Kathryn James replied to Kaydee Kreitlow's discussion Will be signing up for my local farmer's market - any advice? in the group Startup Central

"Do you know anybody else who sells there?  Someone who has an idea of the kind of crowd that usually shows up, the peak traffic times, the little quirks of the location?   I did a lot of farmer's markets and craft fairs when I first…"

Kathryn James replied to Kaydee Kreitlow's discussion How to store/transport/wrap finished chocolates in the group Startup Central
"If you Google "5 day cooler" you'll pull up a bunch of results.  They have better insulation than regular coolers.  It's supposed to mean that if you fill it with ice, it will still have ice in it 5 days later, but…"

Kathryn James replied to Kaydee Kreitlow's discussion How to store/transport/wrap finished chocolates in the group Startup Central
"I've never had more than I can store inside of a couple of "5-day" coolers that stay in my "chocolate" pantry.  Being in Arizona, I don't have any humidity issues, and since I work out of my home kitchen,…"

Kathryn James replied to Erica Rodriguez-Anthony's discussion Help with chocolate setting (Bittersweet) (PICS)
"Having your room temperature at 68 degrees F is the ideal.  I would suggest trying again, let the chocolate set with the room at that temperature, and see if that takes care of the problem."
