This seems to be passing me by I guess. My Ebay sales are nowhere near what they have been the last few years. I sell Vintage Beistle repros. Hopefully things will pick up soon.
This and the Haunted House Attraction industry that is a $300 million a year industry in its self I bet they dont count them eitherThis year??? I hope they're selling a lot of candy. But then, I'm not the general market.
I wonder what that total would be like if it included all of our "not-specifically-Halloween stuff" like hardware purchases, the small online vendors, the things I've bought on Amazon to use as costume or props, the stuff people buy from thrift stores, garage sales... but we'll never know, which is just an added layer of mystery I guess.
