Upcoming Shows, Making Whipped Butters and Failed Batches

I have two great shows coming up in the next few days, so I'm scrambling to make some more product (I didn't expect to sell out of stuff this past weekend!).

Friday May 6th I will be at the Central Eglinton Community Center in Toronto for the Spring Bazaar
10am- 2pm
 160 Eglinton Ave. East (at Yonge Street and Eglinton).
Free Admission- with lots of great vendors selling arts & crafts, baby quilts, bookmarks, charms, gifts, greeting cards, jewelry, knitted items, keychains, tote bags, artwork, pottery and more!

Saturday May 7th I will be in Oshawa for a show benefiting the Durham Humane Society
Crafts, vendors, a yard sale, BBQ and a tarot card reader! It should be a fun day.
Storie Park Club House
10 Mill Street
8am- 2pm

Don't forget to buy Mom a mother's day gift and come on out!

I just finished whipping up some whipped shea butter - it doesn't matter what time of year it is, this is a product that always sells well. Why? Because it's fabulous for skin! Just a pure whipped shea with added coconut oil and some lime essential oil.
There is nothing bad in this product, and it's fabulous for skin and smells amazing to boot - and, yes, it does look like whipped cream!

And what about failed batches?

Well, I made a large batch of my Grapefruit and Mint lotion yesterday, as it's been selling really well, and what happened today when I went to bottle it? 
Lotion on the top and water on the bottom.
It hadn't emulsified!
It was either a temperature issue or I neglected to mix it well enough.
The lesson: it doesn't matter how many times you do something, or how well you think you are at it- there are always mistakes and there can always be user error.
Live and learn!

And my apologies to those over the weekend who may want a Grapefruit and Mint Lotion - I'll be making more next week.

I hope to see you over the weekend at a show or two!
