April Flowers, Daily Listers Challenge Thread April 1st to 30th

DHello and welcome the April Flowers Daily Listers and to all those taking part! Here’s to a month full of marvellous sales for us all!

Please don’t forget to view each other’s items in situ in their shops, to ensure we have good viewing figures for our items and most importantly, let us know when you have a Folksy sale, so we can celebrate with you.

Please remember to post a link of your item in the thread, or clickable picture if you prefer. If we have a direct link, it makes it easier for us to look at your items.

I will endeavour to keep a tally of the month’s sales. Please let me know if I miss any.

Sorry! Only folksy sales can be added to the tally but happy to hear about and celebrate outside successes with you.

Good morning all - white rabbits, pinch and a punch etc … and watch out for those pranksters :slight_smile:

Well the surveyor didn’t stay as long as I had been told he would so hopefully that is a good sign - either that or he scarpered before the house fell down! Now we have to play the waiting game - it is getting very frustrating as I am desperate to start giving notice to all my clients but can’t until the house is exchanged as I still have the mortgage to pay :frowning:

Carol @Knittingtopia - I think March was pretty quiet for everyone, hope it picks up soon and hope you get your appointments sorted soon.

Colleen @MidnightStarDesigns - thinking of you and little Ella. It must be very tiring for you, and distressing. I hope the ECT brings some results.

Nothing new from me, as predicted, spent the day yesterday re-photographing some of my scarves - 13 done 29 to go - aaargh! Heres a re-list for now.

Happy for others to re- pin from my board - I generally try to pin everything that is posted on there.

Good morning Flowers,

Something a bit different today. I’ve had this pack of quotations printed on vellum for ages and never got around to using them. As I’d made a New Year’s Resolution to try and use up some old stuff before buying anything new, I decided to see what I could do with them. So here is the first result:

Morning flowers,
Well I now have 3 definite craft fairs and one I’m waiting to hear back from, I ended up not applying for the other two, having rewritten my cv and an artists statement, I added up the costs before even selling anything and I’m sure selling online is the way to go! I just wish I could sell my larger more elaborate things via the Internet, because they do sell in real life, just not here!
