Do you sell your bar soaps?

Do you sell your bar soaps?

If so, to who?

How? To friends? At craft shows? To commercial shops? Online?

Share your experience and your advice, please!

What kind of insurance do you have to hold for soap making?

I can second that Yikes for insurance!

I can second that Yikes for insurance! I do a bit of selling where I work to co workers. Got 'em lining up ) See I started off bringing in samples . Well one needs to know if what they are making will sell right?  Then they do! . Thinking of taking on a farmers market or fair maybe next year. Need stock! :) Takes Time! Have a site eyed on etsy but again waiting for insurance. Takes a lot of time to get a soap business off the ground. Unless you happen to already be filthy rich :) Maybe I should find a Sugar Daddy :) Just kidding! Still refining recipes and wrappings. Decisions decisions! lol! This place is nice.

Not yet!

Not yet!  I've am still a relative "newbie"; only been soaping for a little over a year.  Feeling very comfortable with my soaps and am beginning to experiment with bath/body products.  Have checked into insurance.....YIKES!  Can't see at this point that I would sell enough products to justify the costs.
