Tipsy Foods helps you create fabulous meals with their selection of pasta, BBQ and pizza sauces and hand picked spice blends. Barbara and Bob Yates are the husband and wife team behind the recipes that will delight your guests at weekend barbeques and elegant dinner parties.
Their wine-infused dressings make great marinades for lamb, beef and chicken. Or try the Roasted Garlic Chardonnay with fresh herbs and mayonnaise for a delicious garlicky spread for bread or crackers.
Pasta sauces come in flavors like Artichoke & Olive Oil Puttanesca, Fire-Roasted Portobello, Artichoke Fennel and more.
Even when you don’t have any dinner parties on the calendar, it’s always good to be able to whip up a fabulous meal with a minimum of effort.
And if you’re less than confident in the kitchen, Barbara and Bob are happy to tell you exactly how to use their pasta sauces and salad dressings. Stop by and say "Hi!", try free samples and have fun at the next Sugarloaf Crafts Festival!

Ocean Soaps Etc. was established in 1998 in Chesapeake, VA, in the farmhouse kitchen of Patricia Younce. Ocean Soaps Etc. creates a unique line of handcrafted artisan soaps and spa products, including sugar scrubs, body lotion and more. Every bar of soap is hand cut and beautifully wrapped using the finest ingredients such as shea butter, lavender, oatmeal, milk and honey to leave your skin soft and beautifully scented. Shea butter is an ultra-moisturizer that penetrates and revitalizes the skin and is regarded throughout the world for its many beneficial qualities. Younce’s individually made products are free of the many artificial ingredients that are often found in mass-produced soaps and lotions. Difficult to pronounce chemical ingredients are replaced with olive oil, palm oil, coconut oil, fresh herbs and other good-for-you ingredients.
“Our soap is creamy, long-lasting and nourishes the skin. You will love the way your skin feels and it smells great right down to the last little sliver.”
