Some fun ideas for gatherings:

* Have soap or candlemaking project demonstrations!
* Invite guest speakers to talk about marketing & selling ideas, display ideas, etc!
* Hold soap or candle swaps!
   Example:  Each person brings 1 votive or 1 soap bar to put in the swap box, then everybody reaches in and gets one
   (hopefully not their own!).
* Have an ugly soap or candle contest!
* Have a recipe swap!
   Example:  Each person types up a sheet on a candle or soap project they specialize in, and brings enough copies
   to hand out for everyone at the gathering.
* Set up a "sniffy table" with scent samples for everyone to smell!  (don't forget the coffee grounds!)
* Have a "name that scent" contest - blindfold the sniffers and see if they guess the scents!
* Have a soap or candle trivia quiz and give out door prizes dontated by sponsoring suppliers!
* Hand out brochures, cards, coupons, and samples sent by sponsoring suppliers!
* Take photos of the gathering to put on your website to encourage more visitors next year!
