Find me on Folksy...

I've now set up shop with online british craft marketplace Folksy- which supports British based designer-makers/crafters selling their wares. My decision was heavily swayed by meeting half the team at Renegade Craft Fair this autumn- it wasn't hard to say yes when you meet people as committed and passionate about showcasing and bringing craft to the wider community as they are. They also held a morning chat session with free cups of tea - as an avid tea drinker it would have been rude not to go.
It was there that I discovered the real face of Folksy- James, Andrew and Emily - making up half the team -the others being back at base in Sheffield. They introduced themselves and then let us do the talking- questions were fired, feedback was given and taken, advice on keywords and product descriptions, techy & SEO speak, forums, pinterest, social media, photos and so on... there was a lot shared and a lot listened to. By the end of the weekend I felt I really did know the heart of the team and it didn't take much to convince me to want to join the 'Folksy fold' and become part of a bigger community of individuals aiming to make a living from doing something they love.
