Shameless plug....

I've bitten the bullet, taken the bull by the horns, jumped in the deep end and.....um......other similar phrases. I've opened up my own little shop on folksy. Yay - how exciting!

Its got these:

And these:

And these:

And these:
And these:

(For those of you who don't know, folksy is similar to etsy but is based in the UK and prices are in UK pounds.)
I opened the shop a couple of weeks ago but have now finally got round to stocking it properly. I'm really pleased because a few of people have added it to their favourite shops already. I think the first couple of sales must be the hardest because at that stage there is no feedback on you to reassure buyers.

If you'd like to take a look round then click here or on the folksy button on the right hand side. I'd love it if you would. No pressure to buy anything of course, but any feedback would be gratefully received. Any views on the pictures, descriptions and, in particular, the prices, would be very useful. I promise not to be offended! Its so hard to decide what to charge. I started off by looking at other peoples products to see what they charged but that confused me even more!

I've also been thinking about setting up an etsy shop but can't decide whether to or not. I think more people would see the products if I did but I'm not sure if its worth it with the current exchange rate. I think I'll see how things go on folksy - can't wait until I make a sale!!

Hope you are having all having a lovely bank holiday weekend. I'm off to some gardens and a craft fair tomorrow so hoping to come back brimming with inspiration :o)

Well done you! You've been busy. I hope it all goes well for you. I think what you do is lovely so they should start flying out the door in no time.

I love the monsters and octomonsters! Your shop looks good and the prices look very reasonable. I'm based in Bournemouth and I've got an Etsy shop but I think I might be better off with a Folksy shop - it's hard to tell! Billions of people on Etsy but most of them have shops so it's hard to get noticed. Good luck with your shop :-)
