Only 149 shopping days left until Christmas!

No primary category set
Squared Circles

It’s the 2nd of August, so that must mean… Christmas? Christmas shopping at Selfridges starts today, the earliest the store has ever opened its seasonal department (last year was 8th August, so it’s not so unusually early for them).

What about online merchants? I checked eBay and there are listed on the site. I know from selling in Crafts that August and September are peak season for selling to people making their own cards, gifts and decorations: how about other categories? Have you got your Christmas stock listed? or even ordered? Leave us a comment.

  1. Having been caught out previously I have stock and packaging materials packed, racked and stacked. I have already listed some Christmas lines, because I actually sold some items as early as August last year.

    So I’m thinking to myself – Ready to Rock and Roll

    However whilst listing some of this years Christmas lines I realised that I still had some items listed from last year.

    O well, the best laid plans of mice and men.
