Bestsellers, Flops, and Things In Between

Bestsellers, Flops, and Things In Between

I don't know about you, but 2023 was a real rollercoaster for me.

In my personal life, I accepted a full time job offer, which surprisingly enough freed up more time and resources for my WhiskeySuitcase life.

While I started the year with the same Philly-centric and smartass keychains and sticker jawns I started this project with, I am ending this year with an entirely new (additional) product line and a growing fanbase across both Etsy and IG: Rent Party.

Because we all love a year-end recap, here are some Whiskey Suitcase stats for you to enjoy!

2023 Misleading Interest

People raved about these and LOL'd in approval when the product was sneak peeked, but disappointingly, very few actually sold.

  • Cheese Earrings (sold 1-2 pairs at vending events IRL, zero online)
  • CREAM Children Ruin Everything Around Me shirts/tanks (sold a few online, maybe 2-3 units)
  • Bowie Inspired Lightning Bolt earrings (sold 2 pairs via instagram DM's but none online or at events)
  • Executive Producer Dick Wolf Keychains (sold well at events but did not get many online orders despite uproarious approval by the IG audience)
  • Mind Your Own Gender Enamel Pins (sell well at events in person, but none sold online)
  • [Not a] Coke Mirror Keychains (sell TOO WELL in person at bars, but not online or during daytime vending events...)

Are any of these surprising to you? What do you think 2024 will bring?
