I have a booth at our local Sunday Craft Market and usually people are telling me I price my items too low. Last Sunday was different. A lady was looking at my basket of baby socks and asked if I have any larger sizes. I told her I just had one pair of adult socks left. She said she needed a child's size 10 for her granddaughter. I told her I could make them for her and she asked how much. I replied $20.00 and she points to the basket of tiny, baby socks and says, "But they're only $5.00." I grudgingly lowered the price to $15.00, she paid me and went on her way. I am so angry with myself for lowering the price. The sock yarn alone is $8.00, assuming I can get one pair out of a 50g ball. So I'm not using the good stuff. However, she did throw me a bone. She said if her granddaughter likes the socks she'll have me knit another pair. I'm thinking, "Not bloody likely."
Shortly after Gramma Cheapo left an older couple was looking at my wares. The foot in mouth afflicted husband looked at the price of my Cowichan Style Sweater on display and shouts, "EIGHTY DOLLARS!" His poor, mortified wife announced, "And it's worth every penny." as she grabbed his arm and literally pulled him away from my booth.
I love selling at the craft market. It's so entertaining.
