I haven't done a house party in ages (since broken foot), and have one this Thurs.  It'll be a nice gathering of stylist, nail technician, card maker and more.

And some of you know how I've never been fond of markets, but agreed to one coming up this Sat.

So, I'm all set and prepared, here is a little melange of what I'll have on for sale. I've been working flat out (as some of my products will be stocked from next week onwards in a spa with two branches in London), so apologies for not being around much!

Thanks for looking!

Andy, your products look lovely, I'm sure everyone will want to buy them.  I love those tall bottles

A house party sounds good, they've not really taken off up here yet - not sure why that is.  I know they're fairly big on mainland Europe and picking up momentum down south, so they may start to trickle in up here - sound like a much better use of time than carft fairs.

Craft fairs I definitely try to avoid, though we had one last weekend and have another one on saturday - kind of unavoidable really.

Before anyone asks...

3 bottles on left are for the hand serums some of you tested.  I've tweaked the recipe a bit, and went for the myrrh blend.

3 diff balms on the right: one with mica, one without and a 'general' balm that can also be used on lips; all unscented (no EOs; but 2 lip balms have cocoa butter so smell of that).

The perfumed butter is may chang, frangipani and jasmine - I think the best blend I've ever made, absolutely love it, but it is overpowering.

Bath oils in green bottles at the back, and my 'boring' soap (castile with OO, no scent).

Thanks, Eire!

Denice - I only agreed to this one because it's inside a massive pub, so I'll be warm. Also, it's very close to home, and in a very quaint area, first ever market they've done there was 2 months ago and now they're doing this one. Table was very cheap for West London price tags! (£15, when usually is £150!!!). We'll see...

House parties are interesting, but usually 'invitation only'. I was surprised with this one being announced openly on FB, with address and everything! I hope we're not ramsacked!!!  :mwaha:

You'll do well Andy – fab products. I don't blame you for avoiding fairs – the two I've done so far do not make me want to do lots next year  Grin
