This will be our first time at the Red Kite Craft Market, which is held in association with Little Chalfont’s monthly farmer’s market. That’s right – handmade crafts and local farm produce! We are hoping we can make this our regular market…
Denham Village Fayre
We had a stall here last May and it was HEAVING with visitors. Great atmosphere and a lovely quaint village setting! You can come by bus (331) or bring your car – but you won’t be able to park in the village itself.
Spring is almost with us and here at The Soap Cabin we have been looking at what events we can take part in this year. Great news – we’re going to be at Denham Village Fayre again on the end of May Bank Holiday Monday! It was sunny and very, very busy last year, so we are hoping for similar conditions this time around. I’ll also be attending a 4 day workshop, starting this weekend, learning everything there is to know (in more detail) about essential oils, which we use in our products and I’m extremely passionate about!
I recently bought a wool hat and scarf set, hand knitted by a crafter in Manchester because I’ve become more and more conscious of where (and how) my clothing and other products are made, and I wanted something unique.
Because I was her first ever customer, she sent me a free gift – a set of handmade 100% cotton face scrubbies! You basically use them to wash your face or remove makeup. The beauty of them is that they’re washable, so you can rinse, dry and use again! In terms of makeup removal, they’re so much better for the environment than using disposable face wipes.
So, I got in touch with the crafter to explain a bit about The Soap Cabin and place an order for some more. We’re very excited to say that we’ll have these handmade British products on our stall and on our online shop to purchase!
We have now done all our Christmas Fairs for the year! On Friday evening we had a stall at the very festive Carols on the Green and Christmas Market in Stoke Poges, South Bucks. It had been chucking it down with rain most of the day, so we were very fortunate to have dry weather for the event in the evening!
It was really well supported by the villagers and the choir leading the carols were excellent. There was a Santa procession, reindeer, barbecue and bar to keep everyone entertained. We were really glad to be part of such a nice event!
