Things That Work

Natural Home and Body Care

Our Story

TTW logo

Things That Work was officially launched in April 2014 and has continued to develop to meet the basic needs of families wanting to make a difference. Lisa is always researching more solutions that work in a simple, yet natural way. It is our goal to steer clear of controversial ingredients such as Fluoride, Aluminum, Deet, Chlorine Bleach, Formaldehyde, and Artificial Fragrances and Parabens, by replacing these with tried and true options our grandparents would have used and trusted. 


Of equal importance to TTW is supporting local business with our own, so we partner with those that invest in the Berkshires or their own local community. In sourcing ingredients or supplies, donating table fees or product, or providing our wares as inventory to other stores, we support over 20 local businesses, farms, community organizations and artisans throughout the year. 


As part of our purpose to be an educational source, so you will also find us at Berkshire farmer's markets, fairs and festivals speaking about natural alternatives and demonstrating hand arts such as processing fleece, spinning local varieties of wool, needle felting, crocheting, or hand tacking felted fleece rugs. 


We also feel it is important to give back, so each year we pick a charity or family of charities to support from a portion of the proceeds of Harvest Yarns and Fiber sales. 


Our monthly newsletter features new formulations, seasonal offerings, tips and tricks, unadvertised specials, partner news and highlights of Berkshire gems we find in our travels. We encourage you to sign up on our News tab to stay updated on new events important to you; it's a given that we promise not to sell or share your information with anyone. 


We encourage you to order from our new Square store with free local delivery, then make sure you follow us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumbler, and Twitter.
