Good week for us. Our business keeps cranking along. Even though we have little control over what and when people buy from us, it’s always amazing how we make about the same each month when our weekly totals are averaged. All we can do is keep listing.
We did some calculations this evening and counted about 36 boxes of unlisted items (plus a storage locker full of art). How do we have such a backlog even after listing hundreds of items a month? Usually we box up the items from auctions that aren’t so interesting. It’ll all sell and make money, but we like to start with the items that are cool or will sell for big money. So this unlisted stuff will be our winter work because there are no flea markets to go to. We’ll see how much we can get done. Some of this stuff is from last winter!
Other sellers have different strategies for their online businesses. We keep filling up the pipeline with whatever is fun for us.
