    Who’s delivering in Plymouth? It just says paper boy/girl and I’d really really like a copy x

    Hi Jesse, You can print a copy from the online version as it’s downloadable – let us know if you need help with that. We’re also awaiting a few more details from some of our paperboys and girls and will update the map once we have them.

    Nice to see it after all the anticipation – it’s a more attractive format than last year I think, though of course sadly lacking in the meerkat department :-) Good luck everyone – here’s to many festive sales!

    It looks lovely, and very professional, I think people will find it hard to resist, hopefully!

    It looks great, if there are any left (doubtful I know) but I’d be happy to take some for NI.

    I was going to volunteer but the places I asked wanted guaranteed delivery and I couldn’t do that until I’d the go ahead from Folksy but couldn’t ask for papers until I’d confirmed places to take them, god my head hurts just explaining it. Anyway, happy to take any that are left:)

    Sorry Leanne, I’m fairly sure we have distributed the lot! (apart from a few for the press etc) I think you will have to shout from the roof tops instead – or maybe just blog about it! (If you are ever confused about Folksy things email me or support@folksy.com )

    There seems to be a gaping hole in the Dorset/Devon/Somerset area! I did volunteer!

    Sampler looks great though, well done everyone!

    I have put some in a couple of places in Northampton, more to come this weekend. They can be found at The Stitch & Make Studio on Burns Street and The Community Centre in Wootton. There will be more in The Fishmarket this weekend for the Bicycle Basket Bazaar and also the new Abington Antiques Centre which has moved from Abington Avenue to Abington Square opposite the Jaguar garage. RAH!

    Er, no… I just put my hand up when you first asked on the blog (in the comments), then kind of waited for someone to contact me. Sorry, didn’t realise about the form…

    Thanks for the new locations of places to pick them up – I’ll add them to the map now!

    Sorry that you’ve missed out Flora, we put a link to a form up on the blog so that we could gather everyone’s addresses and venues all in one place. Thank you for wanting to distribute though, we really appreciate it.

    This is great!! I can see myself up there in the north of Scotland!! Just left 50 in a shop in Aberdeen that is going to hand them out. Hopefully some folksy converts can come from it. I feel quite empowered helping small buisnesses like ourselves get some more sales:D

    Some beautiful things in there – it looks really good and I think easily competes with the best that’s out there.

    Looks very professional & a great mix of items included too – REALLY appreciate the inclusion of one of my hoodies! Anyone know where the Edinburgh paper boy/girl is planning on delivering them as would love to pick up a hard copy. Jx
