My First Sale!

What exciting news! I haven't started to advertise my soap for sale yet, but I have been giving away (some may call it "forcing") some samples to friends and coworkers. One of the ladies liked it so much that she approached me and asked to buy some! It felt so nice to have someone actually approach me, tell me that they liked my product, and ask to purchase some :) I feel extra good about it because it's my very first sale, so it's kind of a big deal.

The soap was a gift for her mother, so I did some quick wrapping and labeling. It was quite spur-of-the-moment, as I haven't gotten as far as packaging with my business planning yet. I'm pretty happy with it though, I intended to print the labels but as my printer was having issues I decided to write them by hand. I think it's pretty cute and gives it an extra-personal touch.

Cucumber Melon

Camellia Lemongrass

Oatmeal Lavender

I packaged them in a pretty seagrass basket with some pink tissue paper. I'm confident that they will arrive at their destination safely, without any dents or damage from being stepped on by the postman.

Another exciting thing that is happening is that my sister has approached me about making the favors for her upcoming wedding! That would be a huge event for BathingWithChelsea and I'm quite excited to show her some samples and get started on this massive project!

What do you think of my packaging? Do you have any great ideas on wedding favor soaps? Please leave your suggestions in the comments below!

  1. I think any of your mini soaps in a cute little box with your email address, etc on it would be great for the wedding - great advertising too. Let me know what you have for sale now - I'd like to buy some mini soaps - the Lavender Oatmeal sounds good to try....Lauranne
