What do you do when it's no longer crafting season?

I feel at a bit of a loss at the moment now that the two shows are over. I know I was chomping at the bit to have them over with but that was only with the provision that I sold off every last Christmas soap I made. The preparations leading up to the shows, the lack of sleep the late nights seemed at the time a chore, but they were also somewhat of an adrenaline rush. Now I'm having to clean things up, figure out which soaps to give as presents to friends and work on the paperwork side of things which is a bit boring by comparison.

I still have one more possible lead, that is my hairstylist. I went in for a cut today and to drop off a basket of soaps at her salon to see if her other customers might be interested. Like me, she was more interested in the basket the soaps came in than the contents. So fingers crossed, she will give me a good order by the end of the week.


  1. That's a great way to get your products out! Hoping you'll get an order!

    After Craft Fair season- I always start planning for the next year. I always say I'm going to do this or that- and the months fly and sometimes it doesn't happen :(

    With the New Year in site I'll have some goals for the biz, etc.

    Happy Holidays!

  2. I hope your hairdresser will help introduce your soaps to some of her clients! :)

    And Carrie has more great ideas, as usual!

  3. Thank you Carrie, I'm hoping to get some orders as well. Are you getting ready for next year by introducing new product lines or finding new places to introduce your products?

    Me too Teresa! I'm hoping to get some new customers out of her, esp since it's holiday season and everyone needs stocking stuffers. Carrie has wonderful ideas, and I'm glad she's willing to share her thoughts.
