On Sunday was the last big antique sale put on by the Manitoba Antiques Association. One of my favorite sellers was there bitchin'kitsch'n'kitchen she seriously has items I have never seen in person before which included my holy grail fire king colonial bowls. I am addicted to mixing bowls and had to bring home the last two to finish off my set. She was also kind enough to gift me a few other items I have been not able to find including a lone jadeite dish to finish to tea set! She will be at the W.E.S.T Etsy sale this Saturday November 7th.
Almost every time I get a convo it is from a customer low balling me on an item. I got two "offers" last week which was a record. My shop is priced affordable and I don't rely on it to pay rent but I mean...
I didn't entertain one offer since they owned a vintage shop of their own and I thought that was an odd thing to do to a fellow seller without any type of explanation why and secondly I have been bitten before by fellow etsy sellers who have bought my items only to relist them in their shops for 4x as much money.
The other offer is pictured above I let that one go which turned out to be just fine the shipping was less than quoted and I would have refunded that extra money back so it was pretty much on par with what I was asking.
Is this a thing that just happens to my shop? Do let me know your experiences.
That was my week, how was it for others?
