Sales of late have been very slow. The end of 2021 and the beginning of 2022 were very good.

Sweet. First time getting a mention!

Outside of that, I was definitely hoping that more would have chimed in a bit when it comes to repeat buyers, but it's looking like it's mostly a one and done deal. Maybe if I personally dived specifically into a certain niche or had a larger portfolio, it might be a different story.
