Why Spicy Pinecone?
Some people are stumped by my business name. I don't have "Soap", "Bubble" or other bath-related terminology, so I do receive a lot of questions on the backstory. If you're interested... here it is!
My husband and I were at the Commissary a few years ago, when my middle son picked up a pinecone that had fallen in the parking lot. He held throughout the entire shopping trip, petting it, and holding it out to others while yelling enthusiastically, “LOOK AT MY SPICY PINECONE!” (He could not pronounce “spiky” for the longest time, so “spicy” it was.) The other shoppers would nod politely and nervously smile, then speed away in the other direction. By the end of the shopping trip, it was so absolutely ridiculous that I was giggling and snorting my way out of the store. For months, he was obsessed with pinecones. We’d go hunting them in the woods and he’d talk about his “spicy pinecone”… even my daughter and my oldest son picked up on his pinecone devotion. We had baskets of pinecones on the front porch and in all of my planters. I joked with my husband that “Spicy Pinecone” would be a great name for a band, but instead, I picked it for my business because it still makes me smile.
Thank you for stopping by my store!
