Aunt B's Market Schedule

We have our summer schedule set with the Carroll County Farmers Market.  The market runs every Saturday starting on June 14 and ending the summer market schedule on August 30.  There are market dates September through December....but I'll just list my summer dates for now.

We will not be attending every Saturday market....we have some other summer family activities planned that does not include soap.

Aunt B's Carroll County Farmers Market Schedule summer 2014

June 14-- Opening Day
June 28--Quilt Day

We are also signed up for three of the Christmas and Hand Made Craft Markets in November and December....I'll post those dates later.

Make a plan to visit the market.  There's lots of homemade goodies.  Baked goods, crafts, flowers, soap, and as the season moves on there will be plenty of fresh garden produce.

Pictures of the Easter Show

Well, I'm only a week late getting these pictures posted.  This was our space at the Carroll County Farmers Market last Saturday (April 19, 2014).  We had a busy yet fun day at the market.  We are already preparing for Saturday, May 3rd when we'll be selling at the Urbana Flea Market and then again at the Carroll County Farmers Market--Mother's Day Show on Saturday, May 10.

I'm so thankful that Britney and Stephanie (my girls) help with the table set up.  They tend to take over the design of the table and they do a great job.

Special Order

I had fun putting together a special order.  Something suitable for an older lady.  She's not fancy.  She uses lotion.  My mind went straight to lavender.  Naturally my best selling Lavender, Vanilla and Oatmeal soap would be included....which led me to one of Aunt B's small lavender lotion bars in a tin.  Then I rummaged through my stash of Sugar 'n Cream cotton yarn and found Spring Swirl with a wonderful Lavender color....perfect.  Thankfully wash cloths can be whipped out in record speed.  I nestled all of these wonderful gifts in a great little purple pail I found at the craft store for fifty percent off.

And here's how the special order turned out.

Gearing up for the Easter Market

This Saturday, April 19, 8am-2pm is the Carroll County Farmers Market Easter Show.
The Easter Bunny will be at the market so bring your cameras for photo opportunities.
There will also be a free drawing of vendor coupons from the many vendors that will be attending.  Where you can reach in a box and pull out a coupon to win a  gift from one of the market vendors.

Aunt B's soaps will be there with all of our regular best selling soap as well as some we've made just
for the Easter Market.

  We have a limited number of the carrot cupcake soap for kids.  And we have a limited number of the carrot shaped soap that has pureed carrot within the soap and it has an amazing fragrance of carrot cake.  You might find it interesting to do and internet search  on the benefits of carrot in's really good for your skin.
Hope to see you there!!
