A Fantastic Place to Shop

In the five months since I discovered Folksy I’ve come across some fantastic shops and some wonderful people, so my blog is themed on a selection of just some of the many wonderful shops I’ve bought from in my time here and the variety of goods on offer there. Whether I’ve been looking for stunning jewellery, gorgeous handbags, pretty purses, beautiful cushions or fabulous scarves I’ve found everything a buyer could want, gorgeous items, excellent customer service and very helpful friendly shopkeepers! Whatever you are looking for, Folksy really is a fantastic place to shop!

Click on the images and take a look at all the other great items these Folksy sellers have to offer too!

Folksy Seller” Louisa15 (Margaret) is a well known face in the forums, we offered her a chance to put together this treasury as we really appreciate members giving us feedback from a buyers perspective and encourage them to take part in the community areas of Folksy – we hope you enjoy Margaret’s selection this week, we are certainly pleased with her experience of Folksy!

Yay! The lovely Margaret is such a wonderful lady, a great support for Folksy artisans, both in the fact that you purchase from us, but also in the wonderful way you are such an active peep in the forums, giving advice, support and welcoming new sellers. It is really appreciated by all of us!

I think you and I have very similar tastes, as you have often beaten me to a purchase from one of our favourite shops! LOL!

The face of one of the Sales fairy’s is revealed, its a bit like a Stig moment! LOL!

Thnak you so much!

Thank you for including one of your purchases from me – you had a few to choose from! Your support for folksy is amazing – as a customer and a valuable voice on the forums. Hope you enjoyed putting this collection together but how did you keep it to just 6 items – you must have been spoiled for choice!

Margaret October 22, 2010 - 7:16 pm

@Felicity – it was extremely difficult to keep it to just 6 items! I tried to show the range of things I’ve been buying, but there were some very hard choices and I felt bad about all the fabulous shops there wasn’t room to include.

To all the people I’ve bought from but couldn’t include, you’re all fantastic too!:)

Thanks very much for all the comments, I’m very touched by the nice things that have been said, you’ve all made my day!!

Jacqueline October 22, 2010 - 7:45 pm

Thank you so much Margaret for including my Fossil Coral Pendant. You have been such a supportive buyer and friend. A wonderful treasure to all of us here on Folksy.

I must also tell everyone that you are an excellent jewellery designer and are so creative in your own right! You should have a shop all of your own.

Thanks so much again,

Love Jacqueline x
