Two Query Results In One HTML Email

I have the following code that I use to generate an email each morning that provides the dollar amount of shipping revenue from the prior day.  This works great and I don't want to change it.  What I do need to do is add a second query that will output it's results either above or below the table that is generated by the existing code.  My problem is that I don't know where to put the extra code (if it's even possible).

Here's the code
----------------------------------------------------------------
DECLARE @tableHTML  NVARCHAR(MAX) ;

SET @tableHTML =
    N'<h2 style="color:black">Daily Shipping Revenue</h2>' +
    N'<table border="1" ALIGN="left">' +
    N'<tr align="left"><th>Date</th>' +
    N'<th>Shipping Revenue</th></tr>' +
    CAST ((SELECT   td = convert(varchar, FIN_TRANS_DT,101), ' ',
      td = SUM(FIN_TRANS_AMT)
      FROM   Eco.dbo.ShippingRevenue
      GROUP BY FIN_TRANS_DT
      HAVING      (FIN_TRANS_DT = CONVERT(varchar, DATEADD(dd, - 1, GETDATE()), 101))
    FOR XML PATH('tr'), TYPE )
    AS NVARCHAR(MAX)) +
    N'</table>';
   
   
EXEC msdb.dbo.sp_send_dbmail
    @profile_name = 'ServiceUser',
    @recipients = 'bw@abc.com',
    @body = @tableHTML,
    @subject = 'Daily Shipping Revenue' ,
    @body_format = 'HTML'
----------------------------------------------------------------

An example of the required output (the top portion exists, it's the pink stuff that I want to add).  It could be an additional table or simply a value (such as a sum or count).
 Exmple OutputThanks for the help.

It would help to have the query you want to add.  To make it simple. you could duplicate everything and change the variable name in the 2nd then concatenate the two.  This will make an email with the same table twice.  Change either query to make show the data you want.

DECLARE @tableHTML1  NVARCHAR(MAX) ;

SET @tableHTML =
    N'<h2 style="color:black">Daily Shipping Revenue</h2>' +
    N'<table border="1" ALIGN="left">' +
    N'<tr align="left"><th>Date</th>' +
    N'<th>Shipping Revenue</th></tr>' +
    CAST ((SELECT   td = convert(varchar, FIN_TRANS_DT,101), ' ',
      td = SUM(FIN_TRANS_AMT)
      FROM   Eco.dbo.ShippingRevenue
      GROUP BY FIN_TRANS_DT
      HAVING      (FIN_TRANS_DT = CONVERT(varchar, DATEADD(dd, - 1, GETDATE()), 101))
    FOR XML PATH('tr'), TYPE )
    AS NVARCHAR(MAX)) +
    N'</table>'
   

DECLARE @tableHTML2  NVARCHAR(MAX) ;

SET @tableHTML =
    N'<h2 style="color:black">Daily Shipping Revenue</h2>' +
    N'<table border="1" ALIGN="left">' +
    N'<tr align="left"><th>Date</th>' +
    N'<th>Shipping Revenue</th></tr>' +
    CAST ((SELECT   td = convert(varchar, FIN_TRANS_DT,101), ' ',
      td = SUM(FIN_TRANS_AMT)
      FROM   Eco.dbo.ShippingRevenue
      GROUP BY FIN_TRANS_DT
      HAVING      (FIN_TRANS_DT = CONVERT(varchar, DATEADD(dd, - 1, GETDATE()), 101))
    FOR XML PATH('tr'), TYPE )
    AS NVARCHAR(MAX)) +
    N'</table>'

   DECLARE @tableHTML  NVARCHAR(MAX)  = @tableHTML1 + @tableHTML2

Just extend your @tablehtml variable. e.g.

N'<h2 style="color:black">Daily Shipping Revenue</h2>' +
    N'<table border="1" ALIGN="left">' +
    N'<tr align="left"><th>Date</th>' +
    N'<th>Shipping Revenue</th></tr>' +
    CAST ((SELECT   td = convert(varchar, FIN_TRANS_DT,101), ' ',
      td = SUM(FIN_TRANS_AMT)
      FROM   Eco.dbo.ShippingRevenue
      GROUP BY FIN_TRANS_DT
      HAVING      (FIN_TRANS_DT = CONVERT(varchar, DATEADD(dd, - 1, GETDATE()), 101))
    FOR XML PATH('tr'), TYPE )
    AS NVARCHAR(MAX)) +
    N'</table>'
+ N'<br>'
+ N'<br>'
+all the stuff you had before except with new table data.

You should then get in the email one table a couple of line breaks and then one more table.

Hope that helps.

This was the best and most helpful feedback.  Thank you both.  I couldn't do what I wanted with just one of the answers, it took both.  The:
+ N'<br>'
+ N'<br>'
Part made it format properly, and the syntax of the first one got it most of the way there.

Thank you both!!!
