Where to find Tubby Tabby Soaps

People ask us all the time where we’re located, and the honest answer is that we’re still running this little business out of our home studio! But we do sometimes participate in markets and we stock our products in various brick-and-mortar stores. So if you’d like to shop our products in-person, you’re in the right place! Here are the good folks who are hosting our products in the foreseeable future.

If you’re located in Ottawa and you’d like an in-person shopping experience on your own schedule, we recommend checking out the Milk Shop in the Byward Market, Rideau Rollers in Centretown, or Beacon Hill Craft Club in the east end. (You can also get a limited edition collaboration at Little Jo Berry’s.)

Milk Shop in the Byward Market

As of August of 2023, we’re proud to announce that you can get our full Pride Flag and seasonal lines of soaps at the Milk Shop in the Byward Market! Located at 45 William Street in downtown Ottawa, you can’t get any more central than that! Check out this wonderfully queer-friendly and supportive space that has all sorts of goodies from small handmade business owners like us, and shop small and local all at once!

Rideau Rollers in Centretown

As of December 2023, you can find a wide range of our soaps at the Rideau Rollers shop at 787 1/2 Somerset West in Ottawa! This lovely, queer-owned business is a great hub for those looking for rollerskating gear and they now have a section where they feature small, locally-owned businesses like Tubby Tabby Soaps! Because let’s face it; we never met a derby pal who didn’t need a good wash after a match!

Beacon Hill Craft Club in the east end of Ottawa

Now you can get a selection of our soaps at the Beacon Hill Craft Club on Montreal Road! Located in the plaza at 2200 Montreal Road in the east end, you can find the BHCC at the very corner of the strip mall where the two sides meet (in the “V”). They have a selection of our fun and seasonal soaps, so be sure to give them a visit particularly when you’re looking for a fun gift! To find the soaps, simply pass the front desk and find the little shop behind it, where you’ll see our goodies on the shelves.

Little Jo Berry’s in Hintonburg

Talk about a pillar of the local queer community! This lovely, small business owner, Jo, was kind enough to dream up a soap for us to make, so we did! Our collaboration (By the Slice) is available at the Little Jo Berry’s storefront at 1305 Wellington Street West in Hintonburg. It’s the only soap by us that they carry, but like…it’s rad enough on its own! Trust us!
