    As you probably know, my hubby and I run our own jewellery business and coming up to Christmas we always get very busy, and have been asked if we are going to have a sale on this year, which we will, but we are trying to find out when most people do their Christmas shopping, so we can set up a ebay sale at the right sort of time!

    So the options we have-
    Last week in November
    First week in December
    Second week in December

    Also if you could 'like' our FB page we would really appreciate it :D

    Ive already started and usually do at the start of November (to try and spread it over 2 pay packets!).
    Although if Im buying something from a small on line company I would want to have ordered at least 3 months in advance. Ive been caught out before by ordering things that havent arrived for several months!!:rolleyes:

    I do not shop before December unless I see something exceptional.

    Usually I am last minute stress !! But this year I am just getting things as and when I think of it and see something suitable when out so I got a few little things in last month to store away and a few this month that are now wrapped up as well. Still not done but don't feel as stressed about what I am going to get the people I need to buy for!!
