Simple observation at this year's BotCon at various booths, I'm amazed at how little (if at all) people haggle over price. More often than not, I saw people either pay the price on the sticker or what was quoted to them or just ask what a price an item had and then walk off in disgust without even talking about it. It even goes for the dealer's side too. Case in point, I tried to buy a Punch/Counterpunch from a guy there at the Con. $55 for the figure was the price tag. While a fair price, I wanted to save money, so I lowballed the price for $40. The guy wouldn't take it, so I came up to $45. Hesitated, no dice. $50. Just FIVE DOLLARS from the asking price, a fair compromise. The guy then responded "No, the price is on the toy." No wonder there weren't many people buying stuff from him. I saw people buying stuff for outrageous prices without even stopping to think about the price. Didn't even question it. The more money you save with one purchase, the more you have to spend on another, maybe even at the same table. Out of all the figs I got at the con, I think I dealt with only 3-4 dealers, because I felt they were fair. Each one I hit multiple times, because they would talk. They got pretty much what they wanted, I got pretty much what I wanted. A collectible is worth only what the buyer is willing to pay. A dealer usually sets the price he would like to have out of it, sometimes a few dollars higher. It just makes sense. When dealing with each other, communicaton between the dealer and the buyer is key, as is being reasonable. I just can't understand how flippant people can be with their money. I mean yes, it is their money, but be smart about it. Anyone have any other similar observances?
