Samples go with purchase...even small purchases.1) Samples in times of covid. I’ve been making a ton of samples the last month to just give away a bunch.
Soap, Lotion Bars and Whipped Body Butter. I had set aside a jar of Unscented Butter and used a plastic flat thingy that I could wipe off and dip in IPA.2) Selling other things like lotion bars and balms.
I bought a half dozen Expandable Racks and Expandable Racks 2. I normally box my soap, but all my display soaps is shrink wrapped so folks can easily pick them up, look at them, smell them, whatever...then I can easily sanitize for the next person. I usually have two of each for display, to give the alcohol smell a chance to go away.3) Displays
I...have a Wheeled Cart with a Cargo Net. I measured the interior space and bottom shelf, and my soaps and sundries and then bought plastic see-through containers. With careful planning, you can actually get a LOT of stuff in that cart and it also has a fold-down shelf.4) Schlepping to and fro.
Right now, my sister and I split the cost of a space and since we do the market in her town, her husband brings the tables and gazebo and set them up for us (he gets paid in soap).
