Kind of the same thing with me... Traffic is actually up and I've seen numerous comments from people saying they plan to buy our stuff. Still, sales are lower than they should be. I think the fear factor is still out there for mainly employed people, who are paranoid that they may be UNemployed because of all that sort of talk. I figure it's only a matter of time before they get over it, and all that looking will start being buying again. I've done the same thing myself... I've looked at stuff, then didn't pull the trigger, thinking I should be more responsible and wait for better times. But if I was broke and had no money at all... I wouldn't even bother looking. Why torture yourself. I use this slower time to work out new tooling and manufacturing ideas to make things go faster... Develop new products... I figure, the more you have, the more you have to sell, the better your chances at sales get.
