I also have a very neglected Folksy shop that I have never really concentrated on, so it's interesting to compare it with etsy right now. Obviously Folksy is just for UK artists and Crafters, but anyone in the world can buy from it without having to register. I have had my one and only ready print listed in both shops so here are the stats for both for the last 7 days:
Folksy is at the top. As it is a much smaller site with less listings to wade through (and hardly any Art Dolls, hint, hint..) it is much easier to get seen so I have had a similar number of people actually come into my shop from that. Obviously I've had the etsy shop for years, so people can look through my past sales - not surprisingly perhaps, I have had 3 'Hearts' in that time, but non on Folksy.... but I guess people just have that one print to go on there.
Back to the studio move around, I bought a new piece of furniture (something idiotically expensive from NEXT) but it will house so much art stuff - storage is a huge problem in my small cottage. Why does nothing ever go smoothly in my life though? The delivery guys assembled it, they worked really hard, stayed way beyond their given time slot, but there is a problem with one of the doors which doesn't fit and swings open continuously.... not great in a small room! So now I have to wait 2 weeks for someone to come and fix it :o(
Hopefully a studio pic and wips of dolls in the next week though, I am sure I can blue-tak the door for a quick photo :o)
