Lots and lots of luck and good sales. Sock it to 'em.  :buttrf:

The great thing about balms and butters is once you've got someone to try, they're often hooked. You've just got to reel 'em in!

Oh it was very cold! Froze my **** off  Grin

Nothing great sales wise - covered my stall fee and made a tiny bit more but on another note:

Lady returned from a few weeks ago because the small she bought worked really well and so she bought a larger pot
A few people took my card
I learnt of another fair next year in March will have more of the kind of people I need
I also learnt that I could call the local hospitals and ask to sell my products in their canteens — did any of you know you could do that?
Lots of people tried the products — loved them but did not buy? Pricing is wrong? Too expensive for their budget… So something to think about
Food was selling like crazy   :mwaha:

Overall a good day  Grin

Ooh so I bet you are glad to be home and start to thaw out  Smiley

Sorry it wasn't so good sales wise, but at least you didn't make a loss.  How did the little boxes go?  They would make nice xmas gifts.  Did you xmas your stall up Rajiv?  That might have attracted the gift-buyer maybe?

Pricing is hard isn't it.  The thing is, you have your costs and the product is what it is but it might be worth testing a lower price (if you margin will allow) just to see if it generates more sales maybe?

Great news about your returning customer  Grin  You also sound like you have pulled a lot of positive things from the experience, that I am sure will only serve you very well for the next time.  :buttrf: :buttrf:

Yup and I can also eat — I've had three meals already since coming home working on towards the fourth Grin

My stall was attracted lots of looks — I don't think my stall was 'Xmased' up. I'll post a photo.

Gift boxes — lots of interest zero sales.

Definitely going to look at pricing — I think I can afford to change it slightly, even if it's by a £1 it can change things hugely  Grin

Ah... what a lovely clean layout.  I like the little square shelf-type-frame thingemees.  Don't those little gift boxes look good on the table.  Actually, I should have popped into to town for the festival (just didn't get enough time). 

P.S.  glad you didn't forget the pic Rajiv cos you would have been in BIG troubles  :mwaha:
