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!
Sorry we haven’t posted in a while…we’ve been busy changing all our labelling and making lots of products for the upcoming Christmas events. We’re really excited now that we’ve been able to get everything looking a bit more uniform in terms of logo and branding. You may have noticed that we’ve made a few tweaks to our website too.
Our first event is a Christmas Fair on Saturday 10th November at Harefield Community Centre, which is right on our doorstep! It will be great to be part of a community event and we hope local people will get to know us and become regular customers.
Then we’ll be at York House Prep School in Sarratt for their Christmas Shopping Evening on Wednesday 21st November for a fun filled evening. We took part 2 years ago and it was a great event. We even won a bottle of wine in the raffle!
Our third event will be St Clement Danes School Christmas Fair on 1st December in Chorleywood, followed by Carols on the Green in Stoke Poges in Bucks on the evening of Friday 7th December.
All details are on our website – hope you can join us!
