I got angry at a visitor to our sale yesterday.
She came in, immediately said "this is really pricey" then and asked a few questions about the work, said I had obviously gone to school, then said "$50 for that pitcher? It's not worth that much! Is there any wiggle room in the price?"
When I responded "no" she again said "it's not worth that much" then added "I'm a collector, I know"
I responded with "This is what I get for my pitchers, they're handmade, I make the glazes"
"Oh, I know that... it's obvious, it's just not worth $50"
I respond with "I'm not lowering the price because I know someone will pay full price, if not today then soon. "
I found her to be condescending and rude. And I didn't want her to have my pitcher anyway.
Was I wrong?
