Barang Chick's Epic Marketing Fail

Post by prahocalypse now »

A barang chick who is trying to sell $60 worth of soapmaking ingredients has made the fatal mistake of targeting the Kampot barang community.


From the Kampot noticeboard:
Sylvia Merton


ALL YOU SOAPMAKERS......
I have for sale
6 kilo. Ready made melt and pour soap base. No chemicals
1/2 kilo beeswax pellets
2 bottle of hypoallergenic shampoo base
1. soap mould.
ALL for 60$
Look how much you can make from this, just add colour and scents .

That last post is a beauty. Selling soap in Kampot would be the toughest gig in the world surely.

Might get it for personal use.... Looking for a weekend project and have never given a second thought to how soap is made. But have no clue if the price is reasonable.
