Running My Shop Right Down

(Pauline Hayward) #1

As you’ve probably noticed there isn’t much left in my shop and that’s because I’ve decided to run it right down to rock bottom. I have a fair this weekend so what’s left will be taken to that and if there’s still some left I may not even bother to un hide them here. I don’t see any point afterwards either to list anything new. My last day of posting was going to be the 18th December 1st class and I can’t honestly see me selling anything before then with the way things are. My sales have been rediculous this year on here, so I’m going to rely on FB for my last minute sales seen as though I’ve sold much more this year on there than I have on here.
I also don’t think it’s worth listing anything next year in summer colours because again hardly anything sold this year. I’ll probably concentrate on my own website more and FB if that doesn’t get too hard for us to sell on.

Good luck with all your ventures Pauline and wishing you lots of sales on your website and FB! :smile:

Thank you Margaret. I’m not going to disappear completely, it may be the fact I will only list nearer Christmas next year and hopefully having a bit of a break might do some good.

I know the feeling, my sales are so low here this year. Last year was quite busy, even August this year was quite busy, but when things should be picking up, they aren’t. It has to be down to the changes that Folksy has made, no more recently listed, and favouring certain shops in the gift guides, so the rest of us can’t be seen. Good luck in whatever you decide to do Pauline.

Thank you @qteacup. They say a change is as good as a rest.

Sorry about that Pauline. I hope your decisions bring you good results!

Good luck Pauline, sorry to see you go, I must admit to be thinking along the same lines myself.

Hi Pauline I think we are all suffering at the moment and I am not sure what the future holds :frowning: but lets hope next year is better.
Good luck :smile:

I’m not going for good, I’m just not going to list much through the summer months it’s a waste of money for me, and there’s a chance I could be back to list next Christmas, depends on how things are.

I have to say I have been very disappointed with my shop figures and lack of sales and viewings, I know I haven’t been on here that long and my shop could probably be stocked up a little more but see little point if no one is viewing.
