I had a great day at my first farmer's market. I was so nervous previous to the day, but it all turned out great! I was well prepared and had plenty of stock (over 160 bars). I was nervous that I would either sell out, or that I would not have enough stock. Well, I sold about half, so it was a good day.

The Lake Oswego Farmer's market is lovely. It is located on a lake and is full of friendly shoppers, great food and wonderful music. My location was off to the side a bit, not prime retail space at all, but I did well considering. I was just so happy to be there. I have grand dreams of doing a weekly gig once I am more established, but I will take what I can for now. I am still a newbie and am loving growing my business every step of the way!

I have started making sea glass soap, which is a result of leftover soaps that I have scraps of. Soapers never waste a thing, so even if I have a batch that is too vibrant for my liking, I can still use it in a sea glass soap, and I love the results! I will bring them to my next market and hope they sell well.

I am taking a bit of a break from making the soap and am focusing on selling what I have. I really do enjoy every aspect of this endeavor. I have found my passion!


  1. The Sea Glass soap is stunning and I bet your littler helper just loves assisting you in soaping. :)

  2. Thank you for your inspiration. I am also a newbie and am not ready for a weekly gig. Great that you sold half your products!
