HP Soap is NOT rough and soft!


« on: September 24, 2011, 11:40:13 PM »

Well today's mart at Ruthin was terrible for me, particularly compared with last month; as we've had just the two months up on the square in the middle of town I've no idea which of the two is typical.

Couple of problems today - a big food festival in Mold, just over the "hill" which has been splased all over the press and the internet plus an "Open Doors" day and Ruthin is positively littered with ancient and interesting buildings - so groups of people were determinedly walking from one to the next with just a cursory glance at the stalls (some did OK though).

The upside was that a pair of ladies arrived at my stall and one exclaimed "I'm looking for you!"

She'd chased me round the internet - website, Folksy and FB (where I'd fortunately posted that I'd be at Ruthin Produce Market).

She's in charge of selecting products to sell in the Tourist Info Centres in Llangollen and Mold and wants some of my soaps etc. plus my little felt bowls - so I'm going to see her in Llan on Thursday.

Llangollen gets loads of national and international tourists (International Eisteddfod, Canoeing, Historical/Legend, Steam Railway, Canal, Walkers) - I don't know about Mold although it has quite a bit of history it's not in such a picturesque setting.

Oh, I'm sorry it was a bad market day, but that's excellent news about the Tourist Info Centres, Elaine!

It just shows you that it can work.  Good luck with that.  I am sure that will bring some really good things your way  :buttrf: :buttrf:

All in all I'd say your day was a success, as all success is relative, and you have a fabulous lead from your time at the market. Excellent stuff :buttrf:

I am sorry you had a bad day. Being chased around the internet is good though and hopefully something will come of that.

Shame the market wasn't so good but what a promising meeting with the lady who was looking for you. Hope it goes well when you see her next.

Great news about the tourist centres - that will surely lead to something as she would not have chased you about otherwise. Pity about the fair though.

Shame the day itself wasn't so good, but it could end up being one your most lucrative days in the long run.
