Setting Up For The Clam Festival
I had the opportunity to set up the tent, tables, banners etc. today (Thursday) and I figured it's going to be alot easier to do it now rather than at 7:00 in the morning along with the 119 other vendors. My dad just happened to be in the area today so I asked him to give me a hand setting up my tent. Oh, I'm sure there will be other vendors today too and I will snap a couple of pre-festival pictures to share with you. I won't put out my soap until Friday. My husband (Captain) will help me with that. Then a long day of selling lots of soap.
Craft Show Hours:
In the meanwhile, here is a quick picture "behind the scenes" at Casco Bay Soap Co. of the soap labeling. I am almost done, only about 100 left to label!
Each soap is labeled, one by one. I still print the labels on my home compturer/printer. I did have the forsight to pre-run a ton of lables so I wouldn't be running of hundreds and hundreds of labels in just a few short days. I also normally have a generic label and hand write the fragrace of the soap on the label. This time I added the fragrances and some description to the front of the label and printed it off. This saved ALOT of time, no handwriting needed!
