Wow, some of those loaf soaps are great! I can't wait to make my 1st swirly one. I have so much soap to chop / make when I get home!

I'm planning on making a green tea loaf, oatmeal and honey, and my special goat's milk, oatmeal and honey. These are some of my most popular sellers. I'm always suprised at how much people like the green tea and honey.

If I lived next to/near a soap supply store, I would be so broke!

Maybe tomorrow will be a slower day when I don't have to be constantly hanging up the phone and calling back!

I'm trying to decide how to go about my first loaf soap- I was totally inspired by your stuff!  I'm thinking maybe a plastic drawer liner? *grin* I just HATE paying for a 'commercial' mold.

As for living by the soap suppliers- I AM BROKE! LOL poor ken is doing all he can to keep me in supplies.  I just picked up an order on monday and now here I am adding stuff to the shopping cart- it NEVER ENDS lol. I better sell some more soap quick-like hehe

My favorite loaf mold is a parallel printer cable box. (Plastic box) You can use a plastic shoebox (rubbermaid) or whatever brand.

I recently started doing craft shows and had $0 to spend on tables. We already owned a folding card table and sawhorses, so I took a little trip to my local home improvement store and found some scrap lumber: 1/2 inch thick 2x8. I got the lumber for free! (Actually, I only got it for free because they were so busy they didn't want to fool with marking it, so they just said to take it.) Check out the back of the store near the cutting area. You might luck into a slab that will fit in your car, like I did.

I bought a twin flat sheet to drape over it, and I overlay some tulle, as well. It is nice because I can put my jewelry on this table and my dog biscuits on the card table. I can adjust my sawhorses to 37", which puts the jewelry up closer to eye level and means folks don't have to hunch down to inspect it. It also gives me LOTS of room to hide boxes, bags, food, etc under the table.

The picture is a little dark, but maybe you can get the gist of it:

The other displays I built with about $30 worth of lumber and five hours of labor.

I've discovered the wonderful world of blogs:

That's awesome. I was really stressed this week because I didn't own a table (have a small car too) and the fee is pretty high for this market. I ended up 1st buying tables from target that were too shallow. I ended up buying a 6 ft x 3 ft table from walmart  last night and am trying to figure out how to display my soap on it tonight. I bought some $1/yd material as well to cover it.

OK- my tables are 30 x 60 and look like this:

does anyone know where else to find these other than walmart?

You can get them online at Target. My local Target and Walmart did not carry them. If you have an academy, they might carry something like this as well.

You guys should look at some of the chain camping stores for folding "picnic" tables, thats where i got mine, and its pretty inexpensive/sturdy.  Here is a similar one at REI,  http://www.rei.com/online/store/ProductDisplay?storeId=8000&catalogId=40000008000&productId=47794030&parent_category_rn=4500555
hope this helps!
