As we get closer to Christmas, I'm selling more of the Christmas stock and I've started to see some patterns on what is popular and what is less so. When I reviewed the Christmas products I was very taken with the mildly intoxicated koalas snoozing on deckchairs (after what as obviously a very indulgent lunch!), but it hasn't turned out to be the best seller I expected. Another card, which wasn't nearly so impressive to my mind has grown on me as the customers have flocked to it. It has a pale green background and shows pairs of Christmas themed thongs (that's flip flops to the rest of you) (and jandles for my friends in New Zealand).
I guess I'm a sheep after all, being influenced by the majority.
But let's see where I stand on December 1, when I have to make my final decision about which card I will send. Who knows, I may have changed my mind completely by then!
