Front Page!

Unbelievably for the second time this month, I made it onto the Front Page of Etsy in this gorgeous treasury made by PoorRobin



Mine is the Purple and Green Memory Wire bracelet, first item in the second row. I don't care what anyone says, the views and hearts you get from your 5 minutes of fame on the FP, is great exposure!

Last night I decided to bite the bullet and open a shop on MISI. This is another British based handmade website that I have been reading really positive things about. At the minute I only have a couple of things listed in my shop but I'm hoping to get more listed this week. As with any new site, it took a bit of navigating and after I'd listed my first item, I realized with horror that I had listed it at 61p - the postage cost! Eventually after a bit of help from Overspill I worked it out!

Also, don't forget that I'm offering my blog followers 20% off in my shops this week, finishes on Friday

  1. Wow congratulations.

    Just a quick question, and one that will probably be obvious when you fill me in, but how do you know that a purchase if from a blog follower and then give them 20% off.

    I would love to use this concept to reward people who follow me too.

  2. hi, the only place i've advertised this is on my blog, so it should be easy enough to see if they follow it. in my etsy shop there is a 'message to seller' so if they put 'blog follower' in the message i will either refund the 20% or send a new paypal invoice. with folksy, they can send me mail with the same message

  3. Okay so If i did this on my site I would need to change my google checkout invoice giving discount, and need a message to seller or special request option once item is clicked to purchase and sent to me where they can write blog follower.

  9. Your pieces are most definately FP worthy - should be there more often. The only things of mine that have made it, I generally wonder "why????"


    Your welcome to any help on MISI - I nearly closed my acct there after the first time I tried to list. It does get easier though - promise!

  15. Congrats on getting FP on Etsy, I've not managed that yet! Good luck with Misi too, it didn't work for me when I tried it, although I may try again now the standard of work is more comparable to mine. (Not meant as a bitchy comment - just my work was more expensive than most of the rest so didn't get a glance).
