Lightbulb Post Xmas Ebay Selling

I think it's universally accepted here that the best approach is to set up auctions that will end after Christmas and take advantage of some collectors having money burning a hole in their pocket.

But my question is, when should I set up listings to end? Is Thursday too soon? I thought about setting up listings to start on Sunday evening and run for 5 days so people might see the listing prior to Xmas and have it in mind when they get done getting holiday cash.

I'm curious when everyone else is planning to end theirs.

This is my plan. But I'm not sure when to end things. With xmas being on a Tuesday, most will have to return to work on Wed, or Thursday, even if for a short work week I will most likley spread my auctions out through the week (which I personally hate to do). Personally weekend auctions for me haven't been doing real well, so I've started endthing them during the week. With the bowl games starting, this could hinder that idea too.

If I can get them all done, I'll get them up tonight and let them run a full 7 days but I've got a bunch so it might be tough. Thank goodness for Turbo Lister!!

Man it has been a very good 6 weeks. In my other thread I posted I have over $7K in sales and expect 8-9K by end of month. I personally am low in stock, and next few months I will have to re-fill. So this week I am not posting too much stuff.
