Soapy's Guide To St. Louis

Soapy as a puppy at Herbaria

Let Soapy Be Your Concierge

Soapy followed her nose to our door in 2011. Lucky us! With her tail-wagging welcomes, she’s our Customer Service Specialist.

Locations are arranged from downtown westward, then east into Illinois, then further afield in Missouri.

Photos link to the location's website for further information.
