Do you 'Favorite' shops or

(Jan Ryan) #1

do you just favorite items?
I like to click the Heart on my fave shops, it’s nice to see their new items when I sign in, I also like to favorite individual items, it’s great to see them on the front page when I’ve faved them.
I love it when people click the heart on one of my items, so I like to spread the joy.
Favoriting items doesn’t seem to be as big a thing over here as it is on other sites, what are your thoughts on this?

I don’t favourite shops just items (although I tend to just buy the item unless I’m looking at it as a present and want the input from the other half on it). By not favouriting shops that bit of the signed in home page shows me a random selection of shops so I get to look at things that I might not otherwise see.

I do favourite shops I like. If I need something that might make a good gift for me or someone else it’s nice to have the list of favourite shops to browse through

If I like an item I will but that doesn’t mean I’m in the market to buy it just that I think it’s lovely.

I’m the same Eileen, I :heart: things because I like them, not necessarily because I’m going to buy them. Some of it is about supporting or even encouraging people.

I often ‘favourite’ things and shops - it’s like paying someone a compliment and also let’s me see more of their nice things as they’re added. I think it’s great to encourage other makers, but I only do it when I genuinely like something, so it is a real ‘like’. I don’t expect people who ‘favourite’ my things to go on and buy them, it’s just nice to know they like them.

I like items and shops…but only when I genuinely like the items or shops, and as has been said, it doesn’t mean I want to buy it, just that I like it and appreciate it…

It’s always a lovely feeling to see someone has favourited my shop. Makes my day :blush:

I favourite items and shops and see it as a way of supporting fellow sellers as well as being a way to find items again x

I favourite the items I like and, if I see a shop I particularly like, I’ll favourite the shop. Mostly it’s just because I like what I’ve seen but occasionally it’s so that I can find it again if I decide I might want to treat myself :smile:

Yes, I do the same, favourite items I love and favourite shops if I like there items and maybe to come back and buy from at a later.

I favorite items and shops with the intention of giving the shop owner a confidence boost although if someone favorites an item from our shop it does seem lovely but I think ‘can you buy it then please?’!

I do favourite shops usually ones that catch my eye and that I want to re look at another time.

Individual items are a mix of items I just like and some I would like to buy.

You should favourite as many shops and items as you can as it increases views to your own shop and also helps other sellers

I’ve got a lovely collection of favourite shops and items. I often go through them when I want something and do actually buy quite often on here. I really enjoy looking at the new items from them everyday. I pretty much only favourite things I genuinely like. :smiley::sunny:

Can do pretty much any shape if I have an outline. The biggest problem is finding a design that works on it!! And I just had a look…you are a funny old shape!!! Still if you are serious let me know and what design you would be thinking of and I’ll let you know if I can do it!! x :mushroom:
(have to use that toadstool now I’ve found it!!)
