I have a secret. I have spent the summer making the paperwork so that I could sell my soap. In the EU it is not that simple because the production of cosmetics is under licence. I had to find a safety assessor and then the government officials needed to judge if she was qualified or not. Everything turned out ok and I now have a licence!
I had my first market sale last weekend and another on Thursday. They were little community markets that had small sections for crafts. At the first market there were only three of us at the crafts section. At the second market, there were about dozen or so. Yes, that is me in the picture wearing a down jacket in August!! Oh my, I really have the highest respect to people who do markets every weekend. It was really really cold.
During those two days I sold about 150 bars of soap. I don't have the experience to judge if that was a good or a poor result but it was nice to see so many people interested in my soaps. Anyhow it was fun to meet different people and other sellers who were really friendly and helpful.
