Cock-a-hoop!

OMG! I can't believe it! I am floating right now! Let me explain ...

Last week I had a meeting with a guy from Beamish Open Air Museum with a view to selling my soaps in the gift shop. I showed him my full range of products, along with wholesale prices, turnover times, production levels, etc, and he said he'd get back to me in a couple of days as he had other soapers to see.

Well, a week passed, plus another couple of days, followed by a phone call to the museum with a message for him to ring me when he returns to the office ...

... well, I reckon you've guessed the rest. He has just been on the phone and we've closed the deal. I am now official handmade soap supplier to Beamish Open Air Museum! Wahoooo!
I'd better get soaping when I've scraped myself off the ceiling!

    Thank you, Amy! I'd hardly say I'd be raking it in, but it's a big step forward for me! I expect it will start slowly as they don't open until February, and then the number of visitors will steadily increase as the summer sets in. Then they close in October. I won't know how many they will want to start with until after the New Year.

    I'm glad you liked your fizzy! Personally I don't like fizzies! LOL Can you believe that?! But I love handmade soap! ~ Lisa
