TheCraftyBride is closing down after more than 5 years

Right ho. I made the decision last year to close TheCraftyBride and just continue with my other shop and have been working towards doing just that by selling off unwanted craft supplies where I can and using up other bits and pieces. I gave myself the deadline of the financial year to get all this sorted.

Crunch time now. Whilst I am still making the last few items under TheCraftyBride branding, I am needing to sell off as much stock as I possibly can. All prices have already been reduced.

EDIT: I HAVE REDUCED PRICES FURTHER AND ADDED ALL THE INFINITY SCARVES (THAT I TRIED TO SELL WHOLESALE ON EBAY) BACK INTO THE SHOP AT NEW LOWER PRICES - SUCH AS WAS £14, NOW £8 OR £6 ETC

Sorry to lose you, Julia, good luck with your crafting wherever you go!

I’m not leaving, as such, just closing this shop. I will still have my other shop so you will still see me around.

Oh I am glad your not leaving us completely.
Its always a big decision. I am currently findng that I sell more at farmers and craft markets.
But I still plod on here. My FB page is linked to Folksy but dont get too many sales from it.

Over the years TheCraftyBride got mangled into something I didn’t want it to be. I let it get pulled about and away from wedding items, which is why I then set up my other shop to try to get myself back on track but now that I have sold off supplies or used up supplies, pretty much, that are not suitable for the other shop, its time to let this one die a natural death. I don’t get sales from FB either.

Ok, 2 days to go and TheCraftyBride will be no more (on Folksy anyway, I still have this stock for sale elsewhere on the ‘net’) as all items come to the end of their listing on 25th April. All items are reduced to materials cost and then rounded up and I am doing a 4 for the price of 3 offer too, with cheapest item refunded prior to dispatch.

Anyone want to help me out and buy some bargains? I also have a load of beads (lampwork, glass, millefiori, semi-precious stone etc) and some sparkly fun fur yarn which I am selling off on Ebay under the seller name of “disneystitching”, if anyone is interested.

I will still be around on Folksy with my other shop, which is Draped In Lace.

Ok, TheCraftyBride is no more but I’m still here under this store.
