A lady wanted to purchase a beautiful hand crocheted dress and spotted a
crafter who did absolutely amazing work, but she charged a good price

The lady thought that her price was way too high so she approached the
crocheter and in quite a brusk fashion stated "I want to buy a dress
from you, but I think you charge too much." The crafter was a little
taken aback but replied "Ok, how much do you think i should charge?" The
lady replied "I think you should charge "X" much, because the yarn will
cost this much, and ribbons this much, and buttons this much. I even
factored in the price of scissors." 

The final price the lady had calculated was a lot cheaper than the
crafters original price, but she said "Ok, deal. You will get your dress
in a week". 

The customer is very pleased with herself and can't resist telling all
her friends what a fabulous deal she has negotiated and how smart she
is, and that in a week she will have her gorgeous crocheted dress. 

A week later her parcel arrives in a lovely packaged box. She opens it
and inside is yarn, ribbons, buttons and even scissors. 

Angrily she contacts the crafter asking "How could you do this to me? I
asked you for a dress and you sent me a box of yarn, ribbon, buttons and

The crafter quietly replies "My dear, you got exactly what you paid for,
if you think there is something missing, you need to pay for it. 

"Moral of the story, when you buy handmade you are not just buying the
materials you are buying the crafters, time, effort, love and dedication
that goes into making your items.
