Well done. You must be very proud. It is also good to see that your store is still open. Job well done.

Tarrakk Blackhand:

Well, that’s because I took a job painting houses. The recession has been a pain though.

Actually, the clothing store beside me went out of business, so I’m proud to have survived.

I might also add in some RC cars in the near future too, and hopefully it will increase sales!


Congratulations! Glad you’re still in business and still following your dream! Rc cars could be a very good idea. There’s 3 or 4 shops in my home town that specialise in rc kits and they all seem very popular.


Congrats dude and I wish you the best for the future! :hat off

Have you noticed any change in the types of products getting bought from you, e.g. less GW, etc?

Actually, I just finished printing my ZZ Report yesterday which covered DEC 31 2010 - November 17 2011 and I found out something interesting.

When I printed the previous year, my model train department made up for 31% of all store sales, Games made 15%, model cars made 12% and Supplies such as paint and glue, made up 10%. All other items were 4% and below.

This time, Games made up 31%, Trains were 13%, Supplies were 9% and everything else was 7% and below.

It's interesting that the trains fell so drastically and games took over.

Tarrakk Blackhand:

Now I bounced up to 12, 000+!

Tarrakk Blackhand:

Thanx Bassman.  It seems to me that as soon as I get my web site to where I think it’s perfect, I then have to rebuild it to look better. :smiley:


Best wishes for the future
