BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: UPS NO LONGER accepts CASH for COD deliveries! PREPAY your order by credit card or be prepared with CERTIFIED FUNDS when receiving orders COD. Larger orders save TIME and MONEY!

AVISO PARA COMPRADORES: ¡UPS YA NO acepta EFECTIVO para pagos contra entrega! PAGUE su pedido con ANTICIPACIÓN con su tarjeta de crédito o tenga listos FONDOS CERTIFICADOS cuando reciba pedidos de pago contra entrega. ¡Los pedidos más grandes ahorran TIEMPO y DINERO!

REMEMBER: Refused or unreceived shipments cost the supplier who pays the shipping charges and passes those fees on to vendors in the form of higher prices or freight fees and stricter rules of prepayment. Everyone suffers when shipments are not received as ordered.

RECUERDE: Los envíos rechazados o que no son recibidos representan un gasto para el proveedor que paga los gastos de envío y luego los transfiere a los proveedores bajo la forma de mayores precios o gastos de envío y reglas más estrictas para los pagos contra entrega. Todos pierden cuando los envíos no son recibidos en la forma pedida.

BOLD BAUBLES, custom jewelry creations and swathing scarves define this season’s trending fashion accessories. Unique lines of quality merchandise, including exclusive Indonesian bead necklaces, clutch bags encrusted with rhinestones, and delightful cell phone decorations are available at a variety of price points in this broad product category. Archipelago brings retailers a distinctive line of fashion accessories, including jewelry, handbags, footwear, belts and headwear, all handmade in Bali or Java, Indonesia. While the company offers an array of 1,500 accessories, its focus today is on its jewelry line, much of which is custom made. “We were purchasing a lot of things that could be found around Bali,” says Scott Taylor, who, along with his wife Emmy Taylor, owns the company. “Now we’re doing things of a more custom nature that you can’t find elsewhere. Many of our products are earrings, bracelets and necklaces that only we have.” New to the company’s line this fall are earrings made of glass beads and satin string. “They are similar to something I saw that sold for around $400,” Taylor recalls. “I recreated them at an affordable price.” The earrings are five inches long and available in two styles and four colors: white, red, black and brown. The wholesale price is $3.99 and retail price is $12.99. Another distinctive product new this fall is a multi-strand, 15-inch long necklace

BISUTERÍA ATREVIDA, creaciones personalizadas de joyería y envolventes bufandas definen la tendencia de la moda para esta temporada. Líneas únicas de artículos de calidad, incluso collares de cuentas de Indonesia, bolsos con incrustaciones de diamantes de imitación, y encantadoras decoraciones para teléfonos celulares están disponibles a una variedad de precios dentro de esta amplia categoría de productos. Archipiélago les brinda a los revendedores una línea distintiva de accesorios de moda, incluso joyas, carteras, calzado, cinturones y sombreros, todo hecho a mano en Bali o Java, Indonesia. La empresa ofrece una colección de 1.500 accesorios, pero hoy en día su foco es la línea de joyería, una gran parte de la cual está hecha a mano. “Estamos comprando muchos artículos que se pueden encontrar en los alrededores de Bali”, dice Scott Taylor, quien junto con su esposa, Emmy Taylor, son los dueños de la empresa. “Ahora estamos produciendo artículos de naturaleza más personalizada, que no se pueden encontrar en otros lados. Muchos de nuestros productos son aros, pulseras y collares que sólo nosotros hacemos”. Un producto nuevo dentro de la línea de la empresa este otoño son los aros hechos de cuentas de vidrio y cadena de satén. “Son similares a unos que yo vi una vez, que los vendían a $400 aproximadamente”,

It has a brown leather strap that goes around the back of the neck, and wholesales for $4.99, and retails for $12.99. “We expect these products to be big sellers,” Taylor remarks. “We focus on providing inexpensive but highend looking products. Both of these products are quite inexpensive, wholesaling for just a few dollars, but look like something that can be worn with an evening dress.” Archipelago is preparing to sell product displays, Taylor notes. “We’ll have fully stained, beautiful wood displays.

Nuestro deseo es que los clientes sean tan felices con nuestras piezas como lo somos nosotros con ellas”. Secret Light está en un proceso de desarrollo de franquicias minoristas y actualmente tiene tiendas minoristas en los centros comerciales del Sur de Florida. “Abrimos nuestra primera tienda internacional en Perú, y próximamente estaremos abriendo más en el mismo país, y también en México y Costa Rica. Estamos muy entusiasmados y orgullosos de esto”, declaró Tovar. “Típicamente, nos gusta que los revendedores tengan un mínimo determinado de pedidos, sin embargo nuestra meta principal es que nuestros productos estén a la venta, por eso es que negociamos cada caso en particular”, ella remarcó.

New GENCO Website GENCO MARKETPLACE, one of Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest merchandise liquidators, has launched a newly designed website, www. gencomarketplace.com, to bring speed and convenience to flea market vendors, enabling them to spend less time sourcing liquidation inventory and more time selling, GENCO announced. Features of the new site include a revised shopping cart for quicker, more streamlined purchasing; improved navigation, which enables vendors to search by product, price or shipping location; drop down menus to detailed product information, including product manifests; and an order history page for tracking past activity, including auctions won and lost. The new site also includes testimonials and case studies from existing buyers, as well as a Buyer Resource Center where buyers of secondary market inventory can find articles on smart sourcing strategies. GENCO Marketplace sells products that can no longer be sold at retail, such as store returns, closeouts and excess inventory, at prices that are well below wholesale. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most of the liquidation inventory available in the market is not factory new, so buyers are concerned with product quality,â&#x20AC;? Tom McElroy, VP of eCommerce for GENCO ATC, a global supply chain company and parent of GENCO Marketplace, shares. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They want to know as much about the lot as possible before they buy so they are not surprised when the product arrives. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why, for each lot, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve included a detailed product description and, where available, a manifest that lists every item in the lot.â&#x20AC;? The company plans to add photos of the actual pallets for sale, so that buyers will have the clearest idea of the merchandise they will receive. â&#x2013;

INDUSTRY NEWS

Philadelphia Vendor Shares Insights AS FLEA market vendors can attest, the profession offers rewards and challenges, so the more educational resources available, the better. Mario S., a 10-year flea market veteran, recently started a blog to help flea market enthusiasts learn what they need to know about markets in the northeastern U.S. Philadelphia Flea Market News posts reviews on markets such as First Fridays Vintage & Antique Market, Uhuru Flea Market at Clark Park, New Castle Farmer’s Market and many more, as well as other information. The idea for Mario’s blog came from numerous phone calls and emails he received from vendors who live outside of the Philadelphia area. “Vendors would ask me what was going on with different flea markets and whether they should sell there. I was like the flea market information guy,” Mario recalls. “I wondered why but I guess it’s because I’m observant, and I retain and ponder things. It turned out that I knew more about flea markets than some guys who’d been vendors for a lot longer than me. I like to write and share information, so I bought a book on how to set up a blog and six days later it was up and running. I get some nice feedback from people telling me my blog really helped them.” Mario himself sells both new and used items at about 20 markets. “I’d like to reach a point where I’m selling 50 percent new and 50 percent used merchandise,” he explains, because popular sellers can be restocked and used merchandise can bring in higher profits. “The things I’m looking into selling at the markets are quality jewelry, sterling silver rings, which tend to sell well. I continued on page 36

bought some body jewelry on liquidation.com and in the city it sells very well,” Mario points out. “I think every other person has some sort of piercing. I was thinking of getting more into that. I’ve done pretty well with the body jewelry in the suburban markets as well. I’ve also been looking into selling clothing.” Designer boots and shoes are very popular, he adds. “I know vendors who buy used UGG boots or Coach boots and shoes, and they sell like hotcakes. Designer and designer-like clothing, people just eat that up.” Mario attributes his successful flea market business, as well as his ability to blog, to being cognizant of what’s going on at the markets. “I know of one flea market that has mostly new merchandise and my used stuff wasn’t selling. There was a guy there selling little

rubber balls that you throw against a wall and he was making a killing. I made a mental note of that.” Contrary to some vendors’, Mario doesn’t blame the economy when sales are down. “I hear from other vendors that business is slower and it’s because of the economy, but I don’t believe that. You’d think that if the economy is bad, that should help the markets. If I have decent quality merchandise and I keep my merchandise fresh, then I tend to make more money. It’s just keeping up with your merchandise.” Read the entire interview with Mario S. on the state of the flea market industry and trends he has been observing in the October edition of First Look, the PROVENDOR newsletter.

us as much this year as it did in previous years.” Editor: How important is your website to your vendors? Dove: “We’re in the process of updating our website. We want a dynamic website and we’re striving to get it to where we can put up new information all the time. It’s taken longer than we would like, but the fire interrupted many of the things we want to do. Our plan is to go to online reservations for vendors so they can pick a spot electronically. The rebuild of this market is well over $3 million and it’s a very large undertaking, so I had to set aside other things.” Editor: As a long-time flea market professional, I’d like to get your input on the legalities of the business. Where do vendors start? Dove: “When vendors contact us, the first thing we do is refer them to our Rules and Rates sheet in which we say it’s their obligation to stay in compliance with all state, county and federal laws. The Rules and Rates sheet encompasses all of our rules for merchandizing, how booths can be set up and hours of operation, and this is one section of it. All the markets that I’m aware of in the NFMA have a Rules and Rates sheet. Maybe some markets wing it, but that would not be advisable.” Editor: How do vendors go about finding out who to contact for licensing and rules information in each state and county? Burton: “We provide contact numbers and web addresses so vendors can go online and do research, or call a person and speak continued on page 44

with them. A lot of our vendors coming in are first time entrepreneurs and we want to help them in that process. Anything that is different than general merchandise is listed in our Rules and Rates. Vendors can find information on anything from selling gas powered vehicles, because that also requires special licensing, to selling cottage food items. For example, items such as food would be listed under the Ohio Department of Agriculture.â&#x20AC;? Editor: Do you help vendors find wholesalers? Burton: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes we do. When we are completely up and running we have wholesaler magazines we subscribe to in the office. Those go along with the new vendor packets we provide that have different

options for merchandise. There are several merchandise sellers in there available to the vendors.â&#x20AC;? Editor: What one thing would you tell aspiring vendors?

Wrapped Up in Mark Ehrmann Jewelry MARK EHRMANN makes the kind of earrings that shoppers can literally get wrapped up in, handcrafted from sterling silver and 24-karat gold. His innovative, yet organic jewelry is based around a wrap design that clings to the ear’s curves, rather than go through it. With pieces that are wearable for ears that are both pieced and not, Mark Ehrmann Jewelry Designs provides earrings for every type of wearer. The handmade Wrap and Vine collections, in particular, can be layered for a look that is truly one of a kind. Today, with so many products made at a rapid pace, Mark Ehrmann Jewelry Designs celebrates the beauty that can be found only in handmade arts.

“I created The Wrap earrings for women without pierced ears, inspired by my wife, my girls and nature,” says Mark Ehrmann, artist and owner. “The Wrap earring fits comfortably over or above the bump on the inside of the ear, and is adjustable for a secure fit. For those with pierced ears, The Wrap combines beautifully with our Vine earrings, or any earrings of your choice.” Ehrmann has been in business since 1984, and has honed his craft since the 1970s when he learned to make hand wrought metalwork in New Hampshire. Now, with his Wraps and Vines, his two styles give the appearance of having gold or silver wires weave continued on page 48

around the wearer’s earlobe, making a statement of clean simplicity. In order to make his jewelry by hand, Ehrman has mastered a number of metalworking disciplines, including the lost-wax process, hand fabrication and soldering, and stone setting. “Depending on the order, we take seventeen steps to complete your earrings,” he explains. “In the industry, you have to figure out how to make jewelry in such a way that your designs aren’t knocked off. Because I have multiple disciplines involved in making each piece, others can’t make my jewelry. That’s allowed me to stay competitive in the jewelry world.” It also virtually eliminates the competition for vendors who sell his work. Earrings sell wholesale for

between $12 and $30 per pair with no minimum order, and can be sold for double to triple that amount. While there are no volume discounts or display cases, Ehrmann has a unique bonus program set up. If a customer pays upfront, they receive an extra 10 percent of jewelry in addition to their order. An order of 100 pairs of earrings, for example, would be shipped with 110 units of the earring style they ordered. “I try to give customers zip code exclusivity,” Ehrmann expresses. “Most importantly, I’m as respectful of buyers as possible.” ■ For more information: Mark Ehrmann Jewelry Designs 6871 Abbott Ave Sebastopol, CA 95472 Toll Free: 800-537-2902 Fax: 707-824-8067 Email: info@markehrmann.com Website: markehrmann.com

White Glove Cleaning Company’s offerings. “It’s really wonderful in the home, because women often like to move furniture around, and pushing a heavy sofa can be difficult. If you get skidders and a Lift Buddy, you can lift the sofa and put skidders under the legs and slide the sofa anywhere you want it to go,” states Barbara Christensen, owner of White Glove Cleaning Company.

Sales Skyrocket with Hot Socks THE COMING holiday season has spirits rising and temperatures dropping, but American Distribution Company, LLC has just the right rescue for frosty and achy feet. The company has been selling Hot Socks for about three years, and the product has held its rank in popularity. “We’re seeing a demand for large quantities of the product,” points out Adam Dawe, president and CEO. “One customer went through nine containers last year, and they always do well around the holidays.” Capitalizing on colder nights and a widespread craving for coziness, vendors who carry Hot Socks are able to offer customers toasty toes, in a convenient and affordable way. With a suggested retail value between $14.99 and $19.99, the socks make an easy gift, perfect for the individual who, “Already has everything.” The popular demand for Hot Socks could be attributed to the recent findings of the American Podiatric Medial Association (APMA), which partnered with the Institute of Preventative Foot Health to release the National Foot Health Assessment 2012. The study notes that nearly 80 percent of American adults experience mild to moderate foot pain on occasion. The pain may be a result of something as serious as a medical condition, such as plantar fasciitis, arthritis, or a sprain, or of something as minor as a day in uncomfortable shoes. No matter the reason, the nation’s feet have been finding relief in the warming abilities of Hot Socks. The innovative slippers are a cost effective alternative for 52

November 2012

customers looking to soothe their feet in the comfort of their own homes. For those in search of cold therapy, which is recommended by the APMA for the treatment of stiff joints, the Socks can be chilled in a freezer to ice away pain, as well. Hot Socks release a lavender fragrance during use, and contain buckwheat beads that maintain heat for more than an hour after they have been warmed. After heating them up in the microwave, the socks slip onto the wearer’s feet, “so all they really have to do is sit back and enjoy the warmth,” Dawe explains. During the marathon runners’ season, which reaches a peak in October and lasts through the fall, Hot Socks are a great seller for athletes in need of relief, following a hard day of training. As an on the go nation that isn’t about to slow down anytime soon, the number of customers asking for Hot Socks can only be expected grow through the fall and winter months. From the ailing to the athlete, Hot Socks have widespread appeal and vendors that tap into this trending product, especially during this time of year, will have the gratitude of every customer whose feet they relieve. ■ For more information: American Distribution Company 3140 Lees Lane Mobile, AL 36693 Tel.: 251-661-0378 Email: mcdonald.adc@gmail.com Website: www.americandistributioncompany.net

pricing for Lift Buddy is $27.50 each for 1 to 35 pieces, $25.50 for 36 to 74, and $23.50 for 75 or more pieces. Suggested retail is $52.95. The Lift Buddy is made of steel and is very durable, able to lift that heavy furniture. When sold in a flea market booth, it creates an open opportunity for demonstrations, and vendors can create an extremely hands-on pitch for flea market shoppers by inviting them to try the product. White Glove Cleaning offers other products designed to make cleaning jobs easier and safer, with future releases slated to include Buddy Movers and Rubber Pads. It is also on the verge of introducing its newest effort in the form of heavy-duty, disposable trash can liners for 96 gallon curbside cans. “Our trash can liners reduce odor, germs and dust, and leave cans beautifully clean and fresh,” states Christensen. The company is dedicated to manufacturing and designing high quality cleaning tools and accessories that help consumers and professionals achieve the utmost in cleanliness and related safety. ■

COMPANY PROFILE

Deals Abound at Kelli’s KELLI’S GIFT Shop Suppliers started to serve hospital gift shops after owners Mike and Lori Cohen sold their own chain of 150 gift shops. The couple had operated the nation’s largest chain of hospital gift shops, but decided that they knew so much about the gift shop business that they would be successful in the wholesale distribution business, working to support small shops. Shortly after the company launched, Kelli’s broadened its customer base from hospital gift shops to include casinos, college bookstores, baby boutiques and flea market vendors. The vast majority of Kelli’s products can be purchased at a much smaller quantity pack size than with competitors, and with a minimum of only $100 the company makes it easy for vendors to get started. Customers can purchase one or two of an item, so there is a decreased risk of buying too much of something. “We also are able to function as a warehouse for smaller vendors who may not have a large retail space,” web manager, Jan Hirsch says. “They can rely on us because our in stock rate is very high, and we can ship anything so that it arrives in three days.” The firm sells more than 3,000 items in categories ranging from fragrances to plush. Animated plush is one of our best selling categories, though Hirsch has noticed an uptick in accessory sales as of late. Many of the company’s available stuffed animals either sing or light up, making them excellent products for vendors to use in demonstration. In fashion accessories, the company’s chenille tweed scarf is new, and has already begun to do well. The cuddly scarf sells for a wholesale continued on page 56

As an example of its customer service approach, Kelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had a customer who ordered several flavors of Russell Stover chocolates last spring. There was a mishap at the customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business, which resulted in the product needing replacement. What was Kelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gift Shop Suppliersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; response? It sent out fresh product to the company, without any questions asked. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We always go above and beyond for our customers, such that they become loyal to us for many years to come,â&#x20AC;? Hirsch points out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The quick turnaround, the variety of products, and the excellent customer service has made us stand out as suppliers.â&#x20AC;?

The company website features a page of sale items offered at deep discounts, a rotating weekly item on special, and this month, there is a fall and seasonal catalog special running for online customers. If a customer spends $395, they qualify for free freight, and shoppers who try at least 18 different items from the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fall catalogue receive 10 percent off of their entire first order, valid through October 31. The company has also been known to throw in point of purchase display racks when customers order a large amount of one item. â&#x2013; For more information: Kelliâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gift Shop Suppliers 3311 Boyington Drive Suite 400 Carrolton, TX 75006 Tel.: 888-609-8860 Fax: 888-609-8861 Email: sales@kellisgifts.com Website: www.kellisgifts.com

Inside Quick Response (QR) Codes QUICK RESPONSE (QR) codes originated in Japan under Denso Corporation, a Toyota Motor Corporation subsidiary, and were intended to hasten the code reading process, while at the same time allowing for more data to be captured in a single scan. Their efficiency was harnessed to help track vehicle parts during the manufacturing process, but has now spread across every industry as a savvy square for sharp consumers. The black and white codes have become such a

popular feature in advertisements, in particular, that they can be spotted on nearly any flat surface, from magazine ads to company cars. So what’s the big deal?

to the Krispy Kreme rewards app or scanning an event into your smartphone calendar, QR codes buy you back those minutes otherwise spent in longer processes. A few technology researchers question whether or not the codes are already becoming outdated, proving to be too much of an inconvenience for customers on the fence about engaging with the codeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s source. This is attributed to connectivity being low in the sense that data plans werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as widespread in the past, rendering QR codes useless when smart devices couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t launch the codeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s associated website. However, interest in using apps is now greater than ever, and as that interest continues to grow, so does the efficiency of codes and readers. Marketers are predicted to continue using these codes moving forward, but with a more cohesive set of goals and messages. With simpler readers for customers and wider awareness of what QR codes accomplish, fluency with the dotty squares may reach an all time high. â&#x2013;

Flea Market News Briefs Flea Market Flip at Elephant’s Trunk

Norton Shows Anniversary Deals

Maxwell Celebrates 100 Years

The Elephant’s Trunk Flea Market in New Milford, CT, provided the perfect autumnal setting Sunday, October 21, for a visit from HGTV’s Flea Market Flip, with mild temperatures, bright blue skies and glorious reds, oranges and yellows in the background. More than 350 vendors and 2,500 shoppers were on hand. Each team of two Flea Market Flip shoppers was given $500 to search for unique decorative objects they would take home and repurpose. The contestants will “flip” their merchandise, hopefully for a profit, as they compete for the $5,000 prize. ■

Nominated as one of the, “Best of Gatlinburg,” the quarterly Norton Show’s apparel, jewelry and gift market celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. Its fourth-quarter cash and carry expo takes place from Saturday through Monday, November 17 through 19 at the Gatlinburg Convention Center in Gatlinburg, TN. Weekend hours are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Monday hours are 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. The show is open exclusively to members of the trade carrying an industry license, and will feature between 500 and 800 booths. ■

In honor of its 100th year, the Maxwell Street Market in Chicago, IL, held a celebration on Sunday, October 21, that included DJ Perfect Sound, local blues man Fernando Jones and his trio, a performance by Linda’s Dance Studio and a performance by local band Low-reen’s Maxwell Street Blues Jam. The market was incorporated in 1912, and before that, it was a Jewish settlement with many family owned businesses in the area. In the coming year, Ndidika Vernon, market manager says he wants to expand the market. ■

Tanque Verde Swap Meet

Rolling Stones at Flea Market

Airport Flea Reopens

Tanque Verde Swap Meet has added Super Sunday events to its schedule, beginning October 21. The first Sunday event featured performances by Danza Azteca Callpulli Tonantzin, an authentic Aztec entertainment experience, a dance performance by Ballet Folklorico Tapatio, and an array of other musical entertainment spread across Tanque Verde Swap Meet’s 30 acres. Nineteen of the acres are dedicated to vending and the remaining acreage is for parking. The market boasts more than 800 vendors selling produce, vintage, antiques, new products and clothing, with a merry-goround and rides to entertain the whole family. ■

Lauren White recently discovered 23 photographs of the Rolling Stones band at a flea market in Saugus, CA. As a local musician who frequents the Fairfax Flea Market, the Topanga Vintage Market, and the Pasadena City College Flea Market, White noted, “You really never know what you can find in the middle of nowhere.” The King Bees were photographed while on a road trip through Georgia and Florida in 1965. A more carefree side of the boys is seen, with a few photographs showing the band around a swimming pool. ■

On Saturday, October 6, the Airport Flea Market and Farmers Market held its grand reopening under the new ownership of Nick and Vince DelCorso and their friend, Andy Orfitelli. The combination flea and farmers market, in line with the current trend of blending types of shopping experiences, is enticing more foot traffic by offering shoppers everything from arts and crafts to zucchini. Vietnam veteran John Riley Watkins, 72, told Hernando Today that he was glad for the opportunity to get out of the house and meet people. ■

HOW TO

How to Strengthen Your Pitch and Profits

Home Of The Most Beautiful Wholesale Fashion Jewelry In The World!!

THERE ARE a few common adages when it comes to negotiations; some say the first person to make the offer always loses, others say the winner is the person more willing to walk away from the deal. Ideally, flea market vendors should strive to create a mutually beneficial “win-win” situation, in which the customer goes home happy and the vendor makes a comfortable profit on the sale. Before getting caught in a nickel and dime dispute, take these four sales tips to heart and transform your customer relationships in six minutes, no gimmicks required. 1) Stay in the ideal mindset by approaching every conversation as though it’s already a negotiation.

This will help you be better prepared for any questions or objections a customer has, because you’ve already laid the framework of your sales pitch from the very first word. If you start strong, you’ll stay strong. 2) Make shoppers fall in love. As many vendors know, flea markets are superb spots for demonstration products. Being able to show, rather than tell, can work to your advantage from a selling standpoint. Merchandise should all be fair game for a test drive, if possible, and once a customer has experienced your product, their attachment to it grows. Free samples work in much continued on page 74

HOW TO How to Strengthen Your Pitch and Profits continued from page 66

the same way. Remind hesitant shoppers that if they love your item now, they will still love it later. The more a customer agrees with you, the better situated you are to close the deal. 3) Mind what you say. Stay upbeat and positive at all times when you work with customers because attitudes are contagious. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give a customer the impression that they are insulting you with a request for a lower price. Instead, steer the conversation toward the value of the product and point out its abstract functions. For example, a toy is never just a toy; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a souvenir to commemorate a day of family fun. Scented oils and herbs are more than home accents; they can make your customers feel more

comfortable on a daily basis. Make broad swings and your â&#x20AC;&#x153;batting averageâ&#x20AC;? will increase. Just be careful with the phrase, â&#x20AC;&#x153;But wait, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more!â&#x20AC;? 4) Finally, listen intently to what your customer is saying. Aside from the monetary value of your merchandise, there are different types of value a customer may place on your products: emotional and practical. Listen to find out if their purchase could be sentimental, a gift for a loved one, or an inside joke that customer has with a friend. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meant to fill a practical need. By listening to what your customers say, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know how to angle your pitch and have more success in sealing the deal. â&#x2013;
