Saturday 10th of May was another Little Fox Market at St Mary’s in Ricky, which was also the beginning of the annual Ricky Week! The market went very well for us, despite the April-style showers interspersed with beautiful sunshine and blue skies. It was also good to get some feedback from customers on our products, and chat to friends who popped by.
The stall didn’t look as amazing as I’d hoped because we were a little low on stock, having rushed to get our products into Rebel Pebble for opening day, but thankfully we did okay. Our body butters will be back in June…I promise!
Exciting news! The Soap Cabin now has a shelf in brand new shop REBEL PEBBLE in Watford High Street!
We are renting the shelf for 3 months initially to see how things go. The Parade end of the High Street (near the Pond) is now being redeveloped, so it should once again be a busy area, after having suffered the effects of a large shopping centre at the bottom end of the high street. Rebel Pebble is a shop for local, handmade crafts, with space downstairs where they will be holding regular workshops and artist exhibitions, something truly unique to Watford. We know some of the other crafters, having met them through Queens Road Summer Market and other such events.
Pop in and have a look! Rebel Pebble, 98 The Parade, High Street, Watford WD17 1AW
Sometimes we forget that our skin is a living, breathing organ and therefore it turns over and regularly sheds dead cells. We may notice this more in the winter when we get dry, flaky skin, so it is good to exfoliate regularly to reveal the new skin underneath! The Soap Cabin does three types of exfoliating soaps: Eucalyptus and Mango & Passionfruit scrub bars which both contain poppy seeds and a Sweet Orange & Patchouli scrub bar which contains pumice powder, which is a finer exfoliant. (You will probably be familiar with a pumice stone). Exfoliating also helps unclog pores and boost skin circulation. Follow your scrub with some of our lovely shea body butter which will moisturise and protect your skin with even better results!
On Saturday The Soap Cabin had a stall at the Little Fox Market, our original market(!) at the new venue of St Mary’s Church Centre, Rickmansworth. It was great to be back after a long absence and I have to say it was a really lovely day. We were indoors, but there were also some foody stalls outside and there were people browsing all day. We even had visits from friends and family, which makes the day even better (especially when they buy something)! When I got home I was actually exhausted from talking pretty much non-stop for 5 hours 🙂
Saturday was the debut for our Sea Kelp spa bar, which will be on the web shop shortly. This one divided opinion because of the seaweed aspect, but seaweed is great for drawing out impurities in the skin, and the addition of Rosemary and Lavender oils makes it relaxing and fragrant. One customer said it smelled like the Cornish coast – perfect!
Looking forward to our next stall at Little Fox on Saturday 10th May!
This Saturday (5th April 2014) we will have a stall at the Little Fox Market in Rickmansworth, which was the very first market we ever did once I was feeling brave enough to put my products out for public consumption! They have moved to a new venue, having been based at the Fox & Hounds pub garden near M&S in the High Street. It’s great because we now have the option of being indoors or outdoors, rather than just outdoors, and hopefully there will be a bit more footfall.
If you’re about, pop in and see us!
Little Fox Market, St Mary’s Church Centre, Church Street, Rickmansworth 10am-3pm
