This terrific paper aeroplane kit sold out in a week. We bought it on a nostalgia whim and a week later it’s all gone. You know from the nature of the product that all stock has been purchased on impulse, making the it an even more valuable product. A good impulse item can be empowering for your buying just as a failure of a product can result in you second-guessing purchases.
We report on seasonal items separately from gifts. This item, since it is not Christmas-themed, sits in our gift department. There we have it in a relevant category. This is important since buying is not only about sometimes buying more stock of a successful item. It is also about buying new items that appeal to the same shopper as those buying a very popular item.
