If you are anything like me, time flies! I swear that each time I look at a calendar, I find myself saying, “I can’t believe (insert a month) is already here!” This led me to create a chart detailing when you should list what items. The chart breaks down major holidays, seasons, and events throughout the year and makes suggestions for when you should start listing items, and which items you should either pack up for next year or place on sale or clearance – depending on your preferences.
The chart is ready for you to download, print, and hang in your workspace or studio in PDF format: Guide to Selling Holiday or Seasonal Handmade Items.
A few final notes: Don’t forget to be observant when you are out shopping; watching when chain stores stock certain items will help you determine when you should list your holiday or seasonal items. This chart is just a guideline: Some sellers (particularly those on Etsy or those with their own websites) will move all of their out of season products to a category called “Holiday” and leave them up year round. And, be sure to plan to leave yourself enough time to create the items before you begin listing them.
