What has happened to Crazy Wednesday craft auctions???

Recommended Posts

meeks

As the heading says, what on earth is going on with the crazy Wednesday craft auctions? Most items are still at R1, where once, a couple hours after the start of the auctions, bids were rolling in on items listed there

 

I was going to list some kits today, but thought to "wait and see" - Sad really, many regular buyers have disappeared,and when one looks to see whether they have been active on BOB, the majority of them have not been active for many months.

 

Is it this quiet in all categories? (Auctions)

Bussines is bad all over Meeks. It could be due to the holidays, or buyers without money.

I agree with Miems - and items which have bids are virtually being given away at those prices!

April wasn't a bad month for me at all. But May - dare I try and be optimistic at the rate things are going on Crazy Wednesday today?

I had 3 paintings on auction and I deleted one last night because there were no bids on it, which has never happened before. The bids on the other 2 were not good and I have only received one further bid today.

Perhaps people have spent all their money on their holidays but whatever it is , it's not worth my while to list lots of work when things are this slow.

April was an ok month for me but May has not started well .:wondering:

Yeah it only makes sense that most people have spent over the April holidays, and even if they still have extra money it would make psychological sense that they would feel compelled to spend less right after a high spenditure period.

I think I'll be staying away from the Wednesday auctions.. I usually only do "buy-it-nows", but decided to give it a try this week.. Very disappointing to say the least! :sad:

It's not always disappointing, kebs! But this week's Crazy Wednesday has earned the name of "totally mal" and not just Crazy! I'm now feeling guilty for paying so little for items I've won then, on the other hand, being very disappointed with prices I got for my items!

Hi!

 

We do a weekly search on your name... But you've scaled down drastically over the last few months. We miss your goodies.

Hi Edmund,

 

Yes I have scaled down a lot, partly because of the bad support in the craft auctions (Crazy Wednesday) but also because, my daughter was diagnosed with a very painful back problem (some huge medical term) and it has been specialist after specialist, a stint in hospital theatre, and I was needed to be there for her (still do when she has her "bad" days, and she has to be taken to hospital for morphine injection., which quickly relieves the excruciating pain that accompanies this condition.Then my brother was diagnosed with skin cancer,and still is undergoing treatment for it, and there again, I have to be his pillar to lean on. So when exhaustion sets in, the last thing on my mind is trying to find time to list my items, although I have tried, and still do. Yes I have had a "break" from BOB for almost 2 months straight recently, due to above reasons,

but slowly am trying to schedule time for my listings, yet the craft support is still very low.
