January Garnets Daily Listing Challenge Thread!

(Natalie Ofkants) #1

Good morning to the January Garnets Daily listers and to all those taking part! Here’s to a month of glittering sales for us all!

Please don’t forget to view each others items in situ in their shops, to ensure we have good viewing figures for our items and most importantly, let us know when you have a Folksy sale, so we can celebrate with you.

Please remember to post a link of your item in the thread, or clickable picture if you prefer. If we have a direct link, it makes it easier for us to look at your items.

I will endeavour to keep a tally of the months 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.

There is a Flickr group for a collective of all the folksy daily listing groups, so join in with this too please:

Twitter hashtag, for you twitter users is #folksygifts or #newonfolksy

For those wishing to repin, Carol has kindly given her Pinterest board and the link is:

And here is the FB link to Maxine’s wonderful shared page:

The collective reported tally for the January Garnets by the end of yesterday was 325 Sales!

Looking forward to seeing what everyone is going list!

Morning all
Happy New Year!

Thanks Natalie @NOfkantsCurios all your hard work does not go unnoticed :blush:

Wishing you all a successful, healthy and happy 2015!!
Hope you all had a good evening and you are not too worse for wear :wink:

I was in bed before midnight, however I did manage to stay awake throughout the film… Tower Heist with Ben Stillar and Eddie Murphy, excellent, highly recommended !!

What are your plans today? We are off to mams as Cameron’s always first foot then we’ll probably pop for a coffee in Thorntons!
Up at six this morning …late for me! Managed to get some cheese,potato and sage and onion scones made and some suet dumplings for mam so she can pop them in the freezer to keep…well if Aunt Bessie can…lol!

Anyway I’m all caught up on yesterday’s pins and I’ll start a new board for this month, and another few from my sale
Catch up later and enjoy your day, Steph xx

Morning all. Had a quiet night in with my eldest daughter, (youngest and husband both out partying but not really my thing!) We managed to stay up to see in the New Year though.

I am going to leave my sale collections open for one more day just in case someone was wanting to buy last night when the site was inaccessible but will delete them tonight.

I managed to get some photos of this neck warmer this morning so have just listed it.

All the best for 2015

Happy New Year everyone! And thank you @NOfkantsCurios for keeping us going!

My son Freddie is 10 today, so it was just like a repeat of christmas morning - up late wrapping presents and up early for him to open them! Mr Oakapple is asleep on the sofa now :wink:

Love that little penny @paperchainsandbeads Max, good idea for a birthday present.

@stephshortstationery Steph, those cards are lovely, my in-laws really liked liked the Nan & Grandad one I got for the kids to give them.

I have a January sale in my shop - trying out the new discount codes so hopefully it will work. The code is JAN15 on everything including my fabric

Have a good day everyone

I’m relisting this Pencil Case this morning with lovely old-fashioned typewriter keys - anyone else remember them? !!

(Rachel) #11

Happy, healthy and prosperous new year to you all, I finished wallpapering one wall of my bedroom, had take away pizza then watched the film “up” which I embarrassed myself by crying like a baby at - tut. Thank you Natalie for helping me be organised into the new year with my listings. I will be back later to list. Rachel.

Morning Garnets

Happy New Year to everyone, fingers x its a good one for us all.

We had a snuggly night in, film, nibbles, drink - were’t the fireworks in London amazing?

BIG thanks to Natalie @NOfkantsCurios- your hard work with this thread is soooo much appreciated.

Here is another one from my new parchment range, for those special occasions/people

Morning and a Happy 2015 to all the Garnets!

Thank you Natalie @NOfkantsCurios for running this thread again, it’s greatly appreciated

I stayed up till around 2 am, so no early start for me today.
Ate too many chocolates, but I did have grapes and clementines to counteract them. More of a gannet than a garnet

Carrying on with my accounts today, but first adding a relist with new photos

(Tracey Christie) #17

Good morning and Happy New year to one and all. My shop has been closed for the last month due to me selling nearly all my stock in a real high street store over Christmas, I am now back open and filling it with wonderful new bags. Here’s to a very productive and successful 2015

(Rachel) #18

Oh tut I nearly spilt my coffee everywhere laughing at the gannet garnet joke - brilliant (and I so know the feeling)

(Stephanie Guy) #19

Morning Garnets, what a lot of lovely listings to look at this morning!

I have a new ACEO sized painting (2.5 x 3.5 inches)

Afternoon Garnets ( I like gannets too : ) Happy New Year

We had a cosy night in , but still didn’t get up early- my son has been out all night (still not reappeared , so I don’t suppose I got much sleep)

I have these today , although I actually listed them by mistake last night.

Will pin to
