It's only 6 days in.  Not enough time to talk about roofs being blown off or sales being non-existent.

I've sold about 170 items sold so far since Jan. 1, in four different categories. I'm not complaining. I have my fingers crossed it will continue and that sales will improve for everyone on SC.

Looks like Buyers came out of blankets last night and gave me a big boost. I'm on track to meet my NOV/DEV sales number or even beat it. 

 

let's see if the buyers can keep up HAHA  (Ebay better put my ads on top again if they want to get $1500 fees like nov/dec)

 

I noticed that things have been slow on Amazon too (I received few orders from Amazon last night too)...

7 so far but trying to be optimistic.  I improve wach month but it looks like things are really slowing down.  I think my items are priced right compared to other items similiar to mine but things are just slow.  I have been selling 4 months and so far I haven't given up yet.

The longer I'm on eBay, the more convinced I am that idiocy in the world is growing at an alarming rate. No where is it more visible than the view from eBay itself.

My sales in January are finally back up to where they used to be, before the end of October last year. I have sold more the first 9 days than the entire months of December. Not sure if this is the result of Pinterest posts, or ebay finally switched on the light again in my store. We shall see! I wish everyone the same. PW

I have nothing to hide either.

 

I have something to protect, my feedback and DSRs from potentially petty, jealous and vendictive members.

 

Unfortunately, some members get their ego bruised in these forums, and lack the emotional maturity to set aside their differences, and chose to retaliate with malicious buying.

 

I'm merely being proactive against such members.

 

You certainly aren't naive enough to suggest that there has never been a case of malicious buying, or some other nefarious action stemming from a disagreement on the forums are you?

Items are selling even high dollar.

We just don’t have what anyone wants.

That’s life.

Fewer people with ‘money’ >> first they need ‘cash’ >>then they need want.

Many lookers  but we lookers have no CASH.
