Hi all!

I’ve only recently activated my shop on Folksy and already am sharing a couple of high fives today, as I’ve just taken my first two Folksy orders to the post office, and both sales were items that were featured on the Made in the Midlands Gift Guide, so very thankful to be included!

Maker Happy Dance!

I set myself the goal of reaching 75 folksy sales by this year end, and have smashed the target with 90 sales so far, and with a few more days to go. Looking forward to my 100th! Going to sit down this afternoon with a cup of tea and pencil in next year’s aims. Good to have a goal to work to.
Thank you to everyone who has got me this far xx

I’m celebrating getting my first feedback on Folksy - all my customers to date have been guest buyers so were unable to leave any feedback. Lovely Harriet from @BirnbeckDesign bought some earrings & she’s left me such a fab review - I’m chuffed :grinning:

Comment:Love these earrings so much. They are beautiful and I’ve been wearing them since they arrived! Denise has a great Folksy shop with lighting quick delivery and is a pleasure to buy from. Her products are different to anything else I’ve seen and look beautiful on. I will definitely be coming back!

We have a great new pop up space in York for 3 weeks. Just coming to the end of week 2, and it’s looking good, with fellow Folksy shopkeepers @PetraBradleyPrints @jobagshawjewellery and @BoyneWh
Thanks to Blank Canvas York and The York conservation Trust for making this possible.

I CANNOT BELIEVE IT…

After what seems like eternity I made my first sale on Folksy and hopefully many more to come.

What drew me to Folksy was that it was a UK platform and that it has a real sense of community… (now I have looked and read hundreds of posts).

It is nice to see so many people chatting and sharing ideas.

I want to share my first sale with you all as I am ever so excited, I would love some feedback too if there is anything wrong on my page or if you have any advice to share or just maybe I am missing a certain style in my decals. Love to hear your thoughts XXX @folksy

Would love you to share any advice and well done for reaching your goals :slight_smile:

Tanya, if only I knew, I would market it!
For me, Instagram works. I promote continually, both there and less frequently here on Folksy. I read the forums and contribute when I can.
I take all the advice folksy give about description, tags, photos. Always tweaking my tags.
I am totally realistic, and know I am a very small knitter in a massive world. Somehow my customers find me, but I don’t have any special formula. Promote, and promote some more. There is a thread here titled something like - if you could share one tip with new sellers, what would it be, makes good reading.
Congratulations on your 1st sale, hope you have many many more, Suzzie x
