Im thinking about opening another store but im not sure what category to go into. I currently have a couple of niche stores that do very well for themselves but i want to break into something more main stream, even if there is more compeition.

So what are the best selling category's on zazzle, eg. Funny Shirts, wedding invites, cat mouse mats etc.

Zazzle lists the best sellers on the home page in the right hand column. I reckon they would know best! Or are you wanting to know more from a SK perspective as to what each individual sells best?

there are a few problems about the whole "i wanna be in the most popular niche" thing:

1st no one is going to release that or EVERYONE is going to wanna be in that niche it will be over saturated with bad designs and it will not be most popular anymore

2nd the niche can change as the seasons change - example wedding stuff seems to do great in the spring and wane the rest of the year - and holidays of course are seasonally the best

3rd would you rather be a big fish in a small pond or a small fish in a big pond? in other words do you want to be 1 of 1,000 people in the popular niche and if there are 1,000 sales a month on that topic you get just 1 - or be the only one or one of just a few in another niche which may only get 10 sales a month - but your the only one or one of 2 people there so you get all 10 of those sale or even 5 of them!!

I know over at CP dog stuff did stupidly good (if you had the designs and knew the market) here i get the impression cards and invitations sell a lot better. That's what i want to find out.

As for shopaholicchick's stuff, i feel i can do better designs and ideas than 90% of the competition. Maybe that's true, maybe it's not but even though there is more competition, there are also more people buying in certain categorys. I could add hundreds of designs to my best niches, that doesn't mean i'd sell any more because the views/buyers are not there. I'd over saturate my niche to a point where it'd do more harm than good.

So that's why im looking to see where the buyers are rather than going to a small niche that might not work.
