    Farmers market negotiators 🙄

    Hey they work their tail off and business is sure to dip this coming year..... if you want a bulk deal, that's fine..... but don't haggle over 3 *kitten* apples. Jesus.

    I'd never ask someone, to negotiate their prices. If I am unwilling to pay it, then I don't purchase it. I'll walk away & won't even hint why.

    Really?

    What if it's a high ticket item where negotiation is expected?

    Would you pay the asking price on a car ? ..... A house ?

    If others do what I do, that's the negotiation. They'll either lower the price, without someone asking or hinting directly, for them to do so or they'll choose, not to sell it.

    So you pay asking price ?

    ..... or just not buy it ?

    That's okay; that's your prerogative.

    I always counter offer on something that's a high ticket item.

    Obviously, this approach is only used for very few purchased items.

    The last time I did this it was for a nice watch. I asked & the salesman & he punched up his calculator and said to me: "Yeah, sure, I can do that." Just asking saved a couple of hundred dollars.

    Remember, if you don't ask.... the answer is always 'no'.

    Remember, if you don't ask.... the answer is always 'no'.

    If I am able to afford the asking price, I'll purchase it. If not, I'll look elsewhere for it or something else.

    Heck I've even paid more than asking price, if it was obvious that the price was too low. Though it wasn't a high ticket item, they're never affordable for me. An elderly man, was selling yarn candy cane decorations & while I was complimenting his work, he told me that he does it because he likes to & that he sells them, so that he's able to afford to make more. Meaning he wasn't profiting, so I paid him an extra dollar for the small 1's & 2 extra dollars for the large 1's.
