December Stars Daily Listing Challenge Thread!

(Natalie Ofkants) #1

Good morning to the December Stars Daily listers and to all those taking part! Here’s to a month of stellar sales for us all!

Please don’t forget to view each others 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 months 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 is #folksygifts or #newonfolksy

For those wishing to repin, Carol has kindly given her Pinterest board and the link is:

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

The collective reported tally for the December Stars by the end of yesterday was 368 Sales!

Looking forward to seeing what everyone is going list!

Good morning December Stars! I hope we all have a wonderful month with stellar sales for all!

My first listing for the month is a brand new item for me, and experimental combo of knitting and crochet, hoodies and neck cosy, hopefully people will like the look!

Morning all. Here’s to a happy and profitable December, :slight_smile:

My shop is looking a bit sparse today after my craft fair weekend! I have a day off today but have so many jobs to do that I’m not sure if much crafting will get done.

Here’s one that didnt sell, (although it was on someone’s short list for a while!)


(Sandra Taylor) #5

A very good morning and happy December to you all. I’m offering 20% off today as part of cyber Monday, if you’d like to make use of the discount the code is cyber20.

Here are my listings for today

Have a wonderful day x

Good morning December Stars :star:
I hope you are all well.
Thank you Natalie @NOfkantsCurios for running this thread again this month. I know I’ve said it before, but I don’t know how you keep up with everything you do!
Can I start off by adding 15 to the tally please.
I seem to have missed all this badge worry over the weekend and I have to say I really wouldn’t mind it being there if any of us were ever featured in the gift guides, rather than the same old people every time. We all sell great stocking fillers, gift for under £5 and gift of all other shapes and sizes. We are all so active in the forums that the folksy admin must know we’re here.
Anyway, I’m not saying anything that hasn’t already been said many many times, so I’ll show you a re-list
I have clicked, pinned and loved everything for this month and some of the weekend listings from last months thread, I will try and get back to them at some point today.

Morning all,
Hope everyone is ok?
Happy December! Let’s hope we have a lot of Xmas sales this month, looks like Donna @ShropshireNaturalProducts already has!! She’s still got that fairy …lol! :wink:
Well done!

Need to start a new pinterest board for this month but here’s mine for today
Brother card first then dad!

Back later Steph xx

Liz @lizdyson did you get your cakes?.

(Donna) #10

lol Steph, I think she become nocturnal, I go to bed with no orders and when I wake up and check my phone there are orders. Maybe she’s related to the tooth fairy or people feel dirty and in need of soap in the middle of the night lol

Morning everyone - many thanks Natalie for getting us up and running again despite the tension of the last few days - as Steph @ShropshireNaturalProducts has said it wouldn’t be so bad if we were included in the Gift Guide and were part of the favoured few - but onwards and upwards I have just paid my Plus account so feel I must plod on - but very disappointing. Just a relist this morning - this little house Make-up Purse. Very busy at the moment with local orders and we have our Christmas Dickensian Evening tomorrow night - big night for the Village - this weekend 198 Christmas Trees have been put into the brackets on peoples houses - every year they increase - will look wonderful when they are switched on at 7.30 Tuesday evening. Need to set up a new Pinterest board so will pin and tweet later - Andy the Gas man has just arrived to check our boiler and fire - be back later - Maureen

(Liz Dyson) #15

Thanks for reminding me to start a new board this morning, Maureen and Steph.

@ShropshireNaturalProducts, Donna, I love your idea of people feeling dirty in the night (we’d better not go there, really). I think the sales fairy might have flown over me last night after leaving you as I feel like I’ve eaten a bar of soap this morning! Not feeling well at all. I had to ring in sick and feel awful because I was the third one today, so my boss is struggling to cover all the calls. AND to make it worse, @stephshortstationery, Steph’s cakes arrived this morning but there’s no way I can risk opening them - they look fabulous, by the way - Don’t for get to invoice me, Steph.

My chain by the metre is getting all in a mess, and I really must get round to sorting it out, but I think I’m going to go back to bed to try and sleep some of this yukkiness off. Here’s to loads of sales this month and that people land on our pages, buy the item and don’t even bother with the “subtle” gift guide button.

See you all later.


PS, Your necklace is fabulous, @JAustenJewelleryDesign, Jaqueline.

(Donna) #16

Oh no Liz! I hope you get better soon, maybe opening your cakes from Steph would make you feel better lol xx

(Liz Dyson) #17

Donna, the thought of soap and cake, however fabulous both might be, has me running for the bathroom. My only goal today is to keep my breakfast down. I had it 5 hours ago and I’m still not sure it’s safe.


(Valerie Farrell) #18

Hope you feel better soon Liz

I’m afraid its moan moan moan from me too today.
Still can’t upload pics and having to use my phone which is so small
Still got the badge on our pages.
No sales on here but lots on E…
Diabolical weekend craft fair with no organisation. Wouldn’t have gone on Sunday but we had paid.
A little Frozen purse today

Better in the flesh than in the picture
