Setting Up Shop!


YES! YES! YES!
Thank you for all your pushes, nudges and shoves! Yes I am going to open a folksy shop, in fact I registered a moment ago.

Thank you for all your words of support and for gently (and some not so gently -Lesley and Alchamillamolly) pushing me in the right direction. ( Yes I can be hard work at times)
So before I go all official on Folksy, and restock the Fatsheep, if any of you lovely, lovely ladies would really like one of my embroidered bunnies then please email me.

I have 6 bunnies. There are 4 in the yellowy-orange colours and 2 in pinky-blue colours.

They are all about 10 inches or 26cm tall, as well as being made from vintage embroidered linens, they also have matching hand embroidery by yours truly.

They have button jointed arms and tiny matching buttons attaching the ears.

Each one has a 'MarmaladeRose' label hand stitched on the back and a little love heart embroidered on his tail.

Though they have safety eyes, these bunnies are only meant for decorative purposes and not as toys.


They cost £22 each and this includes p&p in the UK.



Phew! I think that's everything. I found that really hard, I'm not a natural sales woman. (Even hundreds of years working for M&S hasn't helped.)


Thank you for the supportive comments you leave me, they really mean a lot.
love Fi x

Great idea to open a Folksy shop. I will look out for you over there. Funnily enough, when I visited your blog yesterday and saw the bunnies I went to look in the sidebar for the link to your shop then realised you didn't have one! You definitely should as the bunnies are gorgeous so I'm glad to hear you've just registered. Good luck.

Hi Fi, well done and I know it will be the beggining af something wonderful...
I really shouldn't but if I type really quietly the management might not notice but I would love a bunny!

Can you choose your favourite and pop my name on it!

I will pop a cheque in the post to you!

Well done Fi! Great news on opening a shop, I'm sure it will be a great success as your creations are all just so beautiful! You are one super talented lady! The bunnies are so sweet too. Good luck with your new venture.

P.S. I haven't forgotten about last month's friends challenge - I've started something but just not got round to finishing it! Tut tut I know! I'll see what I can do!

Hi Fi

Yes please, any one will be fine if there is still one available. They all look fabulous, so I'm sure I'd be delighted with whichever one would like to come and live here! My email is sm.meager@tiscali.co.uk. Thanks.
