    Default Some days I just have to chomp down on my typing fingers

    I was browsing through my FB and saw two pretty nice quilts, each for only $100, one contained a large amount of large embroidery design. And I see a question below it...

    "Is your price negotiable?"

    I so much wanted to type: "Yeah, sure, if you pay for the fabric, the batting, the backing, and the thread."

    You should have! When I was selling my kids clothes on Etsy I had a lady try to talk me down for a cheaper price on a girls dress. Honestly, do you go to a store and do that? It was a pitiful plea blah, blah, blah.

    People have no idea what a quilt cost. It is our duty to educate them

    I have this really strong tendency to start listing the materials and their actual cost, and I do NOT leave out the thread. And my usual answer to "Is your price negotiable?" is, "yes, I would take more".
