in the store

Sold1I am not sure what it is about this month, but sales in the store have skyrocketed recently. Last year at this time, Potomac Trading Post had been open for less than four months. January sales were probably the lowest that they had been all year. I thought that perhaps it was something that I was doing wrong, but it turns out that the first month of the year is usually the slowest for retail stores (given that customers are still recovering from Christmas). This year, January has proven to be a profitable month so far. So thank you, everyone! I could not have done it and would not be here without all of you.

HSSOLDPictured above are just a few items that have sold since Friday.

  1. Congrats! My EBay January sales are usually good as well, but I just haven’t made the time to shop (I shop thrift stores and flea markets for vintage items). I have to get back to it!

    • Good for you as well!! What is your eBay store name? I’d like to look it up. :-)))

      I think that we have one advantage over brick and mortar retail stores, and that’s the online advantage. It’s much easier to stay home and spend money as opposed to going out in the cold and spending it. Plus our hours are 24/7.


  2. Glad sales are good for you!!!

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
