    Buying Supplies IRL?

    Post by soapgirl on Sun Oct 03, 2010 9:41 am

    Hey Peoples Very Happy

    If you were able to buy (some) soap making supplies in a walk-in shop what would you prefer to be able to buy?

    I am opening a retail store later this month and I am considering selling just a few supplies on the shelf and would love to know what types of things YOU would like to see if you walked in.

    Thanks,
    Kelly

    all of it! lol

    i would want to be able to walk in and buy all the basic ingredients to be able to go home and make a batch of soap. I wouldn't expect a full range of butters, FOs, luxury items like that, but basic oils, maybe a few colours... and see how it goes!

    What I am going to do is start with just a small amount of supplies and build up once I get more funds.

    What I plan to have to begin with is:

    -Australian pure clays
    -Micas
    -Cocoa Butter
    -Shea Butter
    -Fragrance Oils in 25ml and 50ml

    I am also looking into stocking lip balm base and tubes/pots as well as flavour oils. Maybe in DIY kits.

    DIY kits is an awesome idea.
