Last year was a real bummer for me. It was the first year that I made less money than the previous, since starting. It seemed like nothing was selling well at all. Then, almost as soon as the new year started, it was like night and day. Items I only sold a handful of last year, I've already sold more than an equal amount, in just the first 1 1/2 months. Hopefully it will continue... I probably jinxed it now. But I don't think I will ever understand sales trends.
