We had our best week in six months that was helped by a huge sale. A set designer purchased $1300 worth of vintage markers (the kind used in elementary schools). We mentioned that we purchased three shopping carts of these four years ago and they keep selling. Definitely long tail.
Otherwise, I wonder if eBay sales will keep picking up for the holidays since we keep hearing news of shipping delays of stuff from China. Will buyers look to US sellers on eBay for their xmas presents?
