I just thought of something else that is not on my list that I always take... A little tin of coffee beans. It really helps when someone has smell 3 or more different blends. They can get a fresh start & smell more Smile.

Good one Sharon, I am finding that either I am taking to much soap or people have trouble smelling after 5 or 6 soaps..
I will go put it in my bag right now, nice fresh Coscto beans..

Congratulations Kelly!! That sounds like a great first show hope your second is even better!

That's a great list Bnk! I'll do my first farmer's market at the end of the month. Just selling candle tarts, warmers and room spray. If I have time I'll make some car fresheners. I can't sell soap cause it is a mini market and they have a soaper already. Now I need to figure out how to set up and try to keep people from stealing, this market is not in the greatest area.

Thank you Carol. Good for you on your first market. Ours is good, I always make sure if I can that things are full, refill spot after a purchase, that way if something were missing I might notice it quickly.

I'm gonna have a lot of candle tarts and I'm not sure how to display them and keep control over someone dropping them into a bag or purse, etc. I might just display the sample scents and keep the rest behind the table and pull them as they choose. The only thing with that is I know as a customer I really enjoy picking out my own stuff. Anyway , we'll see. Plus gotta be careful the darn things don't melt! It can be 80'here even in December! sunny

Wow...80 in December sounds awesome! Good luck at the market Carol. Let us know how it goes and how you decided to set it up. I hope it works out well for you and people don't pocket your items.
