I've found the camera, but now to find the cord so I can upload some pics...
It's full on summertime now and that means lots of outdoor craft shows and festivals.
I have a question; do you prefer jewelers to display prices on each piece or if it's not showing, would you feel comfortable asking the price? Would it bother you to ask? Does it "cheapen" the work to display prices? Many jewelers simply find the tags unappealing. Some think, "if you have to ask...". Although I don't necessarily like the looks of tags all over the place, there are tasteful ways to do it. In my opinion, I think that easily located prices can make your clients/customers feel more at ease/ welcomed. I'm not hiding anything. I want you to stop and look (and buy). Why make someone wait to ask a price if you're with another client? If I have to ask a price on each and every item...buh bye. Granted, some folks see the prices and keep walking. Then there are those that stay and look and chat (or not) and eventually buy. There's ( I think) a certain expectation at craft shows. Attendees are looking for bargains and don't necessarily want to waste their time asking prices all day. I know, there are exceptions! We love you exceptions! I'm just sayin'.
What about at a jewelry store or boutique? Would you feel differently about displaying pricetags? Are the expectations different? Since it's their shop and their vision, is it okay to not have pricetags to distract from the jewelry on display? Or would you still like to see a price somewhere? This one's a little harder to answer. It really depends on the shop's vision and the customer service. I think you can go either way as long as there's great customer service.
I'd love to know what YOU think.
