What’s been happening at Folksy in the last 7 days?
Week 6, February 8th 2016
Mother’s Day is on March 6th 2016, that’s less than 4 weeks to get your shops full to the brim with gift ideas for the most special ladies in our lives. We’re filling up our Mother’s Day guides and looking for items to feature in our Folksy Finds newsletters over the next few weeks.
Submit your suitable items on this forum thread.
This week our favourite from the best sellers list is Folksy shop Characters by Julia, we just love this wall mounted Unicorn Head!
You can see the full list here – Best Selling Shops on Folksy. We update this list every day based on shop revenue over the past seven days
Most Popular Gift Guide
Based on visits we’ve selected the most popular gift guide for this week! You guessed it! It was our Valentine’s Day Gifts Guide.
These pretty Arrow Earrings from Rock Rose Jewellery featured in the guide really caught our eye (not literally!)
You can see all of our guides here – Gift Ideas on Folksy and you can even curate your own. Find the details in this post – Wishlists on Folksy
Every week lots of new shops join Folksy.com to sell craft and designs handmade in the UK. See all the new shops to open on Folksy here – New Folksy Shops and add them to your favourites if you like what you see.
Our favourite new shop this week (It’s always a difficult choice!) is The Cornish Coaster Company – we expect they will do very well with this beautiful range of products.
It’s an amazing feeling when you sell your first item on Folksy! We’ve chosen our favourite from all the new sellers who have been lucky enough to get that first email!
Congratulations this week to Shabby Chic Decorations, we think these felt nursery mobiles are beautiful and look forward to seeing more milestones from you in the future!
We think the wonderful shop keepers on Folksy.com are worth celebrating, especially when they reach such fabulous milestones. We hope you enjoy receiving the little messages we send out every time you pass a new milestone.
This week we’ve picked Hole in My Pocket from all of the milestones reached with a brilliant 600 sales clocked up, these hand painted ‘Ships Crew’ Russian dolls are fabulous!
Are you approaching a big milestone in numbers of sales? Take a look at the High Fives Forum thread to see more sellers who are celebrating this week! We feature 3 sellers who post on this thread in the Folksy Seller newsletter each week.
