Last weekend I participated in my first 2 craft fairs for the season. I had a very busy week leading up to them, getting everything wrapped and labelled and working on my display. In past years I had used a wide and tall wooden shelf along with my homemade styrofoam risers, but this year I wanted a more open display so I wouldn’t be struggling to see around it from behind the table.
This is what I came up with. It reminds me of a bakery display.
My daughter came along with me on Saturday and we took a few artsy shots of the products too
Below are the Oh Baby! Olive Oil & Goat Milk soaps. I like how they look like trays of cupcakes here
Last year my customers really liked being able to buy bundles of small sample bars to try out several scents, so I made more. These are made from extra parts of the loaf after the bars have been cut. They nearly sold out- I’ve only got a couple left.
These cupcake bath bombs have been a big hit. The trouble is…they are a real pain to make. The bubble bath icing on the tops is really fussy and unfortunately it’s been hit or miss with getting it to work right and dry out without flopping. I had success with these but I’m not sure I will keep making them.
I made more Lumps Of Coal soaps this year and on Sunday they completely sold out! I love they way they make people laugh:-) These were made from my usual cold process soap recipe, but I might make some more using melt and pour base today for another craft fair tomorrow.
I changed up the packaging for my Six pack O’ Suds Beer Soap gift pack this year. I love the look of the cotton bags and everything fits perfectly. I had several custom rubber stamps made by Teresa at Tickled Pink Paper & Ink for my soap bags. She is wonderful to work with and I love everything she has made for me!
And here’s a look at the six different beer soaps inside. I purchased the handmade crocheted wash cloths from a seller on Etsy. (I don’t crochet) Love handmade!
Tomorrow I’ll be participating in another craft fair at a local elementary school in South Surrey. Details are here for locals who might be interested.
