What’s Selling in Vintage & Antiques [October 2018]

Hi there! How was your Thanksgiving? We had a relatively small but festive gathering; everyone brought dishes to share, and we played games together into the evening. But the next day, I was right back at “work,” restocking both my craft and antique booths. This girl knows how to hustle! Today’s post: What’s Selling in Vintage & Antiques for the month of October, provides some evidence of that.

On the other hand, you’ll also see that when I have too many plates spinning, I sometimes drop one or two along the way, LOL. October’s eBay and Facebook Marketplace sales are almost non-existent, due to the extra time and energy I put into my ebook launch and pre-sales.

If you’d like to take a look at previous “What’s Selling” posts, you’ll find them all here.
