I was caught completely off guard yesterday evening when a gallery-owner-friend asked me, "What are you making right now for Christmas sales?" Well, after I picked my jaw up off the floor I explained that I don't have a definitive plan for what will be new this year...but that I should know soon. That was the best tap-dancing-answer I could spit out for a question I wasn't expecting. The question did get me thinking. Last year, I asked a question about cut-off dates for custom holiday orders and now have October 15th chiseled into my calendar. But now, we are (only) 165 days until Christmas Day and it is time for me to at least start thinking about those Christmas sales. Considering that the first pop-up show I have committed to starts November 1st, there are a lot fewer than 165 day to get ready. So...On your mark, get set, here are the questions: What is your plan for Christmas? When do you start production on items that you know will be reserved for Christmas sales? And what (if any) are you doing/making that you expect to be your top seller for the holidays this year? No pressure, but I have Santa holding on the phone for an answer -Paul
