After the most recent craft show, I determined that I had too many choices of my products which resulted in people either walking by the “clutter” or coming in, sniffing each soap and lotion bar choice and leaving without a purchase. It wasn’t that this particular market was over saturated, as I was the only vendor of such products, especially natural, organic, no chemicals added soaps, lotion bars and salves.
As a result of this, I have decided to have a major clearance sale of all but 4 soap scents. There are many choices available right now in my shop for $3 per bar or 4 for $10 with a flat domestic $3 shipping rate on up to 4 bars. The jumbo lotion bars are also going away and the remaining ones are discounted to $7 per tin. There will be no more than 4 scents of the 1+ ounce size. The salves will stay but the lip balm, sleep balm, Biker Bum balm, and Brigand’s Oil and salve will not be made again once they are gone. If you have wanted to try some of my products, or wanted to replenish your supply, now is the time. If you private message me on the Cabin Crafted Facebook page, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or through the shop messenger, I will put together the package of your choice and will calculate the most economical shipping or arrange to meet you if you are local.
I did add the best selling Citrus Soother Lotion Bar into the shop today as well as two of the Beard Oils that I make.
The display at shows will be much simplified as well.
If you read the blog post yesterday, the broody hen refused to return to the nest, even when I put another hen in with her. I removed the eggs at dark and hoped that she would start over today, but neither hen in the brooder laid an egg today or sat on the nests. I opened the door and the run gate and both hens rushed back into the flock. Broody hen went promptly into the coop and sat on the nest she had been on onto the eggs that had been laid today. I guess that I will just leave her there and if she hatches any chicks in 3 weeks, I will move her with her new family to the brooder coop to isolate them from the rooster and other hens until they are old enough to be introduced.
