Daily Listing Challenge and Group Promotion thread - June 2024

Welcome to the June 2024 Daily Listing Challenge and Promotion Thread

I’m Mel from @aquilacrafts, and I’ll be hosting the June thread. Huge thanks to Max @MaxPringJewellery for looking after us so well during May.

It is a CHALLENGE thread which means that after listing you must visit ALL the other participants shops via their daily link AND ‘:heart:’ that listing in the shop .

The rules are outlined below. It takes a bit of time but it is a great way to get valuable extra exposure for your shop and the support of other folksy folks. There will be plenty of friendly thread regulars who’ll help you with any difficulties and we do have a lot of fun and laughs along the way.

Firstly click on each participants ‘item link’ for that day - this will take you to the listing in their shop. Then click on the :heart: just underneath price. Hearting the item will give it a brief appearance on the Folksy front page - so the item has more of a chance of getting seen (this is the main rule for joining in ).

Next share your item for the day on this thread so everyone can :heart:it for you. To do this go to the item in your shop and copy its URL at the top of the page (the line beginning with https: // folksy. com / items/). Then return to this thread, hit the blue reply button at the very bottom of this page. Next add your message and paste the link you copied - leave a space between your message and the link so it brings up a thumbnail of your item (Items can be a new listing or an existing/re-list, we don’t mind as long as it’s a different item each day).

You must be prepared to join in regularly throughout the month - missing the odd day or two is fine and of course joining in for part month is fine too, we understand not everyone can join in every single day, but please do not ‘post and run’

It’s great If you can promote a few others as well by tweeting or pinning items from the thread (just occasionally pick some items if you can) or you can create a #FolksyFriday collage and share it far and wide.

Let me know when you have a Folksy sale so we can add it to the tally, celebrate and happy dance with you.

I hope we all have a great June

It’s well worth checking out the ‘home page themes’ - they can be found on your dashboard under ‘improve your shop’ - use the tags and increase your chances of inclusion in gifts guides etc.

Good morning everyone, and thank you Mel @aquilacrafts for looking after us this month.
Had to leave the challenge last month due to a personal matter that suddenly came up, but it seems to be getting sorted now, or at least it has been sorted until the end of 2025, so I have a clearer mind again!
Anyway, here is my listing for today, a lot of you might have loved it already as I changed an older listing of a card that sold privately. I have a few like them this month, so don’t worry trying to find something else, I will be :heart: your makes as normal x

Good morning every summer seems to have arrived.

Not sure what is afoot today much depends on the traffic. We may just spend the day on the patio.

Nothing to share but getting there with some WIP.

Have a good day all.

Morning, how is it June already???
My lovely pincushion arrived yesterday afternoon Mel @aquilacrafts. Thank you so much for the little lavender sachet too. It smells heavenly. Even the postie commented on how nice the parcel smelled. I’ve still got the box sat on the side in the kitchen as it still has the scent so it’s not made it to the recycling pile in the garage yet.

I’ve got another glasses case to share today, I’m knee deep in Christmas fair prep for a Christmas In July online market but will get round to making something not Christmas related this coming week hopefully.

Lovely to see it arrived safely Louise @thestitchyroom thanks for letting me know. The lavender was from my mum’s garden and seems to be a particularly fragrant one 🪻

Mornin’ all. It’s so nice to be back. Thank you Mel @aquilacrafts for running the thread this month. Here’s to lots of sales for us all. Today’s listing is a wooden needlecase covered in beading. I sold one of these last month, much to my delight - so it was a good excuse to make another.

Good morning all! Pinch and a punch for June! Thank you for last month, Max @MaxPringJewellery, and for this month, Mel @aquilacrafts. Congratulations on starting this month off with a bang, @SusanBettyArt.
By pure chance today’s listing coincides with the theme for the day: Dinosaurs for a toddler
