giveaway time!!
This will be a short post.  It's been a crazy weekend for us as the Farmer's Markets, Craft Shows, and online orders pick up.  This weekend we had a craft show on Saturday and our Winter farmer's market on Sunday.  Friday night {well, Saturday morning} we went to bed at 3a.m. and got up at 6a.m. to pack everything up and take off.  We were packaging, mixing, etc. up until bedtime.  Saturday night we had a lot of soap to wrap but, thankfully, were able to get a bit more sleep.

We had 2 great days of meeting new people, seeing repeat customers and talking to some really nice fellow-vendors.

Of course, when you go to craft shows and farmer's markets you can't go home without buying something, can you?  That was my justification to my husband.  :)  We bought 2 new handmade mugs at the craft show.  On Sunday, in addition to milk and other goodies I bought a handcrafted basket that I adore.  I have no idea what purpose it will serve, but I love it.

We brought back our salves and balms which were very popular in addition to the lotions, soap and deodorant.  We sold a ton of soap.  So happy that so many people adored the scent.  Many told us they had no intention to buy, just to stop and smell, and the next thing you know we were bagging up three or six bars for them.   We are so grateful for such a wonderful weekend.

We have 11 new Coop Girls added this week.  I have no photos of them - not even one.  I'm going to try to photograph them this week and I'll share them.  They are a mix of different breeds and are just adorable.  They will hopefully add many yummy eggs.

And last but certainly not least, we have another giveaway!!  We are giving away 2 sets of the what you see in the last photo above:  an Oats, Goats and Honey bar of soap, a Breathe Easy Balm {natural vapor rub}, a Drawing Salve, a Head-to-Toe Salve and a Lavender Honey Lip Balm.  The perfect start to winter!

Leave an answer to this question in the comment section of this post to be entered:  Why is November 2, 2013 an important date for Cobble Hill Farm Apothecary?  {if you've guessed that it's the day after the V.P's Birthday, a.k.a. my husband, you are correct, but not the answer we were looking for}.

You don't have to get the answer correct to win.

Love the mugs and the market basket! I've been looking for new mugs, too. Want something large that will go with my red Fiesta plates. Found the perfect thing when we were on vacation in WA, but at 90 dollars a mug, it wasn't going to happen. Need to order from you soon. Getting to the bottom of my deodorant. Also, really loved the soap and want to order more of those for Christmas gifts.
