I have had my online business for 2 years now, and have read endless articles, guides, blogs, advice, videos and the list goes on. I’m sure that you have as well, and that’s on top of designing and making! As a way of supporting others, I have set up Folk & Bespoke, my “store without a front”, as I want to provide an outlet for local businesses, artists etc, to sell their products, all year long, and work together to be the driving force to shopping local and shopping small, and continue to grow over time, not just peak at key shopping times.
