when we get something really good...like the piano it sells....also some rare toys sold fast....
generally price has been a big factor this year....lots of furniture under 100...not so much over...
i think prim has sold pretty well....

homestead...in gifts i was glad for our garden wire and metal flowers...
lots of junk and windows...but that takes up so much room and doesnt bring in much money.....
i joined giftbeat to try and figure out what to buy....we have tons of new young customers!!!im trying to figure them out..... still selling lots of words...
