    This is my first holiday season selling soap - I've always just given it away as gifts before. ;)

    When do you have your soap ready for the holiday rush? By Thanksgiving? Before Thanksgiving?

    How many bars of soap do you have on hand and how did you arrive at your particular number?

    We've set a goal of having 3000 bars ready by Thanksgiving. I have no idea if this is going to be complete overkill or if I'm going to run short. Just curious what everyone else does.

    Thanks!

    Because my main venue for selling holiday soaps and sets is the fall craft shows, I am starting now. By Thanksgiving all the shows here are done. I overestimated some scents last year and still have some soaps I made prepping for those shows. LOL
