It has been one heck of a year this year, but we just wanted to say thank you for continuing to buy our goodies throughout the pandemic, and for following and liking our social media posts.
We’ve been doing this Soap Cabin thing for a long time now, and have decided to take a longer Christmas break than usual from making and selling (and all the other stuff!), and so we’ll be closed until the end of January. As well as a break, it also gives us a bit of time to think about what we want to do next. We started out in 2011 by selling our soaps at boutique fairs and craft markets, and this is our absolute favourite thing.
This year we would have been at our regular monthly gig, the Red Kite Craft Market in Little Chalfont, along with bigger annual events like Denham Village Fayre, Croxley Revels, and many of the Christmas fairs that usually take place. As you’re aware, all of these types of events were all cancelled due to the pandemic, but we really hope that these events can come back next year. It’s all a bit unknown at the moment, but there is the great news of the vaccine that is being administered as we speak. Obviously it will take time, but it will be so nice to see people at our stall once again! I’m going to have a think about how we do testers and samples at our table because it won’t be a good idea for lots of hands to be handling soap testers!
Here’s to a much better and more positive 2021 full of fun events and hopefully see you in person soon… Happy New Year! x
Hope you’re having a great summer!
Apologies if you were expecting to find us at the Chorleywood Village Day in July. In the end we had to cancel because we just needed a break. However, fear not – we will be in Chorleywood later in the year as we are going to have a stall at St Clement Danes School Christmas Fayre on 1st December! The event usually gets around 1,000 visitors and one particular highlight is the BBQ; quite a nice thing to have in the Winter 🙂
Hey! Hope you are having a great spring time (or is it still winter?!).
We have some exciting things coming up this Summer – we’ll be selling our tropical products at the following local events:
Mon 28th May – Denham Village Fayre (South Bucks)
Sat 16th June – Chalfont Crafty Collective Summer Market (Chalfont St Peter, South Bucks)
Sat 14th July – Chorleywood Village Day (Herts)
Hope to see you at one (or all) of them. And even greater news, we can now accept payment on the stall by card, including contactless payment – yay! So no need to run off to find a cashpoint ????
Last night I managed to take part in the chat with the @Craftblogclub on Twitter, having participated earlier in the year, but more recently realising that I had just missed it! I actually came across it having met one of the bloggers/makers through a craft market that we used to do.
Last night we were discussing our next projects and what Christmas fairs (if any) we are doing. Obviously we’re doing 2 in Chalfont St Peter and Chorleywood, on a reduced schedule due to impending house move!
There are lots of these creative groups on Twitter now, like Folksyhour and Handmadehour. Its a great way to share information, ideas and to even arrange crafty meet ups. I’ll have to see if I can take part in either of those, maybe as a one off.
