Things That Work

  Natural Home and Body Care

Our Story

Starting as a blog to document stuff that worked, Things That Work was born in 2014. Along the way, we discovered natural recipes for cleaners, toiletries & beauty products that helped our family tackle allergies & sensitivities, getting on the road to health away from controversial ingredients that were commonplace on our shelves. This turned into a passion to help others make the easy switch to natural alternatives, and enjoy peace of mind as they care for their home, family & body. This love for "old-fashioned natural" developed further into a branch of hand arts including Harvest Yarns & Fiber and Harvest Art Silks and Dyes, where we uncover creativity in one on one and group classes in hand arts.  
We offer affordable natural options to the Berkshires and beyond and we get out into the community often at markets and fairs, so we can meet you, talk about your naturaliving goals and tweak our offerings to your needs. Many of our creations were inspired by you, our customer.
