The Antique and Artisan Show

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a week since the show. It was a wonderful show and it was even better because my cousin came up from CT and we were able to go to the show together. It was great! The lunch was fabulous and dessert was to die for. I was able to get a new hand crafted mirror for the Adirondack room and I’m very excited about it! It’s done in birch bark with twigs around the sides. Just perfect for that room.

Getting ready for the show was both work and fun. I created some new soaps and made some lotions which sold well.

This is Patchouli made from goat’s milk soap. It was a popular purchase at the show as was the lotion.

This is actually lavender vanilla but I’m going to make some the same color in chocolate.
These are some brand new pressed flower soaps with baby powder fragrance. My cousin says if blue had a smell this would be it. These were also a hit at the show.
A new soap that can be used to clean your hands after gardening or for your feet. It’s an exfoliating soap made from shea butter with pumice for that extra scrubbing. The shea butter makes your skin soft.
This soap has a wonderful smell. Goat’s milk with a lemongrass essential oil fragrance. Wonderful!
All in all, the show was a great experience. Making all of these new soaps was a lot of fun. There are more to come. For those of you that check the website, please be patient with me. School is extremely busy at this time and my time to upload things to the website is limited. You can always shoot me an email if there’s something you’d like that you see here. northforkbandb@hughes.net I’m working on the spa bags and gardening gift baskets for mother’s day gift giving as well. Hopefully, I’ll get these onto the site very soon.

It’s Official…

Yup, Baker Road Bakery. That’s what we’re called,well, for the baking part anyway. Our baked goods will be part of what we offer at the upcoming SLCHA craft show on April 24th in Canton. This morning has been crazy! For whatever reason, even though I need to go to work, I decided to change the look of the blog. I don’t like it as much as what was here before but I can’t seem to find my way back to what I had originally. Rather than miss being able to post, I decided to just go with this and work on it another time. I really wanted to say more about Baker Road Bakery but time does not permit. I’m hoping to be on Etsy, we’ll see….At any rate, the clock it ticking and I need to go to work. More will follow regarding Baker Road Bakery, North Fork B&B and the gift shop. It’s Friday!! Gotta love that! Check back for updates.

Upcoming Craft Fair…

I’m hoping to be working on new products and making soap after work today. Yesterday I spent my time baking. I got another pretty large order for a coffee shop so my time was spent filling that. My plan for today is get cracking on getting ready for the St. Lawrence County Historical Associations Annual Craft Fair and Antique Show in Canton on April 24th. All week I’ve been designing this new soap in my mind and I can’t wait to put it together. Here’s hoping it’ll be today. I have some awesome new molds and fabulous colors. I’m also planning to put together some new spa bags too. As soon as I can manage to get these things going I’ll be taking photos to share. Check back and hopefully, I’ll have some brand new products for you to see. That’s the plan…
