    ARRRG! I'm looking for a shopping cart software that's free. One where the cart shows on my site instead of going to another site. Does this make sense?

    My site...IS FINALLY DONE!

    I've had my site for over 2 years and I've never been happy with the way it looked. I think I finally got it right. What do y'all think?

    My site

    I'm thinking my site needs a change. I get great online sales and I'm always changing something on my site but I still feel like I need something more. Any advice/feedback?

    Hemp soap

    Does anyone have a picture of hemp soaps? I'm thinking about making some. Also, where do y'all get your hemp seed oil?

    I had a show this past weekend. There was me and 1 other person selling soaps there. My soaps are natural, light and beneficial to your skin and hers were hot pink and bright blue and WAY over scented. She made M&P and told me she used just straight white base, no goats milk no beneficial...

    Thinking about hosting a craft fair

    What do y'all think? I would have it in my town's National Guard Armory or outdoors in the park. I'm just now thinking about this so it would be a good year before I get everything straight and start advertizing for it.

    Goat Milk

    Fresh or Powdered??? What do you use? Do you add it at trace or do you make lye/milk (instead of lye/water)?

    Selling soap logs/loaves.

    I see a lot (on eBay and websites) where CP soap makers sell their soap in logs/loaves so people can cut it themselves. I don't understand this. If a gift shop owner buys a 2 pound loaf to sell it "by the slice", do you cure it for 4 weeks BEFORE sending it to the shop? If it's cured...

    My site.

    I changed the look of my website. I changed the banner and the backgrounds. There are still a few pages that are empty but I think after having this site for over a year and getting really great sales from it, I finally have it looking the way I want it to. :D

    An owner of a gift shop out of town is wanting me to send her samples. I only have 1 wholesale customer and they're 3 miles away so I've never sent samples before. What do I send? Do I send her whole bars in the packaging and everything? I have about 20 different soaps, do I send her like...

    I have made a soap cutter that cuts my 30" logs into 1" bars perfectly. The problem is that after just 3 logs my wires broke. I read online that I need medium-gauge guitar wire or 20 to 22-gauge music wire. I can't find these anywhere! Does anyone on here have a wire soap cutter? Do you...

    How do y'all advertise your soaps? I have a website and I usually get at least one order a day. I just checked and I had 123 hits on my site today but I want MORE! Does anyone mail out fliers? How do y'all advertise?

    For those of you who are full time soapers... much money did it take for y'all to get started with your business? I get a lot of people telling me that they want to start a soap business now that I have inspired them. What they don't know is that in order to buy the supplies I needed at first I had to get a loan for $1500!!! Then...

    My first craft show!

    I had my first show this past weekend. In 2 days I brought in almost $900 in sales from the show and from my website. I just wanted to share the good news. I'm so excited. Now I can start paying off debts that I have from starting my business. LOL Here's my hubby at the booth:

    My first attempt... hand dipped candles. They didn't turn out as primitive looking as I wanted. They actually just look like store bought. I made some more since then but I don't have a picture. I made an Apple Pie scented pair that I rolled in cinnamon...really grubby lookin.
