As promised, I come bearing photos.
We finished setting up our booth. For today, that's the only thing I have pictures of.
We think it looks pretty spiffy and the computer screen will be where we will show a continuous loop of a short soap making demo. We're on a corner and most of the soap is behind us on the shelves.
The painted blue "thing" on the right is a giant bluebird box that appeared overnight. Somehow we offended our neighbors because we got the corner. I think by rights they think it should be theirs, so we now have this "thing" completely blocking our view to the left. The event coordinator didn't think much of the set up, so we'll see if anything happens to it. We'll probably get blamed for that too... oh well.
Another shot from the "front".
Tina's books and magazine are to the right and the main soap display is on the left.
We only have a few bars on the display and will have to get what our customers want from the shelves in back. This may change as the week goes on!
Oh, the judging of the soaps is over and we placed second in the "decorative" class. First was some beautiful molded soaps and we had entered some of our Lavender swirled bars. I'm not sure what they were looking for in the "Lye" division, but our Patchouli/Rose didn't place there. The winner made some plain white soap. We should have entered a chunk of our lard soap... Live and learn.
So tonight, DH made us a prime rib dinner so we'll have some protein to start us off. Farm Show food is supposed to be delicious, but it looks to be extremely expensive - I mean, a $2.75 Pepsi! We'll be taking a cooler each day, at least that's the plan.
So, all our plans are made and we'll see how we fare...
