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!
Our next Christmas event will be the York House School Festive Shopping Evening in Sarratt, Herts
I know, it seems too early to be talking about Christmas, but we are getting ourselves booked in for Christmas events, so we need to get cracking on making products so that we’re ready!
We’ve been busy this weekend ordering supplies and thinking about new products. We love love LOVE cocoa butter, and as we always want to bring you a Caribbean skincare experience, we want to use more Caribbean ingredients, like cocoa butter, so we are working on developing a new skin balm/salve which will include cocoa butter as the main ingredient.
A harder butter than shea butter, cocoa butter is full of skin-loving essential fatty acids, which are often lacking in dry, eczema-prone skin. It is fantastic for healing and fading scars and stretch narks, and smells like chocolate…Watch this space!
This evening I’ve been getting things together for the Chalfont Crafty Collective Christmas Market this coming Saturday, our first market in MONTHS!
I updated and printed off our sales ledgers, a photo of our Christmas stall layout, created a newsletter sign-up sheet, got out a pack of our new business cards.
I suddenly remembered that our jute banner is out of date as we’re no longer “made in Rickmansworth”, so I printed off and laminated our full colour logo. I do love to laminate ????
I really need to make sure we’re prepared as it’s been such a long time since our last fair.
