    Great idea for a Pinterest board – might have to start a “Things I want on Folksy” one myself!

    It’s a brilliant site – so easy to use and strangely satisfying as well. Also a good way of spending a coffee break under the pretext of “research” :^)

    I’ve been on for a couple of months now and really love it, great way of finding inspiration. Have added quite a few folksy items on my boards if anyone wants a look pinterest.com/sixesansevens/

    I think this is a great idea. I love making treasuries on etsy and this looks like it would be a great place to make treasuries of folksy items. (among other uses as well!) Definitely will be joining up. Thanks!

    “How it works is incredibly simple. You need to attach a little button to your bookmark bar, it’s just a case of dragging it, no technical knowhow needed.”

    hmmm…and now I feel REALLLLLLLY dim, because that would be the point I failed at! What bookmark bar??!!

    If you look in ‘View’ at the top of the browser window, usually next to ‘Edit’ and ‘History’ you should get a drop down that contains ‘toolbars’ and as you look in toolbars you should have one that says ‘bookmarks’ some people remove it because they don’t like to have too many toolbars cluttering their screen. Let us know if you need any further help :)

    Thanks for all the other comments, sorry to have shared this major distraction with you!

    Hi Hilary, I was all set to get going with my pin boards this evening but I can’t find the “bookmarks” toolbar either. My hubby’s getting all angry with me now because I’m telling him it must be there! Have followed your instructions to the letter but no “bookmark” shows up just “favourites”, “command” and “status” bars. I’ve tried dragging the symbol to all of these without any luck. Help! Elaine

      In Internet explorer the toolbar is called favourites! Hope that helps :)

    Thanks Hilary, but the stubborn PC won’t let me place the symbol anywhere on my favourites. My ageing old computer does though so I’m using that one. Elaine
