When I opened my shop on here in Spring 2009 I chose Folksy because it was British, not so big I would get lost and easy to set up and manage my shop.
I didn’t chose e**y as it was not British and too big for me and I was afraid my glass would get lost on there as there is a lot of stained glass in America,
What a brilliant decision.
I made my first sale 5th May 2009 and have since made another 1562
(that first one didn’t get recorded as in my inexperience I cancelled the order when customer couldn’t use Paypal so sent me an Echeque - sorry Folksy I probably owe you about 70p for that )
I love my shop on Folksy.
Yes I did open one on e**y and it is still there but it’s been in holiday mode for the last 3 years as I couldn’t manage to maintain two at once and once I had Prime on here it seemed silly to try.
My shop is easy to manage, displays my glass just the way I want it and so much more easily than if I sold via my own website which I don’t.
I find it works brilliantly for me all through the year (I am surprisingly busy for January) and I love this friendly, helpful forum and being part of the Folksy community.
