Selling Success at Fairs and Public Markets
Since I took my very first melt and pour soap making class in 2002, I briefly thought about selling and only decided to teach classes. But next month I decided to have a table at this year's Deborah's Palm Holiday Bizarre. But instead of creating products to sell I am going to have a make and take potpourri table. It has been a lot of planning since I signed up last month and I am hoping it will be a success. But if you are planning to sell at fair, public markets or farmer's markets, you may want to read this posting from The Soap Queen titled Selling Success at Fairs and Public Markets.
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.
