I am having one of those rollercoaster times when my enthusiasm for craft selling fluctuates between huge enthusiasm/new ideas/high motivation and crushing “what’s-the -point?” lows.
I’ve had a shop on Folksy ( https://folksy.com/shops/SilentCompanions ) for nearly 3 years but have never had more than a dribble of sales. I tweet, pin and use FB to promote my shop but seem to get minimal returns on my efforts. On my down days, I wonder if people just don’t like what I make.
I am reaching the point where I need to make a decision whether this is a viable pursuit for me as I really can’t afford for selling my makes to be just an expensive hobby. If I am going to continue, I need to raise my prices and commit yet more time to “making it work”. Otherwise, I am seriously considering closing my shops and giving up.
I would be really grateful if you could take a peek at my shop and give me your feedback. Thanks for reading,
