Has anyone else had a quiet March?!

Hello :blush: :raised_back_of_hand:

Having had an excellent trickling of sales and reviews for the last couple of months - and a particularly good Feb, in March I have seen nothing!

Has anyone else expereinced similar?

It started off really well for me and then v. quiet after Mothers Day. Weird as I also sell my old clothes etc on the big auction site and it has been really dead but then picked up just in the last week - probably as people start to realise they’ll be going out soon. Here’s hoping for a good April for all :grinning:

I put the mockers on my sales early March by saying they were like buses - sold 3 seaglass pictures in a week then no buses since then!!! Did sell some fabric this week so yes here’s hoping for a better April!

Oh, yes, it’s been absolutely dire! I’ve been putting a lot of work into my shop and have only had three sales. It sounds like a general thing though, so I’m sure things will get better for everybody xxx ps. not just here, I usually have a steady stream of sales on the auction site with vintage items, but have sold very little there during March.

Yes, it has been terrible. I have also upped my posting to online markets etc & although I’m getting lots of likes & comments, no sales.

@feelfeltfound I expect that has a lot to do with it. Now the outside world is back in sight people are likely saving their money to spend on doing things or going to actual shops. Unfortunately I think we might be forgotten about for a bit until the novelty wears off.

Only had one sale since January but I never get many sales despite numerous likes and wonderful feedback. I am now supporting a local charity called Yorkshire Children’s Trust, so put extra pressure on myself :confused:

March has been my worst month in over a year…only one sale, hoping it picks up for us all.

March has been a little quiet for me after a busy February, but it’s strange times at the moment for everyone.

Yes, I had three sales in March, but only one in February, so I’m going to look at it positively. I’m on the up!

I just paid my highest ever Folksy bill by a long way which shows that, although I didn’t make my highest ever number of sales, I did have my best month on Folksy ever in terms of revenue (I have the Plus account so my bill is entirely commission fees). Happy, happy bunny :grin:
