Nancy Boy

    Nancy Boy specializes in body, bath, and home products with no artificial scents. The products have no fancy packaging and the store does little advertising. If anything, the name of this store adds an easy-going flare to the no-nonsense sensibility of the products and services being offered. Starting out as an online store in 2001 by owner Jack Richards, Nancy Boy’s bath and body care lines are made locally in Berkeley and Sonoma County. Best known for their shaving creams, the shop also sells eco-friendly laundry soap, essential oil scented soy wax candles, facial toners, bubble baths, bath salts and scrubs. In the store there are a few vintage decorative items and furniture pieces along with well-curated gift sets, bath accessories, candle holders, teapots and a fine line of organic teas. Customer service is so good that much of Nancy Boy’s loyal clientele has been built up through word of mouth. Visit the Hayes Valley flagship store and experience it for yourself.Show lessRead more
