a big fan of Burlap & Twine.  It is near downtown so I can easily grab some bath bombs or other beauty goodies without a special trip to the mall.  They recently celebrated four years in Hamilton and bath bombs were half price, just $3 so I stopped by to stock up.  Yeah, goodbye no-buy.
