12.45 PM: Akamai retail traffic up 76% (from 2010) on average at 9PM EST last night: Thanksgiving might be star of the shopping weekend.

12.39 PM: What gadgets and gifts are going to be hot, according to Red Laser. iPad seems to be leading.

8.26 AM: Channel Advisor Early Read on the market:

Here are the early results:

  • Overall Thanksgiving 2011 is trending 15% higher than 2010
  • Marketplaces were up 14%
  • Search is up 13%
  • CSE is up 1%

Within marketplaces:

  • eBay is up 7%
  • Amazon is up 27%

Within eBay, some trends:

  • Auctions were down 37% (makes sense as Auctions are not a great format for holiday shopping – you want to know you are going to get something vs. waiting 7 days)
  • Fixed price was up 13%
  • Parts and Accessories were up 25%

8.29 AM: Obama 2010 gear is on sale today. Seriously!!!
