Well I almost hate to say it since everyone seems to be having a slow May (though maybe "slow" is subjective), but this has been my best month yet. Maybe it helps (sales, not my wallet) that I have only changed about half of my shipping prices.
What has helped me? I would say that participating in the buy and replace lists has helped, but only two of my seven sales have come from that.
I was also either listing or renewing almost daily until about a week ago. But unfortunately life has caused my sewing to come to a screeching halt. Actually, sewing has caused sewing to come to a screeching halt. I've been making insane pirate costumes for the PotC:AWE opening next Thursday. As of Tuesday I should be 100% complete, and I can start making headbands again. And cuffs! Oh do I want to make some cuffs!
Since my sales have been growing exponentially, I imagine that next month will be even better! Maybe by Christmas people will rely on me for presents
It might be wishful thinking, but at this moment, I'm pretty darn proud of myself!
