We had a fantastic time today at the Spring Fling!
That’s me back there, trying to get everything all organized before the show got up and running this morning. This was our first show since before Christmas, and we’d changed the way we do things quite a bit – instead of bringing dozens of pre-made lotions, shower gels, foaming liquid soaps, body mists, spa soaks, and perfume oils, we’ve started bringing the unscented product – which we make up in bulk anyway for efficiency’s sake – and fragrancing it to the customer’s specifications right on the spot. It worked like a charm today, so we’ll keep on doing it that way. No more wondering if we have the lotion you want, or if the person in line before you bought our last peppermint liquid soap. Bar soaps, solid perfumes, and lip balms we still have to finalize at home, but we try to bring a good variety!
Change in process notwithstanding, it was fantastic to get back in the swing of doing craft shows. We really did have a great time today, and can’t wait until our next show – we’re planning to be at Napawalla in Oxford later this month!
