Mall Selling during the Holidays So I have come to the conclusion that there are advantages and disadvantages of selling craft items at the Mall, during the holidays. I feel that you make more money online than selling at shops, galleries, malls and other outlets. But I have to say during holiday times selling at the mall has some advantages.
You basically can be a shop owner without the tremendous financial risk and responsibilities of store ownership.
You are selling in a atmosphere without the problems of consignment selling or stress of wholesale.
Consumers are shopping and are ready to buy during the holidays.
One huge disadvantage is products in malls during the holidays tend to be handled a lot, so you should expect to lose some merchandise not only by handling, but to the unfortunate thing called shoplifting.
How do you sell your craft items, is it in a mall, or online during the holidays?
