Wild Flower Stamps - Nearly ready for sale.

I'm just not sure where?  I think I'd like to sell them in a The Old Barn in Wadenhoe.  They sell tea and coffee amongst other delicious things.  It is a little garden centre too with a gift shop inside.  Or do I sell them in Etsy and finally set up shop with them.  I wish I could do both?  Maybe I could if I were quick off the mark with purchases, taking the bought item out of where I'm selling it?  Can it be done?  What do you do?

Here is what I have to sell to start with, some wild flowers.  I will be boxing them but need to buy some thin hay to line the boxes with.  I think I will stamp the picture of the flower on the outside of the box.  I will show you the finished article once I've decided.  I've been trying to work out the best presentation for my stamps as there's no where really to put a label.  This way I could glue a little pretty information leaflet on the back or something?

Here are the stamps for now that I have carved, ready for boxing.


  1. I sell via both Etsy & Folksy, listing the same stock. You can easily remove/hide listings, so if it should sell on one it isn't too hard to remove on the other.

    Both of my accounts are linked to the same email, which I check religiously - so I hope, I'm always on the ball. Of course there are times I actually leave the house, but as of yet, I haven't sold the same thing at the same time on both sites.

    In regards to selling through a B&M shop, I would use different stock. The shops I sell through don't always update you with any sales straight away. I also wouldn't like to sell an item online if I hadn't actually got my paws on it at home.

    Good luck with it all though. Selling through a number of platforms is always a great idea in regards to promotion.

  2. You can easily remove sold items from an online store if you have the same item in various online outlets
    With regards to retail sales, different stock is the way to go as its unfair also to the shop if they are having commission on sales for the item to be removed after they've been showcasing it for you
    hope that helps x


I design my own stamps to sell and craft with, however if you have your own design that you would like turned into a stamp I can do that for you. I have many stamps done to order and there are portfolio's for you to view.
