Folksy 365! OCTOBER 2019 Daily Listing Challenge Thread! Please see the first post for joining info!

Hello and welcome the October Folksy Daily Listing challenge. Taking part is really easy, just:-

  • List your item and add your link, either just the URL copied and pasted or use the upload button to add a clickable picture.
  • Click on all of the links to view each other’s items, to ensure we all have good viewing figures
  • Promote in whatever way you can/are able to. Promotion of everyone else is not compulsory, but we do appreciate it, pin, blog, share, tweet, like, whatever you can do to get the word out about Folksy is great
  • 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 very single day, but please do not ‘post and run’.

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.

Welcome to another month and thank you to Max for all her tireless effects in keeping the thread going!

Hope everyone is ready for another month.
I am starting with a crocheted mohair and acrylic yarn soft beret, slouchy or beanie hat.

Hi,

I hope you don’t mind me joining you, I set myself the challenge of posting something new in my shop every day in October, and I thought this challenge thread might help!

Here is my listing for today, a lovely little ballerina doll decoration

Good morning.
Another day at work today - hoping it is a bit busier than yesterday, it was so quiet I spent most of the day bagging up paper for shredding!
I’m hoping the sales fairy will come out of hiding this month - she was noticeably absent last month! Thanks for running the thread this month Natalie @NOfkantsCurios (feels like a step back in time!) and thank you so much Maxine @MaxPringJewellery for all your hard work - enjoy your rest, although knowing you there will be something else on the go to fill the gap!
Heres my listing for today

Welcome @Thelittlerosetree this is the perfect place to help you with your challenge!

Roz @OrchardFelts it is indeed a step back in time, but the lovely Max and others were kind enough to step in for me when I needed a break, so it’s only fair I take back the helm!

Morning everyone :wave:t3:

Take care of yourself Max @MaxPringJewellery and enjoy your ‘me’ time.
Thank you to Natalie @NOfkantsCurios for taking back the reins.
Great to see new shops joining in. Welcome everyone :hugs:

I made a few milestone anniversary cards and listed them before my plus account ran out at the beginning of September, so there will be a few over the coming days, before I get some new stuff finished and photographed.

As I’ve been late so much this month I thought I’d be early today :joy: Then realised I’d posted it in September :joy:
I’ll be back later to love , pin, like and see all the lovely things for today.
@OrukiDesign that is so unusual and spot on perfect. @OrchardFelts what a stunning colour :+1:

Here’s my first item, a new listing and a reminder of summer on what is a very wet and dreary day here in the west country.
This is my first time for a challenge thread so I will catch up with all posts through the day.

Morning all.

Very grey and wet here in Devon, hope it is brighter where you are.

Welcome to the new comers, this challenge is brilliant for stocking new shops and kick starting promoting.
