Wear Me Out Vintage Jewels: CUTTING TO THE CHASE - What's your best Price?

Children and dogs know who you are in a instant, they don't care how your packaged, they respond to your energy. It's the grown up people who are often impossible to read. As sellers, your questions, are monumentally important to us. We will stop all of life's normal functioning just to answer you. Food will burn on stoves. Hair color will drip. Innocent by standers will be told to zip it. Recently, I ignored my 120 pound Doberman puppy Chester, better known now as, "the good will ambassador" to the point where when I later went to pet him, he demanded to see I.D.

Lately there has been a distinct sound similar to that of a time bomb, either that or I'm getting messages straight from emergency room workers pagers. The mail reads like this, What is your best price? No hello, how are you, have a banana, lovely item. Some might find this cutting to the chase refreshing. Personally it reminds me of a construction workers cat call. There is a live human or in my case barely alive, now very hunger, with over processed roots, alienated family members and regressing pet on the other end of that mail. I don't need dinner and a movie, however a quick, hey there, is more helpful then you know.

I will freely admit years ago while in the mist of a fabulous sales blitz and equally depleted electro lights to match. I made the mistake of saying what I was thinking out loud. The answer to the potential buyers question was clearly in the description. My response was, put your glasses on! Frankly, a affectionate phase shared among close friends as a catch all for our ever increasing, even in our thirty's, senior moments. There was not just one, but five ranting emails that followed. I had to call in the spam police. As prior articles have proven, not every one gets my humor. For those who do, please read on.

It got me wondering if maybe this Evelyn wood short hand style of communication might actually work out well in other area's of life that eat into our precious time. For instance if you've ever had to negotiate with a new cable carrier, pretty much by hour five you find yourself agreeing that not paying for 500 repeating channels, 450 of which are in languages you have yet to conquer, would indeed be a crime against humanity. If we could just use the unsettling yet time efficient, "What's your best price?" The conversation could clip along. So for 39.99 I get the actually cable cord to hold and for just 120 more then I'm expecting, you will plug it in and I can watch Television how you dictate for the next two years. Why Yes Ma'm, that's exactly right, but don't forget we also include in this offer an exciting game called, We reserve the right to raise our prices at any time, for any reason and dare you to try and do a thing about it. Well then, said, sold and done and all with time left over to say to our spouse, magic's gone, love you, mean it, see ya!

Some might say, it's Just business, not personal. Most of us have made our commitment here on Ruby Lane and Ruby Plaza because it's centered on building great relationships. What other market place would find you carving out life long bonds with your competitors? A buyer called me, I happened to be on a rare brief vacation but figured it was important, she wanted to let me know a event was made from a bracelet she purchased. She had found one just like it at a flea market, she has two daughters and gave it to the older girl. The younger sister clearly admired it. So my buyer set about a literal world wide internet search for this extremely rare and unusual piece, she couldn't believe I had it and she found me. They got to surprise and delight the other daughter. That's a true example of what happens here in various forms, all the time. This is indeed one of the last places left to do just that. I say good business is very personal. I don't mind if you need to cut to the chase, but when you can take a minute and share yourself now that's priceless.
