Mickey191 BS: Craft stalls at festivals (38) RE: BS: Craft stalls at festivals 18 Oct 07


Went to block party where about 20 venders were selling all sorts of great stuff. I was there as a customer. A "lady" and I ended up at the same table where a senior-senior citizen was selling the most beautiful, gorgeous knitted afghans. The "lady" expressed interest in 6 of them & offered the knitter 50% of her asking price. (I hung around just to hear how this would turn out.)

The vender's eyes were tearing as the "lady" was browbeating the seller into submission. I finally could stand it no more - and said loudly:"You ought to be ashamed of yourself - this lady worked hard & long on these & her prices are fair." She stomped off & got in her Benz. The vender was crying by now- & thanked me. I bought one beautiful afghan- white with red butterfies. My thought was the "Lady" probably had a store & was going to sell these with a big mar-up. Otherwise, why try to buy 6 at a time?
