Every year I do a year end sale and mark down everything in the store.
Usually the day after Christmas until the 1st.

Should I do it early this year?

I would say stick to what you have done in the past. Just looking at bst, stuff is slow right now buying stuff for the non knuts. (at least in my mind) good luck.

Yup. I was told my Christmas bonus would come Jan 7, 2013... Hopefully the Myans were wrong! :(

Look at the bright side. If the Mayans were right, there won't be a "fiscal cliff" and that will save us a lot of paperwork.:biggrin: As for the sale, whenever works fine for me.

Yeah, well, if there were a piece of wood I really wanted, I wouldn't wait.
Nevertheless, I would go with surprise sales of particular woods, thereby providing an incentive to check the site more often. And, not incidentally, rewarding those who compulsively look through your stock, whether or not they actually need more wood.
Oh, and don't forget that all sales should start at 00:01 PST, that way all those Europeans will be asleep at the wheel.

If the goal is to attract new customers, I would wait until the Chinese new year. China's market is expanding quickly-you don't want to miss that boat!

No money now, but of course I cant guarantee there will be money later either.

Then there's that "free shipping worldwide." Radical egalitarianism if I've ever seen it. "If it fits, it ships", give me a break. Socialist Postal Service nonsense.
The cost of shipping is largely a function of distance. Obviously, it one lives just down the coast from the source of the wood, it should arrive at less cost than the same piece delivered on the East Coast or in Europe.

For me, the cost of shipping is a minor expense using USPS flat rate shipping.
Typical international customers buy several pieces at a time so cost per item for shipping is pretty low.

Now if I was shipping larger heavier pieces it would get pretty spendy.

Looking at the time stamp on my post, I was not serious when I wrote that . . .
