Beryl Coder, founder of Island Thyme Soap Company, has just launched a new seasonal subscription box service, featuring handmade products from some of Florida's most talented artisans. She calls the new venture "Package from Paradise."

And, if you're curious to know more about these talented artisans, you can Meet the Makers of these products on the Island Thyme website.
