I'll be doing my first craft show, soon, and it's not traditional booth-to-booth. Everyone's items are all mixed together like a department store.

I make soap, but the visual aspect of the soap is important. How should I package the soap to sell and take home, but will still allow buyers to see what the soap looks like? Zip-lock bags are just too boring Wink

My personal favorite thing to do is to tightly wrap the soap in cellophane - either bags or "present style" - and tie raffia or cool ribbon around it with a tag from cool matching paper.  It looks nice, and it's sanitary since everything is wrapped up.

You can also try organza bags, but *everyone* does that, so it probably won't stand out.

You can design strips of paper that can wrap around the middle of the soap, so that it has your logo and your information on it, as well as the scent, etc.

i googled "soap" and found some examples:

I can tell you, Fall is composed of

1 part dead fish smell
1 part wet leaves
1 part arctic chilled air (not winter chilled variety)
2 parts crunchy walking
a pinch very cold rain
some apples you picked yourself
a few very still moments
a good deal of inner reflection

My local craft store sells nice cellophane bags you could tie with a ribbon. I also like the easy cheap paper around the middle route, though.

Thanks so much! I think I'll try the paper-around-it route!

I cut up brown paper grocery bags into strips, write or stamp on the front, and wrap around the middle.

i use the ceran wrap in my kitchen. put the soap upside down on the seran wrap and pull the sides real tight on the back.[kinda like bakeries do with their cookies] it's not going to stick to itself permanantly so you can put your logo and info on a sticker [or print it out and use packing tape to make it a sticker]. it actually looks pretty professional and you can still smell and see it Smiley

you should just tie some string/tweed around it with a bow on top and put a tag off the string with your info on it, but italso depends on the shape of the soap
