I have been a bit busy for the last week or so getting things sorted out for my first foray into the world of soap selling! I took a stall at a small farmer’s market held in a local school once a month, so off we went at 8.15 this morning to set up the stall ready for the doors to open at 9am.
The first hour and a half were pretty slow and there weren’t that many people through the door, but after that it picked up and I actually did better than I expected.
I have to tell you a funny thing that happened, and I’m sure she won’t mind me mentioning it, but a lady came to the stall and said “Hello, I’m your chief lurker!” Turns out she has been following my blog and my Ravelry page for quite a while. We had been in touch once about my knit group but she has never managed to make it to a meeting. She was lovely and I’m so pleased she said hello! I feel like a celebrity now I have an official “stalker”, hee hee! (waves to Emer)
The other exciting news is that I can now officially declare The Soap Folk open!! The website is up and running, as of this afternoon, so if you are looking for some early Christmas presents there is a special offer on until the end of the month! I have built this website myself on one of those template sites, so if you do pop over there, please let me know if you experience any glitches.
