Hey ATC! Hope you're well!<quoted text>
Hi Chalk lover, hope you are well.
Well I am in the UK now and my search for clay or chalk is not going well! I had really hoped to place a big order of original Mavu as well as try other clays, but Mavu Seller doesn't have the stock. I have had no luck so far either in finding any clay chunks in the area I am in. One area I visited I got excited when I spotted a shop selling African things but the lady behind the counter hadn't even heard of eating clay she said. So disappointing.
Thanks again for your kind offer to meet up, but I am down south in Dorset and see that you are in Birmingham so probably not feasible. I was wondering, if you see this in time, if you would be willing to sell me some of the chalks (I like hard ones) and/or clays from your collection - like put together a variety pack lol! Can you let me know? You can contact me here and on email firstname.lastname@example.org
I wish there was a clay shop that I could go into openly selling all sorts of clays that people could sample. I am still trying to find the perfect clay for me - original Mavu is close, but still not perfect I have to say. I would like to have a clay that is very earthy, doesn't stick to teeth and gums, and is a bit gritty. I also would like this clay to be natural and not moulded. Does anyone have any suggestions? In particular UK ladies?
I have actually grown to like the soil cakes which is probably what I was expecting anyway.
I know what you mean about being disappointed in not finding anything in the UK, it takes a lot of courage to approach shop keepers too I've been there and felt the disappointment.
On a better note soul Sista is back up and running and I have previously brought a batch of unmoulded clay from her. They come as chunks are crunchy after baking but very smooth at the same time. She emailed me just yesterday telling me that she is still selling! I hope this helps!
