Feto Soap will be back in Houston for one day at the Midtown Farmers Market – this Saturday from 8am – Noon at the local crafts spree. I’ll be bringing as much soap as I can squeeze into my Honda Civic. If you have any special requests, please make them known now! (pre-Friday)
You will be able to make your very own custom bar of soap at the feto soap booth for just $6.00. I’ll help you choose the scent, color, glitter and toy combination. It takes just minutes to put this together. After you pour the soap, you need about 30 minutes for it to set. At $6.00 it’s reasonably-priced fun craft project to do this weekend.
Along with the fun soap-crafting that can be done, you can have breakfast at t’afia and shop the farmers market to fill your cupboard with fresh, local produce and prepared foods!
The Midtown Farmers Market is located in the front of Monica Pope’s T’afia. 3701 Travis Street @ W. Alabama, next door to the Breakfast Klub
If you are not a morning person and cannot make it to the Midtown Farmers Market this Saturday, I will be at Té House of Tea: 1927 Fairview from 9pm – Midnight.
Did you know that Feto Soap has a fan page on facebook? If you like us, fan us!
@soaplog on twitter asked me if getting into markets and fairs was something difficult to get into. I have to say, I stumbled into doing them five years ago. I was selling my soap online and a supportive friend posted a link to my site on Meta Filter
from Meta Filter’s about page
“Metafilter is a weblog (what’s a weblog? | comprehensive history of weblogs) that anyone can contribute a link or a comment to. A typical weblog is one person posting their thoughts on the unique things they find on the web. This website exists to break down the barriers between people, to extend a weblog beyond just one person, and to foster discussion among its members.”
Claire of Poopscape.com reads Meta Filter. She blogged about feto soap. I looked in my referrer log and saw her link to me and her zines, and asked her if she wanted to trade zines for soap. We exchanged mailing addresses and I discovered that she lived in my neighborhood! We met for coffee at Brazil. A couple months later (I think in the fall) she emailed me about a new craft market that was held behind the same coffee shop! It was the Dunlavy St. Craft Market. I think I showed up with a dozen bars of soap… totally unprepared! They held a few more craft markets and I learned what to bring by figuring out what I didn’t have the last time.
I’m not sure how the organizers of the Dunlavy St. Market knew Andrea at the Midtown Farmers Market, but she shared her list of crafters with Andrea, and I started selling there too! I think a year later the Houston Farmers Market approached me to start selling at their market as a weekly vendor. so that’s how I went from online to in person sales at craft markets.
I’ll be at the Spacetaker Winter Holiday Art Market all weekend with finished products and a make your own soap station! Hopefully I’ll see you there!
We are happy to announce that we will be a part of the Spacetaker Winter Holiday Art Market! This year you will have the option to create your very own soap right in our booth! You’ll be able to customize the color, scent & toy in your soap (if you want a toy in your soap!) Here’s the skinny:
