These two Taylor & Ng Thanksgiving mugs were among the mugs that sold last month - just 4 months later than expected, but hey, who's counting. The point is - they sold.
I have talked about mugs being good sellers for me before, and even though I hardly visited the booth at all this last month due to a ski vacation that led to crutches and then the cat nearly dying twice, I returned to my booth knowing that at least some of my mugs would have sold. And they had. Along with a lot of other bigger stuff (which was more unexpected, and which I will talk about soon).
But, again, the point is that I knew that at least some of the mugs would be gone. I never spend more than $0.99 on mugs, and I always price them at $5 in my booth. Not the biggest profit, but a decent ROI (and my antique market does not charge commission). And since they are in seemingly endless supply at the thrifts, I'll take it.
Maybe I should open up a sister booth and call it Mad Mug? Something to ponder. Cheers!
