I mention selling my soaps & lotions at Lynn’s a few times a year so I thought I’d show you what her place is like.

lynn front

This is the front of her house which we don’t use for the sale.  However, this fall she had the Friends of the Library group selling pies, desserts, & drinks on the front porch.  I never got a chance to go see it, but she said it was beautiful with their tables & decorations.  They did very well and sold out of pies by 2!

She sets up a shop in the carriage house behind their home about 4 times a year and kindly lets me (& several others) sell our wares too.  In exchange, she gets a cut of our sales and we work a 4 hour shift to help with the check-outs.

Here is the view from the carriage house, looking at her back door. (Her dh is the wonderful gardener!)

I love that she lets me use this cabinet for my soaps & lotions!

And a few more shots so you can get a feel for the place:

lynn 8I think her prices are good.  A wreath like this is about $32.

lynn 9The big wreath to the left was $55.  The small basket (flat with handle) with arrangement on the left end of the white bench was $18.

The shop was open this weekend Friday – Sunday and will be open next Saturday.  We had good crowds when I worked on Friday afternoon and they were swamped all morning.
