How did it all begin?
I have always been creative and love making gifts for family and friends. I have a science background, working as a laboratory technician for the past 30+ years so it seemed natural for me to combine my professional and creative sides to become a soap and balm maker.
What do you like most about being a stallholder?
Meeting people (both customers and fellow marketeers). I love sharing my passion for natural hand made, hand sewn, hand grown products with like minded people.
What do you like least about being a stallholder?
Not much, even when we are experiencing a ‘slow market’ I find networking with fellow marketeers rewording.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years time?
Retired from my real job as a lab tech and doing a few markets a month to supplement my superannuation..
What one piece of advice would you give to a new stallholder?
Don’t put too much pressure on yourself & enjoy the experience. You’ll make some fabulous new friends and make a few bucks if your lucky!
