1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / How can I fix this????????????????????? (my sweetie messed things up) on: May 11, 2013 11:57:12 AM
We are having a yard sale and I have put some of my business jewelry out. Things I normally sell for $7 I was selling for $2-$4 because tomm. is mothers day. So anyways Dear Husband (DH) was outside with the sale, I'm indoors with the kids cause it's chilly. He brings me out after about 10min of talking with the guy & he just says to me

customer- "I like your jewelry & your husband said you can make me 25 pairs."

Me-Sure can sir...which were you interested in.

him- this and these...how long will it take you for 25 pairs

DH pipes in---oh she can crank earrings out quick, prob an evening or two

Customer---how about $1 a pair

Me-NO

DH-$1 is just cost

Customer $2 would be double cost then?

DH---ya

Customer to DH while one of the kids came out for me---ok here's my info...25 pairs in 2 weeks for $2 a piece & these are which I want.


sooooooooo DH messed up two things...told the customer that I do em quick (less labor) & told the customer my at cost. I can't very well charge someone knows what it costs me like 7 times that let alone when they know it only takes me a few min...


Here's where I need your help. how do I tell DH to stfu about that stuff without pissing him off? Also customer told me his name & he's a very influential man locally, I recognized his name. Apparently he was also talking to DH about this poss. becoming a regular thing him buying our items to re-sell to some people in his biker club. How do I tell customer I want to up my profits for the next batch?
