I’ll be setting up shop at Jaya 33’s weekend bazaars twice in July:
July 9th – 12th
July 23rd – 26th
Lots of friends have been asking when we’ll next be setting up stall. June has been a busy month for me with the family–attending a personal development seminar, spending a weekend in Bali, and tackling my kids’ bout of food poisoning this weekend (they’re already on the mend, thank goodness). So yes, it’s about time I get back into meeting all you lovely people in person and see how I can help your bath times be kinder to your skin.
If you’d like to pre-order any soap, have a gift pack specially made, or would just like to have a chat, e-mail me at michelle(at)kindersoaps.com. Assuming my internet connection is stable, I won’t take longer than 3 business days to reply, I promise! 😉
I’ll be setting up a little table at Educare Section 16 (where my son absolutely enjoys learning!) on May 31st to support the playschool’s “Earth Day Carnival”. It’s an even organised for the public, so EVERYONE is most welcome to join in the fun activities! Among other things, there will be carnival games, face painting, henna art, a recycling project, some earth-themed F&B and plenty of squirmy children going nuts over the hubbub!
On my part, I’ll be bringing a limited array of soap to be sold. More importantly though,Â is that I have to dream up of some hands-on activities for the kids and adults to do with my soap to inject a bit of a fun element to my stall. Hmm… any suggestions, apart from using cookie-cutters to stamp out soap shapes?
Please do come and support this event. If you have children, bring them along – I can testify that the teachers at Educare truly care about their wellbeings and love all their charges to bits. Oh, and if you have plenty of old newspaper and other recyclable items that need to be cleared from your home, drive them over to the Carnival too. Remember to provide your own shopping bags and food containers, or you can purchase “Green Earth” bags at the Carnival and funds collected from these sales will be channeled to WWF and UNICEF.
EDUCARE’S EARTH DAY CARNIVAL
Sunday, May 31st 2009
0800hrs – 1200hrs
Educare Child Development Centre,
42, Jalan 16/6,
43650 Petaling Jaya,
What a fun weekend it was from the 7th till 10th of May, when I set up our first real flea market stall at Jaya 33! Thank you to everyone who took the time to browse through our selection of handmade soap, or stopped to chat. You are all lovely people.
Our top 3 best-selling soaps that weekend were the Goat’s Milk and Patchouli, Cocoa Butter and Just Lavender bars. We also had yet another lucky draw (this will be a regular feature in every flea market outing we do) and CHUA PAULINE was this week’s winner! Still waiting to hear from you, Pauline. 😉
I wish I had the presence of mind to take photos of the stall and my newly-found friends with my camera though. Argh! But nevermind, I promise there’ll be lots more flea market appearances in the future, so watch this space for announcements. I’ve been absolutely up to my eyeballs with minding the children and all sorts of other things of late – my apologies for letting this blog fall silent for quite a while.
(Update: Ah, here’s one shot I managed to coax out of my phone)
Again, it was a pleasure to have met so many of you at the bazaar and I look forward to crossing paths with you once again. I am also humbled that many of you commended The Kinder Soap Company on our principles regarding keeping our ingredients free from artificial additives, and how we are striving to adopt environmentally-friendly practices in our business. Your continued support and belief in what we stand for is priceless. 🙂
That’s right! We’ll have a booth at Tongue in Chic’s charity event at Somo, Mont Kiara, from 3pm till 7pm on Sunday, March 1st2009. Full details here.
Soaps on sale:
Pour Homme (Lime, Rosemary, Cinnamon, Crushed Black Sesame Seeds)
Olive, Wheatgerm and Honey
Goats Milk Patchouli
Charcoal Tea Tree
You’ll also have a chance to win yourself a bar of our all-natural, handmade soap in our lucky draw! Just leave your name and e-mail address with me at the event, or your business card–that’s all there is to it. The draw will be done at the end of the event itself, and we’ll get in touch with the winners via e-mail.
So if you can make it, do drop by to look around. The event is in aid of the Women’s Aid Organisation, where all proceeds from sale of clothing (all priced between RM5 and RM15!) will be channeled to the WAO. =)
Take care now, and have a wonderful weekend.
(Update: Congratulations to Yi Hueih on being our lucky winner!)
