It's 8PM and I'm bushed..... almost ready. The tour is described here:

http://www.brookevalleyspringtour.ca

Here are a few pics inside my place tonight, if you care to take a peek:

My livingroom has been turned into a soap selling studio. Here's a view from top of stairs.



My Ikea soap stand, which has been through so many shows the bolt holes are now stripped. DH says he's going to burn it on Tuesday, he is that tired of setting it up and insists this is our last open house tour.



and closer:



a peek behind the stand, where soap for refilling is stored:



and the cash setup, with laptop for Visa transactions. There's a printer on the second shelf, not shown.



Two long tables are set up for a jeweler, and a honey/herbs seller.



and a hammock maker will suspend some chairs in the porch:



more pics to come after tour. Rain forecast though. :?

woodi,

i always luv seeing pictures of your home and how you set this up every year.

please post more of all the hustle and bustle afterwards.

tell crawford we luv him and his craftsmanship, but most of all because he is an excellent hubby for helping you get ready.

it could be worse he could be down here in michigan working on my never ending hunny dew list of woodworking projects i have for him when you loan him out to those of us less fortunate to have a hubby with woodworking skills. :lol:

hope you have an awesome weekend.

Ian: we have an account with an online bank (Internet Secure) for our soapmaker website. Their primary business is internet-based sales. We use this same account with a card-swipe terminal, which we bought from them. It's kind of an add-on; so unless you have an account already set up, it wouldn't be viable.

If you don't already have a setup like ours, you would need to deal with a banking company that offers true point-of-sale service.

digit: I can use some help planting a garden, so if you come this week, room and board in trade for your labour would about cover it!

Day 2 of show was best, cuz it was the only day (of three) that it didn't rain. Soap and jewelry sold very well. The hammock guy was disappointed that he didn't sell any hammocks, but he has more shows lined up for summertime.



I bought one chair from him after counting my profits. I usually buy from other vendors if I do better than they do; try to keep things fair.

Well....darn, this week I am running out between rain drops trying to get mine in shape.

jadiebugs1 - maybe it can be converted into a sling shot thingy. Woodi would need to it launch me out, saying I over stayed my visit and asking how did I use 5 bars of soap in 2 days??? :lol:
