In some cultures it is not only accepted it is expected. And if we are to believe that the word’s origins date back to the 16th century then we can’t dismiss it as a Johnny Come Lately.
Do you Haggle?
Most people haggle over the price of a car. Some are very good at it. Some people haggle over the price of other large purchases. Fewer people will haggle over the price of a small item.
Where do you fall in this spectrum?
Have you ever haggled at a flea market? You have? It’s fun isn’t it!
I must admit I don’t come from the ‘expected’ kind of culture, but hey, why not give it a try. I’m willing. Are you?
For the next month I’m open to any kind of haggling. The more haggling the more fun.
The way to do it:
Go to my store on ETSY. Select a digital image item you are interesting in buying such as JAZZ AGE tags, presently priced at $2.50.

Then convo me through contact at ETSY with the dollar amount you are willing to pay. If I think it’s too low, I’ll convo back with my offer. Back and forth until we agree. Once we come to an agreement I’ll make a new exclusive listing just for you with a new price. Voila – we will have HAGGLED.
Whadda you think?
