Christmas Gift ideas on Folksy

I’ve recently opened a Folksy shop. I’ve been pondering it for about a year but decided that since it’s Christmas I’d give it a whirl. Folksy is like Etsy, but based in Sheffield. The majority of shops are based in the UK. So if you like Etsy but don’t want to pay the international postage give Folksy a go.  Here are some of my favourite finds.

About Folksy

Folksy was created with the aim of showcasing the work of UK designers and makers. James Boardwell and Rob Lee came together to build Folksy in 2007 after being inspired by the energy in the craft communities in the UK as well as North America and Australia. At the same time the web was offering ways to crowd source solutions to problems and we were inspired by the work of Clay Shirky amongst others in pointing out that the web could lower the cost of doing things as a group. The site launched in summer 2008, employed its first member of staff in 2009 and has since risen to become the most popular UK site for handmade gifts and supplies.
