  • Hello?

    Hi there

    I'm new! I make toys, cushions, ornaments etc out of vintage and top-end fabrics. You can see the kind of thing I make in my Etsy shop: kissprudence.etsy.com.

    I've joined this forum to find out about how I can promote my items, I'm getting frustrated with Etsy because I've not managed to sell anything yet! Any ideas on how I can promote myself a bit better!?

    Love Kiss Prudence xx

          Hi and welcome! Love your things - I'm also a sewer, although mostly bags at the moment! (quicker to make than the cuddly toys - I get a bit impatient!) Can't help on the how to promote yourself I'm afraid. I've tried a shop on the new site, Folksy, but no sales from it yet. Mine has mostly been word of mouth so far, but am going to try a craft fair and see how that goes

            to the forum!

            So, "KissPrudence"? Would I be right in thinking you are also a fan of a certain film from way back in which Alison Steadman plays a dippy hippy called Candice-Marie or does your name have some other connection?

                  Hi Kiss Prudence,
                  Your work is really cute, I hope that you get some sales, have you tried Facebook, you can make friends and encourage people to visit your site?

                          Mine too! I've never met anyone else who has even heard of it apart from my OH and his family who introduced me to it about 13 years ago! We regularly quote bits! We were camping last week and someone was playing a radio. Naturally OH and I started quoting the whole "he still hasn't turned it off keith" scene. It was funny to start with but when it started to get late and the radio was still playing my OH went a bit "Keith" on me! Lol

                            Going a bit Keith...

                            Haha! We go camping quite a lot and I often make my other half join in on a rousing chorus of "I want to see the zoo"! We used to have a Morris Minor traveller too just like Keith and Candice Marie!

                            I love Abigails Party too but Nuts in May is best!
