Hi everyone;
Can anyone help me.
I am new to Folksy and have just spent the last 24hrs looking for the right insurance cover for my shop and products.
The cheepest quote that I could find was a wopping £575pa. and with that company I can only ship to within the uk.
Please. Please tell me that there is cheeper out there and if so where can I find it…
many thanks @Adornmentstudio Natalie :blush:

I know many people do not want to cover US/Canada so read up carefully.

I’m with Ian Wallace, just renewed, and have got it for £71 incl the US.

Hi I saw this and was wondering why would one need insurance in the first place. I’m still learning how to set up and market my business and just when I thought I had it sussed I saw this thread. Can some one explain the reason behind it please?

Hi Lania

I have insurance to cover myself at any events I attend (i.e. craft fairs) and also the items I make. I used to make toys so it was extremely important to be insured. I now make decorative items but still have insurance should anything arise.

This explains a bit more why you may need it : https://www.gov.uk/product-liability-and-safety-law

Thanks for that… I’ve been making bags and coin purses with my fabrics and was eventually doing toddlers clothing etc. and it didn’t even cross my mind which is why I am so glad I read all of these emails I’m getting from Folksy Talk. Even if it inundates my email account and some of it I already know there is often something new that I hadn’t thought of yet.

Cheers Liz and everyone
