  This is my first cyber holiday season and I'm very excited to be selling my jewelry in the cyber community, so to speak.  In fact, I never heard of Cyber Monday until just recently, even though I do shop on line very oftern myself.  Here is some interesting info about Cyber Monday courtesy of Wikipedia:

The term "Cyber Monday" is a neologism invented by, part of the U.S. trade association National Retail Federation.[4] It was first used within the ecommerce community during the 2005 holiday season. According to Scott Silverman, the head of, the term was coined based on research showing that 78% of online retailers reported a significant increase in sales on the Monday after Thanksgiving in 2004.[5] In late November 2005, the New York Times reported that "The name Cyber Monday grew out of the observation that millions of otherwise productive working Americans, fresh off a Thanksgiving weekend of window shopping, were returning to high-speed Internet connections at work Monday and buying what they liked."
