Oh to have these sold!

I think that if it were not for this stinking economy, I would be kicking it up in sales in my Artfire shop! They have this great little addition called a Sticky Cart....

It's great for buyers because they can put something in their cart and it pulls it out of the inventory so that it can't be sold from underneath them.

I equate it to being in a brick and mortar store.

You pick up a bunch of different things but when it comes to check out time, you have to decide what you need verses what you want and what you can afford. I know that we have all been there.

Well, in the past week or so, I have been noticing that when I log on to my Artfire shop, that my for sale numbers will be lower than what they should be. So I go looking through my shop and see what has been stickied!

NOT a SINGLE sticky item has sold yet. And this might not even be all that has been taken out and put into a cart, just what I have seen with my own eyes! Oh to have had the sales, I tell ya, I would have this roof replaced in no time!

I know that this is a heavily photoed post, but all of these items are SO cute and someone wanted to buy them! I mean, we are talking twelve items here.

So I sat here and tried to figure out just how much money I could have made if these items had sold.

Here is what I came up with:
Eeyore Dress - $12
Kimono Booties - $12
Playtime Tepee - $38
Polka Dot Nap Mat - $30

Camo Nap Mat - $30
Pink Skull Key Fob - $4.99
Support the Troops Outfit - $50
Custom Twirl Outfit - $80

Religious Headband - $7.50
Ice Pop Finger Savers - $2.99
Girly Skulls Outfit - $59.95
Chef Hat - $11.97

Total sales not gotten : $339.40
Now that would be kicking some booty if I can make the sales.... Think it will happen?
*** Added ~ I am trying to be positive and think that these sales WILL come once the economy gets better. Life will be get better here shortly! I am just stoked, really that so many of my things have been stickied! With sales next to nothing, I had been afraid that I wasn't in the right business. Now I know that I am.

Hang in there:) I believe sales are about to start getting better! Mine have been picking up in the last, I'm hopeful!

I love the playtime teepee and the chef hats that you make:)

ORRRRR You could look at it this like:
THey stickied your stuff, liked it enough to sticky it (some ppl use sticky cart as a sort of hot list, just in case) and perhaps when they get some funds they'll be back!! :) Try to look at it that way!

Actually, that is how I am trying to look at it. Hopefully they will be back!

I think people will start buying again soon- I hope! How great they loved your stuff enough to stick it in the cart to begin with!
