The pricing dilemma

It has always amazed me how people's perceptions can be influenced and even completely reversed by the simple act of quoting a price.

That "wonderful work of art" is quickly downgraded to "that little thing". This is not a joke, I actually had someone say that recently. They were looking at some of the turned objects I have on display and 'ooing' and 'ahhing' over them. But then it happened, They asked the price.

I'm thinking now that I'm going to put price tags on these items. Better that people understand right off the bat that these things have some value. Then if they still want to check them out, fine.

It might save both us us a lot of time.
