Usually at this time of year, I am frantically alternating between listing on ebay, and boxing up "sold" ebay items, and, more often than not, taking a daily load of 15-20 boxes down to be shipped.
Not this year.
This year is my first relaxing Christmas season in 10 years. The bad part of this terrible economy is that it's affecting the average ebay seller as much as it's affecting the big stores, and it's much harder for us to absorb the drop in income. The silver lining is that I'm not stressed over getting things shipped on time, and have time to sit back and actually enjoy *my* holidays.
This is my shipping table - totally neat and organized, a place for everything, and everything in its place. Anytime it looks like this, you know sales are terrible, and I've had time to clean -something that I will never willingly do.
Here's hoping for a quick holiday season, and a messy shipping table in 2009.
