After many hours of prep work for the Hadassah Professional Craft Fair this coming weekend, I just had to take a break and get back to the business of handmade. The challenge with art and handcrafted goods is taking the time to properly present your wares. Most artists will tell you, they prefer the artistic process not the sales side.
The key is to approach your goods from the customer’s point of view. If you are passionate about your work, the merchandising will come.
Today’s goal was to try out the shredded loofah and apricot seed powder in a light goat’s milk soap. Evelyn’s Fresh Bamboo Delight hits all the right buttons. It is a gorgeous, light, fresh blend of Fresh Bamboo Fragrance Oil, Grapefruit, Cedarwood Virginia and Bergamot essential oils. I mixed the shredded loofah directly into the soap and sprinkled the apricot seed along the top.
