Chile Festival part 2

So this picture was on the front page of the Pueblo Chieftain today it shows the crowd better and you can see my booth too! I have a different tent from most people it is rounded and has a shade awning that goes out the front. I highlighted it in red :)

See tons of people, and when it got dark it was even busier!

back from the chile festival

The pictures are from before it really got busy!

Whew what a long weekend of selling soap and candles! The Chile festival went really good and I ended up selling a ton of soap over the 3 days.

The size of the crowd was insane it never seemed to end starting from 10 am going all the way till 10 pm! Odd to say this but I almost think it was too busy, the crowd more or less just kept pushing forward making it hard for people to stop and shop. I moved my tables back as far as I could to let people stop better. I think the sales would have been even higher if people had been able to stop better but I am still not complaining! You would get dizzy watching the crowd go by the booth. I have no clue what the numbers were on attendance but it had to be really high each day.

Next up is Apple Day this Saturday it will be nice to only have to go one block for a craft show. I happen to live in downtown of my small town so that has some advantages.

Tonight I was in pouring more apple themed candles and I need to knock out some cupcake soaps as I pretty much sold out this last weekend.

update coming after the weekend

ok I really wanted to do a blog post showing the new molds but I just can't find the time. I have a million things to do still for the show this weekend and I have to start loading up tomorrow night. So please check back after the weekend and I will update how the big show went and maybe show those molds finally!

See you at the Pueblo Chile Festival!

small change to display

This weekend was the first show after making a small change to the display. Now the top of each level has been painted pink! The main reason was the display was heating up pretty good during the hot shows so hoping the pink helps reflect some of the radiant heat. Matches my colors better as well I figure.

Just got confirmation that I am officially in the Pueblo Chile Festival this next weekend. Nothing like them waiting till it was less then a week away to let you know you are in it. Show attendance should be 100K+ so this will be my biggest show and I have no idea what to expect. I have been trying to prepare for this show for awhile now ended up making 600+ bars of soap getting ready for it. Still trying to work on some more bath bombs, candles and glycerin soaps before the show is here on Friday. If you don't have it you can't sell it so still doing a big push to get as much done as I can!

Got two new molds which I am testing and I should have some early pictures in another day or two for everyone to see.

Candle Time!

L to R
2 Vanilla Bean, 2 Chocolate Cappuccino, Green/Red Apple, Red Apple

2 Blueberry, Green Apple, Blueberry

Working on stocking the candles up they tend to sell better in the fall so time to get ready for the rush!

Going to see a number of apple themed candles coming as the town I live in has Apple Day and I will be setting up my booth that day. So time to bring on the apple scents like red and green apple, hot apple pie, and nutty taffy apple.

Apple day is a blast everyone in the town bakes an apple pie for a contest and then they give away a slice of apple pie to everyone that comes to Apple Day. Can't beat free apple pie right?!?! ahhh small town life so different from my time in Los Angeles!
