Always Be Selling

We have this phrase at work "Always Be Selling". It comes in handy sometimes... a deal feels close, push a little and lock it up. So when one of my co-workers was discussing a new BBQ grill they won, I took the opportunity to try and move the second set of Adirondacks that I assembled at the same time as the NY adirondacks (which are nearing completion). So I'm happy to report that the deal is done. I need another paint color, but she's going to take the chairs.

I've also been working on the designs for a Wishing Well that another co-worker wants for their yard. This project won't be painted (YEAH!) and not cheap either... Let's hope that his interest doesn't fade when he hears the final cost...

Sorry about the paint on your drill. And the floor. And the work bench. Still want me to help?

More than one person has keeled over and been lost forever when a price was quoted for something they wanted. ~;^) I know that from experience. And more than one person has cried her eyes out when the price quoted was way above reach... Sigh... ~:^(

That's the nice thing about doing this as a secondary income, I don't need to haggle! I think my prices are fair, if not on the low side, so I won't feel bad about walking away from some opportunities.
