Awesome August Artisans Daily Listers Challenge Thread 1st-31 August 2015

(Donna) #1

Good morning to the Awesome August Artisans and to all those taking part! Here’s to a month flowering with sales for us all!
I am starting this now ready for tomorrow morning as I’m heading off to Wales again shortly.
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.
There is a Flickr group for a collective of all the folksy daily listing groups, so join in with this too please

Twitter hashtag, for you twitter users are #folksygifts or #newonfolksy
For those wishing to repin, you can re-pin from my board

And here is the FB link to Maxine’s wonderful shared page

The collective reported tally for the July Listers by the end of yesterday was 210 Sales.
I will update the total if more sales come in today
Looking forward to seeing what everyone is going list!
Good luck everyone

Morning all

I have all my fingers crossed for some more lovely sales this month.

Here’s a little relist hope to have some new items to list over the next few days.

Off to a friends wedding today hope it stays dry today. Still not decided what dress to wear. :confused:

Happy Saturday all

White Rabbits and happy August to you all. Thank you Donna for running the thread.

(Patricia Smith) #6

Good morning. Best of luck to everyone in Awesome August. Here’s one I made yesterday.

(Hobbitgirlie1880) #7

Good morning.
Can’t believe it’s august. Hope it brings every one lots of sales.

I have a relist for this morning

(Stephanie Guy) #8

White rabbits! I should be around a bit more this month so am going to try to join in again if that’s ok?

(Anita Rose Designs) #9

White Rabbits to you and Happy Yorkshire Day as well. Hope August is a good month for you all. As it is sunny I thought I would show you this card again.
Thanks Donna @RedDragonDesigns for all your hard work.

(Hobbitgirlie1880) #10

I finally have a new lot for you.

In going to vanish now. So I can take some photos. Especially as it’s finally sunny enough

(Deborah Jones) #11

Morning :smile:

(Louise Grace Jewellery) #12

Hi everyone, can you believe its August already… I hope you all saw a bit more of summer than I did this year.

I’m hoping to join in a wee bit better this month now that I’m a bit more organised and should have time to make. Starting August off with this one

I hope your all well


Good morning, I am happy to be back to the daily listing challenge after 2-3 months of absence due to my other jobs (the ones that pay the bills). I have been very busy, but now it is a bit quieter so I thought I would take part in this challenge again this month. I have a few new paintings that I want to list, but today I have listed a trinket box as I am in process of rephotographing some of them and instead of just replacing the photos, I thought I would delete them and re-list then again as a new product, maybe they will be picked up by Folksy team for their guides of for their favourite finds? If not, that’s fine, it is still good to have some activity in my shop.

Now I am off to love your beautiful items. :slight_smile:

Good Morning All, a grey start that has mellowed into a lovely day here, sun came out just too late to photograph this one which might be an advantage due to sparkle overload.

Enjoy your weekend, I am off to Pride later.

(Sue Mellem) #15

Hello & Happy August everyone.
Great to see some sellers returning after a break.

Thanks Donna @ShropshireNaturalProducts for organising us again, & can I report a sale please :slight_smile:

I had late confirmation of being able to have a stall at an event tomorrow - an unusual event - The Bardic Picnic. They’re had to downsize this year as it’s being held in a temporary venue, so there’s very few stalls there, which is usually a good sign.
Hope others fairs go well.

New listing from me

I’ve started a new pinboard for the month

(Jane Paveley) #16

Hi Awesome August Artisans,
A new listing from me inspired by lush greens

(Roz) #17

A bit of a late showing form me today. I have been trying to get my house in order ready for my daughters return tomorrow as well as sorting out some things to take to a car boot tomorrow (weather permitting). I’ve also been doing a bit of preparation for some new makes and some experimentation for some new ideas so hopefully more new bits to follow soon.

For now another scarf - a long one this time!

(Brenda Cumming) #18

please can I join in again…
Hi to everyone…I hope that August is a good month for everyone
Here is my first listing

(So Sew Megan) #19

Covered in itchy spots so only able to manage a quick relist. Also my wedding anniversary so I suppose I should pay the OH some attention in between scratching!
Many ,many thanks to Rachel @Glehcar for the feedback, it made my day.
