Hey!

Two cool things: a woman showed up at my booth today, and announced “I came down here just to buy some soap from you!” That was awesome! She had previously purchased two bars, decided it was the best thing ever (which, of course, it is!) and so she had to buy some more. I just LOVE IT when that happens.

The other cool thing was this very elderly woman (DH put her at 80 or more) who decided she HAD to have some of my chocolate lip balm (a new thing, just introduced today). Her younger companion (who wasn’t there when the woman initially sniffed the balm) was like, “It’s chocolate scented. Are you SURE that’s what you want?” The woman was quite sure, and seemed very happy with her purchase. What, did the younger woman think I’m a deceiver of old ladies?? Sheesh. But it was soo cool, we don’t often get very elderly customers, and I just love to see them out and about.

Sales were low. If they don’t pick up soon, I may have to start thinking of either seriously pursuing wholesale customers (a distasteful idea, unless I can find some awesome boutiques or spas interested in my soap) or else just getting out of the soapmaking business. I really wanted this to work, so I’m rather depressed about the whole thing.
