Spirit of Christmas aftermath

Well I got through it! 6 days of hard sell aided and abetted by Chris who is founder of  http://www.cardsfromafrica.co.uk/

It certainly helps to do these sort of things with a partner even if it is just to keep yourself sane after you have said the same thing about 500 times. One of our strategies for getting through this was to try giving our pitch in different accents but we didn’t last long . Chris made a lame attempt at Scottish and I started to laugh which was not very helpful so I decided that the ladies of Kensngton would not get the pleasure of my brummie accent, even if it is rather good.

Another suggestion from a friend was to take over the selling at someone else’s stand which in fact I had to do for a while, from the lady selling Alpaca – see photo.

Despite the hard work I did rather enjoy meeting the public and hearing the feedback and I also got some great tips about other fairs from some of the other traders. http://www.marasculpture.com/index.htm and http://www.alisongardiner.co.uk/ were two who were particularly helpful.

So what did I learn – well that there are are a lot of SW ladies that like Kenya, that the little handbag sized body butters and the bags made by the Masai ladies are both winners and that nearly everyone likes a bit of lavender…

That’s enough for now I think.

Handbag Sized Creams from Wild!

Well my word it has been a long time since I did this – almost forgotten how to do it.

Summer – that’s the reason.

ANYWAY…. What about these chubby little beauties? I am so excited about them. They are just perfect to fit into your handbag.  Pop one in your purse and never again will you be caught short in a moisturising emergency! Hands, feet, lips and face, the body butters can be used anywhere – this is the joy of natural skincare creams with such pure ingredients.

I may have been silent for a couple of months but I have not been idle – well only for a little, for a couple of weeks – I have been sorting out this new addition to the range and trying to get sorted for the run up to Christmas.

I realised that a smaller size of our creams was a good idea when lots and lots of our customers at the  Allergy and Free From show at Olympia were trying to march off with our testers.

So after much trialling  and searching for the perfect pot and making new labels and making more cream and and … we have these lovely little airless dispensers that keep the cream perfectly fresh and hygienic.

What’s not to love?
