Thinking Ahead

Those of us who work in retail follow a different calendar than the rest of the world. In the fall when homeowners are beginning to decorate for Halloween, we are getting advertisements for Valentine's Day. Next week, we will attend NY NOW, a wholesale gift show, where we should be planning out Christmas. We, most likely, will be oohing and aahing over Easter.

As a maker selling our own items online, we need to have our Easter items up in the next week or so. Since we sell some items wholesale, we need to have them ready for other retailers to place last minute orders. It gets very confusing at times and it's a wonder we know what month it is, let alone what day.
