Your own Folksy Shop Widget

If you have a blog or website you can display the items for sale in your Folksy shop using the Folksy Shop widget. There are lots of options – you can have the shop widget as a column in a blog sidebar or install it as a mini version of your shop on its own page. It’s easy to upload –  just head over to your Folksy shop dashboard and choose the option you’d like to embed > https://folksy.com/dashboard/widgets

Here are a couple of examples showing how other Folksy sellers have used it on their own blogs and websites:
