Open for business

The eagle-eyed among you will have noticed a new link on the right hand side of the page… yes, my Folksy shop is open for business. It’s not fully stocked yet, but I thought I would make a start. So far there are just a few string bags (bling and otherwise) and a roosting pouch, but there is more to follow.

Listing is quite time consuming and I still have items to photograph, but at least it’s up and running. I would especially like to thankย ItwasJudithย who bought a rainbow string bag off me the other day and thus provided the seed funding to start the shop… she also reminded me about washing instructions!

Anyway, I’m feeling pleased to have made a start.

  1. Congrats on the start of your shop – that roosting pouch is gorgeous! I love the header of socks also – very eye catching. Setting up a shop does take an enormous amount of time doesn’t it – but once done, it’s done. Best wishes with it all!

    • Thank you… I’m slowly refining the text, but I really wanted to get something up and running as I’ve been putting it off for SO long. I’ve also amended my ‘about’ page here on the blog, next I need to set up a dedicated Pinterest board… so much to do!

  2. This is brilliant! I’ve just registered with folksy so I can favourite your goodies ๐Ÿ™‚ Best of luck.

  3. Congratulations! I love the look of the Folksy logo, a perfect blend of old and new school and a big hint at the deliciousness it hides. SO over the “marketers” finding market places and flooding them with crap ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  4. Many congratulations off to check your shop out now ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Good on you and very best of luck with your shop!! Love the little roosting pouch too, that is too cute.

  6. It’s looking very professional. Love the sock header; I think you need to show a few pairs for sale too, even if the photos are of your own socks, just to give people the idea…

  7. Many Congratulations, I hope it’s a huge success.

  8. Thank you for the mention and for the lovely multi-colout bag – I’m sure it will make my friend very happy when her birthday comes, and cheer up her grey winter days ๐Ÿ™‚
    Heading now over to Folksy to check it out… All the best with the new shop!

  9. Well done for starting up at last, and for making that first sale in order to do so!
    I really love your new roosting pouch, and envy your ability for making socks!
    As soon as you start selling them, do let me know! ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. Congratulations, Jan! I joined up so I could favourite your shop. Love your socks and your bags, and that roosting pouch is so sweet. All the best to you with this. ~ Linne

  11. I think you were smart to just jump in and get started–it’s real now! I don’t know much about Folksy but I hope it treats you well!

  12. Good luck with the sales!

  13. Wonderful! It looks great and yes, you should be feeling very proud of yourself – it’s a big achievement ๐Ÿ™‚ xx
