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.

Oh the Baking…

I know it’s been a few days since you’ve heard from me but believe me, it’s been for good reason. I opened another shop on Etsy. I debated about it for a while and then took the plunge. I’m not sure I want to keep the gift shop on Etsy open as it doesn’t seem that I’ve been selling enough to suit me. I’m not sure about this one either but I’m doing it anyway. My new shop is called Baker Road Bakery. Since I’m baking for 2 coffee shops and people love my baked goods, I thought it would be a good idea to put them on Etsy as well. I can reach more people that way. If the baked goods don’t begin to sell then I will know it’s not the right thing to do. I certainly have put my time in on the gift shop part. I figure, you don’t know if you don’t try. I can’t afford the time though if it isn’t going to pan out. I’ve been at it a year and I’m about to give up on it.

Anyway I wanted to share some of my latest creations. These are Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopee Pies.

They are very yummy indeed. When I delivered more baked goods tonight, I was so surprised to see how many things were left from my original order. This was the first batch and I took another one tonight.

My chocolate chip scones were a hit as well. These delicious scones have buttermilk in them which gives them a most wonderful taste.  I’m pleased that they are a hit and can’t wait to make more.
These raspberry squares went really fast!
And last but certainly not least, sour cream coffee cake. I hope you enjoy seeing some of the things I’ve been baking. Every day I am planning on making soap and then another order comes in. It’s OK. I don’t mind! Well that’s about all for today. 7AM rehearsal so I’m done for the day.Hopefully, I’ll be able to write again tomorrow.
