Folksy 365 - Daily Listing Challenge Thread - October 2021

Hello and welcome to the October 2021 Folksy Daily Listing challenge.
I hope we all have fun this month and fingers crossed for lots of sales and mutual promotion!
Taking part is really easy, the rules are:-

  • After you list your item in your shop, copy the URL at the top of the page, come onto this thread and hit the blue reply button at the very bottom of the page bottom 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.
  • Click on each of the links for peoples items to view them in thier shop clicking the love button (you will find the heart button just below the add to basket) to :heart: each item, this will give the item a brief spot on the front page.
  • Let us know when you have a Folksy sale, so we can celebrate and happy dance with you.
  • You must be prepared to join in regularly throughout the month - missing the odd day is fine and of course joining in for part month is fine also, we understand not everyone can be here every single day, but please do not ‘post and run’.
  • Promotion of everyone else is not mandatory, but we do appreciate it and many of us also, pin, blog, share, tweet, like on Facebook or do a Folksy Friday collage, whatever we can do to get the word out about Folksy is great.

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.

I’m starting the thread nice and early for the early birds out there!
Thank you Maxine @MaxPringJewellery for looking after us all through September! You are a star!

My first item of the month, something to give your mug a hug!

And I have relisted this pretty agate leaf and acorn charm keyring or handbag charm.

Thanks for September @MaxPringJewellery and for taking us through October @NOfkantsCurios.

Sorry to hear about everyone who’s feeling unwell. Sounds like there’s all sorts of bugs going round and hope you all feel better soon.

Here’s hoping for a good October for all - I need to duck out during the last week of the month and thinking is probably a mistake as is probably when the sales start ramping up but hey ho!

Here’s another one made from the off cuts.

Good morning. Am hoping to join in again this month although at the moment I am severely lacking in new items! I have a couple to share but then it may be re lists I’m afraid. Hoping once the kitchen is finished I will be able to crack on with some new makes but I think that is at least a week away yet.
Kitchen units all in, just a few minor bits to finish and the decorating to do … then I have to choose the flooring (and probably wait an eternity to get it fitted!) Need to move the remainder of the contents back in from the living room so I can get some sort of normality back … unfortunately I am now working until Tuesday so won’t have any time before then.

Wishing all the poorly people get well wishes. I had both my daughters home last evening - the eldest is just recovering form a 10 day illness (sore throat, cold, fever - but negative covid test) and the youngest is suffering from a reaction to her second covid jab, so a jolly time was had by all!

Here is todays listing - a golden version of my Christmas angel

Grey and miserable out there this morning, not sure I want to get up! Busy weekend ahead… I’ve got my mum staying with us at the mo’, and tonight my son and partner come as a surprise as she hasn’t seen them for over a year. It was tricky hiding all the food in the fridge needed to cater for everyone, but I think she is still clueless. That came out wrong!! Then on Monday I have hubby’s parents coming for lunch. We all lived in the same village, so the parents all know each other. So it’s a few realists from me over the next few days as I will be mainly in the kitchen!!
Hope everyone has a good weekend. Good to see the Christmas goodies going into the shops, 86? days to go?
And to add it that is my spruce green Christmas tree tea cosie xx🎄xx

Morning everyone, thank you for all the birthday messages :grinning: yesterday didn’t go quite to plan, OH decided it was too wet and windy to be outside in the garden so I ended up trying to tidy up. Not really what I wanted to do on my birthday at all. Add to that that I’m trying to keep covid away and some of the guests work in a school and they don’t wear masks anymore. Perhaps I should have just cancelled.
Thanks to max @MaxPringJewellery for running September’s thread and thank you Natalie @NOfkantsCurios for running this months. One sale to add to the tally please Natalie
We’re off to a pumpkin farm today, as part of my birthday celebrations.
