Finally Live!

My shop has finally been activated on notonthehighstreet it has been a lot of hard work and quite a  hefty initial outlay, but all the signs are there to say it was worth it as I have had a sale already, for one of my carrier bag holders, to say I am a little excited in an understatement, as I only went live at 5pm yesterday, so first sale within the first 12 hours!

What an excellent start to a Saturday morning.

Check me out My shop

Thank you both, I am a bit nervous about not making my money back but I have been spending so much time promoting and only getting the odd sale, my husband and a couple of friends are on there and have done really well, so fingers crossed and thanks for your support.

Will look forward to seeing you live Ello Design!

I am about to set up my own website this summer when I return from holiday ... finally taking the plunge. I did not find folksy to be any good and although I do sell well on facebook it is a narrow market and you have to work it to get attention from your customers.Good luck Evajeanie! H x

Hi Thank you, I haven't worked out how to sell through facebook :S but have sold a few items through folksy & etsy but not enough to get excited about! Good luck with your web site, I think you are doing the right thing as I think some selling sites are a bit saturated and it's so hard to stand out at least with your own site you have more control - keep me posted when you are live:) Linds xx
