What does success look like for YOU?
We're proud to be home to sellers all across the UK who earn a living from their craft. But, for others, their shop is a much-needed and appreciated chance to supplement their income, and others do it purely for the joy of creating and sharing. ⁠ We believe each reason is just as valid as the next, so we'd love to know: what's the driving force behind your creative pursuit? What does success look like for you?⁠ ⁠ Is it 20 sales a week, someone favouriting something, or something else entirely?⁠
