The lovely people at Folksy mailed me today to let me know that they’d featured one of the pieces from my Folksy Shop on their Facebook page, and that it had generated lots of interest. It was the lovely Jean Power designed collar I laboured over for so long last year, and is a very stunning piece and much deserving of all the attention (although the credit really needs to go to Jean for the design). I’ve only sold one piece since I put the shop together 3 years ago, but their single photo post generated over 600 views for the item which needless to say is a very very significant uplift. No buyers, but I’ve never been convinced I want to sell it anyway……….
Even more scarily they have asked me to be a featured shop later next month. This is very exciting, but also pretty terrifying. I’m going to have to knuckle down to get the shop ready to make the most of this opportunity, which means getting as many completed items listed as possible, ordering more packaging, and sorting through all those nearly finished pieces to see what might work. Plus I need to put together stuff for the feature itself, and actually think about why I bead in the first place……scary.
But first I must must get that Stitch N Craft challenge piece finished and post the whole set off as the deadline is starting to loom and having worked so hard I can’t bear to miss out on entering. If number 2 child could finish cutting his third and most painful tooth I would be really grateful.
