Yesterday I had my second fair of the season. I set my soaps up inside and got to sit next to a woman selling fudge—YUM! While she sold almost all her stock, I did okay. There was a lot of traffic, but I just don’t think it was the right venue for selling my soap. Most people were there for the giant Tag Sale. I think if it was more of a craft fair, there would have been more people looking for crafty items. But, overall, I sold some soaps and made some bucks.
I don’t have any other fairs lined up until December, which is fine with me. It’s a lot of work getting prepared and lugging all the stuff to set up and sitting around all day. I enjoy it, but back-to-back weekends took it’s toll on me pyhsically. If I learned anything it’s my target market. Also, people really like lavender scented soaps; I sold all but one. Gotta stock up on Lavender for the future.
