How Much Soap or Products Should You Bring to a Craft Show or Market
Earlier this month, I went to the Fremont Festival of the Arts. At this particular arts and wine festival there were about five different vendors selling soap from cold process to melt and pour. I have never thought of selling my soaps at a festival but many have and probably wonder what would be the correct amount to sell at a show. Well, there is no definite amount of product you should bring to a show. But what would be the best way to determine that? I would not know that but I found a posting by Erica of Bath Alchemy titled How Much Soap or Products You Should Bring to a Craft Show or Market.
I have a B.A. in Mass Communication and took my first melt and pour soapmaking class in 2002. Since then I got hooked making my own bath and products. I have taken various courses in Soapmaking (Melt & Pour, Cold Process, Hot Process), lotion making (lotions, creams, lotion sticks), bath products (bath salts, body scrubs), body products (lip balm, body butters, body balms, whipped butters) and more. Most of all of my classes were taught by Lori Nova of The Nova Studio in Point Richmond, Ca. I have taught courses since 2004 at various locations. I have worked as an Event Coordinator at Michaels Redwood City.
