Climates and holidays
Spare a thought for the seasonal seller. They have to make hay while the sun shines or shift winter gear when it’s snowing. Then there’s holiday seasonality, as sellers prepare for the painfully short events like Valentines, Easter, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, back to school, Hallowe’en and Christmas, to name but a few. Get it wrong and you could be sitting on paid-for stock quite a while.
