Hubby and I went to the Strawberry Festival in Oxnard, CA today, which is very popular and be going on for many years. It would have been great if it did not take us 2 hrs each way to go 77 miles Of course I had to check out the 5 people selling soaps and I feel very sorry for them. The cost was $350 for 2 days and we saw no one selling. That goes for other types of vendors also. The B&B sellers just did not have enough to sell to even make the booth. Two had mainly bath bombs, a few butters and a few soaps. In my experience not many will pay $5 for one batch. The other interesting thing I noticed, because of course I am nosy, is all the different sellers had the same ingredient list and same order. Olive and CO first two ingredients, and they were selling them for less than I get at my tiny weekly market. I just do not get it. Their other problem is it is supposed to rain tomorrow and attendees at these kind of markets do not usually return the next days since tickets are $5-$12, with $5 being the price for kids plus $10 parking, and Sundays are very seldom as good as Sat. Only thing that sells well at these types of venues is food and the Kids games.
