Today we have a festive gift from Twinkle Bee Cottage who make beautiful homemade soap and skincare products. They took part in our last fair and their items seemed very popular with our visitors. These items make fantastic Christmas gifts or stocking fillers and will compliment any craft items you buy wonderfully!
Tell us a bit about you and what you do make:
I live In Worthing and have spent the last three years setting up my own business making homemade natural skincare products.
I am completely legal in regards to Trading Standards, Public & Product liability insurance, I use organic and fair-trade ingredients and often use locally produced ingredients wherever possible; I also pay a professional cosmetic chemist to test my products before they are sold to the general public.
I have three bee hives and use some of the beeswax and honey in my products and I also use a fair amount of buttermilk cream and goat’s milk in my soap products to produce a creamy lather.
What festive gifts and creations will you be selling at The Fairy Tale Fair?
Soaps, Lip Balms, Massage Bars/Oils, Salt Scrubs, Bath salts, Bath Melts, Face Cream Range, Lotions, Hand Creams, Foot Balms, Body Butters, candles & Gift Sets
You took part in our last Fairy Tale Fair, did you enjoy it and did you find your creations were popular with visitors?
Twinkle Bee products were extremely popular at the last fair. We sold a variety of our goods and the most popular ones were the Shea lip butters and body lotions.
Will you be taking part in other events over the festive period (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
I held a Christmas skincare house party at 50 Alinora Crescent, Goring by Sea, Worthing, BN12 4HY on Friday the 2nd November, with lots of soap, bath & body products for gifts. I also hold an open house drop-by service at this address, should anyone wish to come and buy gifts or seek skincare advice.
Twinkle Bee will also be attending the two day weekend Christmas Michelham Priory fair on Saturday the 10 November and Sunday the 11th November http://sussexpast.co.uk/events/christmas-fair
