We held the Crafty Folk weekend last weekend and I'm happy to report it was a lot of fun and a successful event!  We had lots of team members and lovely Etsians stopping by to chat, browse and buy and we would like to thank you all. 

Special thanks go out to our curators who donated their time to run the BNR;- Hannah of Squintessential, Jen of Miss Bohemia, Zoe of Top Floor Treasures, Caroline of the UK Christmas Store, Louise of Loutul, Lesley of The Woolly Knitter and our resident chatterbox Liz of Mad Mum Knits for her support (as always) and keeping us company throughout the BNR.


As well as being the main organiser of this BNR, Hannah also generously donated 2 giveaway prizes from her website Squintessential and we can now announce that the 2 winners!

Crafty Folk BNR Shopping Weekend!

Crafty Folk BNR Shopping Weekend!

It's been a long time, but the Crafty Folk BNR is back for the weekend and just in time for some Christmas shopping!  We have a preview of the shops in this BNR treasury and we will be open from 4.30pm (GMT) until 11.00pm (GMT) today and tomorrow. (See explanation at the end of this post)

The 16 shops below are all featured in this BNR and this will be automatically updated as the featured shops are replaced.

Hannah of Squintessentials is also generously providing giveaway prizes and offering everyone who buys in to the BNR a chance to win a purse with handmade jewellery inside.  We will be hosting a raffle once the BNR ends we will announce the name of the 2 winners. 

Giveaway Prizes by Squintessential



1) The BNR is open to anyone who would like to buy in, not just members of the team.  If you are an Etsy seller, but also shop on Etsy stop by for some great handmade goods, supplies and vintage treasures.

2) The BNR will be open from 4.30pm to 11.00pm (GMT) Saturday 1st & Sunday 2nd December.  

3)The event is promoted in our team, on our blog and facebook page and can help to get your shop noticed and increase traffic.  It is hoped that everyone will help with promoting and many of the featured shop offer discounts and promos!

4) There are 16 featured shops in the BNR.  If you see something you would like to buy from one of the shops and complete your purchase (see the BNR for minimum spend), your shop takes the featured spot of the shop.  

Anyone who wishes to buy needs to check their chosen shop is still available by checking the previous posts and then posting a message stating who they would like to buy from in the treasury.  The curator will post a message to confirm for you to go ahead and make your  purchase.  Once this has been done you need to leave a comment stating which shop they have bought from and the transaction link.  Your shop will then replace the one you have bought from in the treasury and vice versa. 

5) If you have any questions - just stop by the BNR and ask the curator

* All are welcome to stop by to chat, help promote or shop *
