"I know. I bought some from you at the Grant Park Festival. You make great stuff."
That was a pretty great feeling. Then as I was sitting in my booth at the Inman Park Festival this last Saturday, a woman came up to me urgently and with purpose, says
"YOU make the best soap! I was looking for you. I bought a bunch from you at the Candler Park Festival."
Sweet! She got four bars from me again. I think if I kept on with the festival circuit, I could definitely get a lot of repeat business. The festivals, though rewarding, are a LOT of work. Long days, physically exhausting, mentally draining... I spent all of Monday recovering and trying to re-organize my soap room. I have a whole other blog to write about day two with the rain, with pictures and all, but I've just poured the lye for a batch of Black Raspberry and it's time to start melting oils now if I'm going to make it to my bike ride in about an hour and a half.
