Folksy 365 -Daily Listing Challenge Thread - April 2024

Welcome to the April 2024 Daily Listing Challenge Thread

Hello! I’m Susan from @SusanBettyArt, and I’ll be hosting the April thread. Thanks so much to Deborah @DebroahJonesJewellery for looking after us so well during March.

It is a CHALLENGE thread which means that, once a day, you must visit ALL the other participants shops via their daily link AND that listing in the shop .

The rules are outlined below. It does look a bit complicated but do have a go because it is a great way to get valuable extra exposure for your shop. 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 a participants ‘item link’ for that day - this take you to the listing in their shop. Then click on the for that days item - this gives the item a brief appearance on the Folksy ‘newest items’ front page - so the item has more of a chance of getting seen (this is the main rule for joining in ). You can see how to do it below

Next share your item for the day on this thread so everyone can it - to do this select your item from your shop and copy its URL at the top of the page. Then return to this thread, hit the blue reply button at the very bottom of the thread page, then add some text and paste your link (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 April

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 happy April Fools day!

Hope today starts better than yesterday when I had a spat with my 90 year old mother about whether or not she should buy a bread maker as she is having difficulty using the mixer. She intends to buy one I said really! I should probably just have said what a wonderful idea but if she can’t work the mixer…………

Have a good bank holiday for those in E&W (not sure it is one in Scotland).

The 4th in my flower border series.

Good Morning all. Happy Easter Bank Holiday Monday and Happy April Fools day. It’s lovely and sunny here so I’m going to have a coffee in the garden before the weather changes!

Thank you Susan @SusanBettyArt for looking after us this month and good luck everyone with sales.

All loved up to here - I’m determined to have some new listings this month so I’ll wait and list later if I finish the photos in time. Have a lovely day all.

A pinch and a punch everybody! Let’s hope for a successful April. Thank you for being Mum last month Deborah @DeborahJonesJewellery, and for taking over for this month, Susan @SusanBettyArt. Can I join you for jam tarts Brenda @teabreaks? I don’t think I’ve had one since I was about ten. My mother used to make them, sometimes with lemon curd, but I much preferred them with home made strawberry jam.
I actually have a new one to start the month off right: [Black lamb for a wee one]


(Lamb, baby vest, age 9-12 months, hand embroidered - Folksy)

Morning- just!
After missing the end of last month I’ve returned for April.
Lola, (poorly pussycat) has been diagnosed with kidney failure and is on a special diet and multiple tablets so vet expense will be ongoing! She’s feeling much better though and is back to hour long grooming and chasing her sister off the bed which is worth the expense.After tears from us all we’re enjoying the time we have left with her and she is being very pampered.
Yesterday was my little boys birthday-he turned 29! Making me feel ancient. We had a lovely lunch and fitted in a bit of garden tidying in the sunshine.
Today is back to the usual rain. Typical Bank Holiday weather.
So, back to business. Thank you for last month Deborah @DeborahJonesJewellery and thank you for taking over this month Susan @SusanBettyArt
I’ve a new listing today.


Now back to loving.
