    I am a Plus Account holder too. I chose this from the get go because I believed it would allow me the freedom to list as many items as I want - relisting was something I only thought to do near expiries...until now! Whilst I accept that volume varies from seller to seller, I agree that a balance must be put in for all the reasons above. Also, to see masses of items from a particular seller on the front page almost every day, does not give the right impression of what Folksy is all about. I manage to design and make around 6 items a week and it's been a hard slog getting views and sales. Once it was pointed out to me that the above was happening, I checked and found that my 1/2 dozen listings each week were probably only fleetingly seen on the front page. In fact even on a more definitive search in under an hour, I couldn't find them or they were so far down, I doubt buyers would ever see them.

    It is hard enough to promote but missing out on promotion from the source of one's own shop is a bitter pill to take when you've gone along playing fair and using the re-listing for what was probably its original intention. Like many, I am trying to build a business and make money from my craft and this is making it that much harder. Whilst I understand that Folksy accepts mass relistings, the relist all, I agree, is probably part of the problem.
