Well, I took the plunge and sent in my application to become a registered business. This means that starting April 1 I will have to charge a 6% sales and use tax for products sold in Connecticut. I am quite excited to become "official". I have spent about 2 weeks pouring over books and the Connecticut government website. I found two books to be really useful for this transition: Soapmaking for Fun & Profit by Maria Nerius and Handmade for Profit by Barbara Brabec.
I also received my water resistant labels today! I purchased them from Brown Kraft Labels just 2 days ago! It is always exciting to receive a package in the mail. :) I will be spending tomorrow trying to make some pretty designs for deodorant, scrubs and lip balm.
