It's been a busy week or so. My friend Helen who started Haggiz with me nearly 4 years ago has decided, after a lot of soul searching, that she no longer wants to sew with a view to selling her things.  She is going to make things for herself and her home without the pressure.  I'm torn really,  although I enjoy going to craft fairs with her and enjoy not having the full responsibility of getting things done on time, it will be interesting to take this business to where I want to take it, with no excuses of taking anybody else into account... hmm we will see.  In the meantime I have been finishing orders, re-ordering stocks of cards, fabric, felt and packaging, so I'm all set.  It's really quite exciting.

I also made chocolate cake because I need the energy!  I love the daffodils behind the cake, another £1 bunch, this week they have a gorgeous orange frill inside, every week they have been different x

  1. There's no reason why you can't go it alone, it depends on how serious you want to be about your selling :) If you can do it get yourself a Facebook page, a lot of people I follow do this and it shares all your items with possible buyers. Folksy is fine but sometimes you need a little more "advertising" to get you going :) xx

  2. Thanks for your advice, I do have a facebook page but probably don't do enough with it, because we stock several shops and do various fairs during the year this keeps us quite busy, so I need to think if I want to stay on this route or to try to sell more online Jx

  3. It's great that you had a partner while you were setting up and gaining confidence. A good basis upon which to develop and branch out as you see fit. Good luck!
