I’ve had a couple of really appalling weeks on Ebay – lots of items with no interest at all, and things that are selling, are going for really low prices.
Could it be that the recession is biting as far as second hand goods on Ebay now? Or maybe it’s just coincidence. My gut feeling tells me it’s not the recession, as I sell almost exclusively second-hand goods, and surely the market for good quality second-hand should remain steady or even rise during a recession? I don’t know, I’m no economist ….
But I feel very unsettled about it.
I have noticed a pattern since the beginning of the year that sales are far better in the first half of the month than the second half (too much month at the end of the money syndrome, I assumed), but this month has been bad all the way through. Change of season, perhaps?
I don’t know, but I’ll just keep plugging away …
