Maybe we *should* be thinking about why sales are ok. At least, I think if we did I would learn something from exploring the question.

My wholesale sales are very good this month, and look like they might be "normal" for next month. One of my craft pals is doing poorly with expensive one of a kind work that is very "edgy" but the rest, who rely on a larger audience, seem to be busy.

I think I'm doing OK, because I have a large pool of accounts, and when some fell aside I worked with others. I also learned to build an account data base that helped me figure out who I wanted to approach.

Even though I knew all this stuff in my head about who sold how much for how long..it took shape on paper in a way that I hadn't understood before, indicating that I had a bigger market for wholesale than I understood.
