I’ve got lots of soap to make this weekend, so I’d better get started!
Sadly we are no longer selling our products at Hertfordshire Craft Collective at Battlers Green Farm! For me at the moment, it is a case of ‘do less, get more done’.
But don’t forget, you can always purchase our products from our online shop.

Sadly this is our last week at the Herts Craft Collective at Battlers Green Farm in Radlett! It has been a pleasure to exhibit our wares in the barn over the last 4 months, but now we feel it is time to look for other local opportunities. I didn’t really feel I had the time to commit to getting over there regularly enough to keep on top of restocking and display etc.
A big thank you to Suzanne for allowing us to rent some space there since mid-March!
This weekend we took part in the Chorleywood Village Day on Chorleywood Common. It was our first year there and we know the Village always turns out to support local events as we have done the Christmas Evening and are regulars at Clement Danes School Christmas Fair.
We got off to a rocky start after we arrived at our pitch and realised we had left our table and gazebo sides at home, plus one of the water filled weights for the gazebo had a puncture and had leaked in the car! Anyway, Clive drove home (only 5 mins away!) to retrieve forgotten items.
The event started at 12 noon and before we knew it was buzzing with people! Unfortunately our pitch position was not favourable. We were near the entrance/exit, sandwiched between, surrounded by and slightly obscured by charity stalls, while all the other retail type stalls (jewellery, clothing, candles etc) were down in the middle of the action, near the stage where various performances were taking place. Anyway, we did feed this back to the organisers at the end and said we would like to return next year…in a better spot ☺
We did okay, but I think we can do a lot better next year! The visitors we did have were really enthusiastic about our natural skincare and I’m really glad we sold some of our new Mango and Hemp Miracle Butter because it’s amazing!
