Hey ya'll! What do you think the best stategy is for timing the end of auctions during Thanksgiving. I'm thinking that this is a prime shopping date and that a lot of people are off work where then normally are not. Perhaps more work put out then regular and varying the end dates from thrusday to monday? Perhaps even relisting, if the thrusday one doesn't sell for a short auction? What do ya'll think?

Here's what I've noticed about AND holiday weekends since April when I started listing on ebay.

There is little bidding activity going on, things screech to a halt. I've learned to wait till AFTER a holiday to list, and never do a new listing right before a holiday week end. You would think people are out of work, but apparently they are not sitting in front of their computer!

Maybe someone else has gone thru the Thanksgiving holiday on ebay that can advise whether people actually shop for Christmas on those days on ebay.
