Folksy Friday - Devonshire Delights

Right, now I'm getting back into the swing of blogging... back to doing my Folksy Fridays again!

For those not in the know a 'Folksy Friday' is a weekly selection of items found on the UK handmade sellers website Folksy which usually pops up in sellers blogs, Facebook pages etc to showcase some favourite items from other sellers in line with a theme, colour scheme, occasion and so on.  If you sell on Folksy there is a little feature on the basics of how to make your own on the Folksy blog and the all important (and highly acclaimed!) Haptree Mini Treasury Template which helps us bloggers make sense of the html stuff needed to make one!

Anyhooooo.... I thought I'd get some inspiration from a little closer to home this week and find some picks local to me in sunny ol' Devon. Enjoy!

  12. Hi! I would like to open beauty salon. Does anybody have an experience in this business? There are too many options in different salon equipment. Could anybody give me an advise? What store is more reliable to buy Cosmetic trolley and Nail trolley. I'm choosing between Advance-Esthetic and Spa&Equipment websites.
