I finally hit and then passed my monthly sales goal for the booth. In fact, even if I don't sell anything else this month, I'll now have set a sales record for this store. If I keep selling at the rate I have been (and who can predict such things), I'll have my second or third best month overall anywhere.
Suddenly, a wave of entrepreneurial energy has flooded over me!
Look out wanna-be presidential candidates!
The Donald is over!
It is now the era of The Edward!
Fun fact: The Edward has better (and more natural hair) than the Donald, even if he does still need a damn haircut.
Don't worry. I am not going to start referring to myself in the third person all of the time now. Just some of the time. When I'm feeling
Strong sales this time of year are not unusual. Fall is a good time for the vendor malls around here. What's weird is that this sales-run is entirely smalls driven. I've sold two pieces of furniture this month. Two. I've only sold a couple of larger-priced items besides that. Everything else has been small stuff that's ten bucks or less, with much of that being in the one-three buck range.
My biggest sellers have been Halloween and comic books. I'm going to have to reshuffle the Halloween again to try and fill in some major holes. I think I'm going to sneak the fall stuff in amongst the Halloween to see if some of it might sell by mistake.
I'm down to my last batch of already priced comics. I priced up everything I got last weekend, but I'm going to have to do some bagging and pricing this week. I'll also need to haul in a box of books.
Once I get the restocking done, I need to spend some time working on the Endcap Booth. It's become a little more disorganized than I like, so I'm going to try creating some sections and "zones." I'm also going to move pull all the furniture out and put it in new spots to try and jump start those sales.
In other good news, my scan was good. Really good, in fact. The docs are happy. I'm happy. Things are definitely moving in the right direction. The treatment will be continuing for some time now, but it's doing what it's supposed to be doing.
The whole visit went really smoothly last week, except that the lab got backed up, which delayed my treatment for a little while. I was out about 30 minutes later than normal, so it wasn't too bad. The Bingo volunteers were there this time. I didn't play, because I was really engrossed in my puzzle book, but there was a woman in my section who was intense about it. Made me realize that Bingo Halls are not places I want to be hanging out. People get cut-throat over their Bingo. Even though I didn't play, they let me pick a prize out of the prize basket at the end.
Still waiting for the arts and crafts lady with the macaroni art.

This weekend is the big Highway 60 sale, and I am psyched to go! We'll only go about an hour or two down the road, then turn around and come back. That's usually enough for a full van load. I'd love to make a killer vintage Christmas score. My Christmas stash feels so light this year that it worries me.
It's just going to be a short trip, but it's going to be fun and different and I think I would like that right about now.
