Someone Won RM500 to Spend at Kinder Soaps!

Those of you who visited us at the most recent Crafty Art Market may have participated in our Lucky Draw by answering a few quick questions (thanks for stopping by y’all!). We had 60 entries, and the lucky winner was entry number 17, as selected by random.org. It’s Mr Steven Chung who stopped by to chat and pick up a bar of soap. πŸ™‚ Congratulations Steven! I’m so glad that we can help you sort out your Christmas gift shopping! πŸ™‚ RM500 can get you a lot of soap. A. LOT.

Another treat (for me at least) was that my brother, Lionel, offered to come and help out at the booth for the afternoon. I had such fun having him around, spotting all the marketing issues that I missed and basically acting as a much-needed additional hand/mouth/brain/eyes/feet for the entire time he was there. It was his birthday too! My dad was also around–you may have spied him seated at the back of the booth with his iPad. He wasn’t playing games, mind you… He was scheming. Big things. πŸ˜‰

Here we are, for the first time–a whole-family affair at a Kinder Soaps bazaar outing.

I still didn’t have much time to walk around the Market to take photos or visit booths, and it still took me 3 hours to finish a burger that was supposed to have been my lunch… But I’d never ask for anything to have turned out differently. It was a lovely, sunny Saturday, and it was spent in a most satisfying way. πŸ™‚

See you all again at the next bazaar!

Kinder Soaps at Crafty Art Market

Crafty Art Market Flier

Eee! For the first time in Malaysia, there will be a gathering of Etsy craftspeople showcasing some hard-to-find, one-of-a-kind art pieces and other lovingly hand-made goods.

Kinder Soaps will be there too!

Here are the event’s details:

There will also be another soapmaker there, Christine of Kalleo Handmade Soaps who also makes all-natural, cold process soap. Her creations are pretty special as she often includes infused oils using herbs and other plant material that she obtains straight from her own garden. It’s quite a coincidence (or otherwise?) that we both live in the same suburb!

So why not check out Jaya One’s inaugural Crafty Art Market and see if it will meet your Christmas shopping needs? πŸ˜€ Bring friends and family–because after you’re done ogling at our wares I strongly recommend taking a breather and ordering something from The Bee’s menu. The food there is honest, wholesome, and our family has walked away from our meals there feeling very happy indeed!

For the full list of vendors, read my blogpost over at Etsy Malaysia’s site.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
