Ricky Week is the annual Rickmansworth Festival, which begins with a parade through Rickmansworth High Street and culminates in the 2 day Rickmansworth Canal Festival on the Grand Union Canal.

This year the canal festival began on the Saturday 16th May, which was also when we had May’s Little Fox Market. We knew that it would be hit or miss in terms of footfall, but I have to say it was particularly bad for sales! There was a good flow of people in the morning, many not seen before, but the afternoon was dire and we were on the coffees to keep going!

However, I was really pleased that we sold all three varieties of body oils to a customer, plus two body butters to another. I am really keen for people to try the oil and butter products because they always come back for more! I speak to so many people about eczema and sensitive skin, that it’s great to show them products that are natural and that help the symptoms.

Really hope next month is better!
