I'm also thinking about opening a Toadstool Hollow shop on folksy.com. Folksy is like etsy.com, except it's a British website, so everything is listed in £'s. It isn't as big as etsy yet, but that also means your items are less likely to get lost 5 minutes after you list them...
It would be nice to be able to sell in £'s and on a smaller site.

hehe. Reached my first sales target! Just reached 10 sales :) My next target is 15! Not quite as high as my other shop, but we all have to start somewhere!

I think 2 minutes of your time every year is really not alot to give. I really do not understand workplaces that do not uphold this tradition. This is my favourite WWI poem;
Flanders Field WWI
The War Sonnets: V. The Soldier
If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
A dust whom England bore, shaped, made aware,
Gave, once, her flowers to love, her ways to roam,
A body of England's, breathing English air,
Washed by the rivers, blest by suns of home.
And think, this heart, all evil shed away,
A pulse in the eternal mind, no less
Gives somewhere back the thoughts by England given;
Her sights and sounds; dreams happy as her day;
And laughter, learnt of friends; and gentleness,
In hearts at peace, under an English heaven.

I've been planning some faerie paintings and sketches to sell. Trying to decide whether to just sell originals or do prints as well? Of course once they're finished I'll be sure to put them up for you to see!
