Visting Local Lavender Farmer

Spending time at The Lamm Farm on Sunday afternoon was fun outing for me. The Lamm Farm is one of our local lavender farms located in Lincoln, California. Amy Dempster has grown up in the farm and has decided to grow several types of lavenders at her parent farm land. Lavenders were planted last year and yesterday was her first open house to show her lavender farm to her friends and family. Thank you Amy for inviting me to explore and be inspired by your hard work to turn your land to a wonderful lavender land. ImageAmy Dempster, The Lamm Farm, was greeting me with lavender lemonade and lavender brownie.

I was enjoy scenting great fresh lavender.

And of course, I had to grab a few bundles of dried lavender with me which I could use them to decor my booth . My next events will be in July, however, you can visit my site anytime 24/7 at http:www.purepalettescents.com.

My First Craft Fair 2010

This was a learning curve for me! Showing my Pure Palette soy candles at a craft fair. To be exact, I set up my booth at the Mardi Gras craft fair in Nevada City, California. It was great atmosphere and suited the Mardi Gras very well. Lots of the vendors were selling beads and masks, which seemed to be the most popular craft fair wares. Not to mention this was a high demand item for the Mardi Gras celebration.

For me, I have to say that it was the right decision made, this whole becoming a craft fair vendor. I really enjoyed meeting my customers in person and chatting with them. In doing so I realized that not many people really understand using soybean candles. It was quite shocking to discover so many people are clueless as to what soy candles are. They don’t know anything about how much more they actually like lighted soybean candles than smoky wax candles. How is it that such a great number of people today have no knowledge of the benefits soybean candles offer them? Amazing.

Now that I have my first craft fair adventure as a vendor, I know what I have to do for all my future craft fairs. I definitely will be adding a few things to my booth display. For one, my sign will be very nicely done and printed; a banner showing the benefit of burning soybean candles. I will need more…Lots more soy candles! I must have a lot of merchandise to fill up my booth in thick colorful, fragrant layers…

Cheers!
