A huge thank you to everyone who has come to support as at the Christmas Markets this season so far. We’ve been so busy with new soaps, selling out fast out of our festive favourites, introducing our brand new soap dishes and busy busy busy. It’s taken me a long time to get around to updating our blog! Here are some dates for your diary for the coming weeks:

24-25 November – St Clements Festive Fair in Leigh-on-Sea 5-8pm on Friday, 11-3pm on Saturday (St Clements Church)

25 November – “I am HANDMADE” event in Leigh-on-Sea 10-3pm(Leigh Community Centre)

26 November Wickford High Street Christmas Market 12-5pm (Wickford High Street)

2 December Leigh Community Centre Christmas Fayre 10-3pm (Leigh Community Centre)

3 December Hylands House Christmas Market 10-4pm (Hylands House in Chelmsford)

23 December Christmas Farmers Market 8.30-2pm (Leigh Community Centre)

We have been hard at work wrapping soap for all of these events which seems to take forever as we do it all by hand! We’ve also had high demand for our natural cotton handmade facecloths and we’ve been making those up (each one takes about two hours) so if there’s a special colour that you have in mind or want to pre-order yours to be made up, please do email us at [email protected] or get in touch on our facebook page at www.facebook.com/beanandboy.

We hope to see you at one of our events soon! If you can’t make it, we’re still online at www.beanandboy.etsy.com and of course on all of our social channels. Join in on the conversation – we’re doing lots of fun things for Christmas advent, and will be taking part in some fun giveaways online with some of our favourite friends. See you there!
