July Summer Listers Daily Listing Challenge Thread. 1st to 31st July 2015

(Donna) #1

Good morning to the July Summer Listers and to all those taking part! Here’s to a month flowering with sales for us all!
I am starting this now ready for tomorrow morning. I’m not sure of last month’s collective total.
Please don’t forget to view each other’s 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 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.
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 are #folksygifts or #newonfolksy
For those wishing to repin, you can re-pin from my board

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

The collective reported tally for the June Jetsetters by the end of yesterday was Sales
Looking forward to seeing what everyone is going list!
Good luck everyone

Good morning Summer Listers :sun_with_face:
I’m a bit more awake now I’ve had my iced coffee lol :smile:
Let me start by showing you a re-list

I’ve had to make a hard decision over the last couple of day’s. I don’t know if some of you remember last year I said that my fragrance oil lady was closing her business? As a result of this I’m going to have to close Shropshire Natural Products as I can’t really afford to have safety tests done on all my products with oils from a new supplier (it would cost thousands) :cry:
But fear not I’ll still be here with Red Dragon Designs :slight_smile: I’ll be expanding that side of my business to include embroidery supplies as well as personalised items :slight_smile: and may even move into fabrics :smile:
I’ll carry on selling the cosmetics until my supply of oils runs out. They should last until Christmas as least so I’m not going just yet :smile:

Hi listers.
I’m glad to hear your husband is better Donna @ShropshireNaturalProducts
Thanks for starting another monthly thread.
I’m hoping this month with be fun.

it’s my gorgeous nephew’s birthday today. He’s 6 and I can’t believe it. I was at my sisters till 11.30pm helping to get his party ready for after school today.
It was fun we put the paddling pool up and filled it and me and my sister had a splash.
That was at 10pm.think her neighbours must have thought we were Crazy.

I’m just waiting for someone to paint my front door then I’ll be off to the council to sort things with my stupid neighbour.

But I have a fun bookmark for now

Sorry you’re having to stop selling your natural products they all sound good enough to eat, I’m glad there are no safety tests required for card makers (it would be a nightmare testing all my card stock etc. :scream: ) i hope Red Dragon Designs takes off to make up for losing your other business.

Here is my last (maybe) listing for today

No sign of the men who are ment to paint my front door. If they aren’t here in an hour I’m going to go.
They said they would be here by 8.

Awww Donna @RedDragonDesigns (will have to get use to using this name)
I’m sorry to hear you will be closing you’re other shop. I’ll have to get bits before you close. Cos I love the soap I brought from you.

Good afternoon all. Thank you for running this thread again Donna @RedDragonDesigns :smile:

Thank you everyone for your lovely comments :slight_smile: I have ordered in a last load of oils so I should be ok for the next few months, which will give me time to build up Red Dragon :slight_smile: and I do sell more embroidered things on eb*y than I do natural products at the moment so the transition to that shouldn’t be too hard. I will still be making things for myself and friends, I just wont be able to sell to the general public. So if you ever want anything just give me a shout :smile:

(Stephanie Short) #18

Happy July everyone! Hope it’s a good month for us all x
Thanks Donna @RedDragonDesigns thanks for your hard work :heart_eyes: and sorry to hear about the shop closure but wishing you every success with this one…onwards and upwards !

Just a relist from me today, trying to get new items made…in amongst everything else going on😁

Pop back later steph xx

aw what a shame about your natural products! My friend at market also stopped because the testing was getting just too expensive and complicated.

Best of luck

I was a numpty again and posted on the old thread… I do this at least 4 times a year when the months change over!
