Opening day at the Downtown Farmer’s Market was fantastic! The weather could not have been any more wonderful; sunshine with a slight breeze, just perfect weather for outdoor shopping. With 30 plus vendors at our local Market there is much to see and do and this year marks the tenth year of the Market’s existence.
We spent alot of time this year thinking about how we would like to change around our booth setup to make it more visually appealing to our customers as well as showcase some of our new products. As you might know we carry a very vintage vibe and flair to everything we do so it was only fitting to work with some fantastic vintage pieces – our favorite 1950’s Maytag Pink Washer is always a must, we also brought back our big white sink for sugar scrub demos. We added a large old wooden board ladder for soap display and the coolest blue Samsonite piece of luggage which currently houses our masculine line of soaps.
The bath bombs continue to be one of our best sellers and therefore earned themselves placement at the front of the booth on our favorite shabby chic white table which we purchased from one of our retail locations last year. We added breezy natural curtains to the booth and a cool large weave rug. We love our new booth and based on the feedback from our customers, they do too!
Some of our newer products include our all natural powder deodorant which is available in 4 scents – unscented, peppermint, lavender and cedar. It is a deodorant powder, not an antiperspirant which means it will not inhibit the ability to sweat but it will allow you to smell clean and fresh. The powder can be applied via a makeup type brush or with fingertips. A little goes a long way and we are happy to offer a natural alternative that not only works well but does not contain any questionable or harmful ingredients.
We also have added a felted wool soap bar kit which has been extremely popular with our customers. It includes all the supplies and directions needed to make 1 bar of felted wool soap and comes with the bar of soap of your choice. Its a great gift for the crafty person or for someone who is hard to buy for. Many of our customers buy the kit to work on with their kids or grand kids.
Finally we had to make room for our seasonal soaps. Currently we are offering 4 new scents for Spring/Summer. They include coconut, margarita, honey almond with oats and lilac made with goats milk. The hands down favorite is the lilac and we are working like crazy to keep it in stock!
We hope to see you soon at the Downtown Terre Haute Farmers Market.
