Well, I fell short of my listing goal in September. So what does that mean for October? Set an even bigger goal, of course! I am not where I’d like to be sales-wise, but I have high hopes for the fourth quarter. Of course, to sell things they need to be listed, and I have a lot of unlisted inventory languishing in my storage room. So, I am setting a goal of 200 new listings for October. I’ve never accomplished that many in one month before. Maybe this time?
Halloween items are flying out the door, which I love. It’s taken over the second spot in my store’s top performing categories (behind plush). I had over 100 sales in September, and right around 20% were Halloween related, be it costumes, clothing, decor, etc. Fun, fun, fun. But, I am saving those for a different post. Below you will find a handful of my other September sales, along with the varied times it took for each item to sell.
