We thought we’d be doing the Chalfont Crafty Collective Spring Fair in Chalfont St Peter in March, but unfortunately the ladies were unable to secure a date at the church hall 😭 so the first one for that event will be 16th June, the Summer Market, which we will hopefully be doing… If we’ve not jetted off somewhere exotic!
Markets are such a great way to engage with people and to get them to try and smell our soaps and other goodies!
In the meantime we are exploring other opportunities and looking into perhaps selling on Etsy to expand our reach. Another thing will be to get a regular newsletter going!
It’s funny how you don’t see what’s right in front of you. In my last post I told you that the only product we use plastic packaging with are our soaps. Since posting I realised our gift/display boxes have plastic lids so you can see what is in them – doh! Anyway, our intention to reduce plastic remains!
In the meantime I have been very happy with our new The Soap Cabin stickers and business cards which are getting our logo out there. Our next job is to redesign our soap labels to include the logo.
We are looking into which events to sell at this year and will let you know here and on our website very soon 😀
Today is my first day of making soap in our new surroundings! After cleaning the kitchen thoroughly and nominating cupboards for storing supplies, I am ready to crack on with making Soap Cabin products again!
It’s always strange starting again somewhere new (at least we’re roughly in the same area), but it is also fun to set up your space how you want it. We have more kitchen worktop space compared to before, which is good and less restrictive.
Next job is to finish sorting out my new office/craft room! I used to have a lot of natural light and an amazing leafy view in the old place, which I miss a little, but it has definitely been a good move. Also a good opportunity for a clear out!
Over the weekend we made a few changes to our online shop and upgraded. I think it looks a bit smarter and hopefully more user-friendly.
Unfortunately, the categorisation function has broken! While we look into fixing it, we are employing the tag function at the top of the screen for selecting particular categories of products. Hopefully we’ll get this sorted soon. Not ideal in the run-up to Christmas!
