Random Thought?

Allie sells children's clothes, some used, some new, on eBay for fun and profit. We have found that our auctions seem to do better when they close on Friday or Saturday night instead of other nights.

Then, I get this sudden, spontaneous thought. Almost all of our buyers are moms. It is probable that a good many of them are stay-at-home moms. These moms might be proned to shopping primarily in the daytime instead of in the evenings, when everyone is home, and during the week rather than on the weekends when the family is doing everything together. Hmmmmm. Experimentation with auction ending times has begun.
