Good to know. AAC is a small con where he knows people, too, so everyone should be extra-careful!
As a side note, everyone please be kind to the artist friend— as far as we know they’re not complicit in his shit. I hope he doesn’t hurt their con experience too much.
@_@ I googled him because his table is next to mine in the Artist Alley and his link is broken. Now I’m forcing my boyfriend to sit next to him, even though a very talented artist is on the other side and I know he’d like to talk to them about art.
Okay honey listen, I’m not getting into some war with you over this. In all honesty, I’ve sold a few cowls. So I know how much I make off of them and I don’t make that much profit. I should actually be charging more. But I don’t want to. Why? Because I care about how much others would be spending. I like selling, but I am also concerned with my buyer’s happiness.
Also, not everyone crochets at the same speed. So you may take an hour to make a cowl, but I might not.
That’s great that you have an opinion and feel the need to share it with me on my own product. But I think I’m doing okay. Thanks.
This anon is a good example of how NOT to talk to a crafter or artist about our work whether its crochet or something else.
This ‘it probably only takes you an hour’ is a big big insult when people try very hard to make thing.
Price covers a lot of things! if your not charging for materials or time your charging for skills, it could take years for a person to get skilled in something which is worth the price for good craftsmanship!
Crochetmelovely is right to, she should be charging more for a well made hand made product. But she has her sellers rights to charge as much as she wants to for her work, after all is is her work, and if shes happy with it, and her current buyer circle are happy, then thats all up to her.
Its also people like this anon that often drive sales prices down with a lot of other people I’ve seen on the web (by bullying them so they feel their work is worthless), but not only that the market at the moment is flooded with crochet (and other) things people are making and selling and good buyers sometimes have favorite makers they tend to be loyal to etc.
Now to be honest I think people who complain like this are actually usually people who want to buy a thing, but don’t have the money for it, so they take out their frustrations on the seller and make things up like ‘i could do it my self ’ (In that case why don’t you go do that and stop bothering us!) and they use the ‘you charge to much’ card, which is total bullshit and very childish behavior.
There have been people who passed my tables at TOWN events who have made comments like “That’s way too overpriced” or “I like it but I don’t like it THAT much.” (This second comment was made about a $5 pokeball keychain) right in front of me.
It really upsets me when people devalue my work.
