I’m always trying to stay up on the latest trends and top sellers in the online marketplace. So, here is what my research shows as currently the top selling products, for various categories, from major online retailers this fall. If you have products that match these, you may want to move them to the forefront of your website/online store.
Current Top Sellers for Fall 2013
Jewelry & Accessories: Bib necklaces continue to be top sellers but more elaborate ones with colored jewels or ones in all gold or silver; large link chain bracelets and necklaces; cuff bracelets where the ends don’t meet; cat rings; stacks of rings; spike drop earrings; small purses with chain straps; bowling bag purses; skull scarves.
Kids & Baby Products: Woodland animals (particularly foxes); plaid and nautical designs; vintage art that is personalized with child’s name; book jackets of literary classics on t-shirts; superheroes; the color grey for the nursery; giraffes on everything.
