Enjoyed my day yesterday...

despite the awful rain and high winds! felt so glad that I was in the craft tent and not outside with my gazebo with  all the wind and rain blowing full pelt! The event wasn't as busy as expected still lots of people about but not so many as last Saturdays so got a chance to chat to customers about my products and just general chit chat..I did quite well considering and there was another soap lady there she didn't make anything herself she bought it in from an ex employer from L**H
I have met her before she's a nice lady but her soap looked and smelled very artificial I used to be a big fan of those products years back before I started making my own soap but then my opinions have changed ..big time
Anyway I was looking at her stuff and picked up a soap with sponge inside it very similar to those loofah soaps which are nice to look at and have never tried so can't comment  anyway she said I don't know how they do it how on earth do they get the sponge and loofah inside the soap I just though's not up to me to tell you( I have got a mean streak sometimes haha) but she should do her research if she is selling the stuff.. that's the real beauty of making your own products because we can talk forever about how we make them and exactly what goes into them..
Oh I also changed some of my packaging so didn't get annoyed with later x


  1. Oh, you're teasing us with no pics lol

    Sounds like you had a really good day and were totally in your comfort zone - I could talk to customers for ages as well, and if nothing else, it shows that we know our stuff and that our products are genuinely handmade, not bought in rubbish (though not all bought stuff is rubbish it has to be said, just most lol)

    Wishing you lots more good days to come xx

  2. Glad to hear that Thursday's show went well! Gosh, I know what you mean about the weather - I stick to indoor shows myself because you never know what the weather will be like here in Florida, especially in the summer where there's a 50% chance of rain nearly everyday. Can't wait to see pics of your new packaging! :)

  3. Thanks Polly and Jenny!
    Polly you hit the nail on the head I was in my comfort zone...I can imagine you like chatting too to customers
    Jenny I always think of Florida to be forever sunny was so surprised that it rains so much in the summer hope your fair was good and that you did well..

  4. Thanks, Edith. I had fun at my craft show even though sales were slow. My mom is usually my booth buddy, so it's nice to spend the day with her.
    Yeah, we get showers and thunderstorms pretty frequently during the summer here. You wouldn't think that would be the case in Florida - it is "The Sunshine State," after all. But as the heat and humidity build during the day, the clouds boil up and we get what we call "pop-up" storms and showers because they kinda appear out of nowhere. Unless it's a front or a tropical system, it's usually scattered and doesn't last long. We have a little joke around here: If you don't like the weather now, just wait ten minutes :)

  5. Getting annoyed with sniffers! hahahahahahahaha lawd, i go through that ever time..too funny, edith!
