On Folksy, yipppeee!

I have just opened my little Sketchstitch shop on Folksy and I'm quite excited about it. Ive just been putting on a selection of the things Ive been making like the cushion cuddles, cards and framed textile art. I have listed 12 things now and I will just make sure I keep listing regularly and try and build up quite a big shop. Of course now I have the problem of people finding the shop and then of course do they like what I sell? (we'll see if I'm quite so chirpy a month from now). This is the link if you fancy a peek click here. Comments most welcome. Here are a couple of the cushion cuddles I have listed.

I have been thinking about my blog and how it might be helpful a year or so from now to new Folksy sellers. It will be interesting to see how things develop over the months- how easy will it be to get that first sale?, how long will it take?, how will I promote myself? and probably most importantly will I be able to motivate myself to keep going when I come across problems or will I give up?.

I must admit I had never heard of Folksy until I decided to have a go at selling myself- which is a shame when I see all the gorgeous things for sale on it. Ive already bought a little bar of soap from Stevee Cheese and it is really yummy. I bought the rose scented bar and I was kindly given the apple bar for free. Very reasonably priced too! Folksy will definitely be my first stop from now on when I'm looking for gifts for people.
