Frequently Asked Questions
Your products will be sold via the main gift shop and on corresponding pages throughout the web site. We will assume that you have more than one of each item (unless told otherwise) and keep listing until you wish the item to be removed or changed.
Don't worry if your items are unique - You can change / remove items whenever you wish. There are lots of members who only make one of each item - just send us through a new item and we replace the sold one for you.
If you are selling items that come in different colours / sizes then these are counted as one item i.e. a Teddy Bear available in small, medium or large, in colours red, blue or green etc. will be counted as one item.
If you make more than one type of craft i.e. pottery and knitwear; we advise you to open a dual shop (Pearl / Diamond) to increase your search results.
Don't worry if your type of craft does not fit under any of the headings on our Gift Shop page as we will add a new heading for you.

Little Darling Baby Quilts
Hi Emma I have just looked at the page you have done for me, it is lovely, just as I imagined it would be. I love your website & I think it is great how you allow people to sell their own crafts on it. I have already told all my friends & relations about it, not just for me but for the variety of crafts etc you have on the site. I cant wait to be live now & be part of your website as a craft maker. Thankyou once again Emma
Jean Roberston from IJ Crafts

From Katy x
Hi Emma, That’s great I’m looking forward to seeing the page live. I wish you would accept a gift even if it’s just a little one like a piece of jewellery, a purse or a brooch from the LADJA site but if not at least you will know the work you do on behalf of your crafters are highly valued.
Heather from Fairy Divas
Hi Emma just a note to say shop looks great and there is a lot of interesting information you have on walkabout crafts.
Every thing looks great and thankyou for your hard work in helping me promote my items
Virginia from Ginny's Crafts
A fantastic job I am very pleased with what you have done for me.
Mandy and Pauline
Just wanted to say a big thankyou for all the work you've done on our web page, you've done a great job and we're both really pleased with it. Can't recommend you highly enough, you're fab.
Mandy and Pauline (Bluebell Crafts)
I just wanted to give Emma a big THANK YOU for all her hard work last year and the help with promoting our online businesses even in the middle of the credit crunch. I am so pleased with my shop and how quick you list my new items for sale. Here is to a good New Year for us all.
How clever and talented are you, good grief that was quick, I expected to wait weeks for the first draft but here it is , I am flabbergasted it's so very good and you have made my work look professional
Hi there, Sharon from Knitknacks here. I think I'm one of the newest crafters on the site, so thought I should say Hello. I'm delighted with all that Emma has done for me and for the site - how does she do it?!
Diana from Diza Tiaras
I am a relatively new member of the craft world. I started up in business making tiaras and jewellery for my niece who was getting married waaaay back in 2005. But the craft that lead me to your website was my wire wrapped jewellery which I was taught by a lady in England. Although I have sold a few pieces to people via wedding fayres I felt I needed to introduce it to the craft world where I know people are always looking for something unusual. Emma WOW you are providing a huge amount of work for us all and I for one really appreciate it. I run my own website where I will be adding your banner to it in the next few days and a church website.
Nice to meet you
