Got Enough There?


Last November, I participated in my first craft fair event and I must admit I was very nervous the days leading up to the event. I even considered backing out but my daughter persuaded me otherwise. That day I had so much fun, I could have done it all over again the very next day.

So, this year I have decided to take the plunge several more times. It's a great way to get your name out there while meeting wonderful vendors and customers alike. Plus the opportunity to talk about soap until the cows come home gives me the tinglys :)

So far, I have 2 definate upcoming events and 1 huge one that I've applied for.
I wonder how much soap I'll need to bring? In preparation, I've been soaping like a mad fool of late and the picture above shows the bars that are fully cured. I have entire rack of bars that are still curing.

Think I'll have enough?

*delurking* i participated in my 1st crat fair this weekend. (I make candles, bath salt, scrubs, M&P soap)
I truly enjoyedmyself, Got a chance to talk "wax" with the other candle vendors. It was an experience. I plan to register for more fairs in my area.

Wishing you luck @ your fairs :)
Nd you appear to be well on your way (stockwise) lol

Congratulations! I haven't yet tried for any fairs... I'm still intimidated by the idea... but your post has inspired me to seek out potential summer venues in my area!

I've never done a craft fair, so I can't speak from experience. But you sure seem prepared! Make sure to update on how it goes - I'd be interested.

Joanna Schmidt said...

Come to Florida and teach me your art of soapmaking!!

One more thing, I just snagged the last bar of Paradise. Thank goodness. I almost forgot to buy it before today. Please tell me the one left is accurate and I didn't miss it!

PS: Everything on your Etsy shop looks good enough to eat!

Two craft shows? And then one big one?

Hmm... Probably not! With the look of your soap, you'll probably be out before the show even starts! It looks soooo great! I wish I could smell them from here!

Robert said...

Great looking soaps. Good luck to you at your craft fairs.

Taleri said...

Good luck at the fairs. Actually, I think you need to make more. I'm sure people will take one look and be clamoring for them.:)
