As you may know I have had most of this year off! Not work, not life but beading.
A while back I decided to get back to listing on Folksy and all hell broke loose with their new criteria and I decided to leave. As a sensible business woman I just delisted everything, said goodbye on the forums and posted a message on my Facebook account.
NOWHERE ELSE TO SELL!
But, my friends at SHHIM (Supporting Handmade However it's Made) picked me up and encouraged me to reactivate my Face Book Shop, which I did.
I also remembered that Jean at Little Scruffs asked her to remind me that she wanted some mini Chritmas Trees for her bears this year. I would normally sit and wait for her to remind me as I am not very good at being pushy about my beading.
I did email her though and Yes, she would still like 5 for her bears. After I had made them I decided to show them off on my page and BANG I had two emails, Jean loves them "phew" and an order for 4 of my regular size trees!
So, it does pay to advertise.
I am in the middle of the commission so will post pictures when I have finished.
Have a good day.
