Bit of a quieter month as we lost several trading days with the extra number of public holidays during the month. Bit of a dip as well with our two consistent top sellers moving for sunnier climates with John and Jan and their wooden boards, and Michelle with her earrings and necklaces both moving away.

April Sales: $8,285.05 (10% decrease over March)
Items Sold: 891
Average Price: $9.30 per product

Time since opened: 10 months, 26 days (or 330 days total)
Sales since opened: $118,058.85
Items sold since opened: 10,625

Goal for the first 12 months was to break $100,000 in sales. Looks like we will crack $120,000 sometime this month which is amazing. Thats a LOT of $5 / $10 locally made items sold.

As always – thank you very much makers and customers alike for all your support.

Much appreciated,

Angus
